problem with canon camera

    My parents have a Canon S1 IS camera. It has recently stopped taking
    photos. It acts like it is shooting, but only shoots a black photo.
    The screen works fine as I can review older photos. I suspect the
    shutter is not opening.

    Any idea if I can fix this myself? I suspect Canon's repair service
    would cost more than just buying another camera.

    You should try to slam the camera, with all your might, against a hard
    surface like concrete or steel. Again and again and again. Forever.
