Hi Markus, thanks for your reply. I am not aware of this cameras history, but it is in pristine condition. WHen I connected it to computer via USB, nothing happened when I tried to switch it on. The lens is in the camera off position. The camera in question is a Canon Powershot Pro1.

Thanks Markus. Here is the image of the camera's battery compartment. There appears to be what could be a switch below the battery connection rods. ANy thoughts? Hopefully you can see the image and it is large enough to see the detail.

I can see the picture(changed from .large to .huge). but i didn't see anything special.

the main problem with the camera is the complexity of possible problems. it can start with "full but dead" batteries and go to bad or loose connections inside the camera. i don't know how far you could/would go. CLICK here to read something about dead cameras. a pro1 teardown could be found here. this is only to show you what would come in the next step

HI,

I was gifted a Canon Powershot 1 Pro.

We are having a bit of trouble making

the zoom lens extend beyond the 28mm

mark. In other words no power zoom.

Also manually extending the zoom

feature is hit and miss. The quick use

guide is not much help.

thanks,

two old camera dummies
