Camcorder won't turn on ¶
I’ve tried everything, but the camcorder will not turn on.
Hold “power” button for five seconds until turned on ¶
Make sure you held the power button.... till turned on.
Check your battery make sure it’s fully charged ¶
If your camcorder won't turn on, Press reset button and try again….if this does not work you can find batteries for 890 amps at any local electronic store.
Cracked/scratch screen ¶
The only solution for a Cracked/ Scratched screen is to replace it with a new one.
This Canon Vixia HF S10 Camcorder LCD Screen Replacement guide will show you step by step on how to replace a screen.
Jammed buttons ¶
A common problem when concerning a camcorder is the use of a heavy press on the buttons. ¶
This will cause your buttons to jam. More than likely you will need to simply “pop” the button out of socket so that it can take its original form. This usually does the trick.
This Canon Vixia HF S10 Camcorder Power Button Replacement guide shows you how to replace a jammed power button.
Audio problems ¶
If you are experiencing audio issues, it is possible that the speaker may be out. ¶
Before you buy a new speaker, check the volume to insure it is not on mute. If you are still not able to hear any audio then the speaker must be out. You can buy a new speaker at your local electronic store. Here is a Canon Vixia HF S10 Camcorder Audio Replacement guide you can follow to replace your audio.
