Canon puts out PowerShot service advisory

updated 01:30 pm EDT, Tue October 9, 2007

PowerShot light leak

Canon has issued a service advisory for one of its prominent compact cameras. Select models of the PowerShot A650 IS have been determined to have a light leak, potentially ruining photos. The issue only affects the camera in specific conditions, however: the LCD screen must be unfolded, and the surrounding lighting must be high, as in daylight. Furthermore, while owners should check whether their camera has a zero in the serial number's fifth digit, even models with that zero may be unaffected if they have a special marking inside their battery cover.

Should a camera be affected, Canon is offering to repair it for free after contacting customer support via or 1-800-828-4040.
