Can CHDK Help Me Fix my S90?
« on: 21 / October / 2011, 14:34:46 »

My S90 works brilliantly... except that the on/off button only works 10% of the time. The "view photos" button can be used to turn on the screen, but to turn on the camera/ open the lens, need the on/off button to work.

Can I use CHDK to re-assign the on-off functionality to another button, like the "shortcut" button, for example? Any other way to use CHDK to work around the hardware breakdown in the On/Off button?

Thank you so, so much!!

No you can't change the buttons this way in CHDK - CHDK is loaded after the cameras normal startup.

If you start the camera with the playback button then pressing the shutter should switch to record mode.

CHDK ports:
  sx30is (1.00c, 1.00h, 1.00l, 1.00n & 1.00p)
  g12 (1.00c, 1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
  sx130is (1.01d & 1.01f)
  ixus310hs (1.00a & 1.01a)
  sx40hs (1.00d, 1.00g & 1.00i)
  g1x (1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
  g5x (1.00c, 1.01a, 1.01b)
  g7x2 (1.01a, 1.01b, 1.10b)
