Hello Denise! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry, this is a known issue with this camera model; there is a disconnected part inside the camera.

I suggest not to disassemble the camera yourself as Canon will repair this for you free of charge, regardless of the warranty status. Please contact a local Canon authorized service facilities:
