I tried the cover trick with no success. I wanted to get at the iris by opening the camera . After removing a dozen screws, I could not remove the lens becauce of hidden screws. I placed the batteries back in and it works now. No more black screen.

When the camera is on, no images are shown. why is that?


Dunno if this is old info to someone, but anyway id like to add the possible solution here too. To make it available to many who is searching it.

Put the camera in the Tv mode from the dial. (in Record Mode ofcourse) Select 15" from the omnibutton (pressing it left) Take a picture, count to 6 and release the batteries in the middle of everything. With mine this worked with the first time. It is reported that this might require several tries.

The iris is in some weird oil, and it gets stuck.

When you have image again take several pictures (maybe hundreds) to make the "iris" more free. I got this camera very cheap nowadays, alomost free. and it works fine now.

My camcorder is not showing the image on the screen or in the view finder audio is recording


sounds like the Iris control motor is not opening the Iris.....it might be stuck closed or no power to the Iris control motor. when you switch to camera mode, look into the lens assembly, you can actually see if the Iris is opening...if you don't see any movement, then your problem is the Iris, if you do see the iris opening, then your problem might be more severe such as the camera module itself....what ever the case, your camera needs to be opened up for service.
good luck

Unable to veiw image through lens


I have the same problem with my flawless-up-until-today S2-IS. I read in another link the problem is related to moisture causing the iris to stick, requiring a forced reboot. This worked for me, but after putting away the camera for a few days the prblem returned and needed the trick again.

When you turn on the camera and are able to see menus but the image displays are dark, try the following:
1. Place the program selector to "Tv" setting
2. Press the self-timer selector (twice) until you see the timer icon on the screen
3. Press the shutter button to take a photo; the self-timer begins to beep a countdown
4. Open the battery cover BEFORE the timer runs out.
5. After a second, close the battery cover and the camera will power cycle automoatically.
6. The displays should return to normal.
You may have to repeat this a few times to get it to work. Good luck.

Camera won't turn on


Fixed! Several people I've described the problem to asked me if I dropped the camera, and I honestly did not remember dropping it, but I could've just forgot that it happened. Later, (after this was posted) it slipped out of my hand and fell to the carpeted floor. When I picked it up, I noticed that the lens shutter had moved (to be closer together). I turned it on, and after a few automatic adjustments, the camera was working like normal again! Perhaps the same thing that broke it, fixed it!

Overexposure problem after the black screen


Given that the 15' batteries out trick is just a way of forcing the iris to get un stick i think your iris is probably still getting stuck (but this time open a bit).
you could try doing the 15' trick a few more times in the hope of loosening it a bit.
ultimately once you have had this issue i think you are living on borrowed time before it happens again unless you get it fixed by canon.

Overexposure on outdoors shots


i think it is a case of defective apparture system. the system controlling the change of apparture opening has been locked. the reason may be friction in the blade movement or defective flex pcb carring the signal to the apparture motor.

PROBLEM WITH LCD AND FINDER SETTING


If you can see images in play mode, previously taken pics, then check to see if iris is opening and closing, could be seized vanes on iris motor. If nothing is ever visible on LCD or the eyepiece, this is what the manual has to say- remove batteries, reinsert them after a minute. If it persists press the reset button with a fine tip, its located inside the memory stick/battery cover. all your settings will be cleared. Use your warranty if valid Good luck
