Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
I have an Canon S2IS. I have been using this camera last 3 years, lately i am facing the problem of " change the batteries". I have changed all the 4 batteries with new ones and also replaced CR1220. I have cleaned the battery contacts, but still the problem persists. This problem happens when i shoot pictures, could be 5 pictures 20 pictures or more.. I mean anytime i shoot the picture.
This worked for me after having the persistent "Replace the batteries" problem for about a year straight.
1. Reset the camera, according to the instructions in the manual. (Power on, hold MENU for 5+ seconds, select “OK”, wait, turn camera off).
2. Remove the date/time battery for two minutes (the tiny one in the battery compartment in its own little plastic holder). Replace after 2+ minutes.
3. Important: Insert freshly charged batteries into the camera.
I tried everything short of getting a new camera, and this was the ONLY thing to work for me. Its also simple enough that it takes 3 minutes to do, in case it were to ever happen again while on vacation, etc.
Good luck and I hope this helps.
