    Same problem. Started with no image on the LCD screen when opened to take pic, but would display a picture that had already been taken. Not happy with that, but lived with it. NOW- when camera is turned on, the lens extracts but the view finder is black, with the exception of the digital displays. Seems like shutter is stuck(?). going to call Canon. Bought camera new about 1 1/2 yrs. ago, have taken the utmost care with it. Paid good money. Very disappointed. Great camera when it's working...

Please see similar problem titled "black screen". Welsbar posted a possible solution as a clarification request. It involves switching your picture mode to TV and changing the shutter speed to 15 seconds, depressing the shutter button for 7 seconds, then opening battery enclosure. Repeat as necessary - I did this twice before I started to see anything on the screen. Twice more before photos start to look okay. Don't know yet if this is a lasting solution, but at least now I can start using the camera again and find out!

According to Welsbar, the problem is an internal part (iris?) that gets stuck when camera hasn't been used frequently.

Using my Canon SH Power Shot SX60 SH Camera, Today I to took a view more shots and it just keeps giving me the ERROR Message(memory card error)I have Valuable pic's on this card and now don't open up.


Your card may be full, or else corrupt. Either way, replace it immediately. If it can be read in your computer, copy all the photos to the hard drive. If not, then find a friendly computer-tech who can run image rescue software on it for you.

Transferred pics from computer to card and the camera will not display them - all are jpeg just like what the camera takes. These were from the camera but I wanted them back on the card also.


once out of the camera & deleted form the card, the camera will not display any of the images because it does not have that function. even jpeg images being the same format cannot be viewed.

You might have a mecanical problem at the lens. The only way to surely fix this is at a local electronist or Canon dealer. Trying to repair it yourself can render the camera unusable and unrepairable.

Factory reset Cannon PowerShot S2 IS


I found this solution elsewhere, so I can't take credit for it. It seems a small piece of dirt gets stuck between the camera case and the button to take the picture. The button doesn't release fully, and it acts like the shutter button is pressed halfway down. Try running your finger over the top of the button in a circle to release it.
