Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery getting exhanusted

When I insert new 4 AA batteries in Canon Powershot S2, the batteries are exhausted after taking ahrdly 5-6 snaps. I have tried doing this thrice by inserting absolutely new batteris. Is there a problem with the model I am having or have I done some settings which have suddenly increased the power consumption.

Sounds like you need to call Canon. I use Energizer e2 batteries and take 700 pictures and several videos during a show I attend and still have battery life. Even with normal batteries you should be able to take several hundred pictures. Are you still under warranty?

Have a 4-5 yr old Canon S2 IS PowerShot A75 Digital Camera. The batteries are new &/or charged but the camera won't always work reliably - says to change batres. but if I just open the bat. door...


Sometimes, the lower contacts get bent downward after years of use, causing the batteries to ride low in the compartment, and thus making poor contact when the battery door is closed. Try lifting/bending these interior battery contacts upward, so that the batteries ride higher when inserted.

Contact failures may have occurred between the camera and the batteries.


Confirming that the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] is securely closed

If the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] is not securely closed, the power of the camera may not turn on.


Close the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] securely, and then turn the power on.


Clean the battery terminals with a dry cotton swab that has a fine and soft tip, and then re-insert the batteries.

If your camera uses four AA-size alkaline batteries supplied with the camera, follow the procedure below. In addition to Alkaline batteries you may use optional nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries.

1. Be sure that the camera power is off.

2. Slide the battery cover lock in the direction of the arrow, and push the battery cover slightly forward. Then open the cover.

Hmmm. With this, I suggest looking through your settings and trying to find a "power saver" setting. If that doesn't work, you could report the problem to the company. They should switch out cameras if you still have your warranty.

A580 wont switch on with new correctly inserted batteries


Check for battery current ratings, Canon cameras need AA batteries with current rating above 1200 mAh, I use Energizer rechargeable batteries for my Canon Powershot SX110 IS. The batteries last more if we use the flash option wisely.

My Canon S2 IS keeps saying 'change the battery' even if I put the new batteries in. Why...? Thanks.


there is a little coing battery located inside the battery compartment for the AA's. CR1220 you can get this at Radio Shack for about $5. If this battery is bad you will get the change batteries screen no matter how many fresh AA's you put in, Use a good quality alkaline battery such as the Energizer rechargable rated at 2700 mAh.

My Canon power shot S2 IS does not detect the batteries


There is a battery charge level sensor in the DC/DC internal converter board.

It seems that just started to fail such board.

You can try with other brand or type of AA batteries.

If still you have the same problem, you will need to have replaced the DC/DC converter board on your camera. This means a Camera repair shop service on it.

I just fixed mine. Put your memory card into your computer. Right click on it. Choose format. Reformat the memory card. You WILL lose all pictures stored on it.

Before putting the memory card into your camera, do the following.

Go to MENU and choose RESET ALL.

Choose reset to original settings.

When camera is done doing so, turn camera off.

Reinsert memory card after it is done being formated in your pc.
Then your camera and memory card should work great again. I just did it on my Canon Powershot A620.
