Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Where to get parts?

I made the mistake of buying a 'referbished' camera off ebay from Well it did come with a year warrenty but I was not aware I needed to send anything in. So of course, a few months later now I have problems. I believe its my CCD sensor or whatever you call it. I cant not see an image or scene when I am trying to take a picture. THe LCD works because I can view older pics off a memory card and the graphics and menus work. So I guess what i am asking is where I can get the part or parts I need. I cant find anything anywhere online. But I am assuming it would be cheaper if some how some way I can just order and replace the part myself. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: Where to get parts?

From a similar solved problem: I have read of this problem (doing research before buying a Canon S2). Apparently it is a bad sensor and Canon will fix it for free if it's still under warranty (otherwise it will cost $119.00). and I have the same problem. Just got off the phone with Canon and have to send the camera to them. Repair takes ~2wks. Call them @1-800-828-4040 and follow the menus. Canon's site also addresses this for the S1 and others (but not the S2). Says heat and high humity can cause a connection to the sensor to come undone. Hope this helps.

Fujifilm j38 lens is stuck in the camera

You forgot to pull out after the lens was pushed in on the side. That mistake makes it very expensive to fix. If you buy the same parts camera with a bad lcd on ebay. You can have your good lcd replaced on the ebay parts camera. Replacing lcd is an easier job.

Contact Canon. They answer such questions all the time, If the 2nd year warrenty came from some store like Best Buy, contact them. They won't rip you off. They want you back for your next camera.

How much screen 4 lxus30 canon is the best place to look for. If you buy the LCD itself it is usually expensive. For example, Try the following email. They replace the LCD:

But I would suggest you to buy a used camera (one sold for parts, with good LCd) through and replace it yourself. You only need to buy a jewellers screwdriver set for $1 from Dollar store. Removing the case is easy (5-6 screws). Once the case is removed, LCD is immediately accessible.

You can buy any one of the cameras:
Canon IXUS 30 40 50 SD200 SD300 SD400

They all use the same LCD. So look in for the above cameras. You may be able to get it for under $10-15. But before you do anything look at the following web sites to get an idea on how to do the job:

CCD sensor

This is such a specific request, I'll assume you know what you are doing ..... the ccd sensor is quite a difficult part to change.

From my perspective, best option would be to find a donor body thats defective in a different way. There are lots on eBay ....

One thing you might consider is buying a reasonable secondhand one - again from eBay they are less than $50 ......

Finally, Canon had a recall on the A75 for bad sensor problems - I'm not sure if you qualify, but .....

Hope this helps

Black-n-purple viewing screen my fuji s700 (s7000) camera

Sounds like a bad LCD as I had a similar experience with a different brand. The part itself is probably not very cheap... but if you have $120 you could get the same camera, referbished.
