Canon Powershot s2 - Blank screen problem

Dear Manoj,

Saw your earlier revert on this matter.... How much does the service center charge for fixing the blank screen problem

Is there any self-help solution to this problem?

Rgds,
Vikram.

Blank screen on Canon Powershot S2is camera


hi.if you are telling both viewfinder and lcd are blank or black the problem is in the shutter that you found inside of the lens are not open.sometimes the cuase of the is humidity or moist goin inside of the shutter thats why it will not work properly or stuck up.if you can open your camera and adjust the shuuter from lens unit its better .but if not its better you bring to service center and request for adjustment.

by the way try also to reset your camera to default setting maybe it will help you.

thank you

Canon PowerShot S2 IS camera showing code E18


Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.

Your camera has the know issue of Stuck shutter, whichhappens after some time (weeks or months) thata camera is notused.

Unfortunately the repair of it requires a complete disassembly of the camera, including the lens, fix it, and then put back together everything.

Definitely requires th skills, tools and experience to do it, so it's recommended that a professional camera repair center is performing this type of repair.

If you look for a reliable and low cost repair service for it, you can look in ebay for such repair services.

Example, look for seller ID Great_items_2004 or with the keywords "Shutter black S2".

Best regards,

Canon powershot s21s problem


I had what Canon suggested was a ccd image sensor problem with my S2 IS, did as they suggested, filled out their form, printed it out, talked to a rep about the problem, sent the camera in to their service repair, only to hear from them that their solution was to let them repair it for $127.00, or purchase a, get this now a "refurbished" newer model S3 IS for $175.00 with a 30 or 90 day warranty on it..HAHAHAHA...why on earth would anyone add an extra expense to what the camera's value was at purchase in my case the cost for the camera was $349.00, or buy the next step up from and S2 to an S3 IS, that has already been refurbished for whatever reasons for $175.00...and hope that this camera screwed up before the limited warranty expired..and by the way I had only had my S2 IS for 18 mos.
In my opinion Canon needs a class action law suit filed against them for not honoring a product that has a history with the image sensor, refering to the S1 IS...and now already wanting to replace an S2 with a refurbished S3...DON'T THINK SO..

Hey Everyone, First of All, please Don't Panic. The CCD ( sensor ) defect / Black screen of death problem is on the rise. Its becoming a common issue with the S2 IS owners. Send in the Camera with this completed form ( http://consumer.usa.canon.com/app/pdf/dealer/FSC.pdf ) Mailing Address CANON FACTORY SERVICE CENTER 1440 CHASE AVENUE Elk Grove Village, IL 60007 (630) 250-6500 Briefly explain the situation and request for a courtesy repair. Good news is that Canon is repairing the Problem at ZERO Charge. I'm certain that in the next few months Canon would issue an Advisory for a product recall as in the case of S1 IS. S2 IS is a beautiful camera and Canon's customer service is fabulous. Hence please don't spread negative stories about Canon. Regards, Varun A Proud S2 IS owner
