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.

I have a power shot S2 IS digital camera. I have


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

For your particular model camera, pay attention to the UPDATE intro to the article.

Canon sliding lens cover door


I have been having the same problem. Once opened, the sliding door will not close and the lens won't retract. But I have found that if you plug the camera into a computer via a USB, the lens then retracts enabling you to close the lens cover.
I'm still trying to find a way to fix this problem, since this is a great camers and still takes fantastic pictures.

Canon a 310 takes so long to take a second picture, very slow


I have an A310, and really like the quality of the pictures and videos it takes. But what you describe is not unusual for this particular model camera. Lag between shots in bright sunlight is usually minimal, but may be very pronounced in darker conditions. It's caused by inefficient and slow charging of the camera's flash capacitor.

There's nothing you can do to modify the design of the camera to change this. But you can try to minimize this some by using batteries with higher power rating. Alkaline batteries will not work very well in this camera, even if brand new. Would instead recommend that you consider rechargeable NiMH batteries. They run about $7 these days for a package of four. But they'll save you big bucks in the long run. Look on the package for power rating of 2,500mah or better.
