Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Display is white inside & out

When I open the display panel the display is white. No caption, no icons, no image. When I change to the viewfinder display, it is white, too. I've tried new batteries, different SD card, and a reset-to-defaults. What could it be?

Try hooking it up to your PC and using the REMOTE FEATURE, see if you can change the whiteness lvls from there or see anything on you pc, if you can then your lcd screen is shot and might need to be replaced or checked at your local service place.

    To get to remote Feature hook up your camera and open up the drive label camera or removable drive/hardware. It should be the feature all the way on the right.

Blured viewfinder

Look at the viewfinder on the camera.

Now look on the LEFT side of the viewfinder; just above the swivel-screen.

You will see a little thumb wheel there.

That is the focus for the viewfinder. Move it up and down to bring the viewfinder into focus. (Don't forget to do this while you are looking through the viewfinder so you can see what you are adjusting.)

Easy fix. :)

If the LCD display is open, the viewfinder becomes inactive. Shut the LCD display, and the image should appear through the viewfinder. If there is still no image, the camcorder may require service.
