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.

I have a Cannon PowerShot S2 IS digital camera, about 5 years old. The LCD Monitor and Viewfinder both only show a black screen with some of the Dispay Icons across the top and bottom, and after a few...


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, sometimes with lines, 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.

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. :)

Malfunction?


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.
