Question about Canon PowerShot S200 / IXUS 178 Digital Camera
I have a powershot S200 and i have had it for a couple years..Every since this summer, i can turn it on in playback mode and look at pictures but when i switch to camera mode it goes black. When i press the power button when it's on picture mode the zoom lens comes out and the little screen opens but then it goes right back in, meanwhile the screen remained black and a little E24 appeared at the bottom of the screen on the left. What do i do???

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
