Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it without disassembly. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

SOURCE: "Canon powershot s2 is" not showing live picture

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 the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras, ESPECIALLY for the S2 IS (you should actually complain to Canon at 1-800-OK-CANON. If it is indeed a sticky shutter, they have been fixing this for free). 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. Hope this saved you $99.

I want users manual for a Canon Powershot Digital Camera S2 IS


Canon has the documentation for the Powershot S2 IS on their product page. The Brochures and Manuals Page, http://usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_g_series/powershot_s2_is#BrochuresAndManuals , has the manuals for both the camera itself and many of the Canon Tools for the camera. The direct link to the User Manual for the Camera is http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/5/0900011235/01/PSS2ISCUG-EN.pdf .

If you have any problems with the direct link, start at the Canon Powershot link that I gave. You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

I hope this helps.

Canon S51S power shot ... shutter stuck won't open . Help .


Either do a manual repair or take it in to a local servicer. Could just be some moisture built up inside.

Camera - Canon Powershot S2 IS (5.0)


This is caused by a bad lens motor, contamination in the transmission, or mechanical damage from dropping. The only fix for this is to have it serviced by Canon or other camera repair facility.

Canon powershot s2 1s digital camera blurry pics


The lens assembly needs a repair service.

Either it as internal damaged parts, or a moving part got stuck.

This mean a professional repair service for it.

The cost of it may be $120.00 or more in most camera repair centers.

Best regards,

I have the same problem with my S2 IS. The problem occured more frequently over time. Somewhere I read that this is due to a stuck shutter. I'll keep you posted once my camera is repaired.
