Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Canon S2 IS (3+ years old) has gradually

My Canon Powershot S2 IS (3+ years old) has gradually developed a problem. Sometimes the screen goes blank, and I have to turn the camera off and back on to get the camera back to where I can take a picture. Also, sometimes when I take a picture really zoomed in, the picture is out of focus. I've called Canon and am told that there's a problem with some kind of sensor and that the repair would cost $139 plus s/h and sales tax but that I could buy a new Powershot SX 10 IS from the factory for $200 with my camera trade in. I just want to know if there is something more I can do before I take any action. I don't feel like I have enough information yet to make an informed decision. It also just doesn't seem right for a 3-year-old camera to be having problems at all.
Thanks.

Pink lines on canon powershot a95 camera. also when in shooting mode, camera screen flashes- like it is trying to set light levels.


Sensor gone bad. Factory defect. Canon had recall about that a few years ago. A bunch of sensors produced by one of their suppliers (also used in other brands) turned out defective. They repaired my A95 (well past warranty) for free a couple of yeas ago when it developed that problem. Don't know it they still would. Contact them.

E18


E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash module as this can give a nasty shock.Big black capacitor) You will see the lens module take the it to bits carefully and re seat the components. I have done a few over the years. It takes about an hour. If you have any more issues contact me.

Camera goes on but lens and zoom do not work


I saw a post suggesting removal of batteries for 24 hours to reset camera, then try brand new manufacturer recommended batteries.... (my wife informed me that my 3 year old dropped ours....... i know there is a moral to this story.... but try the 24 hour approach to see if it resets... otherwise probably not worth fixing...good luck
