Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
T certainly sounds like a CCD sensor problem.
I suggest you phone Canon support and tell them the problem and that you suspect the CCD.
Ask for a repair quote for a CCD replacement.

SOURCE: Canon S2 IS black screen
Amazing, i did not beleive my S2 IS would start working with these instructions until I realized it. It works but perform as instructed. I think the removing batteries exactly after 7 seconds is essential. It did not work well when i removed the batteries immediately i made a shot. Although the black screen does come back after i go to review mode when i switch it off and then switch on my camera works just normal.
Thank you so much for this solution.

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 this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
For your particular model camera, pay attention to the UPDATE intro to the article.
