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.

My Canon S2 IS works fine except the display will not provide picture viewing capability when I turn the camera on for picture taking. It will display photos from the memory card. The viewer is black for...


Your camera has the know issue of Stuck shutter, whichhappens after some time (weeks or months) thata camera is notused.

Unfortunately the repair of it requires a complete disassembly of the camera, including the lens, fix it, and then put back together everything.

Definitely requires th skills, tools and experience to do it, so it's recommended that a professional camera repair center is performing this type of repair.

If you look for a reliable and low cost repair service for it, you can look in ebay for such repair services.

Example, look for seller ID Great_items_2004 or with the keywords "Shutter black S2".

Best regards,

Black screen for Shooting Canon S3 IS


I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

I tried their solutions twice and it WORKS. My S3 is working fine now.

Canon S2 IS turns on but Displays No Photos


Don't use cheap batteries - use the alkaline ones, as the CCD needs a fair bit of power. I had the same problem, and fixed it by using decent batteries.
