Have a 4-5 yr old Canon S2 IS PowerShot A75 Digital Camera. The batteries are new &/or charged but the camera won't always work reliably - says to change batres. but if I just open the bat. door...

Sometimes, the lower contacts get bent downward after years of use, causing the batteries to ride low in the compartment, and thus making poor contact when the battery door is closed. Try lifting/bending these interior battery contacts upward, so that the batteries ride higher when inserted.

Won't shut off or take pics. code E18 comes on

Try removing the batteries and cleaning the contacts inside the battery compartment with a cotton swab "dampened" with rubbing alcohol. Also you'll want to clean the battery and charger the same way. Thank you, Dana

I have a Canon PowerShot S2IS that gives me a black screen and a "change batteries" message even with new batteries. Is there a way to re-set or re-boot the camera?

Try cleaning the battery compartment contacts with a cotton swab "dampened" in rubbing alcohol. Also clean the battery contacts and the charging station the same way. Thanks, Dana

Short battery life


If you are experiencing short battery life with a rechargeable batteries try the ff:

  • recondition the battery by draining the battery
  • charge the battery but when it is full reconnect the charger (do this until the charging indicator is not lighting even if you reconnect the charger)
  • try to use other batteries
Hope this help

Call Canon tech support. It's free support and you may end up coming out cheaper by upgrading your camera through their Canon Loyalty program than having it repaired.

S2 suddenly draining batteries rapidly

I have the same exact problem. I just now read a possible solution: try opening the battery compartment door and then closing it again to "trick" the camera into thinking it just got new batteries. There is definitely something wrong with the way the camera senses dead batteries.
