Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
The last couple of times that I used my camera, after taking a couple pics, it would shut off when I pressed the shutter button. All other functions would work (video, menu buttons, etc) I took the batteries out and let it sit for a couple of days. It worked for that day (Prom Pics) but a week later after about 20 pics, it started to turn off again. It also would respond very slowly to the on and off button, Can this be fixed or should I give up on it?
I'd try replacing the battery first. It is common for a low power battery to not allow the camera's computer to read what it is supposed to do correctly. If the new fully charged battery doesn't fix it, I'd then contact customer service.

TRy and reformat the CF card through the camera. Youll lose the pics for sure but you cant see them anyway. You can also check for bent pins in the CF slot. Sometimes if you shut down the camera in mid write to the card, itll mess up the cards FAT (file directory)

For the lens error:
For the black pictures (after you've corrected the lens error):
Note, if you're going to try fix 5a on the above blog page, do it with the camera turned off to lessen the chance of damaging the lens.

its just a matter of batteries...some are not powerful enough to operate the camera ....Try to change them and buy some real good ones..like Duracell or Tatra...do not make any compromises when buy the batteries...get the best cause these kinda cameras really require powerful ones...or ...try to get a set of rechargeable ...

Testimonial: "I new it must have been a simple solution. Camera has been a little gem. Thanks :)"
Try this: remove the batteries and memory card....press every button...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the battery and then the card....turn it on.

If the menus come on but there is no video or picture from the lens, that is usually the CCD which is a sensor in the camera that picks up the image. If you need to have it fixed, it's only $79 total for the parts, labor, the servicing for the camera included and even the shipping back. Go to: www.CamerasAndParts.com They just service these Canon Powershots exclusively and they are excellent for service on these. Your exact issue is on their site, it's $79 for everything and they do superb work on these models. I hope that helps, good luck with the problem.
