Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
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:

This sounds like you're having a problem, either with the shutter mech inside the lens assembly, or else the CCD is not functioning. The unit will have to be serviced, unless you can free up the shutter assembly. You might try blowing compressed air inside the lens assembly, or bumping the camera slightly, on the side, in the hope of freeing up any dirt, lint, or sand that may have worked its way inside the assembly.
Other than that, the camera will have to be serviced. Here's Nikon's support site:
Good luck, and hope this helps.
