Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
I had the same black image problem with my Canon S2IS. Originally the "getto fix" (set Tv mode and 25 second shutter time, activate shutter,open battery compartment) restored function after several tries, but now it no longer works and the camera has become an expensive paperweight. I ain't happy with Canon!
I had the same problem here in America and had a run around from Canon, but they finally took my S2 IS in for a checkup and found the problem so many S1 IS and S2 IS had with the symptoms you have. It was the shutter sticking. Mine was only a few months out of warranty and they did a free one time courtesy repair they say. Many in other countries have to pay to get it repaired. Canon should have recalled it as they did on the S1 IS. They did not! The way to know it is a sticking shutter is to look down the lens with something to magnify the opening and you will see the shutter stuck closed and nothing happens except the shutter sound. The display shows a blank picture taken. All menus worked fine. There is a forum about this with hundreds of Canon owners frustrated about it.
