Question about Canon PowerShot SD890 IS Digital Camera
My camera is Power Shot S2IS. If I can get it to work at all ,I have to turn it off and then on. Also the 12X zoom does not work. I am using new batteries. The camera has never been dropped or gotten wet. Is my camera a wreck?
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.
