Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
When I try to start the power shot, at first I hear a repeated clicking that continues and the screens don't light up and the zoom lens won't come back in when shut off... also, there is a final rapid three beep before it shuts off..
The problem that you described is frequently battery related. Make sure that your batteries are the correct type for the camera, and that they are fresh/fully charged. If the batteries are OK, the problem is frequently due to corrosion on the contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, wipe the ends of the batteries, and replace them in the camera. This cleaning process works about 90% of the time, and I hope that it cures your problem.
