Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

Open Question

Use recharable batteries - Black screen - change batteries mess.

We purchased the S2SI in 05. Has worked great until recently. We just purchased new rechargable batteries, charged them and put them in. The camera comes on in playback mode but when switched to shooting mode we get a black screen and the "Change batteries" message. So I have been messing around and put the old rechargable batteries in that weren't working any longer and the camera came on in shooting mode. Put the new batteries in and it also turned on. Any ideas why rechargables would just stop working in a camera or have shortened life?

Some cell phone dealers will replace the screen. It will cost you though. To replace both screens on this phone will cost about $60-$80 depending on the repair shop.

SOURCE: Cannon Digital Rebel xt died will not turn on , recharged nothing

Hello,

I think you have a faulty fuse (there are three in total) inside the camera. The fuse might have blown because of bent pin for the memory cards or a faulty cf card. In wich case, you have to repair it yourself, there are pages on the web that describe what you have to do (search for fuse and 350d), or send it to a canon service center ( they will change the complete motherboard because the fuses are soldered to the mainboard and they won't change them)

Sorry budddy

SOURCE: The DS won't hold a charge, even when plugged in.

Sounds like the battery has burned out.

If your DS is still under warranty then go to:
http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/manuals/warrantytext_eng.jsp

You can put in the serial number & check the warranty status.

If it is out of warranty then but a battery from somewhere like Amazon for cheap and replace it.

I have 05 kia rio. jump started dead battery but the cables were crossed and killed it instead. purchased new battery. car stuck in park. worked when screwdriver in override button but still won'


There is a large maxi-fuse between the battery and alternator. Its at least 100 amp or more. It may be in the cable at the battery, or in one of the fuse boxes.
You may also have damaged the key switch or the brake circuit.
You may have to get a book to get the wiring diagrams to check everything involved.

My TI-83 Plus has a black screen, and changing the contrast and the batteries does not fix the problem.


If you've dropped it recently, there's a chance the screen is messed up. Hitting the back of the calculator firmly may fix the problem, but otherwise there is little you can do to fix the problem other than taking it to somebody who can fix it for you, or buying a new one.

Bad Picture


When you say messed up do you mean the convergence is out? please explain a little more detail as to what you are seeing. Also when its messed up if you press the menu button on the remote does the menu look good?

Your problem is a bad main filter, a regulator IC ,and or a combination of a convergence problem along with a vertical IC going bad. This set is not something you should mess with unless your a trained tech. Please seek a pro to assist you with this repair. good Luck
