Canon S2 IS dot on picture issue

I have a Canon S2IS, I have a dot on every photo/Movie I take, it looks like some water maybe on the sensor, its not on the lens. I think that its somewhere internal to the Camera. Is this something I can clean and fix myself? Or do I need to send it into Canon?

Send it to Canon is a better choice. Professional cleaning costs just a little more than buying all the cleaning solution and cleaning swabs (which you will don't need all of it, because you are just cleaning it once, and the solution will just dry out eventually).

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.

Same problem with Canon S2IS - Image is black, getto fix no longe


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.

Is there a free download to make the Powershot S2is Vista compatible?


Sorry, Canon did not upload the drivers for the Vista OS for many of its cameras. But no matter, please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Canon Powershot S2IS no image in viewfinder


Your camera has the know issue of Stuck shutter, whichhappens after some time (weeks or months) thata camera is notused.

Unfortunately the repair of it requires a complete disassembly of the camera, including the lens, fix it, and then put back together everything.

Definitely requires th skills, tools and experience to do it, so it's recommended that a professional camera repair center is performing this type of repair.

If you look for a reliable and low cost repair service for it, you can look in ebay for such repair services.

Example, look for seller ID Great_items_2004 or with the keywords "Shutter black S2".

Best regards,
