Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
I have a S2 IS which has been great up until yesterday when my wife took the memory card out to print some photos on a photo lab machine and now every card that we insert into the camera reads as "memory card error'. This is too coincidental surely? Could the machine have had a virus which has been transferred to the camera? If so, can I reinstall the firmware and where do I get it from?
I have had no problems with this camera to date but this is frustrating now!
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
Most likely the contacts inside the photo lab machine transferred oil / gunk / dirt / dust to your card, which has now coated / shorted the contacts inside the Camera ...
I believe this Camera takes an 'SD' type card, so you MIGHT be able to do something ... try using a bright light & magnifying glass to look down the slot ...
You might be able to blow out any dust / foreign object with compressed air (or **** it out with a straw on the end of your vacumn cleaner :-) ).. or you could also try using something (very) thin to clean the contacts ....
