Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
Actually, the article concerning simple fixes for a stuck shutter is located here:
And the Canon S series cameras are notorious for this problem. 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 the link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

There may be a chance that the shutter is stuck closed, and you might try some suggestions I ran across on a web blog. The blog deals with error messages and lens assembly problems, so it's worth trying:
Hope this helps.
