Canon Power Shot S21s screen is black

I am having the same problem mentioned by the others about a black screen and not being able to take any pictures. I have a 256 card in it. You can see the camera settings but no picture. I did not see anyone come up with a solution yet. Help! Please!

Press the and hold the display button while placing the camera lens down on a table so that the lens is covered allowing no light to enter then lift it back up. This seemed to reset the light balance.

Thank you for the Cannon Customer Service contact info..

The Cannon C.S. Rep. was very friendly and helpful. I will be sending my Cannon A75 to the authorized service center in IL.. Hopefully, Cannon will repair my camera @ no charge (probably a bad CCD Sensor) and return it to me quickly????

Thanks again,

Bikerdoug

Hey birdstrike,
According to the manufacturer there are two options. You can try pressing the display (DISP.) button, and if that doesn't work you are probably going to have to get it serviced by an authorized service center. There is a know problem with the CCD sensor on this camera and other model cameras that causes a malfunction when the camera is exposed to heat or humidity. Canon is covering this repair, and I have included a link below to the instructions on what to do.

Your camera will need a lens. Contact Canon regarding repairs (it may be covered due to a CCD Imager fault)

When i insert 4gb memory card into canon power shot s21s, camera is disabled. cannot take pictures


Your new 4GB memory card is the problem. The card would likely be an SDHC card (look on its front cover). Your A540 camera was designed well before the SDHC format came out, and your camera will not recognize it. Your camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less). Here's some from Amazon.

Canon Power Shot S21s screen is black


This is a common problem in older Canon S2 IS cameras, especially ones that have not been regularly used. What happens is that the lens iris gets stuck at a small aperture. Most often you can get function back. Here's how:

Turn the camera on in shooting mode.

Turn the mode selector to shutter priority ("Tv").

Use the four-way button on the back to set the shutter speed to 15 seconds. That's right, 15 seconds.

Press the shutter release. Count to seven, then pop open the battery compartment.

Wait several seconds, then close the battery compartment.

You may need to repeat the above sequence several times to unstick the iris. If that does not accomplish it, you will likely have to send the camera in for repair.

Once you have it working again, you should use the camera regularly to keep it from sticking again.

Black screen


Sounds like you have a bad CCD. You can try contacting Canon to check out your options on how to get this repaired. Unfortunately the S2IS is not on their CCD recall list of cameras.
