Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Black screen on my powershot S2 IS

I have tried the solutions, works until it is shut off and turned back on. Have to go through the process all over. I should not have to go through these steps each time I want to take pictures. I didn't pay $350 for a camera that would only work 1.5 years with less than 15 hours of use. The camera needs to be replaced at Canon's expense.

Shutter stuck, screen is black. I changed batteries, no help. tried manual shutter, pulling the batteries, and it worked until I shut it off, then next time, black screen again.


Pamela, try the battery trick again (here it is, along with other's similar experience and tips). But after you get it working, take lots of pictures before putting it away again (take a couple hundred of nothing in particular. Just erase them later. After all it's a digital). You want to really work the shutter mechanism to get out any grit or material that might be in there causing it to stick.

Black screen for Shooting Canon S3 IS


I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

CANON POWERSHOT S2 IS 5 MEGA PIXELS


I bought mine 2 1/2 yrs ago too. Found this solution on this site and tried it. It worked perfectly.
Turn to TV mode, set the exposure to 15 seconds by pushing the little "arrow dial" until you have 15"
Push the button to take the picture.
Wait 7 seconds from when you push the button, then turn over and open the battery door while it is "taking the picture."
Close the battery door and turn back on. 
I did this three times and the last time, it worked and the iris became unstuck.
Then I took a million pictures to get the iris moving.
Good luck!
