Factory reset Cannon PowerShot S2 IS

Controls locked up on Cannon PowerShipt S2. How do I do a factory reset on this camera. All buttons are dormant including MENU.

Can turn on and view images (although constant slide show mode locked on at high speed) and can take pictures but can't use buttons on back of camera or zoom.

I found this solution elsewhere, so I can't take credit for it. It seems a small piece of dirt gets stuck between the camera case and the button to take the picture. The button doesn't release fully, and it acts like the shutter button is pressed halfway down. Try running your finger over the top of the button in a circle to release it.

I just dropped my Canon SD750 and now it won't turn on. Is there a reset button?....or am I out of luck?


I had a Cannon EasyShare CX7000 many years ago, had the same problem exactly, Canon cameras are not that durable when it comes to dropping it, but I have a Cannon Powershot SD1000 and I have dropped it numerous times and it still functions like it's new. three words REPLACE YOUR CAMERA. oh, and there is no reset button, you are out of luck

Cannon PowerShot S2 IS lens is stuck


I have the exact same problem, took it completely apart removed the zoom motor, physically turned the zoom gear and retracted the lens, reinstalled the motor, put it all back together, and found that I had the same problem and the lens wouldn't move out, so im pretty certain that the motor is bad, as the lens moves smoothly once the motor is not attached to it... looking for a replacement motor as i type...
