A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras, but especially so for the S2 IS. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). 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 this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

My sx10is will not turn on the LCD screen when taking pictures, it will when reviewing them. I think I did something to screw this up, help appreciated>


Close the LCD. Turn the camera off and then on. Look thorough the view finder and press the disp button to cycle through menus until it comes back to picture view. Open the LCD. If it doesn't show picture view, Press the disp button next to the menu button.

It is possible that your Imager/ the CCD is not working or defective. This might need closer look to confirm and I wish it will be betterr to have this checked at the Canon service centre, take and estimate before you think of a repair. If you have not used the camera for a long time keep it ON for some hours and try, If you have exposed the camera to High intensity light/ direct sunlight, it ispossible to damage the device. So check this out. Good day

Zoom pictures lower than what see in viewfinder


That's normal...it's called parallax error because the view finder is not in the same plane as the lens. Why don't you use the LCD screen to compose your shots?

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder,...


I had a A70 that would still take pictures, but the screen did not show a picture. I did some research and found that this is somewhat a common problems with some of the Canon Powershots to include the A70 where the LCD screens expire. I believe that if the camera gets too hot, such as being left in a vehicle the LCD seperates. I sent my camera to Canon and they fixed it for free. It took about 4-6 weeks to receive my camera back, and now it works perfectly. They did a great job on communicating with me, and fixing the issue. I think that alone is worth buying a Canon. The link below should help you.

Query Regarding No Display on LCD (view finder) in Canon Digital IXUS 750


With the camera on, have you tried pressing the DISP button once? It's the lower left button on the back of the camera. It manually turns the display on or off as desired to save batteries (you can then aim through the optical viewfinder).

Common fault with these models and is caused by faulty CCD sensor. Canon will probably repair free of charge so send it in . As I said very common with this model.
