I know these cameras very well and if this unit is displaying switch off and then on again only in camera mode then you definetly have a lens fault. if it has been dropped or knocked hard then a qualified technicain is going to have to have a look at it.

You can tell Sony and maybe they can fix it.

No image in viewfinder or on screen


I found this solution on a different page and it fixed my camera that was having the same problem.



In the case where you get a black image, the following may be of help:

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. (To do this you keep pressing the left direction on the four-way button until it goes from 1/1600 or whatever it might be all the way to 15")

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.




This sounds like a pretty ghetto solution but it worked for me and I know it has worked for others. So before you go wasting your time writing letters, give this a shot.

Stylus 600. When I turn camera on a blue screen comes up with a message [xD] Write Protect. What does this mean and how do I make it go away?


In order to remove the message of write protect you will need to format the xD memory card. The card has somehow become corrupted. To format the memory card - press Ok - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to Card Setup - right arrow to Format - Up arrow to Yes and then press Ok. This will permanently delete all images from the memory card and you will be able to start taking images again.

Error message 5e02


Turn on your camera, when the lense is opened, hold it till the blue screen appears, extend the lense to his maximum forcing it a little bit then when you turn off your camera, the noise won't be here. Turn on again your camera and hopes it works. I tried it on my camera, works well at the first try then again the error, i did it twice holding the lense when you turn it on, then it worked perfectly.
Hope it works for you.
P.S : my english isn't well but i hope it helps.

Please follow the procedure below: 1. While the message is displayed, press the center of the controller. 2. The LCD monitor and data panel will turn off . 3. Turn the Main Switch to OFF and remove the CompactFlash card from the camera. 4. If "No Card " message appears at next time the camera is activated in the recording mode, the camera and CompactFlash card are OK. 5. In case that "Card Error. OK" appears again, the CompactFlash card may be faulty. Use other card.
