Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

View window is black

When I turn on my camera, the view screen is black. I have a power shot S2 IS 5.0 mega pixels. It started doing this about a month ago. I thought at first it was because my batteries were dying, new charge batteries put in and it still does it. I have tried disposable batteries also.

There is a temporary fix that works sometimes but eventually it will stop working alltogether. If canon can't help, might try this:

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. 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, 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:

Skip using the camera for downloading and use a card reader instead. A lot of troubles will be eliminated.
A card reader is not expensive.
A card reader can be found in most electronic stores or on a site such as Ebay.

Try to right click on the image files while they are read on the memory card or on the camera hard-wired to your computer. Click on copy then click on your desktop of your computer to paste them. They may just be creating short-cuts rather than placing the file onto your computer.
