Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
Suddenly and without incident the lens will not retract and the screen has no image; powering on causes a motor to work and click but the lens can't move. It's stuck in the extended position. Batteries are okay. There has been no damage. It's a mystery to me.
Thank you for any suggestions,
This error is caused by a faulty lens motor, contaminated transmission, or mechanical damage from dropping. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix for this and it requires service from Canon or other repair facility.
