No image. The menue (etc.)

There is no image in my Canon PowerShot S2 IS camera. The menu (etc.) looks OK, but nothing through the lense appears on the screen or view finder. Everything else seems to function.

Have a Powershot S2 IS, and when turn camera on in record mode, there is no image appearing. No image appearing when looking thru view finder either. any ideas on issue?


this means there is a problem with your lens system. If Lens system seems ok then problem may be with the CCD/CMOS repairing which will be pretty costly and will need a expert hands to fix it.

Can I attach interchengable lenses with my canon powershot S2 IS ?


No. The S2 IS's lens is not designed to be removed. You can attach adapters in front of the lens, but you cannot remove the lens itself.

When trying to take pictures, looking through view finder or on back screen, it is blank. Am able to access menues and all though. Canon PowerShot S2 IS.


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.

No Image to Shoot


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