I've had my camera for 3-4 years and it has just started taking really blurry pictures. There are no warnings on the screen and it doesn't say I need a new battery. Was wondering if somebody knows what's wrong.

I'm out of practice because my camera suddenly stopped working 6 months ago, but I don't recall having a problem with blurry pictures when I used the zoom. Sometimes, it takes a few seconds for a pic to come into clear focus. I think the trick is to just keep working with it.
Sorry to say this sounds like a stuck open shutter mechanism. Put the camera in any mode other than auto and make certain that you turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself in the following step). Next look down the center of the lens barrel and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker (wonder where that website got that name?) in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen then it's likely stuck.
Some people have had success in unsticking Canon S2 IS shutters with the following procedures. It may or may not work for you:
Then it sounds like there may be an error with your CCD (what comverts the light going into your camera into a digital picture, like digital film). even if your warranty is expired canon may still repair this for free. Contact canon at 1-800-OK-CANON and explain to them the problem and that you think the CCD may be defective.
error code e18 means that the focus motor gears a jammed, dirt or grain of sand in them.
you can try to fix it by gently banging the camera on somthing soft, their are also instructions on web on how to disasemble and fix this fault.
BUT unless you have some skills, the right tools and conditions i would not attempt it. leave it to the experts
