Transferring pictures to computer is quite simple, and all you have to do is to use a pen drive or connect your mobile phone to your system via an USB cable.I think transferring pictures is nowadays a very simple task, which is even done by small kids.

Normal 0 BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH – FIXED AT LAST - After doing several hours of research on the internet, I have been able to eliminate the problem on my Powershot S2 IS. I started with the “fix” as suggested by guidofoc in a post on the “flickr” site. Thanks guidofoc! His procedure did fix the problem for me but it only lasted a day. The next day, back to the same old black screen. For the next few days/weeks, when I wanted to use my camera, I did the same procedure and it would come back to life but would be black again the next time I powered up the camera or a day later.
Back to internet research! On the “Fixya” site, I found a picture of the camera shutter and diaphragm blades. This picture was posted by “andyhutton” who was also having the same “black screen” problem. He had disassembled his camera and found what appeared to be an oil exuding on the shutter diaphragm blades. He disassembled the camera, cleaned it thoroughly, and reassembled it. This fixed his camera. Other information I found indicated that what appeared to be oil was a little “stiffer” than oil, almost hard. It was thought that this was happening after leaving in a hot car other high temperature environment.
All this made sense to me but I didn’t relish the thought of tearing the camera apart and reassembling it. This procedure reportedly took about 6-8 hours. And this was by a person who considered himself, to have a reasonable amount of mechanical ability. I definitely DON’T RECOMMEND this approach unless you have tried all else and are ready to junk your camera. Using this information I theorized that if I used the temporary fix procedure and then repeatedly activated the shutter, perhaps the “wiping action” may wear down the frictional areas and free up the shutter blades to move more freely. I tried it. Voila! It has worked now for the last 6-8 weeks without a failure. Here is my final procedure:

Set the camera in Tv mode, (delayed shutter mode) set the shutter at 15 sec, click to take a picture and during that 15 secs (like, after 7 seconds) open the battery, compartment which cuts contact with the battery circuit. Close the battery cover. At this point the camera works fine for me but only temporarily as noted above. Sometimes however, this procedure had to be performed more than once. Here is the key to the permanent fix. While the camera is working via the temporary fix, take many, many pictures. Hundreds! I probably snapped 400-600 pics. The idea is to wear down the little patches of hardened oil on the shutter blades. For the next three of days I took hundreds of pics each day. Basically, I just aimed the camera at the wall or whatever and snapped off several hundred pics.

Now that I seem to have my camera working permanently, my plan is to NOT leave my camera in a high temperature environment, and to try to use it regularly. Maybe, not unlike many other things, if it gets no regular use, it may start to deteriorate.

No guarantees but I do hope this helps someone.

Sounds like a recent Windows update has altered settings. Reload the software and drivers for the G6.

there might be two issues here (1) your phone 's operating software is corrupted with virus or viruses if there are some unusual applications which are running and difficult to uninstall try to root your phone and uninstall them you can use king root to do this , (2) your phone 's hardware connection from the camera to the motherboard is disturbed try to open the phone and clean it, your can also look for dry joins , if you have a hot air station you can blow the motherboard ,take not of the temperature. try to view photos from another memory card

I have the same problem with my Canon S21S, and I was blown-off by Canon "Support" a long time ago. They won't fix them even though it is the same problem as with the S11S because they're too cheap to spend the money.
So my solution is simple: DON'T BUY ANYTHING MADE BY CANON! EVER!

This is a delicate operation but you can try this: tap the camera lens up on a towel over a hard surface (counter top or floor) while you expect the lens to retract as in turning off. It may be enough jarring force to get cams back in the helix that moved the lens. Hit it hard and flat. IF that doesnt work, try tapping the lens down while it tries to retract. I have heard that people get so frustrated with it that they slam the camera lens up on a desk and that fixes it!

At 5 yrs old, it probably isn't worth trying to repair. There are so many newer products on the market with improved functions. Missing important shots makes it worthwhile to find a unit that works.

CR2 files appear to be in the RAW format, so you will need software that can open them. Try Irfanview or Faststone (both free).

Do you have the user's manual? There should be a menu option to turn 'live-view' on and off. This option is to save battery power when not needed (if using the viewfinder only).
