Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Where to get parts?

I made the mistake of buying a 'referbished' camera off ebay from completephotousa.com. Well it did come with a year warrenty but I was not aware I needed to send anything in. So of course, a few months later now I have problems. I believe its my CCD sensor or whatever you call it. I cant not see an image or scene when I am trying to take a picture. THe LCD works because I can view older pics off a memory card and the graphics and menus work. So I guess what i am asking is where I can get the part or parts I need. I cant find anything anywhere online. But I am assuming it would be cheaper if some how some way I can just order and replace the part myself. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

From a similar solved problem: I have read of this problem (doing research before buying a Canon S2). Apparently it is a bad sensor and Canon will fix it for free if it's still under warranty (otherwise it will cost $119.00). and I have the same problem. Just got off the phone with Canon and have to send the camera to them. Repair takes ~2wks. Call them @1-800-828-4040 and follow the menus. Canon's site also addresses this for the S1 and others (but not the S2). Says heat and high humity can cause a connection to the sensor to come undone. Hope this helps.

Fujifilm j38 lens is stuck in the camera

You forgot to pull out after the lens was pushed in on the side. That mistake makes it very expensive to fix. If you buy the same parts camera with a bad lcd on ebay. You can have your good lcd replaced on the ebay parts camera. Replacing lcd is an easier job.

Contact Canon. They answer such questions all the time, If the 2nd year warrenty came from some store like Best Buy, contact them. They won't rip you off. They want you back for your next camera.

Black-n-purple viewing screen my fuji s700 (s7000) camera

Sounds like a bad LCD as I had a similar experience with a different brand. The part itself is probably not very cheap... but if you have $120 you could get the same camera, referbished.
