Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Developed photo's aren't turning out well

I'm using Canon PowerShot S2 IS. I have taken some nice pictures with it which I transfer on to my pc and review them with no problem. I then upload them to Walgreens (online) for developing and when I pick them up I notice the pictures have been cropped somewhere along the way and the shot is off, many times with the tops of people's head cut off. First I thought they were problems caused by Walgreens but Walmart has turned up the same thing. When I go back to check the pictures on my pc, I see no problem and no cropping of the photo's being sent out. Can someone please tell me what I may be doing wrong?

I think it's the photo service. Check and see if there's a cropping option. I use shutterfly.com and if the top of a head is cut off in the preview, I just pick the crop option and change it. The service tries to crop the pictures accurately but sometimes you have to go in and force it to crop the way you want to. I'm sure Walgreens and Walmart's services will both have similar features.

"Canon powershot s2 is" not showing live picture


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. 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, 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 the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Black screen for Shooting Canon S3 IS


I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

I tried their solutions twice and it WORKS. My S3 is working fine now.

Canon powershot s2 IS suddenly does nothing when powered on


There appears to be an issue with the S2 IS after two years.  See the reviews on Canon's website: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=322&modelid=11368#ModelDetailAct

If yours is two years old then you are probably out-of-luck.  It would probably cost more to repair than to simply replace.

You can at least save your photos by removing the memory card and reading the files using a memory card reader on a PC or MAC.

My Canon Power Shot S2 1S will not take pictures because the lens will not go back in or out. The screen is black unless I review recent pictures


Do you get an E18 error? If so, then the lens motor is bad, or you have contamination in the gears (sand, dirt, etc), or mechanical failure from dropping the camera. This will require repair by Canon or other camera repair services.

Black pictures when using flash


The black images with flash mean that the Iris mechanism in the lens is not working properly, and that needs a professional camera repair service.
