Black screen just get a blank picture

I had the same problem and believe the shutter is stuck. 1) Put the camera in Tv or M mode 2) leave the view screen closed 3) snap a picture - 4) QUICKLY open the battery cover 5) turn the camera back on You may have to do this up to 10 times. It's a pain, but it worked for me.

Same problem with Canon S2IS - Image is black, getto fix no longe

I had the same problem here in America and had a run around from Canon, but they finally took my S2 IS in for a checkup and found the problem so many S1 IS and S2 IS had with the symptoms you have. It was the shutter sticking. Mine was only a few months out of warranty and they did a free one time courtesy repair they say. Many in other countries have to pay to get it repaired. Canon should have recalled it as they did on the S1 IS. They did not! The way to know it is a sticking shutter is to look down the lens with something to magnify the opening and you will see the shutter stuck closed and nothing happens except the shutter sound. The display shows a blank picture taken. All menus worked fine. There is a forum about this with hundreds of Canon owners frustrated about it.

Black screen

Sounds like you have a bad CCD. You can try contacting Canon to check out your options on how to get this repaired. Unfortunately the S2IS is not on their CCD recall list of cameras.
