Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
Hello Anubis, This may be happening from 2 reasons. First and most probable you have a corrupted firmware (the camera's basic software and/or operating system). This happens pretty often with cameras and sometimes it can happen just out of nowhere, just like that, for no aparent reason. In this case you will need to have the camera's firmware rewritten at a service center. It isn't an expensive repair and it's most safer then trying to write the firmware yourself. They have the original firmware versions, without bugs and such things. Another posible reason is a hardware failure somewhere between the lcd controller (a chip that renders everything you see on the screen) and the camera's processor. Yet again, this requires service intervention, because camera's are delicate equipments, and must be dissasembled with special tools and care. However if this is the case, a service center will most likely ask you if you want to buy a whole mainboard for the camera. This can get pretty expensive. Before going to a service center try to hard-reset the camera, sometimes it can be that simple. If you need more informations on this or have another question please reply and I will came back to assist. Good luck.
