Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
I turned on my camera and the screen was black
Posted by Anonymous on
Did you accidentally press the DISP button on the back of your camera? This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. Try pressing this button one more time to see if it turns the screen back on.

You have most likely dropped the camera or banged it against something while the lens was out. This situation causes the brass pinion gear to shear teeth off the plastic ring gear on the Inner Lens Housing. It may also cause the guide pins to jump their track. If this is the case the repair bill usually exceeds the value of the camera and you are probably better off selling it for parts on eBay and getting a new higher resolution camera.

hi.if you are telling both viewfinder and lcd are blank or black the problem is in the shutter that you found inside of the lens are not open.sometimes the cuase of the is humidity or moist goin inside of the shutter thats why it will not work properly or stuck up.if you can open your camera and adjust the shuuter from lens unit its better .but if not its better you bring to service center and request for adjustment.
by the way try also to reset your camera to default setting maybe it will help you.

SOURCE: How do I use the
Once you select the color accent you should see the word " menu" in the bottom left hand corner of the screen with a down arrow next to a picture of a tube of paint. This means hold down the menu button for longer than a second, then you can adjust the color to be accented in your photos. Any time you see the word menu and the down arrow on the screen it means hold the menu button for longer than a second for more options/setting adjustments.
