Sounds like your imaging sensor has failed and is not recording blue or green tones. Take your camera to a good camera store or send it to Canon for a service estimate.

Search for "converting avi to DVD format" in Google, you will find a number of software that will do this for you (some are free). Here's one that is at the top of the search list for you to try out ...

Having received no response in over a month, I assume this is no longer a problem.

Normal 0 BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH – FIXED AT LAST - After doing several hours of research on the internet, I have been able to eliminate the problem on my Powershot S2 IS. I started with the “fix” as suggested by guidofoc in a post on the “flickr” site. Thanks guidofoc! His procedure did fix the problem for me but it only lasted a day. The next day, back to the same old black screen. For the next few days/weeks, when I wanted to use my camera, I did the same procedure and it would come back to life but would be black again the next time I powered up the camera or a day later.
Back to internet research! On the “Fixya” site, I found a picture of the camera shutter and diaphragm blades. This picture was posted by “andyhutton” who was also having the same “black screen” problem. He had disassembled his camera and found what appeared to be an oil exuding on the shutter diaphragm blades. He disassembled the camera, cleaned it thoroughly, and reassembled it. This fixed his camera. Other information I found indicated that what appeared to be oil was a little “stiffer” than oil, almost hard. It was thought that this was happening after leaving in a hot car other high temperature environment.
All this made sense to me but I didn’t relish the thought of tearing the camera apart and reassembling it. This procedure reportedly took about 6-8 hours. And this was by a person who considered himself, to have a reasonable amount of mechanical ability. I definitely DON’T RECOMMEND this approach unless you have tried all else and are ready to junk your camera. Using this information I theorized that if I used the temporary fix procedure and then repeatedly activated the shutter, perhaps the “wiping action” may wear down the frictional areas and free up the shutter blades to move more freely. I tried it. Voila! It has worked now for the last 6-8 weeks without a failure. Here is my final procedure:

Set the camera in Tv mode, (delayed shutter mode) set the shutter at 15 sec, click to take a picture and during that 15 secs (like, after 7 seconds) open the battery, compartment which cuts contact with the battery circuit. Close the battery cover. At this point the camera works fine for me but only temporarily as noted above. Sometimes however, this procedure had to be performed more than once. Here is the key to the permanent fix. While the camera is working via the temporary fix, take many, many pictures. Hundreds! I probably snapped 400-600 pics. The idea is to wear down the little patches of hardened oil on the shutter blades. For the next three of days I took hundreds of pics each day. Basically, I just aimed the camera at the wall or whatever and snapped off several hundred pics.

Now that I seem to have my camera working permanently, my plan is to NOT leave my camera in a high temperature environment, and to try to use it regularly. Maybe, not unlike many other things, if it gets no regular use, it may start to deteriorate.

No guarantees but I do hope this helps someone.

You need the wireless adapter for this, you cannot do this with the camera.

Same as any camera - uncover lens, point camera at subject, press shutter button. Simples.

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this camera photo recovery software
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Possible that the mic within the camera is bad or there is obstruction to the mic. Please check and clean any dirt , place the camera and shoot without holding to confirm if the sound is better or not.

Check your settings in the menus. If you've muted the camera to remove the other sounds, it will mute the video soundtrack as well.

On the 5D error code 30 appears to be shutter related and general advice is to get a professional repair or send it back to Canon.
