Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera ?


Answers :

The image is all white or has lines through it.Definitely sounds like a repair issue, and has been a previous problem\015\012with the camera in the past. There is a defect in the sensor of the\015\012camera, and happens quite frequently in this model. I would try and\015\012contact Canon about it, and see if they'll repair it for free. If not,\015\012its probably going to cost more than the camera is worth to repair it.\015\012Good luck, and if anything you can upgrade to the S5, a good camera\015\012without the sensor issue.
