Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera ?

PowerShot S230 Digital Elf -flickering

\015 I have a PowerShot S230 Digital Elf that is about 6 years old and I love it. However, in the last 2 weeks, I have noticed that the screen is flickering and only about half of the pics are turning out - they are very blurry or very pink. I assume the ones that are turning out are the ones that I take at the exact moment that the screen is not flickering. I also have noticed that the ''battery low'' light comes on way too soon. So, what do you think is the problem? The battery, the compact flash card, or the camera itself is on it's way out?\015

Hi, I have a Canon PowerShot A75 digital camera. lately I have experienced problems when first switching it on. The screen flickers and is covered in coloured lines. Usually this goes after taking a few (useless!) photos but today they won't go at all. It is impossible to make out anything but flickering lines now. Any ideas? I love this camera and don't want it to die!!

I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is happenng to my Powershot - which uses ordinary AA-batteries. Both cameras still take very good pictures - but a retailer told me that this is what happens to digital cameras after a while. Do i really have to by a new one every 3.rd year - or have anyone any suggestions?


Rechargeable batteries lose performance when they get older. A three year lifespan is not unusual. Note that your camera does not use "normal" AA batteries. It should be using rechargeable NiMH or disposable lithium AA's only, although alkaline (e.g. ... Canon Digital Cameras
