Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera ?

Where to get parts?


\015 I made the mistake of buying a 'referbished' camera off ebay from completephotousa.com. Well it did come with a year warrenty but I was not aware I needed to send anything in. So of course, a few months later now I have problems. I believe its my CCD sensor or whatever you call it. I cant not see an image or scene when I am trying to take a picture. THe LCD works because I can view older pics off a memory card and the graphics and menus work. \015\012So I guess what i am asking is where I can get the part or parts I need. I cant find anything anywhere online. But I am assuming it would be cheaper if some how some way I can just order and replace the part myself. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks\015

From a similar solved problem:\015\012\015\012I have read of this problem (doing research before buying a Canon S2). Apparently it is a bad sensor and Canon will fix it for free if it's still under warranty (otherwise it will cost $119.00).\015\012\015\012and\015\012\015\012I have the same problem. Just got off the phone with Canon and have to send the camera to them. Repair takes ~2wks. Call them @1-800-828-4040 and follow the menus.\015\012\015\012Canon's site also addresses this for the S1 and others (but not the S2). Says heat and high humity can cause a connection to the sensor to come undone.\015\012\015\012Hope this helps.

I have a Moultrie D-40 with problems. It has a bad display. It also will power up, but power off almost immediately. I assume that is a main board problem. Is there a schmatic available? Can one order the parts from Moultrie? Any idea of prices? If not, is there anywhere else one can get parts? I assume someone makes the parts for them. I'm wondering if there is a part number on the circuit boards. I would think the display would be a common item. I already swapped it out so know it's bad. OR, i

The part that controls the aperture is stuck. Basically, when I look in the lens, the black part is still closed, and at first it stayed open too long. Now it is just stuck closed. I'm now in the UK, and it of course broke 1 day after the warranty ran out, so it's a no go to get fixed under warranty apparently. Now, I took it into a repair shop, and they said they see this happen a lot with digital cameras, and the more pictures you take the quicker the part will wear out. They're going to give

I have a Sony cybershot DCS-W5. Recently when I have taken photos some of them look as if parts of the shot are double exposed with previous photos or have parts of the same picture mixed up.
