BLACK SCREEN - Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera


Answers :

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras, but especially the S2 IS. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
\015\012To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
Hi,


The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to Canon service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost.
