Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera ?

Cannon powerShot S2

\015 When I turn my camera on it says to replace batteries, even when putting new batteries in the camera. \302\240What should I do?\015\012\015

Answers :

Unfortunately this issue is most commonly caused by an electrical failure with the camera's power unit. Sometimes a hard reset will work, though I'm not sure if permanently.
\015\012
\015\012Usually the solution is to call Canon's tech support and have the unit sent in for service. To give the reset a try however turn your camera on and immediately press and hold the Menu button for approximately 7 or 8 seconds (until you get a Reset Camera message). If you can get this far, do the reset and then power down the camera.
\015\012
\015\012Then remove the memory card, the batteries and the date/time battery unit (a small rectangular door located inside the main battery well). Once all batteries are removed, turn the camera's power switch into the on position. Wait two minutes then press the power button as if turning it off. Then replace all batteries and the memory card.
\015\012
\015\012Turn the camera back on and immediately set the time and date.
\015\012Turn the camera off and on a few times and take a few shots if possible. This works in about 25% of the time. If it doesn't and you have confirmed that the battery itselef is good (by placing it in another unit typically) then the camera will typically have to be sent in for a service repair.

\015\012Hope this helps.

S20is definitive answer to battery problem
\012If you look closely, ONE of the strapping terminals on the battery compartment door is made of three separate parts. These tarnish with age and go high resistance. If you are VERY good with a soldering iron you can scrape the nickel coat and solder the three parts together without melting the plastic. The other contact is a single piece and is no problem. This was deliberately designed by Canon which is why they never offered a fix. My camera has been perfect for weeks now, unfortunately its technology is a bit dated.
