Your camera has the know issue of Stuck shutter, whichhappens after some time (weeks or months) thata camera is notused.

Unfortunately the repair of it requires a complete disassembly of the camera, including the lens, fix it, and then put back together everything.

Definitely requires th skills, tools and experience to do it, so it's recommended that a professional camera repair center is performing this type of repair.

If you look for a reliable and low cost repair service for it, you can look in ebay for such repair services.

Example, look for seller ID Great_items_2004 or with the keywords "Shutter black S2".

Best regards,

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. 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, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To 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:

I own a canon Power Shot SD110, and no longer have the manual. I want know how to set the mega pix to have highest resolution possible. Can you tell me how to do this?


To get the best resolution, you need to set it to Large, Superfine. When you look at the LCD, in the lower left corner you should see an "L", and right above it a quarter circle with an "S" in it. If it shows anything else, press the Func button, use the down arrow until you reach the compression or resolution, then use the left/right arrow to select what you want. Press the Function button again to save the setting.

You can view/download a manual for your camera here.

There is a temporary fix that works sometimes but eventually it will stop working alltogether. If canon can't help, might try this:
