Fuji just shipped my S2s back without repairing them because they ran out of sensors. Is there any use for an S2 with a bad sensor? Has anyone been able to get a trade-in credit or anything like that?

Doubt it. Its a shame that a $60-120 Sony built Fuji superCCD Sensor (Chinese sourced, production dated around recall so you dont know if the one you buy is any better than the one in the camera) will put this camera out of commission forever. I have a Kodak Z990 MAX and it is very simple inside behind the SK lens, just 1 PC board dominated by the sensor, thats it. I wondered if something like that could be adapted to a Nikon mount but the shutter is electronic on that camera. I believe it is an APS-C sized sensor.
