Question about Canon PowerShot S60 Digital Camera

LCD screen black with flashing color lines

My camera was working fine until I returned from a trip. When I open the camera and get ready to take a picture the LCD screen is black with a purple bar across the top. It doesn't show an image. When I take a picture, it flashes and snaps fine but doesn't show an image. Did something happen to it when I went through security at the airport? Is there any hope for it? I tried everything in the manual and don't find any solutions. thanks for any insight you can give me. PHH

After reading comments on Fixya about similar problems, I decided it might be a defect in the CCD image sensor so I contacted Canon and they confirmed that it was and they said they would fix the camera without a fee. Thanks for your help.

I decided to check Canon's website after I saw some responses on your site with similar problems and it appeared that the CCD image sensor was defective so I called Canon tech service this morning and they knew immediately when I described it to them that it was the defective CCD image sensor so they are sending me a mailing label to mail the camera to them to be fixed without a fee. Thanks to the help I got on your website it directed me to investigate that.

LCD Screen


Replace the Ribbon Wire between the Mini DV unit and the lcd screen. Samsung wanted $136 to repair same issue for me. Screen started with colored lines eventually going to white lines and finally screen went completely black and stayed black. I replaced the Ribbon Wire after purchasing a copy of the systems schematics and repair manuel online. With total cost of everything i bought to make this repair I saved a little over $115 from what Samsung wanted for the same repair.

Black pictures with blue lines running horrizontally through them


If you are able to see the picture in the LCD in black color and if there are no damages to the LCD -the LCD is fine. There is a back light panel attached behind the LCD which may be defective.Check for the loose connections. If you need spare parts contact me.
