Question about Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera
It sounds like you have a defective CCD sorry to say, there's nothing you can do to fix the problem without replacing the CCD.
You can try resetting everything via the setup menu, but I do not believe that will help.
Instead of sending it in to Canon for a complete new lens for $200, you should try just replacing the CCD first and see if that solves the problem. Why replace more parts than are needed? You can check eBay for a defective camera and pull the CCD out and put it in yours, or you can pay somebody to do it for you.
Please check around and you will see, you won't find anybody who will fix the camera for less than $150+, though I do know one camera repair business that will do it for much less... because I own it.
If you need help finding an affordable repair service please let me know.
Good luck from: Darntoothysam com
