I am unable to view through my LCD screen, in any way, it has multi colours on with lines coming from the right of the screen, radiating from a point on the edge, has my LCD screen expired ? if so is it worth replacing, it is approx 3 years old,any information would be gratefully received
Canon fixed mine free of charge last summer, but i fear the problem is
back again. they fixed a new sensor in the camera but i dont think to
colours are quite as nice in the photos taken with the new sensor.
you are havin a serious problem. your problem shows that there is no problem with its LCD screen itself but it is problem related with CCD sensor. Camera needs CCD replacement compulsaryly. So that no one can help you. It is advisable to go to Canon shop.
thank you and good luck...

Sounds like your LCD screen is broken. Did you drop the camera? You may be able to find a screen or a broken same model camera with a good screen on eBay. Changing it out, however is NOT for the faint of heart. You will need tiny tools to work on tiny parts with very small electrical connections, a steady hand and nerves of steel with a service manual at your fingertips so that you disassemble only what is needed in the correct order and don't do additional damage. Still want to try it? I recommend taking it to a reputable camera store and getting a quote to repair it. Weigh that cost against the cost of replacing the camera. In the meantime, switch over to the Electronic View Finder. Good luck. (FYI: I will undertake the repair of anything short of a nuclear device, but I will not try a digital camera of any kind.)
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
This sounds like a broken or cracked LCD screen. The backlite is working, thus you will get the white screen. The LCD could also be disconnected internally, or has other problems. But this is a direct problem with the LCD. A camera like this can usually take pictures, and you may be able to use it to set the menus by using the video cable to the TV or computer screen (some flat screens have video inputs).
I have the same issue, Although My camera is a samsung N46, It was working perfectly the night before, then my friend switched it on and it came up with a black backround and pink + purple vertical lines going through it.
The LCD itself may not have problems. If it ain't broken it most probably doesn't have a problem. Most likely the problems you have are given by a faulty connector between the LCD and the camera's mainboard. You should take the camera to a service center to have it checked. Tell them to make an estimate over the repair costs before they actually do something. In this way you will know what prices can you espect over the repair. I'll give about 60% chances that this is a minor defect involving that connector. In this case they will just need to reconnect it back firmly.
I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!
By rotating the display, users can use it to view their subject when taking low-angle, high-angle, and a wide range of other shots. When closed, the multi-swing display also ensures carefree portability by protecting both the lens and the LCD screen. The IR-500 is the first Olympus camera to feature a multi-swing display with 360° rotation capability. It is especially useful in Self Portrait Shooting. The multi-swing display's 360° rotation capability makes it easy to shoot self-portraits as well as other people and scenery. Users can view themselves on the LCD screen while shooting, and use the camera's Self Portrait mode to ensure optimum exposures.
