The pictures have horizontal lines through them. The veiw screen is fine. When you review or save them to the computer they show up whiter and with lines. Thanks ahead for any help.

If this doesn't apear on the print pictures taken directly from the SD card. It has something to do with the settings for the picture transferre on your computer.
Try and reset/adjust the settings within the transferre programe. I cannot tell you the eact steps for that since it will depend on the programe you're using. But it can usually be done right before transferring pics to the computer.

If helpful pls. recommend/rate me and or give me a review. TXS

When taking pics they end up pinky/purple with horizontal lines

It's a loose connection between the CCD and motherboard - a very common problem with these cameras. Unless you have experience in camera repairs, you should give it to a local repair shop - don't let them say you it's a motherboard problem or something like that, it's 99% just a loose connection. I have repaired hundreds of these. I work in a Kodak service center.

Horizontal lines and bad exposure in pics

Hi there,

Were you able to solve your camera? I got my Camera fixed for FREE! I was able to do macro shots again. Trust me and go to canon. What I did is to print this advisory from canon itself. And show it to them.

Horizontal lines and blurred pics.---- when seen in scren pics are clear but as soon as u click it either becomes blurred or shows horizontal lines. sometimes i find blank. i wud like to know the reason...

It's a lens shutter problem. There are usually two causes - a broken shutter cable (it moves inside the lens as you zoom - as the lens move) or stuck shutter blades - if wet or something adhesive got in. If the shutter doesn't work, the camera cannot control the amount of light taken, so the pictures if taken in normal or bright conditions are very bright and have horizontal lines. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. Both problems are considered hard to repair and could end up with changing of the shutter or lens. It should be an expensive repair so I would just get another camera.

Sorry for the bad news, but I hope it will help you!

Horizontal lines and blurred pics distorted colors, sometimes no pic at all.

I assume that you have ruled out a bad LCD screen.
The only time I have seen horizontal lines in the pictures, it was a prelude to the CCD sensor failing. Sounds like a CCD sensor problem.If the CCD sensor is causing the problem, it will get worse soon.Usually the next thing to happen is that the colors will shift toward pink.
I suggest you phone Canon support and tell them the problem and that you suspect the CCD.Ask for a repair quote for a CCD replacement.If the product is under warranty Canon will repair it free of cost and also it will take care of the shipping fee.

Horizontal lines in pictures

hi If u find that the lines are vertical that is often a result of taking pictures of very bright subjects. This is  called vertical streaking. If the lines are horizontal lines there is probably something wrong with your sensor and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician , and they will send it out to have it looked at. hope this helps!
thank u rate me!!!
