Question about Canon PowerShot S60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Purple images with horizontal white lines

It started while I was out of the country. It started gradually with a purple images on the LCD; with time it added horizontal white lines. I thought my battery might be low so I charged my battery but the problem persisted. I tried all settings to no avail. The pictures appear blurry and purple with horizontal white lines. What seems to be the problem? I love this camerra. I have had it for few years.

    Same purple blur. It's like you just took a picture on very slow shutter time
    aiming for a purple something en slowly turned the camera to the left.
    You can't see anything through the live view and the same if you take a picture.
    Very nice... See if I can contact Canon.

Black with purple lines instead of image in viewing screen


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

Affected cameras with this problem include: A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S230, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a

This sure looks like a CCD image sensor failure. If so, you can't fix this yourself. If the camera is less than a year old, Canon will fix this for you under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.

Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and they will replace the CCD at no charge to you. This is a known issue and should be covered under extended warranty. Good luck my friend. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
