    My wife has a simular problem with her A60 only the whole screen is covered with blurred lines and the picture cannot be made out at all.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

This is a definate problem with the viewer. Try replacing the batteries first, otherwise ... you will want to contact Canon technical support and seek repairs by calling the number found on your limited warranty card.

Please mark as FixYa!

    Thanks for visiting and posting your problem.



    Would you reconsider increasing the rating because a Nice Try is more for solutions that did NOT solve your problem and was off the mark. I'm not sure that was the case here because it's my opinion that the camera problem cannot be fixed without service. So this would be a FixYa. I hope you reconsider the rating and mark it higher.



    To be certain, contact the camera company, see what they say and then rate accordingly. Our expert help here is free and we can use any kudos we can get. Especially if it helped you and was accurate. =) Thanks.
