Question about Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera
Recently, I found some problems in my Canon A85, 1. there are running lines with changing color on LCD display especially when viewing "dark" object. 2. the images taken are sometimes good, sometimes bad, e.g. a) purple sepia image or b) many horizontal lines distort the image. Anything I could do, please advise. My S410 just started doing this. A week before vacation! It appears that it is a similar issue, I emailed them about it. If you display images that existed on the card, they look fine. Anything new is a blurry image with ghosted vertical lines.
It appears the CCD image sensor is going bad. Both these cameras are specified in Canon's technical notice regarding this issue. If Canon determines that this is the problem (and almost certainly it is), they will repair your cameras at no cost, regardless of warranty status. If you're not in the US, contact your regional Canon service facility.
