Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera
I have a Canon Powershot S400 Digital Elph camera. When I do a preview in the LCD screen, everything looks fine. After I take the picture in either automatic or manual modes, indoors or outdoors, after the picture is taken it shows up on the memory card (in the camera and outside of the camera) as very over-exposed with fine lines through the entire picture. This just all of the sudden started occurring. Pictures I took previously are fine on the memory card. The camera is slightly over five years old.
The only thing I've tried to fix it is remove and recharge the battery.
For both of you, 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:
