Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Wierd Images in Viewfinder and Photos

Camera has worked fine for 2 years and even recently. Now the images are "streaking" and semi-blurry. Picture throwing a cup of paint on a wall...the paint will run down. This is how my images look in the viewfinder: it seems to run down as if paint flowing down the wall. Camera was not dropped, but one thing I recall was I turned it on and the lens started to protrude, something blocked it's path so it couldn't fully extend. I heard the camera beep 3 times...I corrected the obstruction and the lens fully extended, but then immediately the aforementioned issue cropped up. Any ideas??

Sounds like ccd sensor faulty.the only thing you can try as you say fault happened when lens got jammed is to reset camera by removing batteries for a few secs and reinserting,if this does not work will have to go to service.,

Canon s200 digital elph will take the pic but it is all blurry, was working fine previously


Hey ednjoey2007,
The most common cause of blurry images is the camera moved during exposure so make sure to hold the camera as steady as possible. Another common cause of blurry images is caused by not holding the shutter button halfway down to achieve focus, and then press the button all the way down to take the picture. Another cause of blurry images on this camera is the AF assist beam is either blocked or set to off, and lastly if your subject is too close to the camera (closer than 1.9ft) your image will come out blurred. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Green & Purple blurry images


In all these cases it appears the CCD (image recording circuit) has absorbed tiny amounts of moisture. These circuits are known to have been manufactured improperly. The only solution is replacement of major circuitry.
