Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Red pictures with lines

I've had my camera for 3 years and it recently started having an intermittent problem. The pictures display on the LCD with a red tint with lines running thru it. They also download the same way. It does not seem to matter which mode they are taken in and it does not happen 100% of the time. I have changed all settings back to the default and this did not resolve the issue. I looked at the solution regarding the "moire effect", but it does not seem to matter what my subject is - this just keeps happening.

    Unfortunately, I suspected that it was time to replace the camera; but thanks for confirming it.

No image, Just red and blue vertical line on display.

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

Getting red vertical line on LCD panel

Do the pictures have the same line when viewing them on a PC or other device? If so, great chance your camera sensor or the connection to is is dammaged. If you only see it on the display, the display is dammaged, but you still can us the camera to shoot pictures.

I have had my camera for not even a year and it recently started having this problem. Whenever I take a picture, the object will look fine in the display, but when I take the picture it gets horizontal...

If I understand you correctly, you're saying that the LCD display shows a normal picture when you are composing your shot, but that when you actually snap the shutter to record the shot, the resulting image has nasty lines across it?

That would indicate that the lens is fine, but that the image sensor itself or associated electronics have gone bad. If this is out of warranty, then you're likely out of luck.

Red line on the display and shows up on photos

if this red line is still on the picture when you open in the computer, I`m a fried you will need a new CCD. If the pictures are ok in the computer is probable some wire that connect the LCD are interrupted , or the LCD have some dead pixels.

LCD Displaying Red instead of Black, Vertical Lines in Display

I had a similar problem where the screen went to a pink shade periodically. Sony sent me a memory stick, with download instructions, that fit into one of the back ports. The problem has gone away. It was a software correction.

Fuji f700

I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!
