Line on photo


Have you tried to pixel map the camera, It is a menu setting option probably in the wrench 2 tab of the camera menu. This will try to fix any information with the CCD chip inside the camera that controls image processing. If you run this function and it still shows the red line then it may be that you need to send the camera in for repair to have that CCD chip replaced.

Canon Powershot S330 Picture Brightness Help!!!


It sounds like the camera exposure system is out of whack and may need to be serviced. You may want to ensure that exposure compensation is set to 0. Check one of your overexposed images with the display in the 'Detailed Display' mode (two lines of information at the bottom of the LCD). If the second item on the top line is not ±0, the exposure compensation is not at its default value. To set, put the camera in M(anual) shooting mode. Press the Exposure/White Balance button until you see a scale along the bottom of the LCD from -2 to +2. Use the left or right button to set it at 0. If the value is already at 0, you will probably need service.

Blurry picture on Canon A80


I don't know what you told that technician, but try this. Download some of your pictures and videos to your computer. If the downloaded pictures look fine on your computer, then the technician was right, and it's probably just a loose LCD ribbon cable connection.

BUT if the downloaded pictures also look blurry with stripes, then it's probably a faulty 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. BUT MAKE SURE you tell the technician this time that it is showing up on your DOWNLOADED pictures. I recommend trying again, and hope for a more knowledgeable tech on the line this time. Please check the following two links for more info:

Red line


I think the problem is in matrix. Try pixel remaping. Usualy you need make remaping every 1 year. At the botom menu goto "Pixel Remaping" and press.

Red/White Lines On Photos and LCD


HI,

The scren is just displaying the input from the CCD (Digital Sensor that actually takes the picture).. If The pictures were fine, but the screen was funky if you could live with it then there wouldn't be a problem.

Since it's on both the screen AND on your photos it points to there being a fault with the CCD

Given the age of the camera, the cost of a repair I'm afraid it's time for a new camera. there's nothing you can do to fix this yourself.

Sorry for being the bearer of bad tidings.

If my advice was at least helpful please vote for me!
