Question about Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH / IXUS 800 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lines on image

(bought last Christmas, if age is a question) My images all have faint horizontal lines. The lines cover the whole image. I tried downloading to see if it was just a screen problem, but it is not. They show in the downloaded images as well. I've cleaned the lens to no avail. Does anyone know what is going on here? And if it's fixable!?

Hi

The fact that the lines started appearing when you deleted images from the Ricoh Caplio R5 is probably coincidental.

It sound as if the problem is a faulty image sensor (sometimes incorrectly called the CCD or CMOS sensor, depending on what type).

If it's under warranty, contact Ricoh and have them repair it.

Horizontal lines on Canon A410 images


This sounds like a 'stuck shutter'. Especially if it does not make the faint clicking noise when taking a picture anymore.

Horizontal Lines throughout the images


My friend, I believe that that is a CCD issue. The horizonal lines and the interrmitent issues with the images are all related to a CCD issue that was notorious on the S-series camera.
Why the tech told you there is no CCD is beyond me, but all cameras either have a CCD or a form of the CCD and this is most likely causing you the issue.

eBay is a very good spot to find replacement parts!
