Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Pitctures are gray & have horizonal lines

Beginning today all of my pictures are faded gray & have horizonal lines across them. This is both on the camera screen and when transfered to my computer. I've changed batteries, re-formatted the compact flash card, tried resetting to default setting. Does this mean my camera has died? Could the card be bad? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help.

Canon has a recall for this. I just sent mine in. They fixed it for free (including shipping) and I had it back in a week! It was great. Here's info on the recall. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=225&modelid=13390&keycode=2112&id=29819

The ccd image processor is most likely bad, or the horizontal sync lost it. eather way i would change the main board out inside..its probably layered ..u can look for a horizontal adjustment or any on the board...tweek it one way the other way and back closer to where u found it. then find a tech if that dont work or sell on ebay i bay broken cameras but i wont buy yours. I like fujifilm and the old minoltas and pentax.

This is a sign of your LCD panel beginning to die. Sometime soon those lines won't fade away and will become permanent parts of your TV screen.

Considering the fact that your TV is approx 3-4 years old, this is normally the expected lifespan of a TV. Once the TV becomes unwatchable, your best bet would be to begin shopping for a new one.

Got same problem. Beginning to suspect the traveling lamp or associated electronics. Looking out for parts suppliers for elimination trials. Strange, once in a far while it works. Updated drivers again this very day.Suggest you try a good power adapter, and if you are technical, search for loose connections. Will keep you posted if I solve mine, being an electrical engineer, NOT electronics.

Gray faded look on top to picture


It can be the anty polarizing plastic screen that protects the display.

Often it causes grey or reddish shadows, in that case must be replaced.

You have bad capacitors in the vertical sweep circuit. If you have no electronic repair experience, you will have to take the set into a repair shop as these parts are soldered into a printed circuit board and need to be tested with an ESR cpacitor meter. Good luck
