Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

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.

Re: Pitctures are gray & have horizonal lines

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.

Re: Pitctures are gray & have horizonal lines

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.

You're not alone, and we don't know why - we're gonna send them back to Pentax.

Faded screen with lines across screen

hi Jenredd, i think there is something wrong with ccd, if so it is serious... . I experienced some disturbed picture on lcd or whole black lcd due to ccd problem. As u said you pictures are fadded it means may be ccd is damaged. If so you have to replace the ccd at any authorised repairer for fuji. as you mentioned other problem there is nothing common between both. for that i suppose there is some problem in either usb socket or cord , so first check the cord, if it is ok then we can doubt on usb socket. But in both the way you have to go to Fuji . good luck
