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.

TAC-125 telefunken does not switch of and the screen is sowing green and gray lines across the screen


If the camcorder won't switch off, just open the battery compartment and remove the batteries. Let the camcorder stand for a couple of hours (or preferably overnight), then replace the batteries and try again.
FWIW, many camcorders will only let you transfer files to a PC if the camcorder is mains-powered, so that the transfer will not be interrupted by the battery failing part way through.

When I take a picture the screen shows the picture but has black and white horizonal lines.When I transfer to computer lines remain in picture. I have a DSCS650


I have the same issue with my DSC s650 , I showed it to a Sony Service center they said its a CCD issue might need to replace that. The cost for replacement in India (Pune) was 2250.So I thought of buying a new one at say 4K INR

Our LN40A630 has three horizontal white lines across the screen on power up (center, center of upper half , and center of lower half). After about five minutes the lines go away. Tried Picture Test in...


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.

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
