Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
This started shortly after beginning a video shoot. The screen just flashes or it becomes a series of rolling lines. If you take a picture anyway - you get a photo of the flashing/rolling light. Battery change didn't help. I tried gently tapping on various parts of the camera (as described in another topic on this board) most especially the battery compartment. Neither of these have helped or changed the condition. Much Thanks, moonmaiden
Tell Canon Tech Support about this. This is very similar to an other problem where a bad batch of CCD's is the problem. The camera is replaced free of charge.

Tips for a great answer:
If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera flash may be turned off or it is set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly lit environments. To turn on the flash so it works regardless of the lighting situation, press the flash button on the camera (or touch-screen LCD, if equipped) until the forced flash icon appears on the LCD screen. The flash button has a lightning bolt symbol on it
If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
