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

When I turn on my computer the monitor takes a long time to warm up and colors change and vertical lines flash across the screen from right to left before the screen becomes normal again. Now the power light even goes out upon turning on my computer and I have to unplug the video cord and plug it back in to start the screen back up which even takes longer.
Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and they will replace the CCD at no charge to you.
This is a known issue and should be covered under extended warranty.
Good luck my friend.
