Blue line There is a blue vertical line through the screen, comes out on the pictures. Seems to be worse in low light situations. Camera is 18months old. Also seems to be a rather loud static noise when the camera is turned on.

    So I guess the question then becomes repair or replace. I wonder what an estimate to replace ccd would be?

This usually happens when there is a defective CCD unit, This is the part that looks at the image and sends the signals to the cameras electronic systems. the unit has failed and will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: dark shadow on right side of picture

sounds like a shutter leaf dropping into the image. however, they are usually horizontal and more likely to manifest when in landscape mode. (horizontal, normal)
try using flash pointed up to ceiling.
also, could need to check for auto sync speed setting. usually 1/125 to 1/60. if its off, it could be catching the shutter in the wrong place.
check manual for settings for using flash.

SOURCE: Camera will take picture, but the picture is coming out black!!!! Help Please!!!

Dear vera11:

The symptoms you're describing sound like a classic case of having a faiiled CCD image sensor.

First try pressing the display (DISP) button on the back of your camera several times to see if your image returns at any time. One of the three display modes is "off" to preserve battery life. Your problem may be as simple as inadvertently pressing this button into the off mode.

If that doesn't work, try doing a reset and then removing your batteries from the camera for a few minutes, reinstalling them and turning the camera on to test the LCD screen.

If your screen is still black, but you can clearly see pictures taken previous to the problem, and you can clearly see the menu system when you press the MENU button, then you likely have a CCD sensor problem. Contact Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 to have the camera repaired.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

SOURCE: Problems with LCD screen

I called Canon support and they told me to hold the Menu button down for about 6 seconds and then it will ask you if you want to reset, check okay and then use the set button.  If that doesn't work they will repair your camera for free... it's something to do with the CCD unit.

This may be a manufacturing defect. Canon will repair an A80, regardless of warranty status, if it exhibits particular sensor problems.

Canon is fixing this problem on my camera with no charge, It is a problem with the CCD imager that they either replace or send you a new refurbished (later model) camera). Sorry I don't have the specifics. Check the Canon website for details or call them. Thanks to this website for all the information!!

Blue vertical line on LCD screen


Thus meaning what display on the LCD is exactly what "enters" through the lens. Is this a hairline or thick line appearing on the LCD and does the same happen on the photos/pictures when they are downloaded on a PC? If so "something" could have infiltrated into/onto the camera lens....

Vertical lines on screen. Can't see picture at


It sounds like you need a new screen.

Buy one on Ebay for 20 Euro (inclusive of postage)

youtube.com has great videos of how to change a screen.
You will need a tweezers and very small "philips" (cross/plus head) screwdriver.
Make sure the screwdriver has magnets....so that you dont lose some screws....they are tiny.

If you buy a replacement "LCD Screen Display" on Ebay then usually all the tools you need are included. (I just checked).


I also have just replaced my screen....screen was damaged...LCD leaked and lots of vertical lines on a now only WHITE screen.
Camera works fine now.

Check to see if the camera is still working.
Try taking some pictures....and then put the SD-card into your computer to see if the pictures are being taken.

Sony KF50WE610 Vertical Blue Lines Across Screen


the vertical blue lines indicate some interference from other electronic gadgets near your tv. it started showing up on my sony grand wega when i installed my wireless modem. i almost ordered a new rear projection lamp costing over $100 but decided to experiment. i first moved my desk computer farther away from the tv then isolated the wireless modem router by placing it inside a small glass - the vertical blue lines became lighter in color so i dedided to find another small glass that fit inside the first glass container then put the router in the double glass - no more blue lines and my wireless modem router still works.
do some deductive thinking to figure out what's messing up your tv and isolate the interference.
good luck!

PT-47WX, Blue streaks across the screen?


It is not a bulb. It is a picture tube. If there are thin blue lines across the entire screen, not just the edges, and the picture itself looks too blue, it means that the blue picture tube is being driven too hard. This could be because the blue screen voltage is too high, the boost voltage on the blue picture tube is too low, or the video output is leaky or shorted. If the picture has what looks like blue arcs and double images on one or more sides of the picture, it means that one of your convergence IC's has burned out and needs to be replaced. These are things that should be tested and serviced by a qualified tech, so allow an experienced tech to handle it for you.
