Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

2 Answers

Pictures come out all grey with white lines across the screen

I've had my camera for a couple of years and has always worked perfectly. Today however I tried taking a picture and although the image looked great on the digital screen as soon as I pressed the button the picture came out all grey with white lines across the screen. I've tried changing the mode and replacing the batteries but no joy - any help/advice would be much appreciated...especially as we're off on holiday in 3days!! Many thanks, Oliver

Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics


It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.

White pictures and lines across pictures


Try this to isolate the problem.
Switch on the camera in auto and put it into full optical zoom. Now turn the camera to face you and angle it so that you can see into the lens without reflection. On full zoom the internal lens will be right up to the outer lens. Now press the button to take a picture. You should be able to see the shutter cover the inside lens and then open again. Did it completely cover the lens? It should do. If not then you will get an over exposed picture or a picture with lines across it.
