Re: Striped horizontal lines on picture
Depending on whats inside your lens it is likely to be either:
1) The light filter has jammed or the ribbon connecting it has broken.
2) solenoid for the apperture shutters has jammed or lost power.
I fix Fuji's and Samsung's mainly so couldn't say for certain exactly.

If you have both, lines on the display, and on the pictures, I'm afraid something is wring with the sensor, or with the connections to the sensor. That is if you have the same lines on every picture.
If you only have horizontal lines, when taking pictures of bright lights in a dark area, it is just a phenomena of the camera. In almost all digital camera's this can happen.
Not sure it is on every picture you take, but digital cameras doe have problems with bright lights in a dark environment. From such a light bright lines can go horizontal. If in normal light, your camera does not have the problem, I guess you now have an explanation.
I had the same issue with the white horizontal lines with myCanon Powershot series camera too. When taking pictures, I get the horizontal lines. In daylight, I almost cannot see the pictures because it gives me very bright output. In darker areas, the picture can still be toleratedbut white lines are still there. Although when I am taking a video,the quality is good.
As part of their advisory: "Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon willrepair, free of charge, the products listed above exhibiting theabove-mentioned malfunction if Canon determines that the malfunction iscaused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost ofshipping and handling in connection with this repair."
Hi, By dropping the camera you have caused some shock damage to the LED display so you will no doubt have get it repaired. Saying that, if you copy the pictures to a computer you may find that the pictures are fine.
No, it's not a software problem. The problem is that the shutter
doesn't work so it can't control the amount of light taken so the
pictures are very bright with horizontal lines. There are usualy two
causes - a broken shutter cable inside the lens or the shuuter blades
are stuck - may happen if the lens get wet or something adhesive gets
in it. It's a hardware problem so I suggest you contact local Canon or
other camera service center. It is considered a hard repair so it could
get expensive. I don't think it's worth it, so I would suggest you get
If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality
variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure
cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid,
because the camera shutter fault.
Mine had the same problem (except the stripes are horizontal). I sent it to Canon and sure enough it is the CCD problem that many of these have. The good news is that it is covered under a recall and Canon will fix it free, including the shipping.
The shutter is stuck. The electronic "noise" created by the solenoid trying to move the shutter blades causes the lines on your pictures. The bright outdoor pictures is due to the fact that the shutter is jammed open.
You can try tapping the camera on the sides and bottom. This may jar the baldes loose. Failing that, you will have to find a shop that can obtain a replacement lens assembly for your camera.
