I had read about the CCD problem, but I am not sure if that is my case? It is out of warrranty and I am not even in the us,in my country there isn´t a canon service for digital cameras, so I really need some help.

Re: A95 Start Problem

I'd suspect a broken ribbon cable connector latch where the keypad matrix ribbon connects to the main board.

Pink lines on canon powershot a95 camera. also when in shooting mode, camera screen flashes- like it is trying to set light levels.

Sensor gone bad. Factory defect. Canon had recall about that a few years ago. A bunch of sensors produced by one of their suppliers (also used in other brands) turned out defective. They repaired my A95 (well past warranty) for free a couple of yeas ago when it developed that problem. Don't know it they still would. Contact them.

There are quite a few of us with symilar problem, but the screen is not completely black: it has some purple or pinkish color when facing light. Old pics and menu can still be viewed. I noticed 4 symilar threads on Canon A95 within the last 5 mins without any search, just looking at the top questions.
