Question about Canon PowerShot SD100 / IXUS II Digital Camera

Viewfinder Distorted All of a sudden, my viewfinder became distorted. The camera did not fall or anything, but I cant see a thing through it. The pictures taken are also distorted. I live in South Africa. Who can I speak to regarding this, and what is the problem here? Thanks.

I had an issue with mine and i contacted cannon and they fixed my 4 year old for free and the shipping was free. whatever the malfunction was it was in a few models so they were all covered. my camera would only show a white fuzz looking thing and it would take and store that same thing for a picture.

Agree that it's probably a bad CCD. However, there's a good chance Canon will fix this fre under warranty. Go to their website for details. It's not a normal failure.

It's sounding like a bad ccd imager, could be a connection problem however. if it is the imager it will most like cost more than it's worth to get it fixed. $200 to $250 ballpark.

When I turn on my camera the LCD screen is balck and I cant see anything thruough the lens. It does take pics because when I upload the disck Ic an see the new pics


Double check if the viewfinder is operable (not the LDC but the little thing you look through with one eye above it). Try pressing the display button to flip through the different modes as you're looking through the viewfinder. If the viewfinder does work (and the LCD screen doesn't come on as you're scrolling through the modes) then it is most likely dead (broken). If the viewfinder works, you're can still use the camera otherwise it's probably time to get a new one.

There's a little scrolling wheel to the left of the viewfinder; move it up or down until the image is clearest.

Distorted Viewfinder Only In PIcture Mode


Yes, You are correct, it does not seem to be problem with the CCD. Insted it seems to be with shutter control or apparture control mechanism of the camera. Normaly there is one single cable carring signal to the shutter blade mechanism and the diaphram control. If this cable is damaged it shows the same symptoms as you have described in your mail. Get in touch with an expert camera repairer.
