Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pictures are a mass of horizontal lines.

Hi When I take a picture the result is a mass of horizontal lines with the image still vaguely visible. I have tried all still shooting modes and settings with the same result. In movie mode the camera works OK. I have tried new batteries and memory card. Any ideas? thanks

The flex wire of the shutter is open already and the shutter is not closing when you take a picture and is overload thats why a horizontal lines appear when you take a picture..it need to be service your camera now...do not attempt to open the lens assembly cause it is too difficult to fix the flex wire of the shutter if you are not a technician...

Camera makes overexposed pictures wiht lines can this be a software problem ?


Nope, this is a hardware problem and the camera needs to be worked on. Notice how your display works fine but the finished product exhibits the anomaly. The recording end is messed up.

Can you make horizontal pictures fit the frame


I'll assume your picture is already oriented properly (horizontally), i.e. you do not need to rotate it.
There are 2 modes for displaying the photo ... (1) the ORIGINAL mode - displays the photo in actual photo size, which may result in part of the photo not being visible on the screen, or, (2) the OPTIMAL mode - which reduces the size and resolution to best fit the screen.
To set image size mode, select the SETUP on the HOME screen display, then highlight and select the DISPLAY IMAGE SIZE button, and go from there.
The first (ORIGINAL) mode is usually the default mode. When you select the OPTIMAL mode, the picture will be scaled to fit the size of the screen ... but you may see "dark" bars (e.g. on top and bottom of the screen) if your picture does not fit the exact screen size.

Horizontal lines in pictures


hi If u find that the lines are vertical that is often a result of taking pictures of very bright subjects. This is  called vertical streaking. If the lines are horizontal lines there is probably something wrong with your sensor and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician , and they will send it out to have it looked at. hope this helps!
thank u rate me!!!

Horizontal Lines after-photo.


Hi, I don't know if this is going to be your problem, but recently the Canon anounced a recall for Canon S1 IS, due CCD problems. Most people with this problem complains of lines on the image, or the image going completely black. Some are having their CCD changed, but most of the users are having their S1 replaced for a brand new S3. Contact the Canon Technical Support, and maybe you get a S3 for free...
