After taking a photo the screen shows the photo with fine white lines going across the screen and it almost whites out. We were wondering if the cost is higher than a new camera

Cost of a lcd panel for a digital camera runs aroudn 60-100+ dollars without labor. I'd buy a new camera, if it isnt a few years old.

My canon PowerShot S 410 has a pinkish blurry lines across the screen and that is what the picture turnes out to be. I use differant memory cards it makes no differance. The battries are the same age as...

The imaging sensor (CCD chip) has degraded due to age and failed. This is a common fault on digital cameras over six years old.

Replacing the chip is the only fix, but it's not cost effective on a camera as old as yours as it's job for professionals only.

Okay well if the images are okay on the PC and don't have any black lines across them it's just the LCD screen. Very expensive to replace and unnecessary if it's still working okay, it's a shame it wasn't still under it's 1 year guarantee; unless you extended it that is.. and you could take it back to the shop for repair or replacement.

This is caused by a stuck shutter. Since the camera is under a year old it is still under warranty.
