"I have a Canon Powershot G12 Camera. The LCD screen works but its image is very washed out with weird colors. I can see the image and the shooting information and sometimes the image is OK for a few...

This is a common problem on the Canon G12. It has something to do with the CCD Sensor yet Canon doesn't acknowledge it to be a problem. To get this fixed, I would suggest: All they specialize in is the Canons. It's $89 through them to fix that common problem, plus they service the camera and do the internal correction to prevent this from reoccurring again on the camera. They tend to be the best bet for the Canon's, definitely for this issue, they'd be the place. Good luck

What you are experiencing are symptoms of a failing CCD (imaging sensor). Most often, the sensor needs to be replaced. If you need to have it serviced, a great place for these G12 models is: They just service the Canon Powershots exclusively and the work through them is superb. They are not expensive at all, it runs $89 through them to fix this problem. That looks after parts, labor, servicing for the camera, and the return shipping included. This is where a lot of people go for help with the Canons. Hope that helps you with it, best of luck.

I have a Canon G12 camera whic worked fine for six months. Recently many of the photos were far overexposed, but there was no clue anything was wrong before I took the picture. The problem was intermittant...

This is a wise move considering the cost to repair them tend to be high, and warranty can be a life saver in this case. The problem you are describing appears to to be in the lens housing where the sensor is located, the pug on the sensor board has been known to work itself loose causing all kinds of symptoms.

I have a 2000 reg polo i want to put water in for the enginge and it says G12 with a picture of a book and a ! inside the pick what is this? please

A new "G12" coolant additive, recognized by its red color, has been introduced during m.y. 1997, replacing the "G11" used previously.
The "G11" and "G12" coolant additives are NOT interchangeable, and must NEVER be mixed. Use only water or "G12" coolant additive G 012 A8D A1 to top up cooling systems filled with "G12" = GLYSANTIN Alu Protect/G30 silikatfrei

Once coolants stabilize and provided the system remains sealed and airtight (has not overheated where it vented) then the system should not require any flushing or changing of the coolant (specific to HOAT/G12 type coolants).

G12 after about 5,000-10,000 miles reaches that point of stability where the coolant has neutralized any reactions that may occur. As long as that stability is not thrown off, leave it alone.

In the case of the TDI the water pump requires replacement, this should be the only time that the cooling system is drained and flushed and the system refilled. sticking with G12 insures that the original balance of chemicals are maintained as close as possible to the stabilization point to eliminate any risk of system contamination or corrosion.

It's really simple, G12 out, G12 in, to insure system protection and integrity.

There are two coolant temp sensors. One by the oil filler tube and one near the bottom radiator hose near the radiator.
When you flushed the coolant did you replace with VW rated G12 coloant? Very Important! - You can't use over the counter coolant - it'll cause sludge in your system. You have to use G12...

Hope this helps!
