This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

    Thanks, this was a great tip to go to the camerarepair website above. I had a flashing lcd screen and it turns out or looks likely that somehow I pushed the DISP display button to trigger this, by pressing the DISP display button on the back of the camera again fixed the problem.

Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


Your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you
