Question about Cameras
The camera screen bears a number of verticle bars and a lot of dots. These disturbances flashes on and off very frequently every fraction of a second. The disturbances appear on the screen both in standby and recording mode. The recorded samples after transferring to the PC also has same disturbances.
I hate to say this, but you better look out or a new camera.
If it is a new camera, with warranty, just bring it back, but I think repairing this one will cost much more than it is worth.

Recording a movie of a subject that is brightly lit by the sun or some other very bright light source can cause vertical lines or bars to appear in the image during playback. This is due to a CCD phenomenon called "smearing." Note that lines or bars appear in movie images only, but not in snapshots. Smearing does not indicate malfunction of the camera.

I had this same exact thing happen to me while taking pictures at a wedding. Sadly this can only be fixed BY Canon and your camera has to be shipped out to them. It cost me $260. The first person to answer was right about the problem.... something with the mirror. The salesguy at the store (independant local retailer) tried to convince me to buy a NEW Rebel for twice the cost of the repair. Might be a better investment.

I had the same problem and you go to menu then REC mode and make sure it is on normal, mine was on multi burst and thats why it was recording on every setting. Hope this helps :)

The LCD/Electronic Viewfinder will not display an image or the image is distorted.
1. Press display (DISP.) button to turn the display on 2. If all troubleshooting has failed, please have your PowerShot A520 serviced

1. Press display (DISP.) button to turn the display on Do this when your camera is on and in shooting mode. This should fix the problem. I had to try it a couple of times before it worked.
