Heavily distorted, purplish pictures

Since a few days, my pictures are very heavily distorted. The colors look purple and it is almost impossible to see what has been photographed. The problem is already visible on the LCD screen.

SOURCE: picture is very distorted

First of all, if you're still under warranty no use trying solutions that might be only temporary, go complain. Since you have normality relapses, it sounds like its something a reset could fix. Follow the instructions in your manual on how to perform a full reset, in case you no longer have the manual i'll attach that part of it to my post(just from a slightly different camera, if you have a digital manual for the 402 please post it). Now, if that doesn't work, i would suggest you try resetting the good old way - take out all batteries, disconnect all cables, and make sure the camera just lies there taking it easy for a few days, then try again. No go? it might be a problem with the memory card, try replacing. If you don't have one available try going to a repair shop/retailer and ask for one of their cards just to test it as a last resort before sending it for repair. Good luck

SOURCE: PURPLE LINES SHOWING ON SCREEN WHEN ATTEMPTING TO TAKE PHOTOS

Your camera likely needs a new CCD imaging sensor. It is a cute little thing and is very expensive to replace. I've seen deals to repair any digital camera on eBay and I would check for a local repair person in your area. You can use the search on this site to see who might be close by. I have an A310 doing the same thing.

CCD is bad, needs replacement. TEst to see if you can see recorded pictures. If not, then professional repair is needed.

SOURCE: I have a s7000 where I just get a distorted

This is the classic symptom of a failed CCD sensor. The only fix is to have the sensor replaced, but as the camera is around five years old now any repairs will not be cost effective.

Sorry, but your camera has reached the end of it's useful lifespan: five years is pretty good going for any digital camera, they simply do not last anywhere near as long as the film cameras they replaced.

Your only real choice is to buy a new replacement, but if all you need is a similar technical specification to your current model then there are plenty of cameras for less than £100 which will do at least as good a job as your present camera. Just don't expect a sub £100 camera to last anywhere near five years though.

Sorry I can't be more positive, but I hope that I've still helped you.

Yellow is missing in printouts, and the color is heavily purple, even after putting in new red cartridge and doing a deep clean


Yellow cartridge is clogged or bad. If yellow is not being out put then it will throw the other colors off. You could print a yellow, light blue, magenta (pinkish) , and black squares using MS paint or other paint program. This will narrow down which cartridge has a problem.

You'll need to replace the motherboard, the computer does not have a separate sound card. Very expensive to fix unless you can do the work yourself.

Camera showing/taking distorted images


According to many respected sources with far more expertise than myself, the symptoms you are describing also fall within the realm of Canon CCD failure. In Canon's Service Notice: CCD Image Sensor Advisory, they outline the most common symptoms (distorted images, LCD showing only a black screen, etc.). They have conveniently limited the description to the bare minimum. More symptoms of the failing CCD include: pictures appearing on LCD show up with severe color variations (pink-purplish or green tint), colored "streaks" or "lines" throughout pictures, and wavy distortions in image. Most of these symptoms include the color variations, but not always. The lines or waves can appear in any direction and with varying degrees of severity. Some LCDs do not go black, but turn totally purple. Here is a link to a very informative article that should clear up any questions you might have.
Digital Camera Repair Blog

If nothing else, call the Canon Customer Support Center at 1-800-828-4040. They will ask questions to identify whether or not you are having the same symptoms as described in the Product Advisory. I have been through this twice, and both times they were very nice and very helpful. Even if you don't qualify for the free repair, it didn't cost a thing to find out.
I hope this has been helpful.

Tv color


The solder joints on the degaussing thermistor have cracked or the thermistor itself has opened, and the CRT is heavily gaussed. You can degauss (demagnetize) the picture tube and the colors should return to normal, but the thermister should be resoldered or replaced.
