Question about Canon PowerShot A430 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have the same problem.

My camera had a similar problem when it was on warranty period. It started with white horizontal lines on the photos in day light. and no problems were observed on the indoor photos
I had sent back for servicing and when I got it back, it was kind of okay. and the photos had a less number of horizontal lines.
after the warranty period has been completed, the problem started increasing when taking the picture on the day light while the indoor photos looked good. now I can't take any photos on the daylight at all... and it looked like the camera is 100% useless.
I guess its the tactics of cannon company to use the gradually deterioting sensors in Cannon A430 so that the product will be useless and the user will be forced to opt for a new camera. I would recommend never to go for Cannon because of this reason. I was trying to search thier website and found nothing helpful regarding this issue.
So I am more convinced that they are knowingly creating an issue which will force the user to go for a new camera so that thier business can keep going ...

Horizontal lines on image


When the lines are only on the display and not in the photo you shoot, please try to live with it, unless the camera is still in warranty. Repairs will cost from one to a couple of hundred dollar. I don't think it is worth it, unless you have a very expensive system camera or DSLR.
The error can become worse, when the camera was wet or made a drop. If so, I think you are better of with a new one then a repair.

Electronic shutter in lens mechanism got bad and you need to replace complete lens assembly of DSC-S500 camera.
Of course new lens assembly would cost more then camera worth so best option is to buy new camera.

Usually the warranty is for the first 30 days. If you are in this period, you might get it fix for free or replace.

This sure looks like a CCD image sensor failure. If so, you can't fix this yourself. If the camera is less than a year old, Canon will fix this for you under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.

White Lines and blurry Pictures


If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

Can't repair by yourself.
It's need repair camera machine shutter.

Maybe it's because the camera is overheated, let it cool off. Or maybe it's because the monitor is broken. If so, then replace it.

Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics


It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.
