Fuzzy lines across picture on Canon Ixus 500

The camera switches on ok, but when i try to take pictures there appears to be fuzzy lines across the live view display to the extent that it is impossible to tell what is in the picture, If i wave my hand infront of the lens you can see movement but cannot make out any picture. The picture taken appears exactly as on view display.

Cannon s 500 Picture with Just lines


Hi,
This is a known issue with Canon, it's mentioned on their support pages, FAQ ID: 37383. Horizontal lines appear in the preview picture once the photo is taken. I have a Canon Ixus 500 and I rang Canon UK and they gave me a case number and list of authorised dealers via email for a free repair.
Hope this helps

Pictures have lines on them


Download your pictures on your computer. If the lines appear on the computer, then the problem is with the CCD itself and must be fixed by a technician. If the pictures are fine, the problem is with the camera's display electronics which also needs to be fixed by the manufacturer but it doesn't need to. It is mainly an annoyance, but a frustrating one I agree. I suspect that it is the second case. Regards, Denis
