Question about Canon PowerShot A430 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Taken pictures appear with horizontal lines

I have my canon powershot A410 for one year and a half. But after I taked some pictures, the pictures appeared blurred or it is full of horizontal lines on the pic. I tried it with a flash and without but its all the same, I tought it first maybe it must be the lens, but when I sync with my PC, It's all the same pictures full of horizontal lines. What should I do? Is the problem from the lens or the image processor?... e-mail me and I will send you the sample images of the camera.. thank you very much for the assistance and consideration... I bought the camera july 2006 (16mths). Just a few days ago I notice horizontal lines in all my still images. Video recording is ok and playback is ok. For still image the image appear brighter and sometime white (overexpose?) with constant interval horizontal lines. Magnified it you can the lines is multicolored. Have change battery, sd card but no effect. Talk to canon technician, he say it is the optical problem (he also say this camera do not have CCD). Suggest I sent it to him for repair and checking.

    My powershot 430A also developed the same problems few days back. In night, the pictures have horizontal lines in them whereas in the daylight they are almost totally white. I bought the camera in June 2006.

    I'm having the same problems.  When I take pictures, they either have white horizontal lines going through them or the colors are inverted or something--my white dog showed up as black and purple.  My video recording works fine and playback is fine, but I haven't been able to take a normal picture.

Cannon PowerShot A80. Pictures come out with red tint and what appears to be horizontal lines across complete image. However, record video without problem.

If camera shows previously taken pictures in playback mode and does notshow live view to take fresh pictures then it is ccd imager chipfailure. CCD imager will be replaced in your Canon A80 camera.
Canon offers free of cost ccd imager replacement, click Canon CCD Imager Advisory for details.

Horizontal lines on Canon A410 images

This sounds like a 'stuck shutter'. Especially if it does not make the faint clicking noise when taking a picture anymore.

Cannon s 500 Picture with Just lines

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

Taken pictures appear with horizontal lines

It is certainly the CCD failing. Now you have had it over a year so warranty is out. But there have been instances of certain CCD's being subject to a recall- and the camera being replaced. Give Canon a support a go - you may get lucky.
