Question about Canon PowerShot SD100 / IXUS II Digital Camera
Hi. I hope someone can help. On my 4-year old SD-100 I noticed today that when I turn the camera on ther are white lines running up and down the screen constantly. These lines are white. When I take photos the lines appear on the photos in either white or red color. I noticed red lines when taking photos of my son in an aquarium (maybe it was the lights there that made the lines red). Any other photo I take, I see white lines. Any idea what the problem is? Is it easily and cheaply fixable? Is it time for a new camera? Any help is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

The scren is just displaying the input from the CCD (Digital Sensor that actually takes the picture).. If The pictures were fine, but the screen was funky if you could live with it then there wouldn't be a problem.
Since it's on both the screen AND on your photos it points to there being a fault with the CCD
Given the age of the camera, the cost of a repair I'm afraid it's time for a new camera. there's nothing you can do to fix this yourself.
Sorry for being the bearer of bad tidings.
If my advice was at least helpful please vote for me!
