Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

Pink/maroon horizontal stripes on the LCD when I'm shooting...

If I take a picture anyway (through the viewfinder), I get the same horizontal stripes. I have found that if I push the display button three times, I turn it off, turn it on with no settings displayed, and then turn it on with settings displayed, and the problem has disappeared for a while. It seems to be intermittant. It may work fine for a while, and then show the problem again. I love this camera, and it has been a great traveling companion. I don't want to replace it!! But I don't always have time to "putz" with it when I want a shot... so what's the solution?

I cannot use the lcd to take pics how do i use it


Canon EOS Rebel XT / 350D does not offer Liveview shooting option which newer cameras offer. It does not have contrast based auto focus system like the ones you see on point and shoot cameras either. LCD is used to review pictures taken or navigate through the menu system. Besides, LCD on the back of the camera is so small and lack the details anyway. You are better off using the small viewfinder it offers.

Flashing horizontal stripes on screen while shooting


The following is from Canon. You can send the camera back for free repair. Hope this helps.

It has recently come to our attention that the vendor-supplied CCD image sensor used in this Canon digital camera may cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all. While reports of this malfunction have been rare in the United States, we have determined that it may occur if the product is exposed to hot and humid environments.
Based on the information you have provided, it appears that you may have encountered this issue. To determine if the CCD (image sensor) is working properly, please follow these steps:

1. Insert a memory card with known good images on it into the camera.

2. Power the camera on to the Playback mode.

3. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel, and observe the LCD.

a. If the images are displayed properly, please proceed to step
four.

b. If the images are not displayed, or a "NO IMAGES" message appears, please ensure that the memory card contains known good images.

c. If the card contains known good images, and the issue persists with a second memory card, the camera will require service.

4. Switch the camera to the Camera mode. You may use any shooting mode(i.e. Auto, Manual).

5. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel.

6. Point the camera at a well-lit scene and observe the LCD and/or viewfinder. If the scene the camera is pointed at appears on the LCD and/or viewfinder, the CCD is operating properly. If the LCD and/or viewfinder remain black, the camera requires service.

Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned
malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair.

We would like to send you a pre-paid shipping label so that you may send your camera to our Factory Service Center for repair. Please reply to this message with the following information so we may send the label:

5. Digital camera model:
6. Camera Serial Number:
7. Date the camera was purchased:

Overall pink cast and pink stipe at top of all images taken.


Never had that camera, however, had the same problem -- the pink stripe and pink cast. Turns out the lens cover was slightly cracked and not opening and closing properly. Thus -- the pink cast.

I see nothing in the Viewfinder...


The camera has a mirror lock up feature for cleaning the CCD sensor. You may have engaged it. Check your manual about this function

Pink picture


the electronic viewfinder on almost all digital cameras if even they got one is a tiny resolution screen or a mirror reflecting the bigger or smaller lcd screen. switch to your Lcd screen and see if colors are ok or still pink, also look at pictures you have taken. if ok the problem soly lies on the viewfinder which I have many cameras like it and come to think of it they looked aliittle pink too. the view finder helps you only in sunny conditions that you cant see your regular Lcd screen. and should be able to give you a good idea of what you are shooting. pink in real digital colors means you lost some green . look through your menu and see if there is an adjustment for it if not and you cant live with it return for exchange. I looked up the specs and would love this camera. good luck
