    When I download the pictures the lines are still there. Is it posible to change the CCD Chip? Do you know the model or part number?

    not exactly! I was expecting a final solution. But the problem is dipper and unfixeable. I will need to buy a new camera.

Have you downloaded the pictures? Are the lines still there? If so this means the CCD chip inside is the problem. If the pictures look fine on your computer then its an LCD problem. If you have owned the camera more then a year then it is out of warranty but you can still send it in to be repaired. Follow this link to find the nearest service center to you. If you still have any other questions or need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

SOURCE: PICTURES ARE PINK WITH HORIZONTAL LINES EXCEPT IN RECORDING MODE!

It's a known problem. Canon is stepping up and repairing them regardless of warranty state. There is an 800-number and an email link. See the Service Notice: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=225&modelid=13390&keycode=2112&id=29819

SOURCE: : Pictures are in gray and have horizontal lines

This is typically a bad image chip within the camera. You didn't specify what kind of camera you have, but chances are it is a point and shoot, non SLR camera. If this is indeed the case, it will likely be more economical to purchase a new camera as opposed to repairing this one.

Horizontal Lines throughout the images


What Canon technician told you that your camera did not have a CCD? You sure that he was from Canon? And also the cost of repair would likely be more than the latest A480. Also note that you can get an A470 for around $70 these days. But no this is likely not CCD failure and is more likely a stuck shutter.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html

Note that the article says to set your camera to 15 second exposure. This is not possible with the A430. Instead set it to manual mode, turn the flash off, and go into a darkened room. Take your picture there. Open the door while the red and yellow lights are flashing. Now the possibility for success with this method is not that great so don't get your hopes up. But it's worth a try before shopping around for a new camera.
