Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
I inserted sd card and started format process, but screen is black and seems frozen.
Get a black or streaky display when trying to take a picture, when taken in that mode through the viewfinder, the picture looks either black or streaky as well. Changed card, that's not the issue, sometimes goes away and works normally, any idea what's wrong?
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
