    According to the updated advisory, available on the company's US website (as well as other regional Canon websites), the additional eleven digital camera models shown above in red may now be eligible for free service regardless of warranty status, should any malfunction be caused by the CCD sensor.

    For repair instructions, visit the Canon USA support website. To read the specific service advisory for your model, use the pulldown menus to browse for your specific model, or simply type the model number into the box provided at the bottom of the page and click the "Search" button.

    The Canon support website holds no forms or other needed documents, so you can save yourself some time (if you live in the US or Puerto Rico) by just calling the Canon Customer Support line at 1-800-828-4040. Support hours are Monday-Friday 8am to 12 midnight, and Saturday from 10am-8pm. (All times EST.) Alternately, you can send email to: carecenter@cits.canon.com.

    For your easy reference, here is a link to the original IR news story on the Canon advisory, as well as one to the expanded Canon advisory IR news story.

Nikon D90,,,brandnew..the LCD screen flickers when recording a movie and when playback pictures they first come up a little blurry and then when they come to sharp focus the picture shrinks slightly....do...


Hello,

The D90 movie mode is not perfect.
Keep the camera steady when shooting movies to reduce flicker.

It sound like you are not in focus when you start recording the movie. Press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press ok to record.
If you do not want the camera to change focus in shot keep the shutter halfway down.

I hope this helps.

1. Verify connections are color coded.

2. If they are correct, take out movie, press Play/Stop at same time on the front of the unit (not remote) to reset any settings that may have been changed.

LCD screen is extremely blurred


It is probably not the LCD itself, but an element that is protecting the LCD is bent out of shape.

What is CCD?


A CCD is the Charged Coupling Device. It is the IC chip that scans image from the lens into binary data so that it can be stored onto your memory card. Sometimes they can have different results in light because they are photo senstive and can burn out. That is why it's very important never to shoot pictures in direct sunlight with these unless you have a filter becuase the direct sunlight can burn out the CCD unit.
