Question about Canon PowerShot SD100 / IXUS II Digital Camera
Hi, My sd200 power shot's screen went to a mostly white with a dark streek across it the other day after turning it on. It has a small line through the dark streek and some differeent color bars running from top to bottom. Is the screen gone or is there a fix? I had just been using it outside an hour before and it worked fine.
I am in Antarctica working until mid feb. so sending it to canon may not work time wise and they will not send back to a po box or an apo address.
The camera still takes photos because I checked it on another persons camera. the battery is also good.
Any sugestions, Danny, email@example.com
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, so it can wait until you leave Antartica. Please check the following two links for more info:

It sounds like your camera has encountered either a bad CCD issue, which is the image sensor capture device under the lens. Usually when it goes bad, you get crazy colors, or problems with the image. Or you might have a broken LCD, which can be replaced for fairly cheap as well. It is kind of hard to tell from your description with the problem. There is a pretty good company that might have a replacement CCD for you, they usually sell them for cheap 15-25 dollars, or a replacement LCD for around 60-100 dollars.
