Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
When I turn on my camera, instead of being able to view what is in the viewfinder, the back screen is mainly dark with a few white/pink horizontal streaks...they move about, and sometimes are not there at all - just black. Do you know what's going on? It worked fine recently.
The lcd screen is black with white and pink flickering lines- will pick up light/dark changes, but no image.
This definitely sounds like 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:
