Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
The problem is not constant but comes and goes. I can be taking pictures or video with no trouble and suddenly the display in the view finder, lcd screen and the picture produced by the camera will be a partial picture, a series of color smears or completely black. Some of the pictures will be very red and the subject will be misshapened almost like it was melting. The black ones may be completely black or have reddish bands across them.
I will appreciate any feedback on this problem, the cause and a possible cure.
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 this link for more info.
