Question about Canon PowerShot S60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Display image is great but when I take picture the image is ligh

Light and vague with faint lines like a grid. When I post the image on my flickr account, they look that way as well. I have two different memory cards, and I've tried using both, and the same problem happens so I don;t think it's my memory card. Previously to this, I was sometimes getting a purplish haze on parts of the image.

My camera has lines running through the screen. Did I break something?

Probably not, many digital cameras have the option to display grid lines on the display to make it easier to frame your pictures. Look in your camera manual to see if you can turn grid lines on or off.

Grid lines can help you frame horizontal pictures (like a landscape).

Hope that helps!

Pictures,Very light and lines through it

Keep the ISO as low as possible.
Keep your exposure as low as possible.

Lines come in screen or lines come just in display. If it just comes in display then you need to just switch off the Grid Lines in the menu

Sound but no picture on a akai lct3201td

There could be 2 failures with your TV:
1. The power supply might no be providing 24 volts to the back light inverter board or the voltage is low.
2. If the voltage is normal then is more likely a defective back light inverter board.
The best way to know if you have a back light inverter problem would be to shine the light from a flash light near the screen and observe it from a 45 degrees angle and you should be able to see a fainted image. No image at this point might mean a power supply failure. If the image is there but fainted, then the back light inverter board is defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

What is the focusing screen display?

There are two display modes newly added for the DiMAGE 7i, grid and scale. The grid mode is to show a grid over the entire screen. This makes it easy to align the camera to objects vertically or horizontally. In the scale display mode, horizontal and vertical lines cross at the image center to divide the view to four sections, and each axis is scaled. This function is useful for close-up photography. The grid or scale on display is not recorded.
