SOURCE: Horizontal lines

I have the same problem with my camera and it appears to be a well known problem with this camera and some others models beside of canon's: The problem appears to be caused by a defective CCD integrated in the camera. The CCD is not very resistant to various enviromental factors such as humidity and changes of temperature, causing the "porcelain" cover of the CCD "brake" and make a contact failure or something like that. The fact is that Canon, Sony and some other brands annouced CCD Repair "or" replacement programs totally free of charge to the cameras presenting this problem. To identify if this is your problem, your camera must show at least one of these symptoms: *The images in screen LCD present/display a very noticeable dye towards some color. *The screen is completely black. *The images are corrupted or distorted. *The images have horizontal lines or bands. *The images have vertical lines or bands. - The problem appears because the type of glue that was used in the manufacture on the part of Sony, is sensible to the heat and the humidity, causing that the sensor separates of its base and creating failures in the connectors of the CCD. In a publication made by Canon Asia they annouce: Affected products that exhibit this phenomenon will be repaired free of charge, regardless of the warranty status, if disconnection of the internal wiring of the CCD is confirmed. which means, that at least in these places, Canon will free repair the cameras affected by this problem after even expired the guarantee. I hope this information is useful for you. Please rate my solution.

SOURCE: PICTURES ARE PINK WITH HORIZONTAL LINES EXCEPT IN RECORDING MODE!

It's a known problem. Canon is stepping up and repairing them regardless of warranty state. There is an 800-number and an email link. See the Service Notice: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=225&modelid=13390&keycode=2112&id=29819

Picture comes up with horizontal lines


The viewfinder is failing, or it may be a bad flexiboard, or ribbon assy. The proof is that the pictures look okay, but the viewing is not proper.

If you want it serviced, you will have to send the camera to the Sony authorized service rep. They will be able to change the necessary parts and re-adjust as required.

Green lines


Due to vertical section failure horizontal line apprears. You did not mention about picture. Green horizontal line means with picture or without picture. With picture means there is some leakage. Without picture only singe horizontal line means vertical section totally not working. Particularly green horizontal line means maybe leads to jungle ic failure. Please mention your simptom clearly what you get and what you will not get both video and audio. It will be helpful to answer. Based on your question this is my small information.

Distorted picture when looking through view finder or lcd screen


the video playback is sampled off the video out and independently processed sorta like a TV signal to project on the lcd screen.
horizontal lines means you lost sync circuit and needs troubleshooting. Hopefully maybe a bad connection with a ribbon cable for the ICs and components are hard to change and jammed tight. I would order a video board.
