It sounds to me you have a CCD issue, which is the part of the camera that captures and converts the image to be digitally saved to your memory card (very overly simplified for the sake of diagnostics).
If you can see your menus and everything else just fine on the camera, and the photos and live view are looking like that, then I would say you have a CCD issue. You might try to send the camera in to Canon for a repair, or if its under warrenty, even bettter!

Dear Peter,

It sounds to me as though your camera is experiencing the early stages of a CCD sensor problem. Users will often experience color changes and/or lines in their LCD screens when viewed in picture taking modes at this stage of the problem. Later on their sensors will ultimately fail completely and they will typicallt get nothing but a black screen.

To differentiate between a sensor problem and a LCD screen problem, try viewing your LCD screen in several different shooting modes (e.g. automatic, manual, program AE, etc) and then view your screen while in your menu (by depressing the menu button in any shooting mode). If you can clearly see your menu (OR, while in playback, pictures that were taken before the issue began) then it is your CCD image sensor and not your LCD screen.

If, however, all of these modes gives you the same distortion, it is your LCD screen itself that has experienced a problem. In either case, however, the primary solution is to send the camera in for service.

If you are under your 1 Year warranty this is usually no problem. If you are out of your warranty period and (and this is a BIG and) are capable of repairing your digital camera yourself, you have the alternate option of ordering just the defective part and installing it yourself. Replacment parts, however, come with no technical support and no instructions so make absolutely sure you are capable of repairing the camera should you choose this lower cost repair option. Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

What do pictures taken at night/poor light look like ?? if they are an improvment ,
your Exposure/Auto-Light/White Balance settings may be horribly configured.

Firstly I'd try Resetting the camera to default settings by using the settings menu .
>Menu >Settings >Reset default settings

This should eliminate poor settings as a suspect for the problem.

I looked at the manual and found that the codes are not listed in the book. The only suggestion they have it to take the battery out and put it back it. Turn the power on and see what happens.

Sometimes plugging it into an electrical outlet if you have one for your camera can reset it as well.

If the error doesn't go away, you should contact Canon and see what the error code means.

This procedure is typical of all their cameras when an error code is displayed.

TURN CAMERA ON FIRST, PLUG IN USB, GO TO MY COMPUTER, YOU WILL SEE A DRIVE THAT HAS YOUR CAMERA ON IT. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DOUBLE CLICK AND OPEN THAT DRIVE.

ANOTHER THING YOU CAN DO IS TAKE MEMORY CARD OUT OF CAMERA, PUT MEM CARD IN COMPUTER, GO TO MY COMPUTER, FIND DRIVE WITH MEMORY CARD. DOUBLE CLICK AND OPEN FILE.

YOU CAN CLICK AND DRAG PHOTOS FROM THAT DRIVE AND DROP THEM IN ANY FOLDER OF YOUR CHOICE.

YOU MUST HAVE THE LATEST USB DRIVERS FOR YOUR EXACT CAMERA FOR YOUR COMPUTER TO READ IT.

How to set date stamp on Canon Powershot SD630?


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

You could try you local electrical or photo retailer but I'd get a quote first. I don't intend to be rude but its likely the repair could cost more than the camera is worth.

Bright White Screen


Most likely either your LCD has gone bad or the cable has either shifted. Even if the LCD is pure white, the LCD can still fail or be bad.

Here is a link to a guy who does repair and replacement for LCD, and also sells the LCD if you want to replace it yourself.
