Pictures striped Wenn i was taking pictures today, suddenly (no change in the mode or menu) the taken pictures showed horizontal white stripes, very bad. The pictures are no use anymore! I really don't know how this could happen and how to repair this defect. I could show an image for example but I don't know how on this site?

Re: Pictures striped

1. Do the pictures look the same on your computer after downloading them? If so, try another memory card. If the same, your camera is defective, bring it to service. 2. If OK with another memory, try to reformat the defective memory, if that doesn't help - discard it, if it helps, use it for backup, never trust it very much.

Camera makes overexposed pictures wiht lines can this be a software problem ?

Nope, this is a hardware problem and the camera needs to be worked on. Notice how your display works fine but the finished product exhibits the anomaly. The recording end is messed up.

Turn on the camera
Pull the lens at maximum zoom
Turn off the flash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shoot the picture - look into the lens.

If no motion picture shutters in the lens:
1. Faulty flex cable shutter
2. Faulty valve solenoids
Requires repair of the shutter assembly in the lens

If you saw the shutter and blurry pictures as paint - matrix defective - Replace the camera matrix.

My daykight pictures are all white and hazy. What

If the pictures look normal while taking them, but become white after they have been taken and if they have horizontal stripes on them (zoom in the pictures to check it) then it's a broken shutter cable or stuck shutter blades. If they appear white before the picture has been taken, then it's a CCD problem. They are hardware problems, not software, so I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. You should contact your local Canon service center. I must warn you that all these problems are considered hard to repair, so it could get expensive.

Hope this helps!

Overall pink cast and pink stipe at top of all images taken.

Never had that camera, however, had the same problem -- the pink stripe and pink cast. Turns out the lens cover was slightly cracked and not opening and closing properly. Thus -- the pink cast.

Image looks with white verital striped lines in playback mode

Mine had the same problem (except the stripes are horizontal).  I sent it to Canon and sure enough it is the CCD problem that many of these have.  The good news is that it is covered under a recall and Canon will fix it free, including the shipping.
