Re: Horizontal LINES

If you are getting fine horizontal lines thet means the picture is over exposing. most probably the apparture or the shutter blade mechanism is not working fine. needs repairs.

Canon has acknowledge this fault and they usually accept the repair for FREE regardless of warranty. Please click the link below to give you a proper documentation about the ccd failure.

The pictures have horizontal lines through them. The veiw screen is fine. When you review or save them to the computer they show up whiter and with lines. Thanks ahead for any help.

If this doesn't apear on the print pictures taken directly from the SD card. It has something to do with the settings for the picture transferre on your computer.
Try and reset/adjust the settings within the transferre programe. I cannot tell you the eact steps for that since it will depend on the programe you're using. But it can usually be done right before transferring pics to the computer.

If helpful pls. recommend/rate me and or give me a review. TXS

Horizontal lines on the screen after the picture is taken

Remove the Battery from the Camera then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the Battery pack and turn on the Camera and reset it to the original factory settings by selecting the "Initialize" option under Setup1.

If the issue persists then service will be required.

Horizontal Lines through the photo

Horizontal may not be due to the CCD sensor. It can be due to the lens itself. I swap lens from a non-working camera to replace the one with horizontal lines. I found out that I was able to get the camera to work to take great pictures.

Does these pictures have the lines when you transfer them to a computer? If so,, than it is likely a capacitor needs to be changed out which is causing the interference. If it does not show up when you transfer them, than it may just be the review program on the camera.

get new batteries, if recharging your current batteries does not work (to stop it shorting out).

reduce your shutter exposure, by changing to Manual Mode (M), selecting +/-, and then the left button (flash) around the Menu OK button. Mine works fine at 1s shutter speed, but was showing horizontal lines before that ...

Horizontal Plaid Lines throughout the picture

You mentioned the Magnet possibility, check around its location or move it to another site. Check also cabling where it runs and connections swap USB connectors or even if you have other USB stuff running that you could do with out. Its all a process of elimination before you have to decide to bin it.
