Question about Canon PowerShot A300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Black And White w/Horizontal Lines?

I take very good care of my Powersot A300. Never, in the 4 years that I've had it, have I ever, seen such a thing. Everytime I try to take a picture it works fine - until the picture comes back. The Pictures are all 'grayish', with horizontal lines!

Anyone have the same problem?

    t00NZ,



    Appreciate your comment/solution. I was researching this further after I posted this, and came up with the same solution. I just shipped it via UPS back to Canon IL.



    I remember buying this camera for about $199.00 in 2004, when it first came out, now on ebay it sells for about $15.00 (sad huh?).



    I can't believe Canon is even offering to fix this free, the camera is worthless in my opinion. It would be better and probably cheaper for Canon to send a new camera to everyone with this problem...- but i'll take this solution.



    I'm not endorsing anything here, but I'm starting to like Canon products - and their support and help for their customers.

    My wife's camera powershot A300 is about 3 1/2 years old. The real time digital image appears smeared or blurred . The downloaded pictures on the computer are the same. Pictures stored on the camera before this problem look good. Thanks for any help. Greg

    The problem I have is very similar, as desribed. Following the lead about contacting Canon, they are going to repair it free of charge. Lucky thing I searched 'FixYa'

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

    I wouldn't call the A300 worthless. I repair/collect Canon's, have quite a few of the modern ones, but am still impressed with the quality of photos my old A300 takes. The shutter lag between shots of this camera though is another story (hehehe).

My Sharp Copier AR-5320 print black and white horizontal parallel lines on the documents.


Check for scratches on the drum surface. If you have ran a lot of copies on there, its a good time to get it serviced. It could be the cleaning blade on the drum as well.
