I had that same problem and I have to say that Canon did right by me -- at no charge. I communicated with their service department via e-mail; I was sent a UPS voucher to send the camera in at no charge to me; and I did so. Canon determined the problem was vendor-related, fixed it, and returned it -- all of this within two weeks. And like I said, no charge at all. Did I mention the camera is two years old? I'd be ready to criticize Canon as much as necessary if the company had failed or refused to take care of this, so I feel equally obligated in this case to applaud. I can tell you the next time I look for a camera, I'll start with Canon.

Power Shot A70 will snap pictures but there are no images in the monitor and replaying mode shows only red light image taken. I am still able to view past images taken but can no longer see or take...


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

My canon power shot A470 is writing card locked


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Horizontal lines on display and printed image


I suspect your camera has a defective CCD which is quite common for the A75.   Canon is aware of the problem and has issued a recall for affected cameras.  I have had mine repaired under this recall.  Here is a link with some pictures which show what the problem looks like.

I have a power Shot A70 camera. The lcd monitor works in reviewing pictures already shot but does not work in the shooting picture mode. I can get the settings and all that in the shoot mode but no image


See this link. Instructions for contacting Canon are for US residents. If not in the US, contact your regional Canon service facility. This service notice is effective worldwide.

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.
