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.

Affected cameras with this problem include: A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S230, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a

I was just using my point and shoot S550 when all of a sudden, the photos I am taking produce a blank white screen with some colored vertical lines in parts of the photos. It was working fine a second ago....


I'm having the same problem. The first foto looks alright but the rest is as above. I do'nt have a sollution but i had removed the battery and the memory card and left the camera open in the hope it will be a damp issue. just now i take some new foto's and i still got the stripes but i have a picture. Hope some one will have the right sollution.

Vertical lines on screen. Can't see picture at


It sounds like you need a new screen.

Buy one on Ebay for 20 Euro (inclusive of postage)

youtube.com has great videos of how to change a screen.
You will need a tweezers and very small "philips" (cross/plus head) screwdriver.
Make sure the screwdriver has magnets....so that you dont lose some screws....they are tiny.

If you buy a replacement "LCD Screen Display" on Ebay then usually all the tools you need are included. (I just checked).


I also have just replaced my screen....screen was damaged...LCD leaked and lots of vertical lines on a now only WHITE screen.
Camera works fine now.

Check to see if the camera is still working.
Try taking some pictures....and then put the SD-card into your computer to see if the pictures are being taken.

Vertical lines obscuring image


The matrix is dead. Probably because of an intensive light got into the lense while the camera was in night mode. It's dead. Nothing can be done.
