There is a CCD sensor mechanism problem. Go to a specialist to fix it. Is a very complicated procedure and you cant fix it at home.This is caused by the sand and dust particles and many Canon A 430 cameras have this problem.

The Canon A430 uses MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Trying to download my pictures from Canon Powershot A430 onto my new laptop Windows 7. Downloaded the disk and now trying without success to download my pictures onto the computer. Help??


Supported windows Operating system Windows 98 Second edition(SE)
Windows Me
Windows 2000 Service pack 4
Windows XP SP 1 and SP 2 Canon PowerShot A430 has no update about the new driver software for windows 7 Try doing this direct transfer in your computer 1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera. 2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power.
The camera and computer will be able to communicate. 3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow] 4. Download the images.
* Download the images using the camera or the computer.
* By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder. ** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another. ** Issue on the operating system compatibility.

Photos come with horizontal stripes and too bright


Hello naushed,

I had the same issue with the white horizontal lines with myCanon Powershot series camera too. When taking pictures, I get the horizontal lines. In daylight, I almost cannot see the pictures because it gives me very bright output. In darker areas, the picture can still be toleratedbut white lines are still there. Although when I am taking a video,the quality is good.

I was able to read that there is one part insidethe camera's mechanism that is faulty. Its a CCD problem. You should bring this to a CanonAuthorized service center and they should replace and fix the faultypart, free of charge. I got my Camera fixed for FREE! I was able to do macro shots again.Trust me and go to canon. What I did is to print this advisory fromcanon itself. And show it to them.
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=8288&keycode=2112&id=29819

As part of their advisory:

"Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon willrepair, free of charge, the products listed above exhibiting theabove-mentioned malfunction if Canon determines that the malfunction iscaused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost ofshipping and handling in connection with this repair.
"

Hope this helps.

Canon A430 - horizontal lines


Tend to agree with you that it's a common design problem for the A430, but it's a very different issue than CCD failure mentioned in you referenced article.

Please see this Fixya post instead of the one that you mention above. Unfortunately, Canon has yet to officially recognize this A430 specific problem. But if you reference this Fixya post, (include a link), when contacting Canon (if in US, email is CareCenter@cits.canon.com. You'll have to research www.canon.com to find an equivalent UK email contact), who knows you might get lucky

Image result over bright at day light


Same problem here with the A430 I contacted Canon tech support and it looks like I'm going to be buying a new camera because it's not worth the effort and money to get it fixed. Rest assured, the new camera will not be a Canon.
