Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blue line down the middle of the display screen

When I turned my camera on this morning I noticed that there is a thin blue line that goes down the right side of the display screen. The line is there all the time, whether I'm on camera, video or playback mode.

I bought the camera less than 6 months ago, and I'm sure I could take it back to Staples. I'd rather not though if there is something I can do to fix it. Any ideas?

No there's no simple way to fix that problem. To correct it would require opening the camera, thus voiding your warranty. Take it back for exchange. If it's longer than Staples will honor, then contact Canon directly at 1-800-828-4040 or 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666). Here's your warranty:

Vertical, pencil-thin blue line appears after 10 minutes of viewing (any source)


I would suspect a connection breaking down as the set heats up. A shop will probably have to put the set in a stand to hold it while they check for loose connections or defective components inside. Not a DIY job by any means. If this line went completely through the picture either vertically or horizontally and stayed there then this would have indicated a failure in the Panel itself. A thin Line any where on the screen consisting of one pixel in width is a Panel Failure according to Hitachi.
