Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannot take pictures

I can view pictures I take just fine. However, when I try to take a picture, the view screen shows horizonal lines (black, white, purple in color). The camera takes a photo of these lines, not the item I am trying to photograph. My camera is over 3 years old.

    The picture with my camera is pink in colour with blurry lines through, my husband has exactly the same model camera and of similar age and his is doing it too but in an intermittent way - we both would like help on how to get this problem solved as we both have the waterproof housings for this model (very expensive to replace all of the kit for both of us!) all previous photos on the memory card are fine.

Sounds like you might be in luck. These symptoms sound very much 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:
