    Thanks excellent, I do not want to really give it to a technician so I will be careful and try to have a go myself. One last thing can you provide me with the name of the cable if possible so I can replace or google it.! Excellent Service!

The horzontal lines would have to do with the screen unless you see those on the actual video footage on the memory stick.

Fact is I have this cam and know everything about it by experience the issues with these cameras one drop and there basically toast.

Now if there is not horizontal lines on the video itself and the video is clear the issue would be the LCD on the unit.

Let me know and update me with any new information.

    Thank you for the speedy reply, Well this camera is a customer return and it just looks brand new no scratches or anything slight indication that it has been dropped. And when I select the video option it makes no difference to the LCD display which usually is 'White Blank' when i tap the LCD gently it display plenty of horizontal lines. Any chance you can guide me of how I can get over this and repair. Thanks for you help in advance.

    Yeah you just confirmed it is the display itself You might have a loose connection inside the housing from what it sounds like. I can assure you when these are dropped this would do this as i dropped mine! Cost me $90 bucks parts and labor to have Samsung fix.

    I am not saying you dropped it but this sounds like a loose connection in the housing or the neck there is a little flat neck that coonect to the camera body.


    hope this helps do not forget to rate or leave feedback

My led samsung tv has a horizontal line and the upper right corner shows a white vertical lines


Not good. You may have a tab failure. A repair shop may be able to diagnose and repair this, but most likely the lcd panel is broken. The panel is the most expensive part of flat tv's. A new panel will cost more than a used tv.

Distorted picture when looking through view finder or lcd screen


the video playback is sampled off the video out and independently processed sorta like a TV signal to project on the lcd screen.
horizontal lines means you lost sync circuit and needs troubleshooting. Hopefully maybe a bad connection with a ribbon cable for the ICs and components are hard to change and jammed tight. I would order a video board.

Distorted Image


if it records the distortion then i suspect the guides are out of adjustment or your capstand roller is pushing the tape to high on the guides. need to have a profession serviced.

Camera showing/taking distorted images


According to many respected sources with far more expertise than myself, the symptoms you are describing also fall within the realm of Canon CCD failure. In Canon's Service Notice: CCD Image Sensor Advisory, they outline the most common symptoms (distorted images, LCD showing only a black screen, etc.). They have conveniently limited the description to the bare minimum. More symptoms of the failing CCD include: pictures appearing on LCD show up with severe color variations (pink-purplish or green tint), colored "streaks" or "lines" throughout pictures, and wavy distortions in image. Most of these symptoms include the color variations, but not always. The lines or waves can appear in any direction and with varying degrees of severity. Some LCDs do not go black, but turn totally purple. Here is a link to a very informative article that should clear up any questions you might have.
Digital Camera Repair Blog

If nothing else, call the Canon Customer Support Center at 1-800-828-4040. They will ask questions to identify whether or not you are having the same symptoms as described in the Product Advisory. I have been through this twice, and both times they were very nice and very helpful. Even if you don't qualify for the free repair, it didn't cost a thing to find out.
I hope this has been helpful.
