This camera sounds like it will need service.

Canon does offer deep discounts in the Canon Loyalty program for situations like yours once you are beyond the one year manufacturer's warranty.
It may be true that it would cost more to repair than to replace, and that's why the Loyalty program is great because you will at least save a bundle on getting another camera.

Hope this helps.

Upon newly purchased, vertical lines appearing intermittently with blurred images, puzzy or color changed every picture, very baddddd model, them!!! cost of lens is more than new, so why buy sony cam...


Hi,

This is a common problem. Check the previous images saved. If even the saved images/video's looked blurred, this confirms defective LCD screen. If saved images are fine, then this is highly suggestive of faulty CCD sensor.

If that is LCD screen, it could be an expensive deal to get it replaced as compared to the cost of the product. However, if it is CCD sensor, you could contact Sony and see, if there is any recall for it as in the past, there were certain recalls due to CCD sensor.However, as this is pretty new and under warranty, get it replaced/repaired ASAP.

Hallo, my canon powershot A420 camera shows horizontal white lines in LCD screen mostly in night shots and the day light shots appear blurred as if more light is entering and the image is not clear.


I am afraid this seems to be a hardware error in the sensor. If the image is purplish in color when blurred it is similar to my and another user's problem. He/she contacted the manufacturer and they said they can fix it for $250. I am not a repair specialist so there may be a simpler cause and solution- good luck.

This sounds 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:

A95 Power shot Images on the LCD screen are monochrome,blurred with stripes


Unfortunutly this sounds like the cable connecting the screen to the main board is either loose or damaged. I would return it to the store you got it from.

Sony DSC-W70 LCD Problem


You will need to describe what you see on the LCD in more detail in order for me to tell you what the problem is. There are two different issues that can cause things like what you are seeing. 1: Cracked LCD. You will see lines which resemble cracked glass. You will see bright vivid colors with specks of black or stark white all over. The image problems may be only in one portion of the screen. The LCD is made of glass, so if you look closely and see patterns that look like broken glass - this is your issue. Replace the LCD. 2: Bad LCD connection. You will see distorted colors, the screen may blank out and flicker when you shake the camera or press on the housing near the screen. If neither of these describe what you are seeing, post back and give more details and I will respond further. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
