That often happens as a result of a short on this model. Try emailing them at this site: www.camerasandparts.com They service the Canon Powershot cameras exclusively and they do excellent work, all for about half of what Canon wants. If you need help with it, that site is the place for a Powershot. They are excellent, send them an email and I'm sure they can help you with this problem. Good luck.
You have a distorted image problem which could be caused by a few things on that camera. Try this site: www.camerasandparts.com
They just specialize in service for the Canon Powershot Cameras and the
good thing with them is they have the distorted image fix on their site
for the G7. In other words, you don't have to worry what's causing it,
their repair packages fix it no matter what the cause. The nice thing
with them is they are not expensive at all and they do the servicing
for the camera too. I hope that helps, that's where many go for help on
This is known problem of ccd imager chip failure in Canon A95 and ccd imager chip will be replaced to fix the issue. Local camera repair shop will help you because camera will take apart in detail and soldering work is also involved. Thanks.
if they are lines like these Canon Repairs the products also out of warranty. It is a sensor problem where some wiring come off with temperature shifts. Look at the pictures here and google for Canon Sensor recal: http://www.tian.cc/2008/05/canon-powershot-s1-is-recalled-due-to.html Regards,
I suspect your camera has a defective CCD which is quite common for the A75. Canon is aware of the problem and has issued a recall for affected cameras. I have had mine repaired under this recall. Here is a link with some pictures which show what the problem looks like.
I hope this helps
A friend suggested I uninstall the digital camera solution disk and then reinstall it. I did so and although my computer seemed to crash once it was restarted after turning it off and back on and getting a blue screen from microsoft stating I had to start it manually everything worked out. I am so thankful. I got about 100 pictures downloaded and stored into the appropriate album. Thank you for your concern.
If you have a connection to the camera, go into my computer and get images directly off the camera using scanner and camera wizard, microsoft's default program. This will at least allow you to transfer your images until you can resolve the software problem.
If you have no connection to the camera via your computer, you need to try some other troubleshooting steps to get a connection. I will post those below in the next post.
