Question about Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The screen of my camera is scrambled lookinig.

The screen of my camera comes on, but when it does it just a bunch of colors and lines on the right hand side. Nothing will make it change. I changed the batteries and that didn't help either.

If the menus and icons look normal, but images are distorted or discolored, you may have an image sensor (CCD) problem. See Canon's service notice regarding this issue here. Canon will repair your camera at no cost regardless of warranty. Contact them at your regional Canon service agency.

The image has become a bunch of parallel lines of various colors. I was caught in a hard rainstorm and the G-6 was exposed to that moisture for several minutes.


boiler59,
Sounds like the moisture got into the camera. Water (environmental) damage is not covered by your warranty. I would suggest that you remove the battery right away to prevent further damage. Leave the battery door open to allow air to circulate and dry out the camera. Purchase a can of compressed air and blow it into the seams in the camera in order to dry out the inside. You can get the compressed air at Walmart. Then allow the camera to sit overnight in a warm dry environment. With a fully charged battery try using the camera again. If you are still experiencing the parallel line problem it would have to be looked at at an authorized Canon repair shop.

Photo and video mode slow along with rest


If you mean that all you see in the viewfinder is puprle (or a bunch of other colors/lines/patterns) then the CCD is damaged or a ribbon connector has come loose. Either way it is going to require service.
