Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera
I have a Canon SD400 that is having problems with the images. The photos have horizontal lines running through them.
Also, the outdoor photos, anything with sunlight, comes out overexposed. However, movies come out normal. This is all in automatic mode.
Any solutions? I could not find any recall info for the SD400 if this is a CCD image issue.
Here's a sample photo:
In both the situations the problem is with the apperture control mechanism of the camera. 1). sometimes the flexible ribbion cable carrying signal to the lense assembly get worn out, replacing the same will resolve the problem. 2) in some cases the leaf blades of the apperture gets sticky, cleaning of the same solves the problem. 3). If you happen to drop the camera then the alignment of the motor moving the blades get disturbed.
In all the cases only a good repair man can fix the problem .
