It is better if u contact the customer care because any image sensor problem are treated "free" of charge...if you still have the warranty it would be helpful too...

Have a nice day!

No image on lcd screen or viewfinder


This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor. This will require disassembling the camera and removing the lens assembly to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Te image sensor is replaceable. The cost for the part runs about $130. The labor to install it will vary from shop to shop but you are probably looking at around $200 to repair your camera.

Can not display the video fram


It sounds like the image sensor (CCD) is bad. See this link for Canon's service advisory on this issue. Canon will replace the image sensor at no cost, regardless of warranty status if they determine this is the problem.
