Question about Canon PowerShot A450 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a Canon Powershot that I bought in 2007. A couple of months ago it started capturing hazy pictures which have horizontal lines running across the picture. After googling seeking to troubleshoot the problem, I can now say it is a CCD(sensor) problem. I'm in Africa and don't seem to find a reliable Digital Camera repairer here. What should I do? HELP1

Sorry but there's no way you'll be able to fix this other than going to a professional camera repairman (or send it back to Canon). But since your camera is out of warranty, it's probably cheaper to purchase a new camera.

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:

Blank black screen for my canon powershot S1 IS digital camera


This is a common problem with S1 IS and it is caused by faulty CCD sensor. Note that you can playback captured images without any problem but in capture mode all you get is blank screen. Will have to go to Canon but note that Canon repairs these models free of charge when it is the CCD sensor that stops working.

Powershot S1 IS trouble shooting in images of lcd monitor


Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.
