    In color, the picture comes out with thin lines accross it, more so at the top of the picture. In black and white, I get a dark band across the top.

Hi,
This is a known issue with Canon, it's mentioned on their support pages, FAQ ID: 37383. Horizontal lines appear in the preview picture once the photo is taken. I have a Canon Ixus 500 and I rang Canon UK and they gave me a case number and list of authorised dealers via email for a free repair.
Hope this helps

My cannon power shot sd600 viewer doesnt turn on


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. Try pressing this button one more time to see if it turns back on.

Cannon sd 600,self timer How to use the selftimer


1. Make sure the camera is in shooting mode (silhouette of camera)
2. Press Func/Set button
3. Scroll down to Drive Mode icon (usually single square)
4. Use left/right arrow to select 2-sec or 10-sec delay (clock with 2 or 10 next to it)
5. Press Func/Set button

Now whenever you press the shutter button, the camera will delay 2 or 10 seconds before snapping the picture. Remember to set back to single shot (single square) or continuous shooting (three overlaid squares) mode when done.

The image is getting blurred


Hi

The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting
movies.)

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.
