HORIZONTAL FLICKERING ON SCREEN.


see the canon support site. Mine did the same thing then progressed to poor pictures as well. I just called them tonight and will be sending my camera off free of charge to be evaluated and then they will replace or repair for free if it is the sensor. :)

Good Luck! It sounds like they really want to remedy these situations!
