There is a problem with the CCD image sensor for the following cameras:
- Camcorders: ZR60, ZR65 MC, ZR70 MC, ZR80, ZR85, ZR90, ELURA 40 MC, ELURA 50
- Digital Cameras A60, A70, A75, A300, A310, S230, SD100, SD110, A40(*), A80(*), A85(*), A95(*), S1 IS(*), S60(*), S200(*), S330(*), S400(*), S410(*), S500(*)

Malfunction:
It has been confirmed that the connecting parts of the internal wiring of the CCD used in affected products may become disconnected, especially if the affected products are stored or used in high-temperature and high-humidity environments. If this occurs, the signal is not output from the CCD normally in Shooting Mode, which may cause a distorted image or the absence of an image. This malfunction can be confirmed on the LCD monitor screen during shooting. The same malfunction also appears on the recorded image.
Canon's Response:
Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, the products listed above exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if Canon determines that the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair.

My display screen is showing pixelated noise, or completely black. When it does display, all I get are off colour, horizontal dancing lines.


Camera is defect for sure, but don't tell anyone in the service centre, because they warn you not to take a camera out in extreme cold. You should not se the camera in environments below zero degrees
I'm afraid you can't fix it yourself, and before bringing it to a Canon Certified repair centre, ask them what it could cost.

Display screen does not show picture


Could be your camera is still working, but some settings are messed up?
You could have turned off the display. In the menu with IMAGE DISP. Is used to save battery power.
Then try making pictures in the mode automatic. Because if you switched to scene like bright sunlight or snow your pictures can be very dark.

WHEN CAMERA IS TURNED ON THE SCREEN WILL SHOW PAST PICTURES FINE BUT WHEN THE SELECTOR SWITCH IS MOVED TO EITHER TAKE A NEW PICTURE OR TO THE MOVIE MODE THE DISPLAY SCREEN IS BLACK WITH LIKE PURPLISH LINES...


From your description, it sounds to me like the image sensor within the camera went bad.
This can happen from a few things:
  • Camera dropped
  • Moisture
  • Rattling around in a bag or suitcase
  • Knocking into things while in the pocket
  • Leaving it powered on in the pocket
  • Prolonged exposure to bright lights
Try taking a picture while the camera is in picture mode even if you can't see what it is of, then either review the pictures to see if what you just took shows up without issues or transfer it to your computer.
If you can see a picture afterwards when reviewing your images, then it sounds like the firmware may have gotten corrupted. In this case, you should update the cameras firmware using this LINK.
If you cannot see the image you just took, or it has those same purple lines, then it is a hardware problem and can only be fixed by replacing the camera or by sending it in for repair.
Even if you cannot see the image you just took, I would suggest going ahead with the firmware update to see if it works.

Display has a "blotch" on it, camera not working


Sounds like a damaged LCD screen, was this camera kept in a camera case? These cameras need to be stored in a good case, they take great pictures but are somewhat fragile.

No display at all. But able to take pictures with Canon A75


Sounds like you might have accidentally turned the display off. Turn on the camera and press the DISP button once on the back of your camera.

Time for a new Camera. It is about 150.00 to replace the LCD. it is cheaper to replace it unless you can just use the viewfinder alone!!
