    Camera ICD is showing purple lines and sometimes no picture at all - - most of the time if I push on the bottom, it will work, but now that doesn't work - - I have sent this camera in because there was a recall on this problem and now its doing it again. What do I do now?

    Thanks. Joy

    Screen had color lines on it, then went black. Sometimes you get a picture, but mostley it's black.

    I cannot view through the LCD screen to take a picture it is solid black with lines or flashes some. The camera will still take a picture and I can review it and the picture looks fine. Not sure what is wrong

Canon fixed mine free of charge last summer, but i fear the problem is back again. they fixed a new sensor in the camera but i dont think to colours are quite as nice in the photos taken with the new sensor.

Sorry Douggie, you are havin a serious problem. your problem shows that there is no problem with its LCD screen itself but it is problem related with CCD sensor. Camera needs CCD replacement compulsaryly. So that no one can help you. It is advisable to go to Canon shop. thank you and good luck...

Coloured lines down the right side of screen

if the lines extend top to bottom and are thin, then the LCD panel is most likely defective.

Laptop screen

Your lcd probably went out, either that or the video card / chip on your motherboard. Usually it's the lcd itself though, occasionally it's the lcd cable but majority of time it's just the lcd itself. You can try using an external monitor to see if you still get a display from the laptop. If you do it points closer the lcd being the problem.
