Question about Canon PowerShot A300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Distorted Picture I got my Canon PowerShot A300 for Christmas in 2004 and I only used it a hand full of times. And now I want to use it but the screen is very distorted. It looks like the picture that shows up on the LCD screen is stretched and extremly fuzzy. What can be wrong? Please help ASAP, camera needed tomorrow night!!! *STEPH*

This is a defective CCD being replaced at no charge by Canon. It's nothing you did but a part defective from the factory. Go here for details: http://www.usa.canon.com:80/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=223&modelid=8044&keycode=2112&id=29819

Grey screen

Clean , outside of lens, go to menu reset to factory defaults, try another new battery, take out memory card and wipe lightly with alcohol. If none of this works contact or call customer support for brand. You may have dead pixels, if that is the case it's time to buy a new camera. Jimmy
