This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
Use a Q-tip with alcohol to clean all the batter contacts (battery cover and inside the battery compartment), and a small hook into the compartment to pull up the contacts a little bit up. The idea is to make the batteries connect properly. Use NiMh rechargeable batteries or Alkaline batteries, don’t use other Dry batteries, which are not designed for digital camera.
Well with a clutch of cameras showing the same fault - together with other queries of a similar nature I suggest you contact Canon on an
Educational level- for a bulk replacement deal.
There are obviously showing a common manufacturing fault
Hi. I bought a used A70 that had that problem. I disassembled the outer body panels and found that a base panel assembly screw was too long, and was touching the LCD's ground cable, at the cable's tip. I changed the screw for a shorter one and it was settled. It never happened again.
Make sure the camera is not in Document mode . Document takes a picture with added contrast so text stands out.
Make sure the camera is not set to Infinity focus . When you select Infinity Focus, the camera automatically turns off the flash and auto focus so you get sharp, clear pictures.
Make sure the camera is set to Fill, Auto, or Red Eye flash. See your camera manual for details about setting the flash.
