Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Screen just flashes/rolling lines in every mode

This started shortly after beginning a video shoot. The screen just flashes or it becomes a series of rolling lines. If you take a picture anyway - you get a photo of the flashing/rolling light. Battery change didn't help. I tried gently tapping on various parts of the camera (as described in another topic on this board) most especially the battery compartment. Neither of these have helped or changed the condition. Much Thanks, moonmaiden

Tell Canon Tech Support about this. This is very similar to an other problem where a bad batch of CCD's is the problem. The camera is replaced free of charge.

My Seiko led light flashes blue and red i get the logo to start with and that's all the lights keep flashing i have no pic


You do have Video or else the picture of your screen would not appear. I suggest you look at the INPUT, for example the lines into the TV, HDMI cords etc. If you have an extra TV or even a computer monitor, wire it up and see if these devices provide an active video stream. In short, the problem has to be external or with the input section of the TV.

This is a sign of your LCD panel beginning to die. Sometime soon those lines won't fade away and will become permanent parts of your TV screen.

Considering the fact that your TV is approx 3-4 years old, this is normally the expected lifespan of a TV. Once the TV becomes unwatchable, your best bet would be to begin shopping for a new one.

Sony KP-51WS500 projection tv. Screen is green with curved lines


The green picture tube has an internal short. Happened a lot with that model. The tubes are no longer availible. But a reputable company called Video Display will rebuild the tube completely. But the tube must be pulled and shipped to them. Most repair shops would charge around $400 to $500 for the complete job.

Tv beginning to flash green with horizontal white lines


From your description it sounds like a bad picture tube. The lines are called retrace lines. There is a small chance that a component on the small board that connects to the neck of the tube may be bad. Without model number information it is very difficult so say further. Some picture tubes can be re-jeuvenated with the appropriate machine ( at a TV repar shop)
If you feel adventurous and are careful you might try GENTLY tapping the neck of the tube and see if picture improves/goes out. If the tapping does change the picture it is definitely the tube

Mag innovision LT716s monitor


When I turn on my computer the monitor takes a long time to warm up and colors change and vertical lines flash across the screen from right to left before the screen becomes normal again. Now the power light even goes out upon turning on my computer and I have to unplug the video cord and plug it back in to start the screen back up which even takes longer.

LINES ROLL THROUGH THE PICTURE


Not to discourage you, but here is an extensive thread from other Samsung owners with similar problems:

Sounds like the digital/DMD board has noise in those modes.
hope you are under warranty
