I have my canon powershot A410 for one year and a half. But after I taked some pictures, the pictures appeared blurred or it is full of horizontal lines on the pic. I tried it with a flash and without but its all the same, I tought it first maybe it must be the lens, but when I sync with my PC, It's all the same pictures full of horizontal lines. What should I do? Is the problem from the lens or the image processor?... e-mail me and I will send you the sample images of the camera.. thank you very much for the assistance and consideration...

It is certainly the CCD failing.
Now you have had it over a year so warranty is out.
But there have been instances of certain CCD's being subject to a recall- and the camera being replaced.

if they are lines like these Canon Repairs the products also out of warranty. It is a sensor problem where some wiring come off with temperature shifts. Look at the pictures here and google for Canon Sensor recal: http://www.tian.cc/2008/05/canon-powershot-s1-is-recalled-due-to.html Regards,
If camera shows previously taken pictures in playback mode and does notshow live view to take fresh pictures then it is ccd imager chipfailure. CCD imager will be replaced in your Canon A80 camera. Canon offers free of cost ccd imager replacement, click Canon CCD Imager Advisory for details.
This is a known issue with Canon, it's mentioned on their support pages, FAQ ID: 37383. Horizontal lines appear in the preview picture once the photo is taken. I have a Canon Ixus 500 and I rang Canon UK and they gave me a case number and list of authorised dealers via email for a free repair.
Hope this helps
