Unable to record images

The picture in the viewfinder (optical and screen) is a series of coloured lines from top to botton which move as the camera is moved across the subject. If I shoot this distorted image, no picture is recorded. Can you help?

Have had a similar issue with images on my 5700. Contacted Nikon lidcombe NSW, they said they would replace CCD as recall. Try contacting service dept direct at your local distributor, I found them only too happy to help.

This appears to be a processor problem There is I am afraid no user remedy. Depending on the age of the camera, it is possible that it has been subject to a recall because of defective CCD's- Now get onto Nikon customer support and they will advise you accordingly. They may price a repair - which will be truly astronomical if they do ,so be ready for it.

Image has lines and pink in colour

This maybe two problems, the pink color hue in the picture and lines from lens shutter problems. Your LCD is still good. You have to replace motherboard and lens.

Sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This turns the screen on and off in photo mode to save batteries (you'd then use the optical viewfinder in its place). Just press the button one more time with the camera turned on.

When i take a picture although i centralise an object in the centre if the screen, when the shot is taken it moves downwards and off centre? why is this?

I presume that you're using the optical viewfinder and taking close-up photos.

If so, then your camera is fine but you are making a simple mistake. What's happening is called "parallax error". The viewfinder lens does not see exactly the same view as the camera lens because it's slightly higher and off to one side. For most subjects greater than a few feet away the error is insignificant, but for close ups it becomes a problem. Many optical viewfinders of your type will include framing lines. These show the approximate image which will be taken at distances of more than a few feet, and may have a second set of stubby lines to show where the image will be cut off during close-ups.

Your fix is to simply be aware of parallax error and allow for it when composing your images.

I hope that this has answered your question; if so then please take a moment to rate my reply. If it hasn't then please add a comment with any additional detail you think will help and I'll try again when I'm next online.

I am unable to see what I am taking a picture of.

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

See this link. This is for the PowerShot S200, which is the US name for the IXUS V2. But the service notice applies world-wide. Contact your regional Canon service organization -- they should fix this for you at no cost.

In Camera mode, only streaky vertical lines visible on screen

Its a fault with many of the canons,
they have NOT recognised it,
but you can get it fixed free by a third party company
(cant remember off hand which one soz)

Funny how they do it for free,
as if canon are paying them so they dont have to own up !!!
