Canon A620 - Pictures showing tightly spaced horizontal lines

Hi there, during a shooting session all of a sudden the pictures started to show a set of horizontal, tightly spaced "lines" in conjunction with over-exposure. This effect disappreared once, but reoccurred and is now a common state. Changing batteries or SD-Card did not have any effect; this error will appear in all modes with one exception: Video Mode. I addressed Canon (Germany) with this issue but they just recommended sending in the camera (my warranty expired ...) Any help or suggestion is greatly appreciated

    Update ...

    In the meantime I got this great camera repaired (at no cost !) - but unfortunately the shop did not mention what they actually fixed.

Camera makes overexposed pictures wiht lines can this be a software problem ?


Nope, this is a hardware problem and the camera needs to be worked on. Notice how your display works fine but the finished product exhibits the anomaly. The recording end is messed up.

Casio exilim EX-S500 overexpose


If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

It's need repair camera machine shutter.

try to use the zoom function during picture preview and you will see the horizontal bands. Time to change to a new CCD i guess..or maybe a new camera :-)

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:

Blurry white image when pics are taken during broad daylight


Try first to reset your camera. Press the menu button, go over to setup, go down to reset, press the right arrow, highlight reset and press set. Don't worry it won't erase any of the pictures on your memory card. If that doesn't work you can try and manually set the white balance on your camera and I would recommend sending it into repairs if that doesn't work since it's taking nighttime pictures fine. :)

Horizontal White Line


Sounds like something is getting hot causing voltage loss or drive pulse loss to the vertical IC. Maybe you have a bad solder joint. Try tapping the circuit board around the vertical section. A capacitor could be heating and opening up. Stargazer Also you might try using circuit cooler spray and make the problem show up.

Stationary horizontal lines


Thjeres a problem with the screen voltage driver voltage capacitor or the crt is going bad. have the shop test the b+ on the crt board first off . then remove the crt board and see if the voltage comes up. If it does the capaicitor is bad as it can take the load. But remeber theres extremly hi Voltage inside these sets so its never a good idea to try to do this your self unless you have the training to deal with HI Voltage and the proper saftey and test equipment. Good Luck
