Question about Canon PowerShot A430 Digital Camera
I bought the camera july 2006 (16mths). Just a few days ago I notice
horizontal lines in all my still images. Video recording is ok and
playback is ok. For still image the image appear brighter and sometime
white (overexpose?) with constant interval horizontal lines. Magnified
it you can the lines is multicolored. Have change battery, sd card but
Talk to canon technician, he say it is the optical problem (he also say
this camera do not have CCD). Suggest I sent it to him for repair and
I had also experienced the same problem, pictures taken having over brightness and having horizontal lines. First I also suspected that it may be a CCD problem. But if it is a CCD problem ,why no problem in video recording ??. I had a supporting observation to think that it is an optical problem or some problem associated with the mechanical assembly because my camera is making some unusual noise while zooming , since I had observed this brightness issue. Again just after observing this over brightness issue I had tried taking zoomed shots. Then the picture was perfect !!!!!. So I think it will be some mechanical mistake itself . If anybody had more details on this issue please put the details.

My friend, I believe that that is a CCD issue. The horizonal lines and the interrmitent issues with the images are all related to a CCD issue that was notorious on the S-series camera.
Why the tech told you there is no CCD is beyond me, but all cameras either have a CCD or a form of the CCD and this is most likely causing you the issue.
eBay is a very good spot to find replacement parts!
