I switch on camera and while viewing on LCD, image flickers and jumps, gets horizontal lines across and changes colour (pinkish, or greenish/black parts)
I have a canon A95 digital camera. All of a sudden the LCD screen in Shooting mode is displaying coloured horizontal lines pink / greenish and these lines are flickering. The LCD shows the picture perfectly in view mode.I need help to get rid of this problem.

victor_adams, If reconnecting the VGA cable to the pc several times won't cure problem, may need to fix or refurbish the units switch-mode-power-supply and or replace the cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps with new ones! Not an easy task for newbie!!! Retrevo. com says its time to retire this unit and get new one. Visit YOUTUBE for video clips of lcd monitor disassembly and lcd monitor repair before you jump into trying to repair/refurbish this old unit!!! 12fixlouie
I hope you will be pleased to hear that you'r eprobably eligilble for a free repair from sony. This is a known problem that many companies had with the CCD sensors inside the digicams, they finaly accepted resposibility one by one(sony being the last I think, 2 years after they stopped using the faulty CCD).
Get yours fixed through here(the american site): http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/news-item.pl?mdl=DSCV1&news_id=118

Try setting the video output option to NTSC (if it's on PAL). I know this sounds funny, but I have heard some rumblings about this option somehow creating a LCD flicker. If it doesn't work, I apologize in advance for wasting your time!
My camera is on NTSC and I haven't seen any flicker on the file numbers on the LCD.
