Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

Image on LCD jumps

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.

    I m facing exactly the same problem. It started happening all of a sudden.

    I have the same problem, but worse. The LCD is just noise like the screen of a TV set tuned to a black channel.

Samsung 5271f. Picture usually great but sometimes when an image with horizontal lines appears (e.g. crawl at the bottom of the screen) picture jumps and flickers. Reverts back after crawl disappears.

If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Line faults & possible causes to LCD & Plasma screen are given with illustrations. You can get an idea about the fault to an extent. Faults to all LCD & Plasma screen are similar, irrespective of its brand and screen size.

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.

Pinkish screen and green blurred picture

Sounds like the image sensor is malfunctioning (common symptoms: distorted images with purple or green cast, completely dark images, flickering lines across the screen.)

Image on LCD jumps

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): or if they don't ship to europe, you can try the uk site- or try one of the other countries listed here, and search for "important notice", or the equivalent in the local language on the box to the left: Good luck

LCD screen 'flicker'

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.
