Answers :

Your Canon A70 is one of those camers made with bad CCDs. That is the image sensor has known defect after production and market launch. Instead of recall their products, Canon offer owners to send/bring in their camera for CCD replacement without service/parts charge. Go to Canon web site to find an authorized service centre nearest to where you live, phone them up to confirm free service. You may either mail in or bring it to them in person. As far as I know, Canon will reimburse the shipping cost to you as well as sending the fixed camera for free.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera

Black screen Hi, I have a Powershot S1iS (CANNON), and it worked just fine for about 2 years now. Last week - suddenly the screen went black, and I can not see anything. When I switch to see the pictures I've taken before, I am able to do that, and I do see them. When I try to take a picture - I'm able to, but the picture is black.

Using Sony CD-Rs I continue to get Disc Error messages after a few pictures, and then the pictures already taken are no longer available for download. Loosing many photos this way. Put in a new disc and it works for a while only to do this again. Had some previous problems similar to this with Memorex CD-RWs but it is getting worse and worse. Is this a repairable defect? This is a fairly new camera. Wish I had a memory stick instead of the CD memory!!

The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive ... Canon Digital Cameras
