I have 2 Canon Power Shot 70 cameras (one was a gift) The oldest I have owned for approximately 4 years...the other one slightly less. About one year ago while on vacation, the camera refused to take photos....all I got on the screen were a series of light pink-lavendar horizontal lines in a black background. Last week while at church camp the other camera did exactly the same thing!! Consumer Reports is recommending a Canon camera and at this point I am "gun-shy"! Do you have any suggestions?

My Canon A95 has horizontal grid lines on the lcd screen after a photo is taken. The view on the screen is normal when you are framing the photo but after you take the shot the playback of that scene has these grayish horizontal lines and the image color is washed out. Changing the batteries and the cf card makes no difference and loading the photos on Adobe Photoshop shows the same problem on the computer screen. This just started yesterday after we downloaded a bunch of photos from the camera

Horizontal lines OK, we fixed the black screen and black pictures, but I'm still getting a strong pattern of horizontal lines in my pics. Pictures shot with manual setting adjustments are better than those on automatic, and the lines don't show too much with a strong flash (but if the flash is too strong then the image is washed out). Is this fixable? Or is my camera dying? ~Ange
