Canon A430 - horizontal lines

\015 My Canon A430 has developed a problem with Horizontal Lines and bad exposure, much as reported in: "http://www.fixya.com/support/t2811345-horizontal_lines_bad_exposure_in_pics" However, a UK Canon repair centre has told me there are no recognised faults against the A430 that will be repaired free of charge unless under warranty. They have quoted \302\24389 minimum repair fee (without inspecting the camera).Yet this fault is repairable free of charge on other models.Can you advise whom I should contact at Canon to ask for a free repair for what is surely a common design problem?Thanks.\015

Answers :

Tend to agree with you that it's a common design problem for the A430, but it's a very different issue than CCD failure mentioned in you referenced article.

\015\012Please see this Fixya post instead of the one that you mention above. Unfortunately, Canon has yet to officially recognize this A430 specific problem. But if you reference this Fixya post, (include a link), when contacting Canon (if in US, email is [email protected]. You'll have to research www.canon.com to find an equivalent UK email contact), who knows you might get lucky

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off. Thanks, Steve
