\015 When I upload the pictures to my computer, some come out with wide lines and/or dark shadowed lines across. Some are cut off mid way. I tried a new memory card and am still getting the same problem. HELP\015

There was an issue with some of the A650 IS cameras that bright light or sunshine could sometimes enter the case and create such symptoms as you're describing:

\015\012Although your camera is not an A650, recommend contacting Canon, especially if your camera is less than a year old, to have it repaired under warranty service. Even if older, recommend contacting Canon anyways to argue free repair if your symptoms match that of the above link. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.

I've recently noticed a wide dark horizontal line approx 1/4 of the way down from the top of my screen display. The camera is kept in my home office, has not been dropped, gotten wet or exposed to extreme temps or humidity. The still photos come out fine but the videos I take have the line going through them. I played with it this evening and notice that the line moves down to about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom of the screen when I press the shutter in picture mode and stays there while

My daughter's Canon IXUS 100IS is only a few months old and she's very careful with it, but suddenly now you turn it on and the screen is mostly dark with a few plaid red, green, yellow lines and you can see very subtle shadows when you aim at any shape. The display screen is not working. DOes that mean the pictures won't take? And how can I fix it?

Dark pictures I have a Canon EOS REbel T2 with the standard 28-90 lens. It had been working fine, but now my pictures are (almost all) coming out very dark and grainy. Further, I note that if I turn the camera 90 degrees to that a "portrait" picture -- 6" tall and 4" wide, I see a dark rectangle in the picture in the bottom right quadrant. I always set the camera to full program (the green rectangle). I have been using Fuji 400 speed file of late. Do you have any idea what I"m doing wrong?


Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure. ... Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera

I have a Fuji FinePix A330 camera and when I try to take a picture in the light, daylight or lamp light, lines appear through the picture. Sometimes fine lines but other times like a burst of light. This just started happening recently. But when I take a picture in the dark with the flash the photo turns out fine. Any answer as to what caused this? Thanks

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

Hi Merry XMas! I have a problem with my camera lately and it seems like a software problem not sure.

Wavy lines I have a first year digital rebel using the 18-55mm lense that came with it. Whenever I shoot a photo of a home, the siding and the roof lines are wavy. Also when taking interior photos, using the pop up flast, my pictures seem to turn out a little dark.
