Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera ?

A80 and MV600 display coloured streaks


\015 Hello \015\012I have two Canon cameras one Digital Power Shot A80 and a Video Camcorder pal MV600, both display coloured streaks in the LCD display when in "shoot mode" and display something similar when played back. We took good care of both of these cameras! This is just for information. In the meantime I am going to track down the nearest (Spanish) Canon repair centre, however for the benefit of others and incase you have comments I am keeping this problem open on your forum. Keep up the good work.\015\012John\015

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take. If i look through the lens and take the image, i am still able to view the picture I had taken if i set the camera on the view pictures. The mixture of colours on the LCD only shows when the camera is set on take the picture... and it doesn't even do it always. Thanks.
