Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX120 IS Digital Camera ?

I have lines, both vertical and horizantal across my screen. How can I fix this?



Answers :

This is usually either a broken lcd screen or the ccd sensor, if you can see the menu clearly then it's more likely the ccd sensor but if every menu looks like that with the lines, it's more likely the lcd screen. If you need help with a Powershot, the place that specializes in service for these is www.camerasandparts.com They are really reasonably priced and their work is superb. Hope that helps, that's the place if you need some help with a Powershot. I hope you can get it fixed, that's a great camera like most all Canon Powershots are. good luck
