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

No image on LCD screen, only irregular lines of varied coloring. When picture is snapped, it is of these lines--no image. Help. Details: I turned the camera to shooting mode but it does not display the image of what I want to shoot, but just a series of horizontal lines. If I take the shot, it shows the lines which were displayed on the LCD screen. If switched to playback mode, previously shot images show up fine. I checked the batteries; they were fine. I replaced them anyway, to no avai

I've recently noticed a wide dark horizontal line approx 1/4 of the way down from the top of my screen display.

I own a Canon GL2 Video Camcorder. While in the Camera Position, it appears on the view screen two horizontal white lines, one on top (1/4" from the top) and the other on the bottom of the screen about 1/4" from the bottom. Even though it does not affect the end result. It makes it very difficult to film as the lines don't allow me to center (align properly) the subject I want to film. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.
