A CCD is the Charged Coupling Device. It is the IC chip that scans image from the lens into binary data so that it can be stored onto your memory card. Sometimes they can have different results in light because they are photo senstive and can burn out. That is why it's very important never to shoot pictures in direct sunlight with these unless you have a filter becuase the direct sunlight can burn out the CCD unit.

Horitonzal lines We sent the camera back to canon thinking it had the ccd problem and it would be under warranty for that. They said the repair bill would be $100 and that it wasn't the ccd problem, but they wouldn't tell us what the repair would be for, so we had them send it back to us, unrepaired. Do you have any insight? From all that I read, we do have a ccd issue, but I'm not an expert.

DSC P51 Trying to decide whether my camera is suffering from the defective CCD imager problem. I currently have a black image at all times, as if the shutter is closed. I removed the MS and reset the camera which didn't affect anything. On the Sony site it says to take a movie clip with sound then replay it. When I did that, it didn't replay the image and I heard no sound either. Does hearing no sound still constitute a prob with the CCD imager?
