Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera ?
I have grey lines and a grey dot on the bottom of the screen. Can it be fixed?
Sounds to me like there is a problem with the image sensor. Unfortunately, the image sensor is an important part of the camera and it probably wouldn't be economical to get that repaired. If it is still under warranty, that will most definitely be covered. Otherwise, I would seek out a replacement unit.

My Olympus Evolt slr 500 is showing 4 rows (up and down) of 4 green dots in each row. Suddenly this started occurring and when I take a picture, it shows the shot and thumbnail on the memory card, however when I look at the bigger picture it shows half of the picture and the rest is grey. I've tried different memory cards and it does the same. I think the green dots are the issue. What can I do to fix this?

Screen damage? no problems in two years until today after shooting several "best shot" in monochrome, then returning to regular shooting position in color. no drops ever and only gentle usage. I turned it off and put camera away, then on turning it back on, the LED screen displays one-third solid white, one-third grey and only one third (bottom) of actual image. it also has an odd black "lips" image across the middle of top half. various colored lines across the bright part.

When I look at a picture from my D60, a thin red vertical line appears from about the middle of the photo down to the bottom in every picture. I swapped lenses and it still appears, so I think it's in the camera itself??? Any idea what would cause this, and if it can be fixed? Thank you!

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.

My Cannon Power shot SX120 is less than a year old, I havent dropped or otherwise abused it. One moment the camera was fine, the next moment it has really bad horizontal lines in the pictures. The closer you zoom the worse the lines are. The lines cover the entire picture from top to bottom. I have tried replacing the batteries with fresh ones, even tried a different memory card..nothing seems to help.

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

Lines I am getting lines on my pictures. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem? I went through the diagnostic testing. That went fine. I reset all settings. I took the batteries out and the memory card for a half hour and put them back in. None of this worked. The best i can explaing is there horizpntal lines through the pictures. Any ideas??? My warranty is long expired. Just wonder if it's worth getting fixed or would it be better to purchase a new camera.
