This could be a bad sensor. Did you expose it to any laser light?

Sounds like you might be in luck. These symptoms sound very much like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Pentax ist d keeps saying delete after each picture i take before picture is shown


You can try to reset camera settings to default from the menu.
And fimware update could help if the software causes the problem.

SD card write protection lock also should be off.

There is no view on the screen and it is blank ie black. What could be the problem? The camera is still very new.


Check whether the camera takes pictures. Try shooting a picture and download to PC. If that is fine, then your lcd is bad. You need to replace lcd. Buy a used one sold for parts from Ebay and remove the lcd from the old one and replace in your camera. Only tool you need is a jewellers screw driver set for $1 from Dollar store.

I have a Westinghouse SK-32H240S 32" flat screen


First when tapping changes the picture you have somewhere a bad connection; in electrical board or wiring.
When the screen goes blank after a while means some capacitor is bad/old.

It's likely something wrong with your camera.
You may do the following test:
Try to format your card (warning: everything will be wiped) and then take some more pictures.
If the problem persists, then you probably need to take it to a service center.

LCD BLACK


When you say you can view pictures. Do you mean you can view them on the lcd on the camera itself or on your computer? It sounds like the CCD chip went bad most likely. If its not under warranty I would consider purchasing a new camera.
Thank you,

1/3 of picture becomes partially scrambled


sounds like you have a frame fold-over fault, does banging the tv have any effect (slightly bang the set on the sides), if it does then its more than likely a dry joint, check all around the frame output chip, hope this is of some help to you
