Hi,



I have a Canon sd400 (Ixus 50) two monthsago...

I never had a problem, but yesterday in the Video Mode (all resolutions) the LCD screens shows a Blue PIXEL (similar to dead pixel), and when I see the video recorded, allways shows the Blue Pixel.

When I use the Optical Zoom, the blue Pixel doesn't move, but when I use the Digital Zoom the pixel moves to the right and goes out of screen.

Has anyone's this problem?.

Help me please!.

I have a problem pixel on my 20d which shows up as pink on darker images. It is a faulty pixel on your cameras ccd. Zooming optically will still show the pixel because you are still using the full ccd whereas zooming digitally the pixel will move off the back lcd as you are in effect using a smaller more central part of the ccd. If your camera is still under warranty you can send it in for a remap. I'm just going to live with mine for a while. It's very small on an 8mp camera and it's not a massive task to clone out the spot in photoshop. edit: I take it the blue dot moves to the center as you choose a larger image size? You will probably notice it in photo mode nearer to the centre if you zoom into images using an image editor[img]/forums/images/emoticons/shakehead.gif[/img]

That means something's wrong with the CCD and nothing wrong with the LCD. The best thing to do is to get Canon to fix or replace your camera if it's under warranty.
