screen problems

i have a canon t3 and when i video tape or have the screen on for not a long period of time the screen gets thick grey and red lines. do you know whats wrong and the cost

Hi John,

Thanks for your questions.

That is an internal problem with the hardware and it's not a good thing.

If it is interfering with your ability to use your camera, you'll have to get it repaired by an authorized Canon repair center or replace the camera.

It's not the answer you were hoping for, but that's the situation.

The Canon t3 just celebrated its 5th birthday and, in the technology environment of digital cameras, that is old.

I can only guess that the repair would be a few hundred dollars. The only way to know for sure is to send it away to a repair center.

I am lucky. I have a Canon repair center only 60 miles away from my house. I participate in the "Canon Professional Services" program because I can't stand for any equipment that is not working perfectly. That's just my attitude.

I've had two lenses and a camera body serviced and it was really quick.

If you do decide to get a new Canon body, you will absolutely love the improvement in video shooting and focusing with the new Canon bodies over the Canon t3. It is still a good camera-you can still buy new ones at very affordable prices now that they are "older."

Good Luck
Please let me know how you make out with your issue
