Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
My Canon A85 suddenly stopped powering on. I removed the CF card and it power on and functions perfectly until I re-insert the CF. With any of several CF cards inserted, no power on. With no CF inserted, camera is fine.
I think we can rule out a problem with the cards, which leaves the camera. maybe one of the cf pins is bent?? look into the slot with a light and check for any pins out of line, if you find any, see if you gently push it back into place. I saw the exact same problem, having the same fix. try also connecting AC through a cable and the camera to the computer, see if it makes any change. Whats your warranty status? use it if you still got it, if not, get a repair estimate. Hope it works out
