A powershot A70 for me personally is worth it to be repaired, but like they said, it is not economical because it will cost you.

now the blurrish images may be caused by a bad lens or a bad focus mechanism.

usually, for others, you may try to check if the focus is set to "auto-focus" "macro" or infinite", just make sure it is on focus and the ISO settings to auto as well.

for shutter speed, put it to the fastest, if playing around with the settnigs did not work, then you go to "hardware" part of the issue.

if you have other questions just lemme know okay.

Was dropped. Now will do everything EXCEPT take photos. Lens, display, flash, etc. etc. all work fine. Just no screen image or photo when in "shoot" mode.


Sounds like the CCD or a stuck shutter blade. Try this place: www.CamerasAndParts.com They only service Canons and they are the only place we recommend for the Canons. It's all they work on and they are about half the price of most shops, plus the work is just excellent through them.

When power on blured screen apear and blured image


1. Try cleaning the lens with a soft dry cloth. Do NOT blow on the lens first. 2. You could be experiencing camera shake - if you are in shutter mode and if your shutter speed is too slow for the light available you get a blurred image.

Important Notice About Your Canon Product:

It has recently come to our attention that the vendor-supplied CCD image sensors used in this Canon digital camera may cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all. While reports of this malfunction have been rare in the United States, we have determined that it may occur if the product is exposed to hot and humid environments.
Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair.

If you go to canon.com they have the instructions on who to contact
and how to send the camera in. I haven't done it yet but will report
on when I do.
