I got this camera at Christmas of 2007 after my A350 died. Love the camera and I got the 2 year warranty this time. :-) The only thing that is going wrong with the camera is that sometimes when I take photos, there will be a dark 'blur' on the lower right of the photo. It is there when I am shooting in macro mode and normal mode. Sometimes when I zoom in and then back out, it disappears, sometimes it doesn't.
It appears both on the LCD screen and in the photos. It's enough to just bug me. Most of the time I can crop it out of the photos, but this is a (fairly) new, expensive camera. I've cleaned the lens with a micro fiber cloth and an alcohol prep pad. I've left the battery go dead and charged it.
It is almost like a piece of dust somehow got in under the lens or something. Help!

I love that camera. There are several possiblities, If you are using the pop up built-in flash with a telephoto lens or a lens hood you'll get a shadow in your photos ususally at the bottom of landscape oriented shots. If you are using a flash unit attached it may have something interfering with the strobe possibly or it is turned. We have the same camera and have had the shadow issue in the past. The pop up just won't work if something is wrong with the "bulb" the only other thing is that is isn't going all the way up, check that also.
1) The camera store screwed up, and your photos are just fine. Have you looked at the photo files on your computer?
2) You accidentally set the camera into manual mode and with settings that don't work for the light. How do the photos look when you preview them on the camera?
3) This is the most likely problem: It sounds like you have accidentally set the "exposure compensation" value. This setting is used to help correct the exposure when shooting a scene that should be mostly white (e.g. in the snow, or bright sand at the beach) because otherwise the camera will make the scene be "medium gray". Check your user manual for instructions on how to set the exposure compensation and make sure it is set to 0.
If your photos are too dark when viewed on the computer and the preview screen, and EV is set to 0, then your camera may have a faulty light meter. If so, you need to send it in for repair under the warranty, or return it to the place of purchase as defective and see if they will exchange it for you.
I suggest you find a tripod and use "No Flash" as the reason the pictures are blurry is usually the camera moved. I love the no flash option, but since the shutter stays open so much longer, a tripod is almost a necessity.
Defective ccd imager!! company will replace this ccd imager free of charge. Year 2002 up to 2005 released unit has a factry defect ccd imager. the company recalled these unit and replaced with a stronger version of ccd imager( they are still doing it). check it out.
I have had a similar problem. Pictureres look like they are taken through a Venetial blind with white horizontal bands though I did get one with dark banding. It appears to have something to do with light levels. I took a few pics in a dark area with no flash and now it is working again...until it quits working again. Perhaps it is something to do with light level calibration? Whatever it is the problem is internal. If you are still under warranty, I highly recommend taking your camera in for repairs/replacement. Ours started acting up just after the warranty expired so no love for us.
