Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lines across view screen & on pictures; looks like interferance.

I've had my camera about 5 years. It's worked fine until about a month ago. The only way to describe the problem is that it looks like static interferance on the screen. After I take the shot, the picture has fine lines on it & looks over-exposed. Any suggestions of what might be wrong? Thanks.

    My Canon Power Shot A85 is doing the same thing. I have lines across the screen and it looks like Icicles coming down from the top. Sometimes the pictures are elongated.

    The screen has static pinkish horizontal lines. When I review the image the screen displays vertical lines on the picture. I have sent an email to the canon site I will see what happens.

    I just wanted to let you guys know that I did contact Canon as you suggested & the problem was the CCD Imager Sensor. ;o) I sent the camera to Canon, they fixed it (free of charge) & now I can go back to taking clear pictures again. Thanks again for your help!

Hi,

You no need to fix this problem. This is a CCD failure and in some cases had been subject to a recall. Contact Nikon support-this may be one of the recalls and replacement camera could be on its way. They will do it for free of cost.

Thank you !!

Horizontal lines on the screen after the picture is taken


Remove the Battery from the Camera then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the Battery pack and turn on the Camera and reset it to the original factory settings by selecting the "Initialize" option under Setup1.

If the issue persists then service will be required.

PURPLE LINES SHOWING ON SCREEN WHEN ATTEMPTING TO TAKE PHOTOS


Your camera likely needs a new CCD imaging sensor. It is a cute little thing and is very expensive to replace. I've seen deals to repair any digital camera on eBay and I would check for a local repair person in your area. You can use the search on this site to see who might be close by. I have an A310 doing the same thing.

Lines and circles across all of my pictures


I'm not sure if you still look here or you've already fixed your problem but it has to do with your ram on your computer. I had this problem before. I had a really old Fuji camera but upgraded to the e550 a while ago and these weird grainy lines would still be in my pictures. At first I thought there was something wrong with the camera but after testing it on my brother/mom/dad's computer they pictures came out perfect. I found out it was my ram. Since I was using the onboard video card and it was sharing my ram. One of my cards was corrupted. So if you have more than one ram card try eahc one by itself and see if the problem persists. Hope this helps anyone out there who has this problem.
