The camera zoom is not working. nor am i able to scroll the pictures taken.
the camera however is taking pictures in default settings. its just not allowing to delete or scroll pictures taken. neither am i able to change the settings by using any of the control buttons.
so when the camera is directed towards an objected it sets the focus and flash (depending upon the light)and then one can take the picture.
am at a complete loss as to what to do with the camera. seems like the camera is under some kind of a "lock".
would be a great favour if someone could help me with a solution.
My A 85 developed the same problem as you wrote today. The camera was purchased in March 2005. I checked the guarantee card that states there is a 24 month guarantee period excluding the normal exceptions, ie. water sand extreme heat etc.As you wrote it seemed to revert to a default mode.However, with the computer software it is possible to edit, delete and format the memory card. If I get any joy from the service center listed on the guarantee card I will post details.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

In the camera menu, there should be a setting for "review" to allow you to set the number of seconds the picture remains on the screen. Also, you can always review the pictures you've taken by pressing the review button on the camera...it's usually a button with an arrow that points to the right.
you defiently have something wrong in the settings so don't worry its not wrecked check your settings check your zoom, and if that doesn't fix it take it to someone that knows alot about cameras so goodluck:) and please rate this solution...

hi have you tried removing the battery for couple of hours so it can reset any settings that need to be set back to default it only resets camera memory not settings you have changed but this can sometimes solve the problem your having.
Also when you switch camera on and then press zoom when the camera switches off does the lense go back inside the camera as normal or does it reamin out.
when you switch in on do all the other buttons work like can you take picture and can you access all the menu if you can then take it off auto if its on auto then see if this let you use zoom if not then the chances are their is a fault on the zoom button either jammed could be that the lense motor has come out of line with zoom button, is the display clear when you go to take picture without adjusting the zoom is it still possible to take pictures
Hey, i have had the same problem for over a year. My camera also wasn't briefly showing me the pictures i took right after taking the picture like it used to. Last night i found the "Quick View" function was turned off in the menu (up arrow) of the camera, so i turned it back on. Today i tried the zoom function (i haven't tried it in a year) and IT WORKED!! So i think they are linked somehow.
So try going to your menu (up arrow) then scroll down until it goes to the next page of the menu. Select "Quick View" and turn it on. Then your zoom might work. It worked for me, but i don't know if mine is an isolated incedent.
you can look through all menu to see if default setting is present. if not set up this way.
look through menu 1 hit the arrow keys or ger to next....any ways set Iso to auto.
focus to auto
flash = auto
metering to multipoint
most important see if shutter speed has an auto or set to 1/8 second or 1/1000th
hope this helps you ...but your going to have to read the manual some day.
Digital Zoom is best ignored in any camera it simply blows up a section of an image already taken, You can do that far better with an image editor in the computer.
As for the Optical Zoom - it does indeed seem to be repair time- As it is only a year and half old- may be Canin will be sympathetic and offer a cheap swap out.
