Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Power shot a 85 controls and zoom not working

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. regards, mrig

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.

As soon as i switch on it gets it gets locked in P mode with some little zoom and fixed settings. i would like to start clicking straight away> How do I adjust the settings.


The scrolling wheel around the four-way controller is ideal for moving through images at different rates. Turn it aggressively and the display switches to several shots on the screen at once, which works surprisingly well in moving through a full memory card.

Pushing the zoom lever right magnifies the image in stages, up to 10x. Moving in the other direction offers two levels of thumbnail views followed by an 'event index' that organizes photos based on time and date taken.

Once u zoom into the picture that is very far away how do u keep the picture zoomed in after u snap the shot ...


Once you've framed your shot (zoomed in) and taken the picture. That's it, the picture you've taken is the one in your view finder, and that's the way its kept.

However, if you want to zoom in further, you can using the software you were provided with your camera, you can, you can also zoom in using your camera menu. Once happy you can then save the edited picture. But this time its a digital zoom and it will reduce the resolution. The picture won't look quite as fine. It will be a balance between picture quality and the extent you want to zoom in.

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.

This may be noise due to picture(s) taken indoors, or out, in low light. This camera is not the best in low light and the flash is only good to about 12 ft.

TZ stands for Travel Zoom, meaning for mainly Travel outdoor senery shots where large Zoom is also handy. Read manual for lower light indoor/night shots.

If this error message appears, turn off the camera and remove the batteries for 30 seconds. Afterwards, reinsert the batteries and turn the camera back on. Perform a manual reset of the camera. Once you perform this it will be back to factory settings and you will lose any pictures stored on your camera.
