Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

1 Answer

All functions work except taking the picture

The camera will power "on". The display screen works, the zoom works, the focus works. The only problem is that it won't actually snap the picture. Memory card is in the camera and isn't full.

Bad CCD or CCD circuit board. Try getting a quote for CCD repair or buy another used A85.

Focus on Ricoh R6


Could be that the electrical connector on the autofocus has come off. This is a job for a repairer.

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.

I have a Sony DSC-W50 Cybershot camera that won't take pictures or videos anymore. It powers up fine and the screen works, but when I hold down the shutter button all the way, it focuses and nothing more.

Out of focus on any zoom, poor quality unless flash is used.


Try this...place the camera on a hard surface or a tripod....snap a few pics at various zoom levels. Are the pictures better? If so, the problem is you....you're moving the camera without realizing it but when you use the flash, it freezes the picture because of it's extremely fast speed.

Camedia C-5050 zoom won't take pics


Is your memory full? Does the camera attampt to focus when you push the button down 1/2 way? If not the mode dial may be faulty (you are not in picture taking mode) or the shutter button may be faulty (no focus attempt) Try to use the timer button to get the shutter to trip.

I can turn my camera on then the screen picture is all blurry and it won't do anything if you press the button as if to take the picture. The one thing i have noticed different is the letters [CAF] in the...


When the camera is set to C-AF (Continuous Auto Focus) mode the focus is continually aligned according to movement of subject or the camera even when shutter button is not pressed. The Continuous Auto Focus (C-AF) is disabled while the camera is zooming in and out. Once the camera stops zooming the CAF is initiated and the cameras focus is adjusted.
This is actually used for video.

Zoom Error


try to manually adjust the zoom. My camera is doing the same thing. sometimes I can get it to focus after forcing the camera to zoom in and out a few times. No one well let me know how to get hold of a repair manual to adjust this, but when I figure it out I will post it.

Out of focus


Sounds like the camera is trying to focus if you hear sound when pressing the shutter halfway down or zooming. If the noise is a scraping or grinding sound, you might have debris stuck between the cracks of the lens and the camera body. This happened to me after i dropped my canon sd550 on the beach just once and it never recovered. Next to water sand has got to be one of a camera's worse enemy. Also, the lens might be cocked a bit which would prevent the camera from focusing and zooming smoothly. Try gently adjusting the the lens. Sometimes the slightest imperfection in the lens will throw everything off. Good luck!
