Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My canon A95 comes on and goes off after few seconds.

I change the batteries of my camara and after that notice that it comes on and goes off after few seconds and E18 appear.

    I switched the camera on and after a few seconds the lens goes back in, the screen displays E18 and the camera then switches of.



    I think I have overcome the problem by holding the lens firmly and giving it a god shake which seems to have freed it up and for the time being at least it is now working again.



    Is there a place where one can oil/grease or clean to prevent this happening again?

Try to reset your camera using a command in the set up menu. An error message followed by turning itself off, usually means lens jam. Replace the lens.

Screen streaky & longditudal flashing across then goes black looking at pictures taken are ok & are clear camara has not been dropped unable to take a pictur now


The sensor array has gone bad. It will bave to be sent back to Canon for service since that is a major repair. You should consider the A480 as a replacement camera. The A480 is a little over $100 and is going to be cheaper than repairing your A95, plus the A480 will have better resolution and picture quality. It will not use you adapter lenses, if you have any.

Delay Between Flash and Taking Photo


I also have this problem on a Canon A85. For some reason setting the camera to landscape allows the shutter and flash to work together properly.

Canon A95 "Change Batteries" problem!


I have this problem as well. I thought it was a problem with my NiMH batteries. So, I bought a volt meter to make sure the batteries worked. I have 8 AA NiMH batteries. I charged them all up and tested them with the volt meter. They were all good to go. However, no matter what I put in the camera one of two things happens:
1. I get the "change batteries" message.
2. I don't get the message, but the next time I check the camera (a few days later), one of them is totally drained.
Something is very wrong and I plan on contacting Canon.

Camara won't come on


It could be the batteries. To be sure about it, try your batteries in another appropriate appliance. Good luck!

Lens problem


If you've replaced the batteries with fresh ones, it probably has a broken zoom assembly. It'll have to be replaced by a repair shop.
