Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
I mixed the batteries - 2 rechargable to other. Now the camera has lost all its functions. can still take 1 shot, but cannot view there are ligths flashing the menu wont come up etc etc. Have i broken the camera for good? the screen is normal when u turn on but as soon as u take a pic - I get 1/600 and F2/8 on bottom of screen and loads of green boxes over the display. The zoom does not work and neither can you scroll through the pics
Could be that the non-rechargeable batteries are blocking current from the rechargeable ones. Either get all rechargeable and charge them AT LEAST 14 hours before using, or use all alkaline - fresh. If the same display happens it could be a defective CCD which is being replaced FREE by Canon. Go here for details: http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html
