Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon A85 has stopped shooting

I have really loved this camera and have not had a problem for the 2 years I have had it. However...it has stopped shooting pics. The zoom and focus seem to work fine, everything seems to work normally but the actual shutter button will not respond. I have tried a different memory card and replaced with new batteries and reset to factory settings. I am very hesitant to send it in for repair afraid it will cost more than a new one to get fixed. Any suggestions?

The A85 has had problems with the operations deck assy which contains the primary controls that the customer uses to operate the camera. If this is the problem, the part is approx. $60 from Canon, I am not sure what they charge for labor to replace the bad component. Good Luck to you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Blank LCD works but wont display


I have a Canon powershot A85 camera, and it works fine, but I get no picture in the LCD screen. It does take pictures and I can look at the pictures after I have taken them. I don't know if you live in Australia, if you do ring Canon on 131383. A lot of Canon camera's and also a lot of other digital camera's all have a problem with the CCD Chip. My brother has a Canon A75, he has had is for many years, and they fixed it free of charge, because it is a problem the camera has, so not something we done. Look on the internet and you will find a lot of info on it, also that it will be fixed free of charge. I also found the same information on a lot of other digital camera's, so ring Canon and find out, I hope this helps you. Kind Regards Marion

Dead Canon A75


A complete camera failure is usually caused by a power problem. Naturally, after checking the batteries, you should inspect the metal battery terminals inside the battery compartment. Also, many cameras (including the Canon A-series) have a memory card door with a safety interlock lever (power switch) that is engaged only when the door is completely closed. Finally, I have learned (from a Canon camera forum at Digital Camera Resource) that there is a small fuse soldered to an internal circuit board that sometimes fails for no apparent reason with several different "A" series Canon digital cameras. The fuse story, with photos for those brave enough to void their warranty and open up the camera, begins inside this thread, "Canon powershot A85 spare part needed!!!" at this web link: http://www.dcresource.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18151 You'll need to read a couple pages down to get the entire story. Good luck.
