Question about Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cant see anything on screen!?!?

About 1 or 2 years ago my parnts bought an A80 and it has been a really good camera ever since. But recently we have found that the LCD screen wont show anything but the settings and the menu's. ive tried taking it apart to see if one of the wires have come out or something similar to that but it all seems to complicated for me to work out whats wrong with it. Please can you help???

    I have two Canon cameras one Digital Power Shot A80 and a Video Camcorder pal MV600, both display coloured streaks in the LCD display when in "shoot mode" and display something similar when played back. We took good care of both of these cameras! This is just for information. In the meantime I am going to track down the nearest (Spanish) Canon repair centre.

take out the batteries , push the reset button, then put batteries back and try again.

If still not working properly , then it probably should go back to Olympus, if you bought it a few years ago , its probably out of warranty.

You can buy a newer model like the vn-6200-pc , which has way more memory and more features for much much less then it will cost to repair the vn-100 or vn-2000 , f

If it's under warranty and the camera doesn't have any sign of abuse and you have the warranty card for it then it should be free for you to get it fixed. I don't see why not. If the service center asks where you got the camera from tell them it was a gift and you're not sure. Then they can't blame you! :) Good luck!!

Vertical lines obscuring image


The matrix is dead. Probably because of an intensive light got into the lense while the camera was in night mode. It's dead. Nothing can be done.

LCD screen broken from being dropped - just a black splodge!


Replacement parts for digital cameras are hard to come by. even if you could find one, the electrical connections inside the camera is more problematic. the best suggestion is to take it to a camera shop and see how much the repair cost would be, (probably over $100). if you do not want to invest that in a repair, there are some really good digital cameras out there for about the same price as the repair. If you want to try finding an LCD screen for your camera, try Camera Repair Japan, CRJ, located in Duluth, GA, phone # 770-849-0555. Good luck.
