Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera
Hello, This sounds like a firmware error. The firmware is a basic software-hardware interface that will instruct the camera's hardware components on how to run based on the user's requests. If this is corrupted (remember, it's still a software component) some camera functions woun't work properly because the firmware can't adress the corresponding hardware components. If this had been a hardware problem, it would have been with the ccd sensor but in this situations the pictures would have come out in the same colors and with the same problems. I would suggest you take the camera to a generic "camera service" center, the smaller ones are cheaper, and ask them for a diagnostic, eventually a firmware update. They could fix your camera for a pretty small fee. I'm sorry I can't provide an easy fix for this. Good luck.
