Hello, Your Canon A85 has problem of bad CCD Imager Sensor and this part will be replace to view live picture. Canon has scheme to repair free of cost such problem in A85 model. Please check details to obtain free of cost repair at Canon CCD Advisory. Thank you.
CCD sensor fault : playback fine but no image in capture mode. Replace the sensor. Canon repairs thse faults free of charge but you need to find out what their policy is with A85. As I said this is a classic : I get + - 5 A85s every week with this particular fault.
Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.
Yup, it is a common problem.
The shutter is jammed. I bet outside pictures are really overexposed.
The horizontal lines are caused by the electronic noise created by the shutter solenoid trying to move the shutter.
If the cameraq is no longer under warranty-
Sometimes, you can free up the shutter by banging the camera in a hard surface like a desk or table. (Do this carefully, don't get carried away)
If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the whole lens unit. this is best if the warranty is still good.
What mode is the camera in? is it in "Auto" at the top there is a dial switch it to auto and press button halfway (shutter button) when you press the button halfway the camera will beep and display a square box on the LCD. If the camera beeps once and the box is orange it could not focus and you need to retry pressing halfway again. When it is in focus it will beep 2 times and it will show a GREEN box. This is the indication it could focus on the subject correctly. Its a machine and sometimes it takes it a bit for it to figure out what your wanting it to do. Its the nature of the unit
