    I have a canon powershot A95 - 2.5yrs old and I am facing this problem now. The images taken already and seen in the display are fine. The images that I shoot now are completely blurred and I can see only blurred patches both through the LCD and in the captured image. I suspect some lens damage as the last time I had used it was to capture smoke from live frie. Any help in resolving this is appreciated.

    I have the same problem. If i try and take a photo it just comes up as a blur, although mine will still take videos for some reason.

    I have the same problem. My camera was working fine and then one day, the screen is all distorted. I can view pictures already taken but now camera is useless.

I found the same fault, but for me it is intermittent. I have tried all sorts of things to clear it, but the best seems to be leave it turned off for a while. I bought my Ixus 400 in Sept 03 and the fault started in Jun 07. It shows already taken pictures with no problem on review on the LED screen, but the screen blurs (with motion) and records that same blurred image.

I have a Nikon D60 camera. Switched it on today and there is no image in the LED display when I try to take a picture, the screen is black.


That's normal for the D60. It works the same way SLRs have worked for half a century: you view and compose through the optical viewfinder, then snap the picture. The D60 lacks the Live View feature of more recent dSLRs; the LCD (not LED) display on the back is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures after you've taken them. It is not for composing and framing your pictures.

Ccd error


Sounds like your 'preview' feature has been turned off in your camera settings. With the camera turned 'on,' press: "Menu," then press the joystick button until you reach the pencil, which is your, "Custom Setting Menu." Then press down on your joystick to reach, "Image Review." Now press the joystick to the right to select, "Image Review," and press up on the joystick to get to, "Image Review On," and then press, "OK." If that doesn't do it, please let us know.
