Question about Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera

1 Answer

DISPLAY WEIRDNESS- AND MORE?

Just after erasing all images, I aimed camera for a shot and saw the image was streaky-blurry- distorted but there. The Canon logo opens perfectly well on the the display, so do the icons. The view through the lens looks ok. There later was flashing light (the on/off light.) and some small red icon on the display. I took one shot- it acted normal, but have yet to download it to my computer to see results. Clues?

Sanyo Xacti CA6EX shows just steaky, blurry image


Sounds tasty! ;)

Just kidding. What kind of stReaky images is it recording? Is the problem that you are using it in bad light (eg indoors at night)? It could just be camera shake.

Make sure that your camera is in auto mode and try again - if it was in a slow shutter speed mode, then this could be more of a problem. Also try using flash, if you camera has one.

Canon has recognized that the IXUS400\S400 camera had two manufacturing defects. One is a memory card error and the other is the CCD image sensor which can cause the LCD screen to act dysfunctional. Contact Canon. They will fix these issues for free. Even if the camera is out of factory warranty.
