Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
I've had my canon powershot A85 for four years now, but it's been the BEST camera! Till recently. When I turn on the camera it's fine, but after I take a photo the photo is pink, blury, with tiny white horizontal lines on it. Does this sound like the defective CCD imager? or sensory problem? When I called canon they said they would fix it for free if it was the sensory problem but if not it would cost me 80 dollars. HELP.
No this definitely sounds like symptoms of a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 200a/300a/400/450/500
And even if it's determined not to be a CCD sensor problem, just tell them to send it back unrepaired. The A85 is a nice camera, but my goodness you can almost get a good new camera these days for $80.
