Question about Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The images my camera captures are black in two opposite corners covering most of the image, except one diagonal band. I bought it over a year ago and it worked good until this happened.

It sounds like your view screen is going bad. They do wear out. Are the pictures okay when you download them?

No image is captured by the screen itself (LCD screen works but completely dark).


Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.

Laptop image is opposite when you capture images


Hi,

Look at the settings of your camera Application and look for Mirror Image and put a check on it to get the exact image captured instead of having the image as the opposite when taking pictures or recording a video.

If not Mirro Image there should be an option for flip image horozontal and flip vertical, you just need to put a check on the Flip horizontal image or Mirro Image this depends on the Brand and the application as well of the Laptop this should correct the camera settings.

Most laptop cameras are now using a different format and needs to be set up on the application to get the mirror image of the snap shot or recorder video as what you are expecting.

I hope this helps.

The CCD image sensor of the camera has failed. It is the component responsible for capturing the image the camera is focussed on, display it on the screen and capture it. If its malfunctioning you are bound to see problems like these. Getting the imagesensor replaced should resolve the problem

Black screen except for diagonal bar of image across middle of screen


Do the icons appear around the image? If so, maybe the front lens shutters are stuck?
