Firmware update
go to canon.com and search for your camera then download the firmware update and install it while the cam is connected via USB

I just turned on my ps3 and it was zoomed in really far and no matter what i did, display settings or video setting nothing fixed it.


it must be your tv settings. as far as i know, the ps3 wont do that. if it did i wouldn't think there is an easy fix. on your tv remote is there a button that you can change the display setting? say, from full screen to zoom? usually named "wide" "view" "theater" if so then you need to make sure its set to full screen mode. keep changing the display option and you should see a better picture. if there isn't a button, go into the menu settings, the picture or display settings and change it there.
hope that helps

Camera turns on but an image does not appear - just a blank scree


you can cycle the display to off, on and an info screen. look for the display control on the back of the camera..it may be in the menu on the a85, but it's designed to turn off the display for certain situations. If you cycle thru and the display still doesn't work, you may have a larger issue and and A85 doesn't hold alot of value for repair... check your display setting first...

Auto zooming on power up, intermittent problem


Possibly a intermittent connection in the control buttons or the ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) connector from the controls to the main PCB.
Take it in for servicing, they will do a trial by substitution (swap out control) and lubricate the connector.
There isn't really anything you can do to fix with this sort of problem.

Cheers.

Canon PowerShot G2 buttons don't work


You have a bad button board . This is a single board with a series of small button switches that control all these functions. Most repair shop will charge around 75.00 to fix.

All functions work except taking the picture


Bad CCD or CCD circuit board. Try getting a quote for CCD repair or buy another used A85.

Camera froze up w/ no button function


hello, these units have a very fine zoom switch and can get damaged by a drop or fine sand. the zoom switch sits under the actual button. if you turn the camera on in camera mode and the display is showing the zoom on screen display then you know it is the switch.

Card not initialized


Kyle850. I have a fujifilm finepix camera myself, and just recently had the same problem. The camera worked fine until one day I turned it on to take a picture and there was the "card not initialized" message. To fix the problem, just turn on your camera, push the menu button and use the right/left arrow buttons near the zoom button in the top left corner of the camera. Push the right arrow button until you come to the "option" window in the camera's view finder and use the "up" function of the zoom to highlight the "set-up" window. Press "ok", and use the right arrow button scoll over to the "2" tab and press the ok button again. Then use the "up/down" function of the zoom button to scroll down to the "format" tab. Press ok button again and use the "left" button near the zoom in and out button to highlight the "ok" option in the format window. By pressing the ok button here, it will reformat and reinitialize your picture card. If you do have pics already on your pic card, you may want to take your pic card to a photo center and see about recovering these pics before you go through the reformat process because there is a good chance that when you reformat your pic disk any pics on it will be gone. Good luck. SG

The SMART ZOOM is not working - doesnt either come up in SET UP menu?


I fixed my problem myself. Simply read the top of the camera1.gif where it says TO USE SMART ZOOM SET IMAGE SIZE TO LESS THAN 2.8M
Then go to the very bottom button on your camera (there are three) and press it and reset your image size.Then your zoom will work.
Problem solved.
