Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My camera says "read error" when trying to view pics

When I took a picture with my Fujifilm Finepix J10 camera, I tried to view it, and it said "read error" and then went to the main screen that says Fujifilm. Then after about 30 seconds the screen would go black, but the lens would stay out. The only time the lens would move after that would be when I would take out the battery pack then press the on button, but the lens would go in then out again, and stay out. Now it's been about 5 days since it first broke, and the lens finally went in, but now it just won't turn on at all! I have no idea what's wrong!
Plus the battery pack is fully charged!

You might as well replace the camera, they do not fix these. If you send it in to Fuji you get an exchange camera from Fuji, the cost is fairly high

SOURCE: Canon G5 Lens error message

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

SOURCE: fujifilm finepix a350

This is a common problem with this camera and it needs to be sent back to Fuji for repair.I've been through it three times and then they replaced the A350 with an A400 and now I'm having the same problems with the A400.
They want to swap it with a E500.
Both of these replacements are less of a camera then the A350.
If they won't repair it under warranty I suggest you stay away from Fuji cameras in the future,I know I will never buy one again

SOURCE: Lens won't close.

I just found the culprit causing my camera to do the same. Under the battery door there is a post that hits a switch. That switch needs to be activated when the door is closed in order for it to work. Safety feature to allow someone not to put in a SD card while camera is on.

SOURCE: My Canon PowerShot SD1000 shoots completely black

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

I have a J10 fujifilm camera and it currently has an error message: FRAME NO. FULL! I have the following picture card: Fujifilm xD xD-Picture Card M1GB Any advice would be appreciated.


Try formatting the memory card. If that doesn't work, try a different memory card. If that doesn't help, sadly, it's probably time to return the camera if it's still under warranty.

Good luck!

You need to clean some space to your card by uploading the pics to a computer or deleting them from the card. Or you can buy a new card.
