Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
Dear Camera Experts,
I have an A85 and one day while I wanted to capture pics, I noticed that the display window showed blurry images and when viewing images through the LCD screen - the picture showed a steak of different colors and was jittery.
I thought the display was going on me and when I reviewed previously captured images (on my CF card), they appear fine in the LCD display.
Unfortunately the camera is out of warranty and when I brought it to a photo shop, they told me that the typical cost of fixing is not worth the repair - "buy a new one". I think that's just a sales person working hard for his commission.
Right now, the camera display is blank (black screen) with the camera usual icons displayed (red eye, SL, etc.). I don't think it's the LCD dispay and have a feeling that the issue lies inside - Lens?
Thanks for your help in advance.
