Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannon PowerShot A85

Camera monitor does not display image in picture-taking mode. Camera will take pictures but will not capture any image. Monitor will display past pictures on memory card just fine. Essentially, it appears that the lens does not register any image to the camera.

    I have Canon Powershot A85 Camera and it was working fine when I last used in Novemeber. Now when i wanted to use, its not working. Display is coming blank and we are not able to take photo. A Camera repair person told that its CCD problem. I bought this camera in August 2004. I want to know whether Canon will replace CCD for free ?

This sounds like it might be 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:

Hi,
It is known problem of ccd imager chip failure in Canon A85 camera and ccd imager chip will be replaced by local camera repair shop to solve this issue.
Since camera wont show live view/ blank screen so same gets saved as picture in memory card that is why no picture/ image in playback either.
Hope these info will help you.

Lcd monitor


On a DSLR (digital single lens reflex) like your Rebel, the shutter remains closed until you actually take a picture. The camera cannot display an image on the LCD since there is no way to preview one that has not been captured.

Powershot S1 IS trouble shooting in images of lcd monitor


Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.
