Question about Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera
Hi, I can take a shot using my Canon A80, but I always get blurry picture full of horizontal red stripes. Strangely, I can do movie recording without any problem. I have spent hours changing all the setup, but the problem still persist.
Canon techinician said that it is not CCD image problem, since I can clearly see the scene on my LCD and viewfinder. I've tried to search on the Internet, but found no solution. Any idea on how to solve it? Thank you so much, and I really appreciate it..
I don't know what you told that technician, but try this. Download some of your pictures and videos to your computer. If the downloaded pictures look fine on your computer, then the technician was right, and it's probably just a loose LCD ribbon cable connection.
BUT if the downloaded pictures also look blurry with stripes, then it's probably a faulty 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. BUT MAKE SURE you tell the technician this time that it is showing up on your DOWNLOADED pictures. I recommend trying again, and hope for a more knowledgeable tech on the line this time. Please check the following two links for more info:
