Question about Canon PowerShot A60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Problem with display being white...but!

If I select photo mode I have a white screen and if I try to take a photo camera appears to take shot, but there is no flash even in conditions where it obviously need the extra light. However if I switch to display photo's already taken, then the photo is just a black screen. The display works if I scroll back to previously taken pictures on memory card and are displayed perfectly. I swapped memory cards and with same result! New batteries had no effect on this problem and camera has not taken a knock and is always treated with the greatest respect. btw until now I have been very happy with the performance of this remarkable little digital camera

    Thx t00nz... very helpful! Contacted H Lehman Limited (Canon Repair Agent) at Stoke on Trent, and as you say CCD had gone. They are fixing it free of charge and will send it back to me in Devon. Camera must be 3-4 years old and as you say guarantee no problem. Cheers again, Regards Grim

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:

I can't view my pictures after the shot,it very blerr


I'm not sure if you are talking about the quick view of a picture just taken, or using playback mode to view shots taken. Either way, I suggest changing batteries so they are fresh.
There are 3 different LCD choices when in "Shooting Mode."
Press "DISP."
The display mode will change each time you press this button.
1- Standard (no info displayed, just pic)
2- Detailed (infor displayed)
3- Off
If you have tried this, then you may want to perform a reset to the cam. This will reset any screen/LCD settings that may have been changed.
Goto the Setup Menu and select "Reset All." Select "OK" and press "Func. Set."
This reset WILL NOT reset the following:
-Current Shooting Mode
-Date/Time, Language, & Video System settings
-White Balance Data (of you have custom settings changed in the custom white calance function)

Is my Camera broken?????


Try a transfer to a computer or whatever you usually do with the media to determine if the photos themselves are affected or if it is just the camera display. If the photos look ok then we will know that it is the display and you could just live with it. I know of no way to repair the display cheaper than replacing the camera in most cases. If the photos are off in color it may be the settings in tha camera. Try to return to default settings (usually an option) or fiddling with them (usually set at zero or the center of a slide)

Hey marafioti14,
What you need to do is select shooting mode and then under that you need to select program mode, and under program menu you need to select the color mode which should allow you to set the camera to take black and white photographs. This being said I would suggest instead of shooting the images in black and white it would be better to convert them to black and white using computer software. It is likely that the software that came with the camera allows you to convert any image to black and white. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

When takining photos all the shot recently appear with a blue tinge. Before taking a photo, the screen displays the following; 'P' left hand top right corner. light bulb left hand side and along the bottom...


You are in Program mode most likely, with some sort of white balance setting that is not sunlight. Go into menu and try to change back to auto mode,or reset all or default. Sometimes removing the battery for 12 hours gets it back into default mode. the HQ is just the resolution that it is shooting in.

How do you know it is not your camera's display screen. Download pics to computer to verify. If you do not have a computer, take mem card to a retail photo Kiosk or counter; walmart, drugstores, etc.

If they are still white after reading card, and a pick file exists, then it is probably the Record Mode, pic taking mode, of the camera that is defective, of some setting out of whack.

Try removing the cam battery and reinstall after a 10 sec waiting time. This will reset the camera and put setting back to DEFAULT mfg settings.

White lines


defective image processor. use in continuous mode, but take only 1 shot. may not be expensive to fix. not user serviceable, and not something you can't live with if you can take images in cont mode.
consider having it evaluated by the factory and getting a quote for repair if it bothers you not being able to shoot in single shot mode.
nikon does seem to have more trouble than most in their non-premium products.
good luck
