Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pink/purple melting effect

When I take the first 1 or pics of the day/event, the pics comes out with a pinkish haze. Usually it it also makes a pink/purplish melting effect on half of the picture. It looks like whatever I'm taking a picture of is in an pinkish ice cave or something..

It prints out that way also.

Please help.

Thanks!

The camera took great pictures then all of a sudden the screen appears as a purple haze -- and the pictures come out as just a purple blurry haze. Adjusting brightness doesn't work. Yet, the shutt


If the LCD displays correctly on previous photos then the problem is more than likely a CCD or associated ribbon connector failure due to moisture/condensation or age/misuse. Good luck with finding a replacement part!

Camera takes pictures with pinkish sheets layers,sometimes melted


Melted shadowed and blurred pinkish pictures are symptom of defective CCD sensor.

The CCD sensor is the devices that captures light to generate picture. In your camera this part is faulty and must be replaced.
