Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photos are dark and have small lines going through them

I have had my camera for about 3 years and have had no problem with it. I took some pictures yesterday which were fine. Today I took a couple of pictures and they are dark and have very fine horizontal lines running through them. How can I fix this? Thank you.

    The recommended link refers to the LCD screen. I don't know about the author above, but my problem occurs even when I download the pictures to my computer. The lines run all through the picture, but are most "choppy" along the edges (of course, they're horizontal if the picture's facing one way, vertical if it's facing the other way). I've had mine just about 3 years also. Haven't experienced the darkness problem.

Sometimes fine lines but other times like a burst of light. This just started happening recently. But when I take a picture in the dark with the flash the photo turns out fine. Any answer as to what caused this? Thanks

Dark lines in background of picture its a sony cybershot dsc-s750


I think your camera chip is dying soon. Try taking a photo on a blank sheet of paper, black and white, see if there are lines. If there is, it shows that the camera chip is defective...

LCD display stays dark and it will not take photos.


Say bye-bye to your CCD. They do go bad after a certain period of time. My recommendation is get a quote for replacement repair or buy another used A85. Hope this helps.

White lines when you take photos in light, but perfect in the dark


The problem lies in you camera's CCD unit which is located on the back of the lens held on be 3 small screws it could also be a setting in the camera's menu try going into the menu and reseting the camera to default it works some times if that does not work than you need the ccd replaced pretty easy fix I fixed 1 with the same problem about two weeks ago for someone it happens I hope this helps you out.

Download dark photos


If you want to post the EXIF data to show what the settings of the camera were when you took the picture, that would help. But a guess would be that when you took them, the lighting was not enough for the fStop and Aperture settings.
