Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it or particles wedged in preventing the lens from opening, hence, no camera use.

There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Hi! i have a cannon ixus digital camera. It got wet about a year ago when i was at the beach, now the problem is every things okay except when i capture a photo nothing appears on the screen no image at...


Try and press the display button (on Ixus a square with a right pointing arrow) several times to see if your images appear at any time.

Your problem may be as simple as inadvertenly pressing this button into the off mode.

If that does not work, try to recharge your battery, reinsert it and turn the camera on again to test your LCD screen.

Since you haven't descibed any error codes coming up on your camera, I suppose it isn't that bad.

If this does not help you may have to get your camera repaired.

Good luck

The images apprear purple on the screen, and dark in patches. New photo's taken, come out purple. But existing photo's appear on the screen as, normal.


Hi,

If the previously captured images are appearing fine in the Camera, then the issue is with the CCD Image Sensor unit only. Check if the display icons are appearing normally on the Camera screen.

Try power resetting and Factory resetting the Camera to check if the issue can be resolved:
Power reset:
Remove the batteries from the Camera.
Press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds.
Then, reinsert the batteries after 1 minute.
Factory reset;
To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.

Home-->Settings-->Main Settings 1-->Initialize-->OK

Photos are "whited" out, like a burned out image in the center


Did you point it at the Sun?
I think you have burned out the CCD/CMOS sensor.
The display wont have been affected.

If its not insured for accidental damage, its a bin job!

Light displays on screen but no image


Can you see images taken earlier from memory in view mode ?
Can you access the menu and see it displayed on the screen ?
If yes to both, then your CCD sensor most likely is defekt.

No DIY recommended.

LCD show purple or violet cast on white areas when using auto mode


Have you tried viewing the photos on a computer or printing them? There should also be parts of the menu/setting displays that would be white. The text on the image info should be in white.
If you are getting white, it would suggest your whitebalance isn't set correctly. If everything has a purple tint to it, check your LCD display settings, otherwise it may be the screen is failing.

Canon a85 problem


Could be that the non-rechargeable batteries are blocking current from the rechargeable ones. Either get all rechargeable and charge them AT LEAST 14 hours before using, or use all alkaline - fresh. If the same display happens it could be a defective CCD which is being replaced FREE by Canon. Go here for details: http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html
