Question about Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera

1 Answer

When the lcd is turned away from camera, everything backwards/upsidedown?

I've had this camera for about 3 or so years and have had random problems with it but in time they all went away. yesterday, however, I noticed that whenever I flip the lcd screen away from the camera it gives me a backwards and upsidedown image. it's very irritating and is there any way I can fix it by myself so I don't have to ship it away? thanks

    It's designed to stick to the surface of glass tube CRT monitors via three suckers. This does present problems for LCD monitors as the pressure required to make the suckers adhere could damage the flexible sandwich that makes up an LCD panel and more damage could be caused when attempting to remove the calibrator. Of course, ColorVision has designed the Spyder hardware to be LCD-friendly. Instead of using the suckers, an LCD adapter is attached to the calibrator, which prevents the suckers from gaining purchase and a special filter for use with LCD displays is also incorporated. The calibrator is simply left to hang in front of the monitor, without any danger of damaging it. IB

Sony DSC-W320 says "no space on memory card" even though it's completely empty


The problem most likely is caused because you are deleting EVERYTHING. Next time, instead of deleting everything, format the card in the camera instead.

1. The best thing to do is to factory reset the camera to be sure everything
is in the default setting. Look in the manual or menu to RESET the camera.
2. If this does not work, you can try is to remove the battery and wait a day,
then put the battery into the camera again and recheck.
3. If that does not help either, your camera might need repair/maintenance.

Hello, I have a canon rebel xti. It's about 4 years old and up until this point has worked perfectly. However, currently on a trip in Europe and when I went to shoot this morning, I can only capture...


currently on a trip in Europe and when I went to shoot this morning, I can only capture 1/3 of the area I'm shooting. That is everything in the lower 2/3 of the screen is black. I've tried a couple of lenses with no avail. Viewing previous pics is not a problem, so this is obviously not a screen problem. I'm thinking something with the mirrors? Any suggestionns

Wont power on


Its probably a lens issue. Grim and dirt get stuck int he lense. Just blow it out... shake it out.... hold the lens while it shuts off and try to wiggle it out... turn the camera upsidedown when you turn it on and tapp it gently.. :o) mine did the same thing. :o)

Image saves as random purple/ green patterns


Your CCD chip in the camera is defective. There is a lot of information on the web regarding this phenomenon. Here's a link to much of that info, http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1128958202.html
Note that the info is getting a little outdated now, as this problem has been identified and rectified. It only appeared in cameras that are now about six years old.

Canon Rebel XT dial only advances one direction


I have not seen this on that model or any of the other similar models of Canon.

You have done everything I would recommend. Esp with you updating the firmware, I really think you have a hardware problem.

I would contact Canon. They do have Auth repair centers or you can contact them and send it in to the Canon factory, it depends on the repair. I just had lens repaired on my 40d, and I sent it in to CA, and it only took about 10 days.

Good luck, it sucks when something like that goes bad.

My Kodak V530 is able to turn on,but all black in LCD


Mine was doing about the same thing. Take the battery out. Take the 4 screws off where you can get to the screen from the inside. Get the back off where you can get to the screen connection. Press on the connection to make sure they are seated well and put it back together. It worked for me.
