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

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Note that the info is getting a little outdated now, as this problem has been identified and rectified.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.
