Question about Canon Cameras

5 Answers

Hello, My Canon A610 is not focusing anymore. Seems the sensor is dead or can't see anything. Otherwise I can play pictures from card but it doesn't take any picture because there is no signal from the sensor. Can be fixed? Thank you very much. Kind regards, Radu M: 07872834832

Just remove the screws and try to clean the lens and other parts properly ....because mostly dust accumulation causes this kind of problems .......if this did not work you just need to replace the sensor .....

It can be fixed, yes. But in my opinion, it would be simply cheaper to buy a new camera altogether..

Yes it can be fixed, however, this is a job for a camera tech. You may want to get an estimate, sometimes it's easier and cheaper to get a new camera.

Yes this can be fixed but you will have to send it in for service,

Do you still have warranty - in that case you should contact your dealer or canon directly.


If not here are a few places I can recommend.

No. The A610 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Blank screen on Canon A610 Power Shot. Can't view pictures taken or from memory card.


Are the downloaded pictures also black when viewed on your computer? If so, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Camera has a black LED screen when in the shooting mode. If a picture is taken it also is black. Previous pictures can still be viewed from the memory stix.


probably ur sensor is dead or there is dirt and moisture accumulation over ur sensor.... it is a mechanical cover and the dirt-moisture ghlue is preventing it from opening and stimulating the sensor. take it to prf repairer and get the dirt removed.

i had the same problem with my POWERSHOT A610

Canon Powershot a610 dropped, lens stuck half way, won't move, gives E18 whenever one puts it in the mode to take a picture, no view through lens. Is the camera toast?


Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.

Images have pink overlay


I had the same problem with my camera, suddenly the LCD and picture shows some pink image overlay bands on the top usually. When focusing the bands sometimes disappear. But they always shows on image as on the LCD. Canon seems to fix this problem as goodwill (guarantee is not valid anymore) so I sent my camera to service for this. Hope they accept this otherwise it is broken, LCD common problem. (Solution or same problem we will see)

LCD screen stays dark


I have the same problem and very frustrating! The camera turns on by won't show anything (totally black) in the camera mode. The menu still works. If I take a picture the display is black and shows black for it in the display mode model as well. Tried everything that I can think of but nothing helped. (Taking out the batteries and reinstalling, switching the mode from display to camera and back, stepping through each mode option, stepping through each menu options). The last option worked once but won't work later on. From this forum this seems to be a common problem with this camera. Guess won't buy another camera from Canon any more. I bought a camera (non-digitals SLR) from Canon before and was very happy with it for over 20 years. Thought Canon had the right thing in camera. This problem made me think twice when I buy another camera in the future. Perhap Canon is not as good as I thought. By not fixing the known problem, they are ruining their reputation.

The CCD ribbon cable probably came loose, you will probably have to send it to Canon, This happened to my A70, and there was a recall on the CCD design, they replaced it for free, they might do the same for you.

LCD black in shooting mode only


Defective CCD. Just happened with our A610 as well. Oddly enough just had our Canon ZR85 camcorder repaired about 1 month ago (for free) due to this same problem. Sounds like Canon isn't as forthcoming with the A610 tho. We called today and they said $100+ to repair or replace, but the following link seem to indicate that if you're persistent you can get them to fix for free. Now the battle begins ...
