Question about Cameras

4 Answers

Can't see pictures on display screen after picture is taken. Also can't see pitures after hooked up to the computer. The model is powershot A85. #8822135874 The viewer screen is blurry and photos have been coming out blurry also. I tried turning it on and off several times, and this seems to have worked- for the time being. It has been working- on and off for the last few weeks. Not sure if this is a permanent solution. This camera is also 4 years old..

The optics may have a problem, I think you will have to send the camera in for service.

Pictures has lines and blotches. The display has them and when the pictures are taken they look like the display. If you view photos taken previously they are ok, so I figure the LCD is ok.

Blank LCD works but wont display


I have a Canon powershot A85 camera, and it works fine, but I get no picture in the LCD screen. It does take pictures and I can look at the pictures after I have taken them. I don't know if you live in Australia, if you do ring Canon on 131383. A lot of Canon camera's and also a lot of other digital camera's all have a problem with the CCD Chip. My brother has a Canon A75, he has had is for many years, and they fixed it free of charge, because it is a problem the camera has, so not something we done. Look on the internet and you will find a lot of info on it, also that it will be fixed free of charge. I also found the same information on a lot of other digital camera's, so ring Canon and find out, I hope this helps you. Kind Regards Marion
