Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Re No image at all. Almost like a cover is on the...

Hi, many thanks for your help, it's really appreciated!

I just want to clarify a couple of things

In recording / shooting mode, there is no image in the LCD screen and if used through viewfinder still no image (when a photo is taken and looked at afterwards), just a black screen as a resulting picture.

When viewing previous photos on the LCD screen (prior to the problem), that works fine.

If you still think that this is the CCD imager, then do you know whether the remedy from canon has a global reach as I'm in the UK. If I call Canon UK, will the same pledge apply - free to fix and outbound / inbound delivery costs are paid for?

Thanks again. Have a great day

Yep,
That sounds like a failed CCD. Canon will fix this for you for free, even in the UK :-)

Hi

Sorry to hear about your issue with the Olympus mju 770 SW. There's a couple of things you can check and try, before thinking about a repair or binning the camera and getting a new model.

1. Check the contacts on the battery are clean?

2. Clean the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment are clean?

3. Is the charger actually charging the battery? Try another battery or see if you can test the existing battery with a multi-meter to check there is some power in it.

It is fairly common for chargers to fail, so it's worth checking out but don't go spending money on a new charger unless you know it will fix your problem.

Hope this helps

David

Will not auto focus


There is a switch on the top of the camera that has your focus modes. switch to C-AF for Continuous auto focus. If you have it set to MF - Manual Focus that would explain this easily.

Canon rebel, digital EOS


Welcome to the world of Digital SLRs.
There is nothing wrong with the camera. This is how an slr camera works. you don't get to compose the image on the display, you do it through the view finder. you then get to see the image a short time after it's taken. the duration can be changed in the settings.
you then press the right arrow button. one above dustbin on left. to see all the pictures you've take.

hope this has clarified things for you.

Zoombrowser not working- not able to download RAW images to computer


Make sure you turned the camera on. Could be a bad cable. Best thing to get is a usb card reader. Some people report problems of bent pins because of removing and reinserting them in the camera. So be careful there. Re-Install the software that came with it from Canon. Or you can download it from CanonUSA. URL below.
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=314&modelid=14256

choose your OS and download what you need. 
Looks like ZoomBrowser is up to 6.1 now.

Picture Error!!


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

To your concern, a couple of things you can try:
  • use a memory card reader (instead of direct digicam);
  • use a file recovery software (either camera or card reader) such as GetDataBack.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Setting up Pentax Optio 50 to be webcam


When I was using a video camera as a web cam using Netmeeting, I found out a few things which may help. Once the connection is made, the settings from the other end play a part in the reproduction at your end. I.E. the image you are seeing at your end once connected to someone is actually their image, not yours. So what is really wrong is that their image is not appearing on your screan. Also, the size that they have selected controls the size of your displayed image etc. Have you tried connecting to other people or only one. The problem may be at the other end.
