Hello

Thank you for using FixyA!!!

To address the problem. It seems that the problem you are experiencing is a faulty CCD.

The CCD of the camera is the sensor type it uses. A CCD camera converts optical brightness into electrical amplitude signals using charge coupled device (CCD) image sensor. If this device is faulty, people will complain about the photos being overexposed in daylight, with a purple haze.

If this is the problem you are experiencing, the repair cost will most likely cost you more than just to replace the unit,

If i misunderstood the problem, please be so kind to let me know so that we can have a look.

Kind regards

Hello!

Unfortunately it sounds like you have a bad CCD on your A75. You can try calling Canon to see if it is under the CCD recall. The recall is over, but Canon allegedly has still been accepting customer's cameras for the recall.

Good luck!
