Question about Canon PowerShot A60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Screen Line There seems to be a line running horizontal in the viewfinder which is more noticeable outdoors in bright light. It causes a slight blur across the middle of the viewfinder. Is this normal or a defect? Thanks.

Re: Screen Line

I don't think that this is a defect. I own an A60 and there is an horizontal line running through my viewfinder. I use my LCD screen more often then my viewfinder, so I've never seen the blur. However I'm pretty sure that your camera is fine.

My sanyo vpc-s670r digital camera has a blurred shot. how can i fix this problem? i also clean the lens still blurred especially when shotting outdoor.


You must take pictures gently. Blur picture may occur if you move during capturing a picture. Or your hand move too fast after taking a picture. Try to stay still for two or three second after push the capture button.
Blur picture when shooting outdoor can be caused by too much light. Don't forget to set your camera in outdoor or panorama mode, and turn of the flash light if you think its too bright.

Hope this help and RATE please !

Horizontal lines and blurred pics.---- when seen in scren pics are clear but as soon as u click it either becomes blurred or shows horizontal lines. sometimes i find blank. i wud like to know the reason...


Hi!
It's a lens shutter problem. There are usually two causes - a broken shutter cable (it moves inside the lens as you zoom - as the lens move) or stuck shutter blades - if wet or something adhesive got in. If the shutter doesn't work, the camera cannot control the amount of light taken, so the pictures if taken in normal or bright conditions are very bright and have horizontal lines. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. Both problems are considered hard to repair and could end up with changing of the shutter or lens. It should be an expensive repair so I would just get another camera.

Sorry for the bad news, but I hope it will help you!

Sony DSC-V1 optical viewfinder has a horizontal line in it


It shouldn't be there, but as the optical viewfinder is completely separate from the photographic light path it's nothing to worry about either.

Normally it's caused by either a hair or fibre which has somehow entered the viewfinder (rare) or more commonly by a fine scratch across the front window to the viewfinder. Also check the rear viewfinder viewing lens as the same damage could occur there but as that lens is relatively protected it's unlikely.

Any further fixing involves dismantling the DSC-V1 and possibly sourcing spares made of purest unobtanium so if the camera works perfectly well then leave the screwdrivers safely in the toolbox for now.

Problems with viewfinder


My 40D cannot start up. There is no response when I push the On/Off button. It remains the same after changing to the full-charged battery which came with the camera.
Thanks for your help.

The image is getting blurred


Hi

The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting
movies.)

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.

Very Bright Outdoor Photos with lines


The shutter is stuck. The electronic "noise" created by the solenoid trying to move the shutter blades causes the lines on your pictures. The bright outdoor pictures is due to the fact that the shutter is jammed open. You can try tapping the camera on the sides and bottom. This may jar the baldes loose. Failing that, you will have to find a shop that can obtain a replacement lens assembly for your camera.
