Problem with image

My camera Canon powershot A-85,when I take still picture and playback the image,it comes in blur and pink colour.while taking picture image is OK in LCD screen.There is no such problem in video mode

  • Anonymous Dec 23, 2007

    I have the Cannon Powershot 85 and when I look through the view finder it is blurry. I took it to a Ritz Camera shop and they told me the sensor was bad and that I needed a new camera or it would be a $180 to fix it. When you take a picture the picture is blurry and pink in color as I read on other problems on this posting page. Can anyone confirm that this is the issue on this camera?

What mode is the camera in? is it in "Auto" at the top there is a dial switch it to auto and press button halfway (shutter button) when you press the button halfway the camera will beep and display a square box on the LCD. If the camera beeps once and the box is orange it could not focus and you need to retry pressing halfway again. When it is in focus it will beep 2 times and it will show a GREEN box. This is the indication it could focus on the subject correctly. Its a machine and sometimes it takes it a bit for it to figure out what your wanting it to do. Its the nature of the unit

CANON POWERSHOT A95

Obviously it's a mass Canon A95 issue, it's the same as "pink blur LCD" question which has around 10 people with the same problem, and there's also "purple LCD line" question which refers to the same. Just this website has around 20 of us who posted in August. Unfortunately not a single reply.
