Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Blurred picture I've been using canon powershot A85 for about 8 months.For the first 5 months i had no problems.Then i stopped using it for about 2 months coz there was no necessity(i removed the batteries and kept it carefully).When i took it yester day, and tried to take photos the picture was blurred.When viewing through the LCD before taking the picture it looks very clear.But after pressing the shutter the photo taken looks blurred and when i view it playback mode again it was blurred.But the video is working fine(clear) with no problem.I changed the batteries also and checked.No improvement.Tried different modes too.Other than video for all the other moder the picture is blurred.Can you please help me?

This Service Notice will update Canon U.S.A., Inc.'s previous CCD Image Sensor Advisory, dated October 6, 2005. It has come to our attention that the vendor-supplied CCD image sensor used in certain Canon digital cameras and digital video camcorders may cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all. While reports of this malfunction have been rare in the United States, we have determined that it may occur if the product is exposed to hot and humid environments. Notice of Additional Affected Products: As a result of our continuing investigation of this malfunction, we have determined that the 11 models listed below, in addition to the 16 models listed in our Service Notice concerning this malfunction, dated October 6, 2005, may be affected. Affected products: - Camcorders: ZR60, ZR65 MC, ZR70 MC, ZR80, ZR85, ZR90, ELURA 40 MC, ELURA 50 - Digital Cameras A60, A70, A75, A300, A310, S230, SD100, SD110, A40(*), A80(*), A85(*), A95(*), S1 IS(*), S60(*), S200(*), S330(*), S400(*), S410(*), S500(*) *Models added as of Oct.31, 2006 Malfunction: It has been confirmed that the connecting parts of the internal wiring of the CCD used in affected products may become disconnected, especially if the affected products are stored or used in high-temperature and high-humidity environments. If this occurs, the signal is not output from the CCD normally in Shooting Mode, which may cause a distorted image or the absence of an image. This malfunction can be confirmed on the LCD monitor screen during shooting. The same malfunction also appears on the recorded image. Canon's Response: Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, the products listed above exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if Canon determines that the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair. U.S. residents are kindly directed to contact the Canon Customer Support Center for further assistance at 1-800-828-4040. Support hours are Monday thru Friday - 8:00 AM to 12:00 midnight; and Saturday 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM (all times EST). Alternatively, if electronic support is preferred, please send your email to [email protected] This information is for residents of the United States of America and Puerto Rico only.

My Canon Powershot A470 picture output is blurred horizontally by a white stripe and when in the outdoor you cant see any image but a white

i have the same problem here. had it first in 2009 just about 8 months after purchase but had it fixed under warranty. It took them about 4 months to return my cam. they still have to send it to malaysia( im from philippines).

Now, 2 years later, it's back to the old problem. probably this has to do with the model considering that i saw lots of similar complaints

Your image sensor might be faulty. It is what connects your LCD and the picture in the issue of the horizontal lines. have it checked. Try checking your aperture too.

Canon SD1000 blurred pictures and blurred LCD, Camera wont focus! please help ive had it for 2 weeks

The best chance to use your SD1000 is to set to picture, push ISO (on top of the func. set ring) and set to hi. This works pretty well. Do not bother sending any camera to Canon, they charge the "standard charge" plus for all their manufacturing problems on all Canon cameras. Definately the worst customer service on the market.

Blurred pictures

Batteries don't play a role in it. Maybe it has slow focus. Try to push the shooting button to only half of its full push, wait a while until it focuses an then shoot by full press on the shoot button. You can also check if you have not switched on macro settings (flower in frame). If you do, turn it off.

Blurred picture

Sounds like you may have a condensation problem inside the camera - best way to check is to open up any card or battery compartments etc. and put it in a warm place like an airing cupboard (not in direct sunlight or on a heater) for a day or so and see if it makes any difference. If this doesn't solve the problem then please ask again and we can look for other possible solutions. Hope this helps :)
