Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
The camera zoom is not working. nor am i able to scroll the pictures taken. the camera however is taking pictures in default settings. its just not allowing to delete or scroll pictures taken. neither am i able to change the settings by using any of the control buttons. so when the camera is directed towards an objected it sets the focus and flash (depending upon the light)and then one can take the picture. am at a complete loss as to what to do with the camera. seems like the camera is under some kind of a "lock". would be a great favour if someone could help me with a solution. regards, mrig
My A 85 developed the same problem as you wrote today. The camera was purchased in March 2005. I checked the guarantee card that states there is a 24 month guarantee period excluding the normal exceptions, ie. water sand extreme heat etc.As you wrote it seemed to revert to a default mode.However, with the computer software it is possible to edit, delete and format the memory card. If I get any joy from the service center listed on the guarantee card I will post details.

Tips for a great answer:
The scrolling wheel around the four-way controller is ideal for moving through images at different rates. Turn it aggressively and the display switches to several shots on the screen at once, which works surprisingly well in moving through a full memory card.
Pushing the zoom lever right magnifies the image in stages, up to 10x. Moving in the other direction offers two levels of thumbnail views followed by an 'event index' that organizes photos based on time and date taken.
