Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
My camera has started taking pictures that are colored pink. It seems to happen with the flash. The entire photo has a pink-colored tint, while bright objects are completely pink. I have had the camera 3 years and have been very satisfied with it, and this just started. Any help much appreciated.
Hi, I had the same problem with the Canon A70.It turned pink and when aimed at bright light, the picture turns bright. I called up the Canon service centre and they told me that the problem was with the processing of the image and the connector. They told me to bring to the centre and the repair is free of charge despite no more warranty left. My advise is to bring it to the repair centre.

No its not the flash, it is the CCD. The replacement of the CCD will solve the problem.

Tips for a great answer:
The batteries may need replacement. Somedigital
to function when their battery power is low, but produce grainy
photos with incorrect coloration. Make sure you aren't using Ni-Cd
rechargeable batteries, which are generally not recommended for
2. For the best picture quality, make sure the camera is set to its highest resolution. This may have been adjusted by accident. The process for doing this varies greatly among different digital cameras. Keep in mind that fewer photos will fit in the camera's memory and it will probably take longer to transfer them to the computer, at a higher resolution.
3. Digital photography tends to be more prone to blurring (caused by slight movement of the camera while the photo is taken) than 35mm film, especially with very small or lightweight digital cameras. To remedy this, try using a tripod and/or the camera's timer, if it has one. Adjust the camera's shutter speed if possible.
4. If colors are too pale, using an image editing/viewing program (such as PictureWorks MediaCenter) to increase the Saturation level may be helpful. If the camera has produced colors which are entirely wrong (everything is in shades of black and purple, for example), you can turn the saturation all the way down so that it becomes a black & white photo.
5. The lens may need cleaning. Make sure you use a cleaning material which will not scratch the lens. If possible, refer to its manual for specific cleaning instructions
