Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White objects appear pink

I have a Canon Powershot A95 that is two years old. A month ago some photos started to have a pink tint on objects that are white, off-white, or light-colored (such as my skin or a wall). Sometimes it's just one object, sometimes it doesn't happen, and sometimes the entire image is distorted with pink or completely obliterated by the pink tones. The outdoors on a cloudy day is especially bad. I tried resetting to the default settings and don't have a custom white balance. It happens less if the flash is manually turned off, but then the photos are blurry. Red-eye off makes it worse.

Hi Sunil. The problem with your Canon A95 is quite common on cameras of 4 or 5 years ago. The repair is quite expensive, as the main imaging chip (CCD) has absorbed some moisture over time. There is more in-depth information here: http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

Purple line on top of the CCD and pink lines on photos

Contact Canon at 1-800-828-4040 and they will fix it.

I had a similar problem and it turns out to be a known problem with the CCD chip in the camara. Contact Canon and they will give you instructions to return the Camera including shipping labels. They will cover the cost of the repair regardless of the warrantee status and they are quick. You pay shipping one way.

The only issue i have is that the problem has returned a year later and I have to send it back. But I calledCanon and they said they would cover it.
