Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
When I take a photo, all is fine on the screen but when the photo is in playback mode so I may check the photo, red and purple lines appear across the screen. I still see these red and purple lines when I download the pictures also. Canon support have told me this sounds like a common problem. Does anyone know of this problem ?
Yup, it is a common problem. The shutter is jammed. I bet outside pictures are really overexposed. The horizontal lines are caused by the electronic noise created by the shutter solenoid trying to move the shutter. If the cameraq is no longer under warranty- Sometimes, you can free up the shutter by banging the camera in a hard surface like a desk or table. (Do this carefully, don't get carried away) If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the whole lens unit. this is best if the warranty is still good.
