SOURCE: Blurry picture on Canon A80

I don't know what you told that technician, but try this. Download some of your pictures and videos to your computer. If the downloaded pictures look fine on your computer, then the technician was right, and it's probably just a loose LCD ribbon cable connection.

BUT if the downloaded pictures also look blurry with stripes, then it's probably a faulty CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. BUT MAKE SURE you tell the technician this time that it is showing up on your DOWNLOADED pictures. I recommend trying again, and hope for a more knowledgeable tech on the line this time. Please check the following two links for more info:

SOURCE: Canon A80 CCD problem or something else?

Open the camera, look at the Flat-cable going from the CCD to the 'camera HW', there is a small connector where the latch mecanism is open,-meaning it does not put pressure on the commenctors and if you touch the flat-cable you can see the flicker/lines, simply use a pen tip to lock the connector latch again, or apply som glue to fix the connector.

SOURCE: blurred image on LCD registered when pic is taken

CHECK The memory chip to see if the picture is blurred too.


I think that is over a hundred dollars to repair. call canon and see what they say. but for that much money, you may want to trade up to some newer technologies. many great changes have come true since your model.

Screen all fuzzy when taking photo.


What you have is a CCD issue. The CCD is the part of the camera that captures the images and stores it to the card. When the CCD goes bad it does some pretty funky things, including blurry, fuzzy or other weird things when they go bad.

Here is a link to an eBay auction with a CCD on it.
