Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Inverted image problem

When powering on my Canon PowerShot A 85, the LCD image is reversed and inverted, and all the icons around the screen are upside down and reversed, in the opposite corner to where they should be. When trying to shoot, the image is displayed upside down. when viewing pictures stored on the card, they are also upside down. I hope someone can throw some light on this problem. Thanks! Phillo

    It seems that there's something sensitive to pressure inside, in the area near the bottom right corner of the LCD window. When pressing there, the image rights itself. Since doing that, it hasn't recurred. So I sounds like a fault as you say.

    It is over two years old, so yes, time for a new one!

    Thanks for your help.

Has this just happened or has it always been like this? There appears to be a a fault in the main board and only replacement will cure- So may be if the camera is more than a year or so old- time for a new one. Meanwhile do speak to the Canon Tech Support on the Web site. And whilst the matter is still not resolved ,shoot holding the camera upside down- seriously - tell me what happens.

No image is available to view on the lcd screen canon ixus85is

Click the "disp" button. The display of the camera has been turned off in the LCD screen but you can still use the viewfinder, this functionality is just for those who prefer to use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen.

I can see the menu and icons on the LCD screen,

Hi,
It is known problem of ccd imager failure in S3IS Canon camera and ccd imager chip will be replaced to get live view to take fresh picture.
Local camera repair shop will repair camera by replacing ccd imager chip because camera will take apart and soldering work is also involve so its not likely novice fix.
Thanks.

Camera giving invertd image.

The camera displays an inverted image on the LCD camera screen or when you view the image on windows vista? If it is Vista what program are you using to view the image? If it is the camera check the settings on the camera for the special effects settings and see if the image inversion setting is on. Ther could also be a problem with the LCD display on the camera.

Inverted image

All images in astronomical telescopes are upside down and reversed-- this is normal. There is no up or down in space. Reversing the image just adds more GLASS to the light path.

Samsung D900i Screen image sometimes reversed. Screen goes blank and image moves randomly

Hi
I can tell you how to solve the reversed image. With the camera running look on the side of phone where the up/down volume keys are. If you press up button you will notice image on screen change. I think the down button inverts the image? Up or down this should correct your inverted image problem.
With regards to people experiencing lines and blacked out screens this appears to be a phone fault.
