Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
My camera worked perfectly up until recently. Last time i turned it on the display screen is purple with black and white lines al over it, when ever i take a picture or try to make a film it only saves an image of the purple with white and black lines. This doesnt appear to be a display problem as these are the images that come up when i load the card into my computer.
I have reformatted the memory card and changed the batteries and am now at a loss.
Sounds like a defective CCD imager. You may be in luck. Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. Please check the following two links for more info:
