I recently purchased the D80 and had no problems, it worked great and took magnificant shots. However, the other day I turned it on and the viewfinder was now, dark and out of focus. The battery was fully charged and the diopter adjustment failed to fix the problem. I also noted that there was a square in the upper right viewfider that was clear and in focus, just like the entire viewfinder used to be. Of note, it still takes clear, sharp, in-focus shots, it's just that the view in the viewfinde

Check the mirror. The image you see in the viewfinder comes through the lens, and is reflected by the mirror. If it's dirty, it will affect the image you see. When you take the picture, the mirror lifts up, the viewfinder image is interrupted, and ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

My Canon 5D mkI turns on ok, will focus, displays top and back, but it will not take a shot. I have two batteries, both which I have charged to full and tried (display shows full charge). I have also tried two seperate CF cards. I have tried cleaning all contacts. Still it won't take a photo. The shutter will work when I use the "clean sensor" function though. Also, I have reset all settings on the camera. Anyone know why the camera isn't firing off a shot?

Hallo, my canon powershot A420 camera shows horizontal white lines in LCD screen mostly in night shots and the day light shots appear blurred as if more light is entering and the image is not clear.

I am afraid this seems to be a hardware error in the sensor. If the image is purplish in color when blurred it is similar to my and another user's problem. He/she contacted the manufacturer and they said they can fix it for $250. I am not a repair s ... Canon PowerShot A420 Digital Camera

HI, I have a Canon Powershot TX1 which I have owned for about 2 years and have been very happy with the video. Recently, I turned it on and the lens wouldn't focus - I couldn't take any clear videos nor still shots...

Just like a computer these cameras have a motherboard I call it. It has a chip on that board that cycles to what ever mode you set this camera to and it will operate correctly. It seems yours has quit so it would need a replacement part ... Canon PowerShot TX1 Digital Camera

With camera on the AUTO setting, I can't seem to take clear, focused photos. Nearly all of them are out of focus or blurry. Does not matter if it is in the day time or at night. Also, when using the ZOOM function the photos are mostly out of focus. What can I try to take clear photos again? Thank you.

I have a Canon zoom lens EF-5 18-55mm for my Canon EOS 450D. I am having trouble with my AF. If I set it on AF it will not focus automatically, but if I manually turn the lens for a close up it will then take the picture. Then and only then will the AF for long distance shot come into operation! After taking that shot it reverts back to not focussing. What can I do, if anything, to rectify this malfunction? Cheers Geraint Evans

Is this a problem with this lens only ? Try this lens on a friend's XSI/450D or try another lens on your camera body. Try all 3 AF modes. ... Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera

When I take a picture with the Canon Rebel, it doesn't focus in the view finder, but when I look at the picture after it has been taken, it is clear and in focus. Why can't it looked focused when looking through the view finder before taking the picture?

When taking pictures at night, i find that its not that sharp and clear. that goes for the video shots as well. how do i rectify this problem. changing the modes doesn't very much. shots during the day is clear.

Night shots without flash will cause your camera to use a slower shutter speed. This can cause camera shake. To avoid this, put your camera on a tripod. Also, you can raise the ISO to a higher setting...however, too high and you'll get more digital n ... Digital Cameras

When I turn on my Canon PowerShot A75 digital camera, it has streaky pink lines. When that finally clears up,(which may take several minutes) it usually has a pink tint. If I try to take a picture, the picture is streaky or pink. Is this the problem that Canon will fix free of charge? The problem has been getting progressively worse since last year. What do you suggest?

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

Won't focus I was out shooting some sports the other day and all of a sudden my camera (D70 with a 200mm lense) would not focus and started going a little crazy. however, it would still take a shot occasionally. when i tried to change the menu, the menu itself on the monitor was jumping around and wouldnt let me select anything. then suddenly it worked again. then again, just as suddenly, it stopped working. this has never happened before and I'm at a total loss other than to take it to a dealer

There are a number of flexible circuit connectors on the bottom two circuit boards of the D70. Possibly one or more have come loose. The flex connector for the rear LCD panel is also on 1st circuit board (memory compression PCB). You may have a pro ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Negative effect. I've had my Canon Powershot S3 1S for over a year now. The other day I was taking pictures and it was working fine. I turn it off and set it down. I come back later, turn it on again and the screen shows has white lines that keep flicking over it. I turn it off and take the batteries out. Later I put the batteries back in, turn it on, and find that it is in negative effect. I'm pretty sure that my camera can't do this naturally and I've tried everything to see if I could get it

Have you tried resetting it to factory settings. if no please do it.(refer manual)but if yes please contact us again ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

I am using Canon 1000D dslr for more than 18months, it was working fine until last Sunday. I went outside and started taking few shots... it was not focusing properly (or should I say not at all!) and pictures are coming blurred. When I press the shutter button half, it should run the motor (in autofocus mode) and focus, but it is not doing anything (i.e. no red dots are coming)... what could be the problem? Thanks for any help.................

The autofocus motor could be be broken, or the lens may not be communicating correctly with the camera. One thing that can help if it's not communicating correctly is to clean the lens contacts. If you take the lens off, you should see some gold plat ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

I have a Canon Power Shot A-60 camerea. I recently replaced the lithium batteries and since that time have not been able to get a clear image on the camera screen or when it is viewed on a computer, etc. It is very faint and verticle line al all across the image.

I have a Canon Power Shot A 60 digital camera. The screen is showing a bunched up set of moving horizontal lines...take a photo and it stores that exact image as screen. What is the problem and is it able to be repaired or is it shot? Thanks!! I'll look forward to your reply.

Sorry to confirm your worst suspicions, but it's definitely shot. The ccd image sensor has failed, this is a very common and almost inevitable fault just waiting to happen on digital cameras which are over five years old but it often occurs sooner. ... Canon PowerShot A60 Digital Camera

My Canon A95 has horizontal grid lines on the lcd screen after a photo is taken. The view on the screen is normal when you are framing the photo but after you take the shot the playback of that scene has these grayish horizontal lines and the image color is washed out. Changing the batteries and the cf card makes no difference and loading the photos on Adobe Photoshop shows the same problem on the computer screen. This just started yesterday after we downloaded a bunch of photos from the camera

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

SD550 camera not focusing correctly. Green focus square sometimes shows up, sometimes not, either way, it's not clear even on the digital screen prior to taking the shot. Camera does make a slight click when turned on/when lens open. Any suggestion?

To make the green square show up just press the shutter button until half (this is called the half press) when the green square shows up then it means that the camera has focused already, if not repeat the process til green square comes out you can p ...
