Camera malfunctioning in Creative Zone Modes

\015 When is use any of the Creative Zone Modes on my Canon Rebel XTi - in Program (AE) mode, I can't change the ISO speed or the AF Mode. When I use any of the Creative Zone Modes, the picture is not displayed on the LCD screen. I have to go back to Full Auto in the Basic Zone to see the last pic taken (or any pictures on card). Also, the camera will not power down in the Creative Zone Modes, as it does after 30 sec. in the Basic Zone. At one point, I got a quick flash message "FIL" and the flash was going off once as I went from Program (AE) back to Basic. Help!\015

Hi. I have a Canon Xsi/450D Camera.

My Canon PowerShot A85 hasn't been used much. Every now and then - when I switch the camera on - I just just get purplish mess on the screen. It's not the screen itself that doesn't seem to function (the review mode with taken pictures does work). The CCD seems to be malfunctioning. But then, after a while and while, the camera just decides to act normally again. Could it be I need new firmware? If so, how and where can I download that? Thank you for your attention. Frank.

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 A85 Digital Camera

Stabilizer Photo dummy here AGAIN....I have been reading alot about some pictures being blurry b/c of the natural shake of the human hand....with the camera I have Canon Digital Rebel XT....I only have the basic lens that came with the camera so far...in the basic zone modes...is it normal for the pictures to be blurry b/c of the natural shake in our hands...if so...then is this lens just pointless?

Focus malfunction I have been shooting with my D70 for a little over a year now with absolutely no problems. I shot with it last weekend with no problems. However, yesterady when I took my camera out to use it I realized that my autofocus single area option won't let me change from one focus area point to another. It is stuck on the center focus area. Even stranger when I tested the autofocus on the closest subject mode it is capable of locking on each of the five focus points. Does anybody know

THere is a little switch on the back of the camera, just under the area selection Dpad. Make sure it is not in the 'L' setting. This locks the selected autofocus area. ... Nikon D70 Digital Camera

I have a Pentax M20 camera. I love the camera but all of a sudden I find that when I turn the camera on, the camera almost instantly shuts off. I have new batteries in the camera. When the camera first starts up I can see "Green Mode" on the screen but it immediately shuts down. The camera is not allowing me to access any programming modes at all and certainly not allowing any picture taking. Until just a few days ago I have had absolutely no problems with this camera. Any advice is greatly appr

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem.

The mode dial doesn't seem to work. The camera is stuck on the high speed sequential setting. When we select iauto, it takes one picture and then freezes. When we select the camera option on the mode dial, it takes 13-15 pictures in succession and then freezes. The pictures are taken without the button being pressed. We need to power off to change modes. The camera did work for a little while.

Base from the description of your problem what we can do here first to correct the problem is to reset or restore the camera settings to its default from the camera MENU. Then once you done that check if its working fine now. ... Olympus Digital Cameras
