Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera ?

Can't get normal color in video mode.


\015 I can't turn off color accent and color swap in video mode to get normal color. When I switch to standard or to anything else besides color accent and color swap, everything turns blue. I do get the normal color briefly when the screen alternates back and forth between the normal colors and black and white in the color accent mode.\015

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?
