Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A700 Digital Camera ?

Images are blurred on screen. do i need to replace?

\015 Images are blurred on one side of the LCD screen, and on the captured image file. initial canon Cust serv on phone thinks it requires a new CCD sensor, which is over $100! does this sound reasonable? unfortunately warranty has expired...\015

Answers :

I am not sure what your camera is, however since you are in the Canon powershot A700, I will go with that.
Reasonable, not sure, but not a bad price for the camera you have. Make sure if it is not still under some kind of warranty.
Canon also had a trade-in or trade-up program for refurbished units.

Let's try some things.
Do your menus come up at all and are they clear, not the problem when you look through the lens.
If the screen shows a correct menu, then reset the menus to default. See what happens then.
If the problem still exists, then you need the camera repaired. Canon seems to have given a great price for what you are having repaired. When this is replaced, it will need re-calculation on their equipment.
They probably will check out the rest of the camera to make sure all is okay as well and to specs.
Hope it works.

I have a Fuji Finepix F45 camera. After taking a photo the screen shows a badly blurred image. Same applies if I load the memory card into my PC. The image has wavy lines.

However the camera does show the battery as being fully charged. After spending £25 on a new battery I am reluctant to spend £30 on a new charger wh

Whenever the image or the camera shakes, the image gets blurred. I tried to use all options for auto image, P, S, etc. but they didnt worked. What settings need to be done to get shake proof images?

I have recently had the screen replaced after the images developed a magenta tone and became blurred. Now the camera works fine above water but when mounted in the underwater housing the underwater images revert back to the dark magenta tones and are blured. It is the same regardless of wheterh the camera is set to U/W, auto or video mode.

My olympus Fe 230 has a problem on start up. the red light keeps flashing, the image remains blurred and the lens keeps retracting and does not fully open and the only time I get a clear image is when I focus to original size after zooming and that too for a split second only.

Lens assembly The lens assembly has become loose. One of the outer rings has actually detatched from the camera body.When switching on - either the message 'lens fault' is displayed or a very blurred image is displayed in the LCD. The camera shop reckons the problem is quite common and estimates $A200 to fix ie replace lens assembly. Any similar experiences? (Of course, the camera is 3 months out of warranty).

Pink areas.

My camera was recently bought at goodwill, and the CCD imager needs to be replaced I think. Every time that I go to take a picture, there is a streak of light running up and down the screen when I am near a light source. Will the fact that I bought it at goodwill effect the warranty in any way? Will it still be free to fix?

Canon Powershot G10 image quality problems... I have had my Canon Powershot G10 for 2 years and have had the same problem from the start... it is now driving me mad! When viewing photos in anything other than the supplied Canon Zoom Browser or Photo Professional the quality is poor. The images are noticeably blurred and appear grainy. I normally shot in manual mode with ISO80 and record images in RAW+JPEG. Processing the RAW photos seems to slightly improve the blur (though it is still there)

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!
