Canon A95 - Intermittent problem. Image is purple and distorted - not all photos. First occured in hot humid weather. Thought it was heat related. Happened again in cool weather. Sometimes helps to turn camera off and on again.

I have a Canon PowerShot A95 that has provided very good service for four years. But recently, the color and images are very distorted in some photos - faded purple in color with the image blurred or melted, sometimes icicle-like or stalactite-like in appearance. This occurs in both outdoor and indoor shots. These distortions do not occur in every shot, but have increased in frequency. This is the only problem I have ever had with this camera.

Focus problems Hello, I just got the new A95 after enjoying the A80 for a few months. I'm experiencing two major problems, occurring especially when shooting in low-light conditions: a. The image displayed on the LCD screen is very dark, while in the A80 it would automatically become lighter after pressing half way. b. The auto focus won't work lower indicator blinks yellow). I have experienced these problems so intensely with my A80. What might be the problem?

When I view my card in the camera, I see all my photos. When I go to down load them using different programs, besides Kodak, it shows that some of the photo are "drawing failed". Is the problem with my camera or my memory card? Also be advised that when I first got the camera (about 7 months ago), I never had any problems. This type of problem has occurred within the past two months. That is why I am not sure if it's the camera or card.

It's much more likely to be the card than the camera, but it could be either.Try removing all of the files from the card, then reformatting it. Using an external card reader to reformat would be preferable, because it removes the camera ... Kodak Easyshare Z812-IS Digital Zoom Digital Camera

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

My HP Photosmart 945 has the following problem: pictures have wrong colour. It is hard to describe what is exactly wrong. Sometimes it looks like black and white colors, some other times pictures appears with satured colours, other time edges appears highlighted. All other stuffs are working properly. Any idea? Is the CCD sensor damaged? Or is it a firmware problem? Is it a common and well known problem with HP PS 945? Marco [email protected]

I got my camera around January 2008 but I haven't gotten to use it for around a year and a half. This is the first time I can try to fix it due to costs and other problems. I think the camera is having CCD problems because I can't take pictures without them being black but I can see previous pictures just fine. I've heard that repairs for this sort of thing are expensive especially once the camera is out of warranty- with luck, mine happens to be out of warranty. How can I fix this? And if I wer

Samsung MX20 shuts down without notice while shooting. Sometimes this will happen and sometimes not. It occurs randomly (i.e., it may shut down after 5 minutes or 15 minutes) It is plugged in and turned on, so it is not a power problem. There is plenty of memory remaining.
