Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera ?

Digital Camera Malfunction

\015 My Canon Power Shot A70 turns on just fine. The Canon logo screen appears, then the screen goes blank. I can't see anything. If I press the button to take a picture the flash goes off - it seems like I'm taking a picture, but the screen stays blank. The "picture" I just took does not appear for two seconds either.\015\012\015\012If I flip to the review mode, nothing appears. If I hold the button at 3 o'clock (one of the four buttons on the back of the camera), the pictures I've taken previously (not the one I've just tried to take) appear. \015\012\015\012Do you have any thoughts on what might be wrong and how I can fix it?\015\012\015\012Thanks!\015\012The screen is blank after I take a picture. The flash goes off but the camera appears not to have taken a picture.\015

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....


Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera
