Canon A75, loses image completely-maybe image sensor?


\015 I've had my A75 for a little over a year. I love this little camera and have been through thick and thin through it. In the last few weeks, I'm not sure what is causing it but I will get this:\015\012http://www.steadief.com/temp/hike/IMG_6842_9_1.JPG\015\012\015\012A few minutes before the pictures were great. A little while later they are great.\015\012\015\012I've tried:\015\012-Changing the batteries.\015\012-Removing and re-inserting the CF card.\015\012-Changing the setting selector on top of the \015\012 camera to every other setting.\015\012-Depressing the shutter to make the camera \015\012 autofocus\015\012-Using manual focus (even though you can't see\015\012 anything)\015\012-Pointing it into bright light\015\012-Pointing it into the dark\015\012\015\012I'm stumped. It appears if I let the camera sit for a while, it then works again.\015\012\015\012Any suggestions are welcomed. \015\012\015\012Thanks in advance.\015

I am not sure whether this feedback will work for me or not but still I must say that I am totally dissatisfy with canon DSLR camera and it?s service that is available in Kolkata. 16 months ago I bought a canon EOS 1000D (SN. 730203665) camera.

My Canon A75 cannot take pictures. Intially, a blurry purplish image would occur when taking a picture, now nothing comes into the image screen, except when the video setting is selected. In that case, a mostly white-purple image is seen.

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise.
