Canon a80 camera


\015 I have a canon a80 camera which was dropped whilst on holiday and has been sent for repair.this has been returned from authorised repairer and on taking some photos and video there is a horizontal line across the picture which transfers to computer screen. the lcd screen on the camera also shows this line when trying to take a photo..This does not happen with every photo, probably about 10 % of ones taken ...\015

Answers :

It seems that either the image sensor or the connection between the image sensor and the processing board has been damaged or was improperly installed. If you sent it in because the lens was jammed it is highly likely that this is what has happened. See if you can get the facility who repaired it to cover the re-do, in the end it is their fault if your CCD is defective now and was not before the repair. However - if the camera was non functional after you dropped it they could very well say that the impact caused the problem. You might have no options besides either dealing with the issue or replacing the camera.\015\012\015\012David Millier\015\012Advance Camera Repair

I have verified my Canon A95 drains batteries by doing an amperage test. Starting with new batteries I install them in the camera and then layer a thin copper wire then piece of paper then copper wire and close the battery door. Touching the wires together closes the circuit and the camera functions. With the wires appart I measure the camera amps. The camera measures 0.6 amps when on and 0.14 amps when off. Doing the same test with my A80 Canon yeilds 0.45 amos when on and zero amps when off. T
