Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera ?

Blurry picture on Canon A80

\015 Hi, I can take a shot using my Canon A80, but I always get blurry picture full of horizontal red stripes. Strangely, I can do movie recording without any problem. I have spent hours changing all the setup, but the problem still persist. \015\012\015\012Canon techinician said that it is not CCD image problem, since I can clearly see the scene on my LCD and viewfinder. I've tried to search on the Internet, but found no solution. Any idea on how to solve it? Thank you so much, and I really appreciate it..\015

Answers :

I don't know what you told that technician, but try this. Download some of your pictures and videos to your computer. If the downloaded pictures look fine on your computer, then the technician was right, and it's probably just a loose LCD ribbon cable connection.

\015\012BUT if the downloaded pictures also look blurry with stripes, then it's probably a faulty CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. BUT MAKE SURE you tell the technician this time that it is showing up on your DOWNLOADED pictures. I recommend trying again, and hope for a more knowledgeable tech on the line this time. Please check the following two links for more info:

Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.


Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this. ... Digital Cameras

Stabilizer Photo dummy here AGAIN....I have been reading alot about some pictures being blurry b/c of the natural shake of the human hand....with the camera I have Canon Digital Rebel XT....I only have the basic lens that came with the camera so far...in the basic zone modes...is it normal for the pictures to be blurry b/c of the natural shake in our hands...if so...then is this lens just pointless?

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take.

Blurred pictures I started using my new Nikon Coolpix on Christmas Eve and have taken photos for about 2 weeks. More than half of the pictures are very blurry after I transferred them to my computer and enlarged them to view. My daughter also got a Canon Elph on the same day and her photo quality is much much better. I also own a Nikon D5000 and have always been very happy with the quality, thus my choice of a Nikon pocket camera. Have I made a mistake?

I am a freelance writer. I have a Canon PowerShot A1000IS that I use to take photos to go along with articles I write for the local paper. Recently almost all the pictures I take are blurry on the top 1/3 of the photo. It hasn't always been this way and it doesn't happen all the time so it makes me think that possibly I have somehow gotten some of the settings off. The bottom 1/3 is sometimes a little blurry too but not as much as the top. Can anyone tell me what would cause this and what I can
