Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera ?

My camera was recently bought at goodwill, and the CCD imager needs to be replaced I think. Every time that I go to take a picture, there is a streak of light running up and down the screen when I am near a light source. Will the fact that I bought it at goodwill effect the warranty in any way? Will it still be free to fix?

Answers :

If it's under warranty and the camera doesn't have any sign of abuse and you have the warranty card for it then it should be free for you to get it fixed. I don't see why not. If the service center asks where you got the camera from tell them it was a gift and you're not sure. Then they can't blame you! :) Good luck!!

Black Screen Bought wife L18 last Xmas. Used once since. Turn it on and lens comes out, but screen is nearly completely black. Menu items barely readable if not viewed under bright light. "Reset ALL" at Setup does nothing. Replaced batteries 3 times, and have taken batteries out of camera for several weeks. No change. Cannot see on-screen image even in bright sunllight.

Focus camera will not focus, even sight screen is out of focus The camera will not focus. When switched on it beeps with a flashing green light near rthe view-finder and the lens housing extends. This repeats and the then the viewing screen goes blank. Pressing the AEL button will illuminate the viewing screen, but it is out of focus. Half depression of the shutter makes no difference. I had previously some intermittent operation of the zoom mechanism. The camera has not been dropped or jarred.

White Screen Ever since a few nights ago, my camera has been showing this white screen. The funny thing is, that I can see the menu and other options perfectly. But when I want to take a picture, the screen is pure white, and even the pictures I take are absolutely white, and sometimes with a light grayish circle in the middle. I don't know why this is and I just bought this camera around the fifth of january and it was working perfectly fine then. Please help me?

Hi, I bought the Fujifilm Finepix S2500HD a week back. I have noticed a strange problem with the LCD screen or is it the sensor? In low light situations when you turn the camera on, the screen is not clear and there are disturbances in the form of blue dots across the LCD which appear like a screen refreshing phenomena.

My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7has bought up an issue where it brings up an 'usb connecting' screen for one or two seconds occasionally when using the camera. This does not effect the photo taking quality at all, it just means I have to wait for the screen to clear. Do I have to get a tech. to fix it, or can it be done in camera. 2 years old and out of warranty. Very annoying. Any thoughts. Thanks, Ian.

I just recently bought a kodak zd710. When i received the product, i turned on the camera and i was immediately prompted to set the date and time.

I've just bought a vistaquest FS-501 Scanner. I don't have an sd card for it. I've plugged it into my xp pc (using the usb cable supplied) after installing the driver. Now the led light comes on when I open the cover but when I insert some film into the scanner no image is displayed on the screen.

Brightness I recently bought the Olympus Stylus 700 and took it on a vacation with me and it worked fine, but shortly after returning, the camera began to take extremely bright pictures, in fact if there is any natural light (not produced by the flash), there is nothing but the vague outlines of some objects. I adjusted the shutter speed to little avail and even thought formatting the memory card would help. Now I have no idea what else to do, aside from taking it back for its warranty.
