Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera ?

Pink, blurry, distorted photos

\015 I've had my canon powershot A85 for four years now, but it's been the BEST camera! Till recently. When I turn on the camera it's fine, but after I take a photo the photo is pink, blury, with tiny white horizontal lines on it. Does this sound like the defective CCD imager? or sensory problem? When I called canon they said they would fix it for free if it was the sensory problem but if not it would cost me 80 dollars. HELP.\015\012Thanks\015

No this definitely sounds like symptoms of a defective 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. Please check the following two links for more info:

\015\012Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 200a/300a/400/450/500

\015\012And even if it's determined not to be a CCD sensor problem, just tell them to send it back unrepaired. The A85 is a nice camera, but my goodness you can almost get a good new camera these days for $80.

Sony DSC-S700 when turned on sometimes the screen is blurry and pink toned with blurry grey lines running accross the screen. Photos turn out the same. Happens intermittently. Have changed batteries, checked to ensure the dial on the top was centered on Auto Adjustment setting. Doesn't matter what setting display looks the same: pink and blurry with the lines. Checked all the settings in the menu. Not sure why it does this...worried it may be a board problem.
