Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera ?

Canon A85 Digital camera white vertical lines in view mode.

\015 My Canon A85 Digital camera just started getting multiple horizontal white lines across the pictures in view mode. I have switched cards with the same result. I have put in new batts with the same resule. The Camera mode is in auto. The camera did not suffer any hard knocks, etc,. No extreme heat changes. Can anyone help here?\015

Answers :

Download the pictures to your computer...are the white lines still on the pictures? this way you can isolate whether the problem lies with the ccd or the lcd itself. If its just on the lcd i would just use the camera and deal with it. If its a CCD problem then your best bet is going to be replacing the camera.
Thank you,
Lee
Hi there,

Your camera's connecting parts\015\012of the internal wiring of the CCD used has been disconnected after an "x" amount of picture shots. This is a very known problem with the A85 model; though your videos are very much working well. Canon is aware that this is a manufacturing problem on their side. The good news here is that your model (A85) is eligible for free service regardless of warranty status, should any malfunction be caused by the CCD sensor.

Please take a look at this link to confirm:
http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

Further, here is the official statement from Canon:

"Effective immediately, and regardless of\015\012warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, the products listed\015\012above exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if Canon determines\015\012that the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also\015\012cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair."

And you will find this on Canon's website here:

Hope this helps. If you have other questions, please let me know.
