Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera ?

Screen is washed out

\015 The LED viewing screen no matter what mode, looks like flat stick was pulled across a wet color painting and does not change.\015

Answers :

Most likely the LCD Screen is broken, that's one of the ways it looks when it's been broken. It will need to be replaced. Sometimes you can find them on the net, and sometimes you can find an "as is" camera on ebay for a few bucks, and salvage it's screen. There are many articles and even videos about how to change the screen on the net. Get an estimate before you get it repaired. The cost of repair can exceed the replacement cost of a new camera. Good luck, hope this helps!

Horizontal lines OK, we fixed the black screen and black pictures, but I'm still getting a strong pattern of horizontal lines in my pics. Pictures shot with manual setting adjustments are better than those on automatic, and the lines don't show too much with a strong flash (but if the flash is too strong then the image is washed out).
