Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera ?

When I view my pic's on the camera they are all distorted and no color. they seem to be stretched.

Answers :

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info. \012

Faulty Lens? Sometimes when looking through the LCD screen the colours appear blended, overlapping and blotchy which makes it difficult to get a clear view of the item to be photographed. upon turning on (sliding open lense cover) screen view is distorted, "stretched", and item to be photographed is almost unidentifiable. Camera operates but pictures taken are "stretched" and distorted. However, stored pictures can be retrieved and are normal. Any advice?

Dear Swetnam\015\012\015\012 This is a internal circuit problem/defect and cannot be done on our own, so u should take it to SONY service centre. Avoid keeping the camera near hot temperatures zone. Sony is not tolerant to many physic ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

Image distortion I am having trouble when I download pictures onto my computer. The images look fine on LCD but once downloaded have either distorted color (streaks of green or other colors) or they have lines running through which make the images not aligned correctly. Each time I download pictures from the camera a greater quantity of pictures seem to be distorted and corrupted.

My Canon A95 camera which, up to now, has given beautiful color rendition, suddenly shows distorted colors. Greens have become intense veridian and there is a purplish haze on some photos. The distortion shows up on the LCD screen as well as when viewed on a computer screen. I can, to some extent, correct this in photoshop - but not entirely.

I have the Nikon coolpix 710, which was brought in Hong Kong When I click the play button, to view the pictures on the camera, it shows the last picture and the camera freezes up (not able to view any of the pics only for the last one taken). All buttons seem to be locked, with except for the power button. And even sometime the power button is stubborn and only works when it wants. Would this be a defective item, or...??? so confussed...

It seems to be a dead pixel, best thing would be to have it replaced from the Seller, else you can get it replaced with a new working lcd panel. This may be an expensive solution.Check whether you have a worldwide warranty from Canon, that will help ... Canon PowerShot SD790 IS Digital Camera

The camera is 2 years old, when turning on the power it goes to the date set,you can change the year, then it slides over to the month, but seems froze up, then the camera resets itself, if you skip the date set up, it shows a view on the lcd, but can't take a picture, and the camera resets again. My son borrowed it and took pictures snorkeling, so it may have gotten wet, but the lcd screen is not distorted as it was a year ago when I got water in it.

Help, I took about 80 pictures on my olympus sp-350 camera, an xd card was in it. Took my camera out the following night and half way through it seemed as if the camera switched to taking pics on the card/ internal memory (not sure which!) because I could only view the last ones taken and not those before. I have been onto photo rescue and that only recovered the ones that were on the card. I pray to God I haven't erased them they were taken on a special holiday in fRANCE! PLEASE help

Pictures Lost??? We have a large number of pics on our 1GB memory card in our camera. However after unsuccessfully trying to transfer images onto file via the olympus master software, the pictures cannot be viewed on the camera. They don't seem to be erased, as only 10 pictures can still be taken on the memory card (in HQ format). If they were erased there'd be more space available? These pictures are very valuable but I cannot work out where they have gone to. I haven't pressed the Erase All bu

Hi, I have been reliably informed that I can copy the pix from my LS743 internal memory to my memory card in order to view them via my pc. The guy in the camera shop told me that when I put the card back in my camera I would get a prompt as to whether I wanted to copy the pics over. Of course, I have no prompt... Can you help please? I have looked through the menus but apart from formatting option for internal memory or memory card there seems to be no mention of either! Thanks very much for any

Movie trouble I haven't had my camera very long, it was a hand-me-down from my dad. So, this past week I took my first videos with it. All seems good on the LCD screen, but when I try and view it on my computer it is all distorted and blurry. The sounds is great the picture is just awful. Were my settings wrong? It is opening up in the newest version of Windows Media Player, am I missing some drivers for viewing? Thanks for any help~ Lisa

Taking pics I just got a Nikon D40 camera and I can't seem to figure out how to view on the screen what I'm looking at when I'm trying to take a picture. I can view them in play mode after the fact, but isn't there a way to see on the screen instead of having to look through the little window to see what I'm shooting? Thanks in advance for any help!!!

That's because the Nikon D40 does not have Live View. Up until a couple of years ago, no DSLR's had live preview, due to the design of a DSLR over a point and shoot, as it has a pentamirror arrangement that effectivly deflects the light path to the v ... Nikon D40 Body Only Digital Camera
