I have a Canon PowerShot A95 that has provided very good service for four years. But recently, the color and images are very distorted in some photos - faded purple in color with the image blurred or melted, sometimes icicle-like or stalactite-like in appearance. This occurs in both outdoor and indoor shots. These distortions do not occur in every shot, but have increased in frequency. This is the only problem I have ever had with this camera.

Pincushion distortion I've actually had this camera for about 2.5 years now, so presume well out of warranty, but I realise by looking back at my photos that the problem may have been there from the start. When taking photos on the default camera position I get a reasonably severe distortion of the picture, such that a person standing off centre will have his head elongated somewhat toward the corners, and straight lines along the edge will bend toward the corners. I suspect from the web

Monitor unlit I'm using my colleges D40 for my digital photo class. The camera was set by a prior student. I'm trying to find on the camera where the "Auto- Off Timers" is. I'm thinking the camera was set so the monitor is always off avoiding extra use of the battery. It has to be something simple and getting used to moving around the camera program. Thanks

I have a problem with a Cannon Power Shot A610 as follows: The monitor is dark when the camera is turned on and the camera will not take photos. The playback works OK for reviewing photos previously taken before this problem developed. A Best Buy troubleshooter inspected it aand said the sensor in the cameera was bad and that I should buy a new camera because of the repair cost. I need a second opinion before making this decision. Thanks. e-mail address: [email protected]

When I attempt at taking photos with my camera, I notice that most of them don't turn out. Instead all I can see in the screen & the picture is this purple-ish screen. It responds to light, but I can't see any figures (people). It does this with, not only pictures, but videos also. Once in a great while, it will work fine, but lately I've taken 3 pictures without any weird, purple, fuzzy lines on them. I've had my camera for only 6 months, and I may have dropped it a few times, but probably not

Fiji Finepix F401 - I have had great success with the above camera but it has suddenly developed what I think is a sensor problem. The viewfinder displays a badly blurred and distorted picture which is green and purple in colour. The camera will no longer take any still or video pictures. To make matters worse, I recommended this particular camera to my father and his has now developed the same problem. Both cameras are out of guarantee.


I am sorry sir, this is due to extreme expsoures high temperatures and sun. Also please mind that ur CCD sensor has to be replaced.\015\012\015\012Thankyou ... Digital Cameras

I have a fully charged battery and I turn the camera on and all of a sudden I cannot get a display on the screen. It gets a few purple waves, but goes back to a black screen. I have it in camera mode and the original settings i had the camera in when i took pictures, which came out very nice. I saved all my photo's to my computer to see if maybe i filled the memory stick, but still no luck... -Sandy


The display is probably bad - it can be replaced. Try taking a picture and download the results on a computer - if it's ok, then that confirms a bad display. The camera is still usable but with a bad display viewer. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera
