Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera ?

Problems in A85

\015 Recently, I found some problems in my Canon A85,\015\0121. there are running lines with changing color on LCD display especially when viewing "dark" object.\015\0122. the images taken are sometimes good, sometimes bad, e.g. a) purple sepia image or b) many horizontal lines distort the image.\015\012Anything I could do, please advise.\015\012My S410 just started doing this. A week before vacation! It appears that it is a similar issue, I emailed them about it. If you display images that existed on the card, they look fine. Anything new is a blurry image with ghosted vertical lines.\015

Answers :

It appears the CCD image sensor is going bad. Both these cameras are specified in Canon's technical notice regarding this issue. If Canon determines that this is the problem (and almost certainly it is), they will repair your cameras at no cost, regardless of warranty status. If you're not in the US, contact your regional Canon service facility.
Thanks for the advise about Canon's Technical Notice. Camera is on its way to repair for free. Problem: blury image at times.

My Canon PowerShot A85 no longer shows scene on the LCD screen before shoot nor immediately afterward and records a blank on the memory card.

Why are the pictures a red hue? The Canon PowerShot A85 pictures are sometimes full of horizontal lines, sometiimes not, and the total image has a reddish hue.

I have a cannon powershot a85, and I clicked on the site you recommended and learned that it is listed for a free repair if your lcd screen goes black. My camera only recently did this, except i have dropped it before, years ago, but i did not have that problem then. Do you know if they'll still fix it for free, or do you think they'll attribute the blank screen to the slight dent on the camera?


If the drop years ago caused no problem in all this time, it therefore did not contribute to your lcd problem. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
