    Hi there,

    I have a Canon PowerShot A85 and all of a sudden it the pictures it was taking came out very over exposed with a pink tint to them (see http://www.geocities.com/noonap/techie.html). Does anyone have any idea why this is?

    Is it fixable?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Matt

    Hello and welcome!

    Ummm, sorry, that doesn't look over exposed to me, I think that your sensor is on the fritz. Looks like it isn't registering all of the colors.

    Call tech support and point them to your pics. If it's really dead, find out what a rebuild would be.

    i agree, maybe it is overexposed, but what you see here is something worse... must involve the sensor or camera electronics.

    Thanks for the info.

    The camera is out of warranty but I'll contact Canon and see what they say.
