PowerShot A95 Purple Distorted Picture



i just got this camera from an etsy shop and ofc its used, but i thought it wouldn’t have any problems. the menu screen is perfectly fine but whenever i take a picture the picture looks like i took it while shaking my camera up and down and it has a purple tint. no matter how still i am it always had the same outcome. is this fixable? i was really excited to recieve this camera only to be let down because the pictures come out streaky and purple. please help!!



Welcome to the forum:

the Powershot A95 is a 19 year-old camera, and is likely at the end of its days.  Still, the first thing to do is to do a camera reset to factory settings - it's in the menus.  Honestly, from what you have said, I suspect the sensor is failing and in that case you cannot get it fixed - it's over a decade past its support period.

If you purchased it from a reputable shop you may be able to go back to them, but given many such purchases are on an as-is-where-is basis, I fear you have bought a dud.

cheers, TREVOR
