Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

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: wharber@knology.net

I called Cannon Tech Support. They offered to repair mine or uugrade me to more expensive one ( rebuilt ) for less than their estimated repair price. I haven't made a decision yet.

Hi, I have a Cannon Powershot A610 and when I take a picture the picture comes out too dark. How can I adjust the it? thanks


"Too dark" or do you really mean "totally black"? I'm asking because a stuck shutter is a very common failure mode for your particular model camera.
The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

YES HI my cam will not turn on. its a powershot a610 cannon cameria


Things to check first are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Details on what needs to be checked may be seen here. It won't work for every case, but it's worth a try.

New Camera, no picture on screen


This is normal for this camera. Think about it. The CMOS chip can't see through the mirror. After the shot is taken the electronic shutter exposes the CMOS chip and makes an image just like exposing film on a film type camera. Once you get used to it you may like it better. In outdoor or bright light situations it's difficult to view the LCD screen to frame the shot anyway.
