Canon PowerShot, SD900, Using AutoFlash, pictures takes 8 seconds


It takes quite abit of power to charge the flash module. The older your batteries are, or the more drained they are = more time it's going take to charge the flash module.
It requires fresh batteries. If your batteries are not fresh, the camera will still work up to a point (that's why you can still take pictures), but it will take longer to charge the flash module.

You will be able to check this, if you have the A/C adapter. You will find that by using the adapter from a wall outlet, you'll have no problem with the flash time.

This will fix your problem, and you'll get better performance from your camera. Thanks for coming to FixYa, and don't forget to rate my solution.

Same's happened with my Pentax WR, and a mate's Optio...

You're not alone, and we don't know why - we're gonna send them back to Pentax.

Camera showing/taking distorted images


According to many respected sources with far more expertise than myself, the symptoms you are describing also fall within the realm of Canon CCD failure. In Canon's Service Notice: CCD Image Sensor Advisory, they outline the most common symptoms (distorted images, LCD showing only a black screen, etc.). They have conveniently limited the description to the bare minimum. More symptoms of the failing CCD include: pictures appearing on LCD show up with severe color variations (pink-purplish or green tint), colored "streaks" or "lines" throughout pictures, and wavy distortions in image. Most of these symptoms include the color variations, but not always. The lines or waves can appear in any direction and with varying degrees of severity. Some LCDs do not go black, but turn totally purple. Here is a link to a very informative article that should clear up any questions you might have.
Digital Camera Repair Blog

If nothing else, call the Canon Customer Support Center at 1-800-828-4040. They will ask questions to identify whether or not you are having the same symptoms as described in the Product Advisory. I have been through this twice, and both times they were very nice and very helpful. Even if you don't qualify for the free repair, it didn't cost a thing to find out.
I hope this has been helpful.
