If you have not dropped your camera or otherwise caused damage that would explain the change, then you should first check the settings.  Your camera has both automatic and manual exposure controls.  From what you wrote I expect you want to use the automatic settings.  First check the "dial" on top of the camera, which has a green AUTO setting.  Your manual should explain the settings in  further detail  if necessary.

SOURCE: White photos canon A470? i have a canon

I had this problem too, I think it's the shutter problem, it doesn't close
when a picture is taken, therefore, causing the over exposed photo...I've sent it back to canon, still waiting for the reply...

SOURCE: canon powershot A470 problem when

The shutter flex cable inside the lens is broken. Happens to all cameras from Canon A4xx series. At day the images will be overexposed with horizontal lines on it, but it could look better at dark / night. The FLEX has to be replaced. Canon doesn't supply new flex cables for these, but there are some cheap copies on ebay. But as these brake very often, I wouldn't suggest you investing money in this camera, because it will brake again sooner or later.

Try setting it to a slower effective ISO rating, this may improve both situations. An ISO of 100 is effectively a slower picture speed, but it increases the pixel density so your pictures should appear better.

If you did not get a manual, I do suggest it because there is a great deal that camera can do that is not always apparent from the buttons you see.

If you need to download one,

pick your model or family of camera and when that page has loaded you can download a number of documents.

My daytime pictures are whited out ,my nightime pictures turn out fine but if I take a picture outside in sunlight or if the interior light is bright , my pictures are white.


Shutter flex cable failure, a problem that's particular to nearly all the Canon A4XXX series cameras. See this link for more info. The part is extremely inexpensive (see here), and can even be bought from Chinese websites for $2 with free shipping. But repair is not for the amateur, as the part is buried inside the camera. For your model camera, would instead recommend considering retiring it, and consider purchase of a new camera.

The Problem with the Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera Is That, where do I start? I took my mum's camera(without her permission!).

I cannot take a picture when there sunlight,it started when i took a picture of burning house is the affected my camera


No, the burning house unlikely cause the problem. The A470 is particularly subject to something called a "stuck shutter". A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. 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. Now recommend proceeding directly to Fix 5A listed in the article. If that doesn't help, your camera may have a more serious problem of a broken ribbon cable to the shutter. This seems to be very common for the A4XX series cameras from Canon. Here's some info on the problem.
