You first need to change the operating mode to Manual. Then you can change the flash by pressing the right button a few times.

Screen does not show images


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, 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 the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

My Pwershot SD450 will not take photos in low or interior light.


I hope that you have selected "flash on". Try first on at all times;and then flash AUTO.
ISO at 400 or 800
Does it flash when you take a picture ?
If not, and it is selected to flash, then the capacitor or bulb needs replacing.

Cannot download pictures using zoom browser ex with my camera Canon SD450 in my Wwindows Vista laptop. Laptop doesn't open automatically the download window as in with XP. Also, I cannot open Canon Camera...


Camera direct to computer connections are notoriously problematic. (Lousy with bugs etc.) I avoid the problem entirely by using a card reader ($15-20) combined with Picasa3 (free software from Google). Remove card from camera and insert into card reader, connect to computer via USB and download images with Picasa3. Works great and is relatively cheap.

Undo flash


On the back of the camera you should see a little picture of a lightning bolt. Click this multiple times and it will cycle thru the different flash settings. Look for the one where the bolt is in a circle and there's a diagonal line going across it. This means NO FLASH. Once you have set that it will prevent the camera from firing the flash.

Canon sd450 - spilled a little lemonade on the camera


maybe the lemonade was sticky and the shutter can't open? otherwise the circuitry could have been fried if you turned it on before it dried inside.
