If you mean the image can't be seen in bright sunlight but you can view it just fine when you bring the camera indoors, this is a common problem with all digital cameras.

Canon powershot A470 problem when i click photo then white image come? but when i use it night it is normal. but during daylight or with sunlight.. white image appear....and every time i take a picture...

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.

I have dropped camera once, since after while clicking pictures at night in absolute dark, several round white small circles or spots are appearing on the image.But in full light area and in daylight...

Are these flash pictures? Are the spots in different places on each picture? If the answer to both questions is yes, the spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash back into the lens.

The camera takes great pictures in dark areas, but once there is light sunlight or otherwise, there are lines across the pictures and the image is not shown, why?

It's most likely a broken shutter cable inside the lens - happens to Samsung cameras all the time. You should be able to take videos in any conditions and pictures in low light conditions. The only way to fix this is to change the shutter unit with cable or whole lens unit. It should be expensive so I would recommend you getting a new camera, but this time not Samsung - they're pretty awful.

Sorry for the bad news!

Dropped Olympus SP-310 in water for 2 seconds. After drying out everything works except for a dark LCD when attempting to take a picture. Focus green light flashes and shutter will work, but no picture is...

If your device gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.

Black LCD Screen

Faulty main or secondary board. Could also be faulty light sensor or iris. Not a user fixable problem unless you can get another f601 with a broken lens etc with good boards (to replace boards). Or a dead camera with good lens assembly (contains iris).
Very fiddly if you have the parts!!!!!!

Best advise is to sell it as faulty on ebay.

Image on screen is too dark.

Adjust the brightness of the screen using the Camera SETUP menu. See page 3-14 for instructions. In direct sunlight conditions, you may need to shield the LCD display monitor with your hand.
