Question about Canon PowerShot A410 Digital Camera

Digital camera problem

Greeting! I'm using a point and shoot 3.2 megapixel digital camera until lately it started to show problems.When i take photos outdoor, specially day time,The outcome shows too bright photos. It seems that no matter how i adjust the seetings the outcome is still thesame, that is too bright photo results. On night time and low light indoor shoot though the photos are ok, but the picture has horizontal lines when you view it on the LCD. I consulted few technicians and they told me thesame stories, that the CCD something has a problem...and something related to the apperture(I don't know all of these things)and they told me the repair for this problem will cost me a thousand bucks. Are these technicians telling the truth? I'm hoping for your good answers soon. Thanks and more power. Yours, Jo

The suggestion that it would cost a thousand dollars to fix this problem is totally off the mark. Your camera's shutter has stuck open. Normally when you take a picture the shutter closes blocking out the light and allowing the image sensor to record what it saw at the moment the shutter closed. When the shutter sticks open the images come out over-exposed and have lines across them because the image sensor is unable to properly record the image. This problem can be fixed with complete disassembly of the camera and lens assembly. The labor costs in the range of $89 to $145 and parts are not usually required. Check with your manufacturer for recalls and/or warranty support. If they cannot help you for free, there are repair providers which you can find online who will work on your camera for reasonable rates. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

I was just using my point and shoot S550 when all of a sudden, the photos I am taking produce a blank white screen with some colored vertical lines in parts of the photos. It was working fine a second ago....


I'm having the same problem. The first foto looks alright but the rest is as above. I do'nt have a sollution but i had removed the battery and the memory card and left the camera open in the hope it will be a damp issue. just now i take some new foto's and i still got the stripes but i have a picture. Hope some one will have the right sollution.

The vertical line can be caused by a very bright object in the image like a lamp or a silver surface reflecting the flash.
The spots are caused by the flash being SO close to the lens. Any object that can reflect the flash reflects it right back at the camera. This is an image problem with most point and shoot digitals. Watch for reflective surfaces and stand at an angle to them. Turn on more lights in the room before using flash. Stand at a slight angle to the image or person you are photographing - don't shoot straight on. (I kneel down and shoot up - makes a good shot too.)
If you are shooting toward the sun, shield the lens from direct sunlight with your hand (Keep your hand out of the picture!)

It wont take pictures


Determine how the camcorder works. There are 3 basic modes of capturing stills with a camcorder. Read your instruction manual for specific information.
  • Step 2 Understand freeze-frame stills. The most common and least effective method is a "photo mode." Basically, the camcorder will simply freeze a frame of video for a few seconds, which can then be extracted later as a still.
  • Step 3 Use editing software to capture stills. This method is similar to the first, and can be done with any camcorder. Download an editing program or use the camcorder's bundled software. Then transfer the video over to your computer and use the software to pull out stills.
  • Step 4 Understand built-in digital cameras. This is a more expensive option, but results in higher quality photos. These cameras have built-in memory cards and function basically the same as a stand-alone digital camera. Refer to the manual to switch over to digital camera mode, then point and shoot. The photo quality is usually a bit lower than from a stand-alone camera.
  • Step 5 Compare specifications. Understand that specifications for high quality video don't necessarily translate to high quality stills. CCD determines the quality of video, while megapixels determine the quality of stills.
  • Step 6 Consider the value. Whether or not a combination digital camera and camcorder is best for you depends on how you'll be sharing your photos

    I have a brand new Finepix S8100fd camera and the majority of the photos are speckled no matter what setting I use. However the super macro setting rocks and pictures are super clear! My Fuji 7.1 mega


    Common issue with the A8100fd. The most likely problem you are having is not enough light. Try shooting in bright sunlight to test the "graininess". Make sure you use the flash anytime the light is not bright. Even though the camera will shoot in low light (without flash), because it defaults to a high ISO setting, which (just like film) accentuates the "grain", or more properly termed in digital photography, "noise". Set the camera for a low ISO setting and use the flash whenever you see the "red hand" symbol on the screen.

    Greetings ashley 1980,

    Internal memory on this camera is a small amount of space you can save photos without using an additional memory card. On this model it is 16 mb, which for a 4 megapixel camera is going to accomodate a limited amount of pictures. This would be more than likely about 10 pictures.

    I hope this helps.

    Greetings love2ride,

    On most point and shoot digital cameras, there is an icon that looks like a movie camera. Simply turn the dial to this icon, point and press the shutter button! Review the video in the same way you review your digital photos.

    Thank you!
