Question about Canon PowerShot A410 Digital Camera
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
