This white spot appearing on your camera is not due  to the problem of your settings it may be due to the flash light reflecting from some shining surface or there may be some substance inside the lense  of the camera which may be appearing as a white spot inside your camera

Attempt to restore the camera to the default settings or change the flast setting, will have to check the manual to provide more details.

    Just to add, I haven't checked the settings yet, but my own camera does this same thing if I take the picture close from the object and its dark, suggest also try having more light on the room / object so flash is not needed.

I have black spots on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 lens camera


If you want to know if these spots are on the sensor. Or you want to exclude this, You could try this:
Put the camera in A priority. (manual mode). Turn the aperture to the highest setting. Greatest figure like f 22 I can't find the exact figure. It could be it is only 8. Then in a bright light, take a picture of a white sheet of paper. The picture that comes out, should be checked on dark spots. If they are there the spots are on the sensor. If you can't find the spots on the white picture, something else is wrong.

LCD screen and pictures go completly white


The camera is defective. But as you've only had the camera three months it still is under warranty. Canon is usually very responsive to these type of problems and will bend over backwards to make things right (probably the most responsive of the camera companies).

Call 1-800-OK-CANON to resolve this issue.

White spot on photo


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, this would be a temperature imbalance on the CCD lens. Often white spot(s) appear at night or when the temperature is cold. Workaround is to open the lens but delay taking a picture after a few seconds. The idea is allow the lens to match the ambient temperature.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Spot on photos from a canon 350d


Spots
If you see bright circles or spots on photos taken with flash, and the lens appears to be clean, then this is probably caused by particles (dust, pollen, etc) in the air.

See:
http://home.fujifilm.com/products/digital/shooting/flash.html
http://webpages.charter.net/bbiggers/DCExperiments/html/body_spots_.html 
http://www.fratkin.com/d320l/spots.html

There's also an interesting thread on the CANON DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY FORUM at <http://photography-on-the.net/forum/viewtopic.php?TopicID=2912> 

And an explanation of sorts at <http://www.fujifilmsupport.com/faq/tech/spot/spot.htm> 

I really don't know if a slave flash would help, because I assume the A40 flash would still be operating, but if you could borrow one it might be worth a try. 

Might be a wild goose chase, but you could try changing some small thing, just in case ... 
... like trying a different flash mode - slow synch for example?
... or different picture modes - perhaps snapshot or infinity?
... or changing from AUTO to Program, or from Program to Manual, etc?

Otherwise it's probably a case of waiting for most of the dust to settle, taking more than one photo, or just trying to do without flash whenever possible in that sort of situation ... 

Another suggestion I just came across is to use a Negative Ion Generator - used to purify air by precipitating out the particles. Don't know how well it would work - probably not very well if folk keep moving around - and sounds expensive, so maybe not worth buying one - but if dust is a regular problem, and you just happen to know someone that has one ...

How do I use the self timer on my PowerShot A570 IS camera? Please help...


Press the Center Button

By pressing the center button on the four-way controller, you'll open up the Function menu. This menu has the following options:
  • ISO speed (Auto, High ISO Auto, 80, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600) - see below
  • White balance (Auto, daylight, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent, fluorescent H, underwater, custom) - see below
  • Drive (Single-shot, continuous, 2 or 10 sec self-timer, custom self-timer)
  • My Colors (Off, vivid, neutral, sepia, black & white, custom color) - see below
  • Flash compensation (-2EV to +2EV in 1/3EV increments) + flash output (1/3, 2/3, full) - this last item is only available in manual mode
  • Metering mode (Evaluative, center-weighted, spot)
  • Compression (see chart later in review)
  • Resolution (see chart later in review)

The Third Option is Having Self Timer ..... Check

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

White spots


In addition, flash lighting dust doesn't make a white spot, but a fuzzy whitish circle (out of focus). The image underneath is still visible, but distorted. These are definitely not flash reflecting on dust.
