Set the camera flash to auto. A digital camera will automatically use all available light to take a picture, and will only use extra light (the flash) if it needs to.
By using manual flash you are over exposing your shots..... giving it more light than is required.
Give it a try.

WhY photos canon A470? i have a canon powershot A470 camera and there's a problem taking photo.. whenever i take a picture, it's either fully white or have white stripes on the pictures.. i thought it


Perhaps you check the settings. If the camera is on nightshot, or manual, with a long shutter time or wilde open diafragma your pictures are all overblown, or stripes come from lights. Put the camera in automatic. The main dial on the green camera logo, and try again. If this does not work, Please let me know how the settings are on your camera. Success

White photos canon A470? i have a canon powershot A470 camera and there's a problem taking photo.. whenever i take a picture, it's either fully white or have white stripes on the pictures.. i thought it...


I had this problem too, I think it's the shutter problem, it doesn't close
when a picture is taken, therefore, causing the over exposed photo...I've sent it back to canon, still waiting for the reply...

When taking pictures they come out blurrie i try


Turn on your flash! Even in good lighting, shoot with the flash on. This will make your exposure shorter, and there will be less opportunity for movement of the camera or the subject to blur the photo.

Pictures that I take come out very white/bright. you cannot tell details. I have changed batteries and have the setting on auto.


Double-check your flash settings. You mentioned the camera is in Auto mode, but the flash has separate settings from the camera's shooting mode. With the camera in shooting mode AUTO check the Flash settings (Auto, Red-Eye Reduction, Fill-In, Off) It may be set to 'fill' causing your photos to be too bright.

Also, depending on how close you are to your subject the flash may not be needed. Using the flash when too close to your subject (less then 3 ft.) will cause bright/white photos. Turn the flash OFF if you are taking macro or photos closer then 3ft.

If neither of these fix your problem, turn the flash mode OFF, and camera shooting mode to AUTO and in a naturally well lit area, take a photo, if the photo is still too bright, you may have something mechanically wrong with your camera.

My camera displays a "white screen" when i take photos "outdoors" or during daytime outside


Are you sure that you are in full "auto" mode when you are taking your pictures? Make sure that the mode selector is set to the first red camera (without the M) right next to the little blue arrow.

If you already are in full auto, 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:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html

Your camera is not capable of taking 15 second exposures. Instead try putting it in manual mode, turn off the flash, take it in a darkened room, take the picture, and open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are blinking. Give it several tries, but note that the chances may be very slim for success as the shutter symptoms suggest that it is stuck open.

Flash pops up, but flash closed warning stays


My E5700 did this a couple of times. The fix for my flash was that the unit wasn't actually popping all the way open. I closed it, then manually poppped open the flash and gave it a gentle upward tug. The flash seemed to lock into position -- and has worked fine since. I hope your fix is as simple as with my E5700.

I hope this helps!

Pictures look blownout and have lines all along the photo.


Take that camera in anyway. I still beleive you have a CCD problem.

There is a difference in the way the CCD shifts out data when in movie mode and that might be why you still have a good picture.

I personally replace acouple CCD`s on the DSC-F717. And yes Sony paid us on behalve of the customer.

Be nice to the front-end staff when taking it in. It might prove a very good investment.

Good luck.
