I cannot be sure without more information, but it is possible that your iris or ISO setting has been switched to manual. check your owners manual and be sure it is on auto. this will adjust for the available light automatically. i hope that is all you need. if not, you may have a defective camera. good luck.

Pictures are to dark


In order to adjust the ISO; please go into the Menu (Capture+ tab) and set the ISO for 64, 100 or 200 in order to reduce the darkness. However this will lead to slower shutter speeds in low light.

Also try different SCN and ISO to see if problem still persists.
If the problem is intermitted, try to find a pattern in to when the faulty pictures appear.

Canon power shot sd1000 black dot on lens


If by saying the upper right corner of the lens you really mean that there is a dark spot on each image AND the rear display, there may be dirt or dust on the lens itself. Clean the lens with an optical quality cleaner. Do not use paper towels and Windex or the like - as paper towels can scratch the lens.

It is also possible that the dark spot is a "stuck pixel" on the image sensor inside the camera. There is no way to repair a stuck pixel outside of replacing the sensor. Any dark spot (regardless of source) can be edited out by using image editing software. This will allow you to to make the dark spot less noticeable - or practically invisible.

If the dark spot is on the rear display only, it can also be a result of a "stuck pixel" on the display itself. This should not show up an images, but only on the display. There is little that can be done outside of replacing the entire rear screen.

There are other things that can cause these problems, but those listed above are the most common.

I hope this was Very Helpful and good luck!

Dark video


I know a few years a good the best camera for filming inside was one with a single large chip. Most cameras have multiple smallish ones apparently to give you good colour quality.
You need light to reflect the wavelength of a colour, so if there is no light the CCJ's (digital equivalent to light sensitive grains) have difficulty deciding what to do or what shade to give, (the absence of colour is not a colour,) giving you a grainy effect. You can increase the amount of light into a camera in low conditions ie shutter speed but this may give you blurred photos.

I gave the lense part of the camara a moderate slap, and the camara has worked fine since. looks like a lot of people have the same problem. Most of the people call it black screen problem. the shutter gets stuck. Tap it a few times on the side of the lense part of the camara moving it from bright to dark objects back and forth.
good luck.

Poor quality pictures


Check your picture settings, the wrong setting for the time of day or object can definetly throw off the appearance of your pictures. Plus, you may have accidentally set it to "warm" instead of auto or black and white, etc. Warm pictures have a reddish tint to them just as the cool have a blue tint. Also I have found the "night setting" only takes really good pictures if you are close to the subject otherwise it is pretty dark!
