Canon SD630 Image Problem

Hi - my son dropped his 6 mo. old SD630. images are now very overexposed or have vertical stripes throughout. He has reseated the card, removed and replaced the batteries; and checked the settings to make sure exposure wasn't changed. Any suggestions on how to proceed? Otherwise, camera has been fantastic! Thanks in advance. M

All of a sudden the images my camera is taking look totally overexposed, is it possible that i switched some setting without knowing? why is there so much light in my pictures?

Yes, there is a setting called exposure compensation, which you may have altered.
Try switching the camera back to A (Auto) mode, and see if that fixes it.
In the manual setting modes, exposure compensation will look like this:
Make sure that you haven't set the exposure compensation to +2, for example. It should usually be set on 0.

Overexposure and horizontal-striped image

No, it's not a software problem. The problem is that the shutter doesn't work so it can't control the amount of light taken so the pictures are very bright with horizontal lines. There are usualy two causes - a broken shutter cable inside the lens or the shuuter blades are stuck - may happen if the lens get wet or something adhesive gets in it. It's a hardware problem so I suggest you contact local Canon or other camera service center. It is considered a hard repair so it could get expensive. I don't think it's worth it, so I would suggest you get another camera.

Hope this helps!

I have an Olympus 1010. I took a few pics of my son, changed his outfit, and now all the pics are white, like they are overexposed. I have played with every setting on the camera with no luck

What happens if you try to reset the camera back to its factory settings. Does it still overexpose the images? TO reset the camera go to Menu - left arrow to Reset - press Ok - up arrow to Yes and press Ok. The camera will now be back in factory settings. If the images are still overexposed, it may be a repair issue with the image processing functionality.

Canon SD400: horizontal lines and daylight images are overexposed (see photo)

In both the situations the problem is with the apperture control mechanism of the camera. 1). sometimes the flexible ribbion cable carrying signal to the lense assembly get worn out, replacing the same will resolve the problem. 2) in some cases the leaf blades of the apperture gets sticky, cleaning of the same solves the problem. 3). If you happen to drop the camera then the alignment of the motor moving the blades get disturbed.

In all the cases only a good repair man can fix the problem .

Camera overexposes on daylight and recorded images have hoizontal striping

I would take it off of automatic mode and adjust it manually.

The Samsung camera I have doesn't work very well in automatic mode under indoor conditions. It will work in automatic under outdoor conditions.

Hope that helps.

Image looks with white verital striped lines in playback mode

Mine had the same problem (except the stripes are horizontal).  I sent it to Canon and sure enough it is the CCD problem that many of these have.  The good news is that it is covered under a recall and Canon will fix it free, including the shipping.
