Re: Dark image....even using flash.

That doesn't really answer the question. What settings are you checking? In our case, the problem happens in different settings not just the auto mode.

I have a canon powershot a630. It suddenly won't take pictures in auto mode. Orange light in front stays lit and arrow on display screen flashes. It will take pics in some other modes (P, Tv, Av,...

See this blog article. If you don't notice any gaps, and tightening all the loose screws doesn't help, then the next likely problem is the flash unit itself is burned out. If so, this would require professional repair to correct.

How do I turn off the flash for the canon powershot a630?

First of all, the flash can not be turned off in "Auto" mode. You can turn it off in any mode other than Auto. Would recommend Program "P" mode, which is very similar to Auto, but allows you to modify certain minor items such as flash and white balance.

Rotate your mode dial to "P", then press the button on the back with the "lightning bolt" icon. Press until the lightning bolt with a slash shows up on your LCD screen. The flash is now turned off in Program mode. Try taking a picture.

Remember, if in low light conditions you'll need to keep the camera extra steady without flash to get a clear picture. Recommend placing the camera on a table or chair (or even better, use a tripod), then using its autotimer to snap the picture.

Try a camera reset. Go into the setup menu and scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions.

Canon S3 IS - Images are darker or underexposed even in normal ambient light. Started happening just recently

If you are shooting using AUTO mode, maybe the settings were changed to a manual modes. If so, check for settings. Flash fires automatically only in AUTO. On manual modes you must force the flash to fire.

Almost same problem

It looks like the flash capacitor cannot be charged - could be a dead flash fuse. You should contact your local Canon service center.

Canon Powershot A630 - dark image in auto mode

Could it have something to do with "white balance"?

When the shooting mode is set to (Auto), the white balance will be applied automatically. However, with the (Auto) mode, the camera may not reproduce the natural color of the subject.

If this don't help, try their website and see if you can troubleshoot it.

If all fails, buy a newer Canon Powershot. I've tried the newer models and they seem good.

Dark image....even using flash.

The problem here is likely the auto setting. Put it to sunny, clear day instead of indoor picture and you should be ok. Also, point it at neutral colored objects when you take the picture and allow it time to adjust by holding the button in partway before depressing it fully.
