Question about Canon PowerShot A410 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My camera went through an X-ray machine--It was inside the case, and inside my bag. Would this cause the screen to stay white?

I need the Manual for the White Sewing machine model 1418.

go to this website link and type in W1418 to locate your manual as a free download. It is available there.

You can download it as a pdf file, it will take a few seconds to load to screen so just wait. Then Save it to your PC. A good idea is to print it out (double sided if you can) and get it bound with covers so you've got a good hard copy to keep with the machine. I saw a great idea to keep manuals and machines together: get a large ziplok bag bigger than the manual and attach to the sewing machine case handle with a zip tie in one corner. Then you can drop the manual back into the bag when not needed and it will always stay with the machine!

Hope this helps you out, 4 thumbs up if so. Happy Sewing, Tally Girl

I want to ask a friend to bring a few packs of Instax film from the US for me and I want to know how the x ray machines might affect the undeveloped film. My friend would bring them here to me in Mexico...

Films 800 and higher (800, 1600, 3200 iso), should not go thru the x-ray. I recently took a lot of films on holidays in the US, the security staff were very helpful and understanding. I put my high iso films and instax in a clear ziplock bag, and asked for hand inspection, they do a swab to check for whatever they are screening for. The x-ray machine has a sign that says films under 800 are OK in the machine, that means 400, 200, 100 etc. not 800.

There is a risk if you put it in the checked baggage, as sometimes this is x-rayed, and that's supposed to be even stronger x-ray.

So, take your film in a clear ziplock to the security people and ask for hand inspection due to 800 iso. Couple of times I was asked extra questions, they asked to see the camera, I explained it's big in Japan. Another time they asked me to open the package, opening the cardboard package, and even opening the silver wrapper is OK because the film is still safe inside it's black plastic cartridge.

When taking pictures outside the view screen after picture taken appears as a bright burst of white light. Inside picture appear fine. Any ideas?

let me see if i understand. if you llok at the screen it looks ok, but after you take the picture it will record only a white bright image.....

in some cases you can easily fix this by goining into your camera option and restoring default settings. it is the exposure setting .

if you camera still giving you just black white images the light sensor in the machine ahs gone bad, it needs to be replace.

Water damage, white screen on my camera

Let the camera dry out completely. If it was not salt water it may be ok. Put it in a warm dry place for a long time. It may take weeks for the insides to get dry.....remove the battery while doing this if possible.

Canon S2 IS - LCD screen is white after taking an outside picture

the image is all white or has lines through it.Definitely sounds like a repair issue, and has been a previous problem with the camera in the past. There is a defect in the sensor of the camera, and happens quite frequently in this model. I would try and contact Canon about it, and see if they'll repair it for free. If not, its probably going to cost more than the camera is worth to repair it.

How to reset?

The button I think you are talking about is the bag switch. It is located in the bottom right corner where you put the bag. If the bag does not cover it, the machine will not run.
Also, when the machine cuts off when the bag is full, you have to push the power switch off and back on to reset the full bag switch located in the switch control housing inside the machine.

Camera got damp (not even wet) & now won't turn on.

It is possible that the there is still some water inside and it will not evaporate because it is enclosed. Even if the water evaporates, it may leave some conductive residue. The water may be on some circuit boards and inside some connectors.

If the camera is worth servicing, I would not recommend that you open the camera yourself and un-assemble the boards and connectors to clean everything. If you are not experienced at this type of work, it is very easy to do more damage from handling the boards and connectors. These cameras are very delicate inside.

There is the other aspect, that if the water got on to some sensitive components on the circuit board, there can be some damage to the the parts. The water being conductive can act like a short and cause permanent damage. The fix in this case would be to change the circuit board(s) that are in failure.

Your best bet would be to give the camera to the manufacture service rep to have an estimate for repair. If your camera is under warranty, and they find water damage inside, the warranty will be void.

Next time you go water rafting or out in the rain with your camera, make sure you get a model that you can invest in the water-proof kit for your camera. It will be a lot cheaper than fixing the camera or buying a new one.

LCD screen is white

It is not likely that the x-ray machine goofed up your camera's circuit. It is more likely that the vibration on the plane loosened a flex connector, possibly a chip has failed. A reputable repair shop is the answer for this.
