You might have a problem with the sensor; Maybe you can test it; try taking photos in brightly to see if it have the same problem. (or using the flash; I suppose taking videos will not have any issues?)

SOURCE: Horizontal lines taking photos

If the viewer is working fine, then it is not the same CCD problems. If you sent this in to Canon for repair, I am sure they will charge you for it.

SOURCE: White photos canon A470? i have a canon

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...

Try taking it into a photographic shop (or just Boots) and ask them if they could clean the lens.
If cleaning the lens doesn't work, then you have a faulty camera and if this happens, you will have to get a new one if the warrentyu is out.

This sounds like a stuck shutter, with the shutter stuck open. See this link, trying Fix #5A. If Fix 5A does not work, your camera is then likely experiencing a broken ribbon cable to the shutter control. Unfortunately, repairing that cable would be more costly than the value of the camera. Also, repairing the cable yourself is not recommended as finding a replacement cable would be just as costly, and the actual repair is very difficult.

When I take a picture it displays white in the daytime and in the nights it takes pictures but has a few horizontal lines


Sounds like the aperture is stuck open and not able to adjust for different light conditions.

It can be difficult to see, but look down into the lens from the front and turn on the camera. Do you see a small circle open and close in the very center of the lens? Try pressing the shutter button half way (not all the way or the flash will go off in your face) while looking into the lens. See any movement? Try this in light and dark conditions.

The lens assembly will most likely need to be replaced. I took the liberty of looking up the repair price on the usa.canon.com website for you and it looks like they may repair it for a $58 flat rate!! Call 1-800-OK-CANON and ask for repairs.

Hope this helps!

This sounds like there is a problem with your camera's shutter mechanism and won't be resolved by changing your settings. You'll have to get your unit serviced by an authorized Canon service center. Hope this helps!

Canon powershot A470 problem when i click photo then white image come? but when i use it night it is normal. but during daylight or with sunlight.. white image appear....and every time i take a picture...


The shutter flex cable inside the lens is broken. Happens to all cameras from Canon A4xx series. At day the images will be overexposed with horizontal lines on it, but it could look better at dark / night. The FLEX has to be replaced. Canon doesn't supply new flex cables for these, but there are some cheap copies on ebay. But as these brake very often, I wouldn't suggest you investing money in this camera, because it will brake again sooner or later.

You have to ensure that the camera is not set to night mode as this can affect the quality of the pictures you take during day time.
De-activating the night mode will allow it take normal pictures during daytime.
