Canon Powershot A630 - dark image in auto mode

I have a Canon Powershot A630 and it will only take dark photos in auto mode. It seems other owners have had this problem too. Does anyone know of a simple solution yet? or is it a big repair job, in which case better to buy another camera? Would be grateful for any advice.

Could it have something to do with "white balance"? http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=145&modelid=14108#SupportDetailAct

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. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=145&modelid=14108#SupportDetailAct

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

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.

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.
