Are you asking about brightness as viewed on the LCD, or are you asking about increasing brightness on the actual image taken? If it's the image, there are two special modes that you can select on your mode dial. They are "Night Scene", "Night Snaphot", and "Indoor". A description of both, along with your camera's other special settings, may be found here:
"Night Scene" can be selected directly from the dial. It's the one showing a person standing under a star. Note that Night Scene should be used with a tripod to reduce the potential for blurriness.
"Night Snapshot" works almost as well, but does not require a tripod. It can be accessed by selecting SCN on the dial, and then pressing right or left with the selection buttons until it shows in the menu. The camera will remember this setting the next time you select SCN. I usually keep my camera always set to this setting so that I merely have to select SCN to use it.
"Indoor" works very well in those large rooms that may produce dark backgrounds when taking photos. It also does not require a tripod. It's accessed the same way as "Night Snapshot" (Select SCN, then right/left until selected). This is another good setting that I like to keep sometimes set in SCN.
Try all three settings, (and don't forget all the others too). Think you'll be impressed.

have opened my camera. (it was useless anyway, right?) GUess what I found: in the lens-assembly there is a ribbon cable that controls the two solenoids, one of the shutter, one of the diafragm (or what it's called). This one is broken, the electric circuits are discontinued and so there is no control. It seems to be a design error since it broke exactly where the ribbon bends at 180 degrees almost with no place for a loop most of the focussing time. Can anyone find out where to find a NEW replacement ribbon cable?

SOURCE: problem when taking images
Set the camera to shooting mode.
Press the function/set button
Scroll down to find the automatic exposure item
Set this to 0 and press the function set button again.
Let me know how this works for you and let me know if I can help any further. If you like my response, please rate it appropriately and thank you for coming to FixYa.

First make sure you are taking pictures in auto, and not in manual (make sure the mode selector dial is not on the little red camera with an M). If it's not...
A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:
Now the A430 is not capable of taking 15 second exposures as recommended for the fix. Instead try setting the camera to manual mode, turn off the flash, got to a darkened room, and take a picture. Open the battery door while the red and yellow light are flashing. Repeat as the fix recommends, but please note that there may be only a small hope that this will work as the shutter may be stuck in the open position. This is harder to get unstuck than a closed shutter.
If the above doesn't work, consider attempting Fix 5a listed on the web page. There is some risk of damaging your camera with this fix, that's why I hesitate to recommend it until last.
