Question about Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photos are completely washed out in daylight

I've never had a problem with my SD300, but about a month ago the photos I take in daylight are completely washed out. I've always taken photos in the mountains in strong sunlight and have never experienced this problem. When I turn on the camera and look at the screen everything is fine, but when I push on the shutter halfway, the photo becomes totally whited/washed out, and the resulting photo is that way, as well.

I haven't messed with the settings or anything. The rest of the photos I take (indoors or with low light) are totally fine. Please help me! I love taking landscape photos and this problem is making it impossible. Thank you!

Your request to add a contact has taken longer then expected to complete . the operation may have succeeded . please check your messenger list. how can we solve this problem ?


Welcome to the annoyances of Yahoo. From time to time they will be doing updates or fixes and things like this occur. Basically you have to be patient and wait a few days to see if it took it and then try again if it hasn't saved it.

Yahoo for the most part is pretty good. It does do weird and annoying things about once a year or so. I've ended up with emails from 6 months ago as well as your problem. Usually 2-3 days later it works just fine again. Sometimes a bit longer but it always ends up working when they finish what ever they were doing.

My Canon PowerShot SD300 was recording sound perfectly a few days ago. Now whenever I record a video and play it back there is no sound except for static. I have resetted the settings to factory defaults...


When you play the video back and get no sound are you doing this on your camera or on the computer? I have the same camera, and noticed that when I playback something I've recorded I don't have sound either, mind you I don't have static either. But once I've uploaded the video onto my pc the sound is there.

My screen has always been fine up until a few months ago when it suddenly went very blurry and out of focus. Please help!


Please check the photos taken by the camera on the PC and if they are seen to be good then the camera optics are fgood specially the CCD.
If so the LCD is faulty and you might need to replace.
however if the pictures taken are HAZY then the CCD is defective .Might need to estimate the cost of a new one.

Daylight photos come with BLUE filter effect


Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Most digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is color balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in flourescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto, if your camera has it. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.
