Question about Canon Powershot SD450 / IXUS 55 Digital Camera
Don't why this problem comes out.
In picture mode, all the taken pictures are bright white, can't see anything. However, video mode still works properly. I tried all the settings. Still has the same problem. Does anyone know whether this is fixable ?
Sounds to me like your auto white balance is on the fritz.
First thing I would do is reset the camera. This is a fairly easy procedure which involves either going into your setup menu and choosing "reset," holding down the menu key for 5 seconds, or, removing the batteries for a few minutes. It may be that the firmware loading got corrupted and the camera just needs to be "rebooted," which is something that turning it on/off won't accomplish. But after which, you should have the camera reset to factory default settings.
Another tip is to go to Canon's website and look for firmware updates. Download and install them.
If that doesn't work, see what happens on the various other settings like cloudy, daylight, tungsten, etc. Then try setting a custom white balance.
If all else fails, you may be looking at a servicing/repair and with the average repair costing $180, if your warranty is expired it may cost more to repair than it's worth. The rule of thumb is that if the estimate for repair is north of 50% what you paid for it, you're better off taking that money and buying a newer and upgraded model.
