Question about Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

Open Question

Dark pictures with a flash

The "auto" mode does not take good pcitures. It's like the camera cannot distinguish when it should use flash and when not. Then, even with the flash on manual, the pictures turn out dark when you have a decent amount of light for the picture. When the room is dark, forget a picture at all. The best pictures are when you have good light inside or out and the flash is manually turned off. The camera worked great for about 3 years; then, suddenly this summer the dark side came out!

Try a camera reset. Go into the setup menu and scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions.

Very dark video output and view through the view screen, no matter where the ISO dial is set. The Auto, C1 and C2 mode for Photos is just as dark. I can take good pictures only in P (Program) mode, al


This is most often a problem with the imaging sensor and no reset is going to repair the part. Also, if replacing it, it needs to be properly calibrated after installed. If you need help with this, this is the place we recommend for the Canons: www.CamerasAndParts.com They are the best for these models, they only work on Canons and they are excellent for repairs. They have a service package for about $90 which takes care of an image problem as you have or you can try emailing them first. As far as service and the quality of work, I wouldn't go anywhere else but them for a Powershot. They are the best for these cameras. Good luck

Falsh Problem with Power Shot a640


I had the exact same problem. You'll need to send it back to Canon. It'll cost you $87-94, but they'll clean it up, get the flash working, and make it new again. It's a good camera worth getting fixed.
