Question about Canon PowerShot A410 Digital Camera

Open Question

Overexposed outdoor shots.

I used my a410 canon for about 3 years ago. It has a good shot since i first used it and i can capture clear and fantastic outdoor and indoor shots. Now my outdoor shots turnes into white as in no detail at all but white. and the thing that bothers me more is there is so many horizontal lines in my digicam that blocks the quality of the picture itself once the picture is taken. (some pictures only)

First make sure the mode selector dial is set to the red camera without an M next to it (ie you're in Auto mode and NOT in manual mode). If so...

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 A410 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. If after many tries this does not work, then consider trying Fix #5a on the site. But do so with the camera turned off and the lens retracted to lessen the chance of damaging the lens mechanism.

SOURCE: Overexposure and horizontal-striped image

Hi!
No, it's not a software problem. The problem is that the shutter doesn't work so it can't control the amount of light taken so the pictures are very bright with horizontal lines. There are usualy two causes - a broken shutter cable inside the lens or the shuuter blades are stuck - may happen if the lens get wet or something adhesive gets in it. It's a hardware problem so I suggest you contact local Canon or other camera service center. It is considered a hard repair so it could get expensive. I don't think it's worth it, so I would suggest you get another camera.

Hope this helps!

My canon S2IS takes great shots indoors but in natural light, as outdoors, the pics all look white - overexposed


You need to add a Neutral Density Filter appropriate to your camera. This will remove the excess glare and reflection from your shots. See a good camera shop of look at an accessories list for your camera to select the proper one that matches the screw threads of your camera.

I bought my camera 4 years ago but till now still i cannot get a picture of me in my canon power shot A410, the problem is i dont know the steps in setting timer to get me a picture. can you please teach...


Press the FUNC/SET button. Use the cursor keys to select Drive Mode. Use left/right to select the desired delay and press FUNC/SET. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button.

Full details are in the "Using the Self-Timer" section of the advanced guide. (page 35 in my copy). If you need any of the manuals, you can download them from the manufacturer's web site at

I can't figure out how to set the 10 second timer for my Canon A410..HELP!!!!


With the camera in the shooting mode:

1. Press the Func/Set button
2. Use the up or down arrows to select the Drive mode (normally a single square)
3. Use the left or right arrows to select the clock/10 icon (10 sec delay)
4. Press the Func/Set button again

To cancel, follow the same instructions but select the single shot mode (single square) at step 3

Are you sure that you are in full "auto" mode when you are taking your pictures? Make sure that the mode selector is set to the first red camera (without the M) right next to the little blue arrow.

If you already are in full auto, 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).

Your camera is not capable of taking 15 second exposures. Instead try putting it in manual mode, turn off the flash, take it in a darkened room, take the picture, and open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are blinking. Give it several tries, but note that the chances may be very slim for success as the shutter symptoms suggest that it is stuck open.

Continuous video capture


Hi, The A410 can only record a maximum of 3 minutes. That sucks becasue it doesn't matter what resolution you use, it will max out at 3 minutes. NewMediaMan
