Question about Cameras
I have a Canon Powershot A470 Digital Camera and when I take pictures outside, it comes out white, like it is over exposed. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Definitely sounds like you have a bad CCD. Good news for you though, this particular model has been recognized by Canon to have a faulty CCD and will repair or replace your Canon A95 free-of-charge.
From Canon website:
"U.S. residents are kindly directed to contact the Canon Customer Support Center for further assistance at 1-800-828-4040. Support hours are Monday thru Friday - 8:00 AM to 12:00 midnight; and Saturday 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM (all times EST). Alternatively, if electronic support is preferred, please send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org".
Explain to them you have a bad CCD on your Canon A95 digital camera and that you are interested in having it serviced by them under the recall.
Good luck from darntoothysam.com!

Go to the menus and find the set to default option.
This should reset the menus and options to original.
Go to the menu section find a setting something like this... such as.. reset all to default or set to factory default or simply RESET.
Check to see if the pictures are saved to the card by taking a picture, then remove the card and play it back in either another camera or use a card reader to read the card.
If these tests shows that no picture was taken or it is all white, then the camera needs repair or has a ccd problem.
Another option is to call Canon Repair at the following page and use the 800 number for calling the repair department.
Canon has a trade-up or trade-in program which is a great way to get another camera at a good price. Canon will allow you to trade in your camera for a reasonable price against a refurbished camera plus a cost which is reasonable. A refurbished camera will come with everything it had when new, and will have been restored to original specifications.

I had this problem too, I think it's the shutter problem, it doesn't close
when a picture is taken, therefore, causing the over exposed photo...I've sent it back to canon, still waiting for the reply...

This error occured when lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting.when pressure is applied to the lens or the area surrounding the lens while handling the camera. The error may also be displayed due External shock or liquid, sand & dirt etc. enters the camera.
Avoid applying pressure to the lens and surrounding area:
1) Do not touch Lens while shooting.
2) Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case.
If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera OFF and then ON again then your device need to be repaired.
Rating the solution is highly appriciated...Good Luck.
