Question about Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera
Canon A630 Indoor pictures are too dark in Auto, Flash seems to work but picture looks like no-flash . I have two of these cameras, both have this malfunction which occured several months apart
Try using night mode indoors. otherwise, simply get into setup and go back to factory settings, and use AUTO mode. hope it helps

learning to use light metering correctly can have its challenge.
the manual will guide you on how to set up to read light from the subject. spot metering a dark area will cause general overexposure, or a washed out look. spot metering a bright area will cause a dark image. if you are on spot meter and shoot two people standing together against a bright lit background, your meter will see between them if they are centered, and read all that bright background, setting the camera to a less sensitive combination of aperture / shutter speed, resulting in a dark image. use field averaging meter setting and be sure you are metering the subject and not the background. try shooting a wall that is fairly clear of other colors and uniform it light hitting it, you should have a correctly exposed image. since it works in other modes (at least 1, anyway) then it is unlikely you have an exposure compensation issue. that is the only other non defect issue that would cause your problem.
once you confirm that you have these settings correct and still get a dark image, its time to have it serviced.

You have to unscrew the left side of the camera (if you're looking at the back of the camera, the side that is right beside the flash). Then, at the very top, with a tiny screw driver, just gently tap the black flash compartment and it should work after that. I've had the flash problem twice in the past year and both times I got it to work again by taping on it. Hope it helps!

but if you open it up the flash capacitor inside could realy bite you

Press the button at the back of the camera designated with a lightning symbol. When you pressed it once, it will give you an option for lightning bolt which means flash ON and to turn it off, select the lightning bold with line through it.
