Could not get you. What is the light you are asking about? is it the flash? If your flash isn't working then you must visit the service centre. but if only pictures are dark at night then you should adjust your "ISO Settings".

If the day time pictures are good then the setttings for the night shots must be selected according to the light intensity. Please check on the menu for night settings if you are intenting a low light shoot. Also make sure that the flash is active, in most of the present day samml cameras, the flash THROW is low and so the SUBJECT must not be too far as the picture will appear dark. So when using flash in a dark scene have the subject within 5-7 feet as the small flash will not be able to capture the openess. Also you can use a SLAVE flash to counter this and give a better prospective.
It sounds like the Infrared LED are not on (there are 8 of them on the fornt of the unit), it should automatically turns on when it senses dark scene. You can find out at night using the digital camera pointing at the LEDs, you should see white glow on your digital camera.
The problem can be caused by the power supply that supplies the power the LED assemblies or the detector circuits that suppose to turn on the LED when the surrounding area is dark has failed.
my friend ur CCD is getting weak this is the first sign of the problem when u get lines hor and vertcal and sun light pics are blurred and over exposed after that this problem extends to the indoor shots as well pls confirm it thru service centre for 100% ,
pls do rate me i know it is a difficult moment but i helped u in diagnosing ur problem without wasting time
If the screen stays dark at all other times except during playback mode, then i have the same problem. Canon troubleshoot site said that it was a fixable problem if its what they think it is. Like 90 bucks just to look at it though. And if its not what they thought, there would be additional charges
If the pink & white pics are a small percentage of your photos you should probably just live with it. I have 6 cameras in operation for 2 yrs & they have about 10% like this. Great pics otherwise. Probably caused by the angle of the sun or reflection of the flash off a nearby object.
Try first to reset your camera. Press the menu button, go over to setup, go down to reset, press the right arrow, highlight reset and press set. Don't worry it won't erase any of the pictures on your memory card. If that doesn't work you can try and manually set the white balance on your camera and I would recommend sending it into repairs if that doesn't work since it's taking nighttime pictures fine. :)
