You have the white balance set to the wrong setting. Go in and set it to auto white balance and see if your pics improve.

not sure what you are saying "cannot take a picture outdoor" - can you take a picture indoor?
if it's just a month old then return for warranty service - do not try anything yourself it may void warranty

I just buy a canon camera power shot 470, in just a month old, i can't take picture outdoor.


Not much to go on. Can you take pictures indoor? so if you can, can you try to make pictures with the same settings?
What settings do you use outdoor?
Please inform me.

If i click for photo in day its too brightness because of that i we cant see images properlly please ressolve my problem !!


Turn off your flash light manually and avoid to capture with strong light in front of your lens (sun or lamp)
When you take picture outdoors with much light, try to shade your lens with something, use umbrella or even your own hand shadow to make a shade.

If useful, RATE please !

My camera displays a "white screen" when i take photos "outdoors" or during daytime outside


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).

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:

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.

I had the same problem, but all of a sudden it went away. Did it go away for you yet?

Outdoor shots are blue


Hey VickylnStL,
What I believe is going on is your white balance setting has been set to incandescent light which on your camera is a light bulb. For outdoor shots you should have the camera set to auto white balance, or have the white balance symbol set to the sun icon or the cloud icon depending on the conditions outside. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

You probably needed to reset the manual white balance. Lighting conditions can change considerably in 10 minutes at sunrise and sunset.
