Are you asking about brightness as viewed on the LCD, or are you asking about increasing brightness on the actual image taken? If it's the image, there are two special modes that you can select on your mode dial. They are "Night Scene", "Night Snaphot", and "Indoor". A description of both, along with your camera's other special settings, may be found here:

http://www.canon.co.jp/imaging/mode/camera/scene-e.html

"Night Scene" can be selected directly from the dial. It's the one showing a person standing under a star. Note that Night Scene should be used with a tripod to reduce the potential for blurriness.

"Night Snapshot" works almost as well, but does not require a tripod. It can be accessed by selecting SCN on the dial, and then pressing right or left with the selection buttons until it shows in the menu. The camera will remember this setting the next time you select SCN. I usually keep my camera always set to this setting so that I merely have to select SCN to use it.

"Indoor" works very well in those large rooms that may produce dark backgrounds when taking photos. It also does not require a tripod. It's accessed the same way as "Night Snapshot" (Select SCN, then right/left until selected). This is another good setting that I like to keep sometimes set in SCN.

Try all three settings, (and don't forget all the others too). Think you'll be impressed.

    And sorry if the intor to the above sounds confusing (two modes vs three). Had forgot about Indoor mode until the very end, and forgot to update the previous writing. So there are three modes to brighten up dark scenes, not two.

Canon a620. no image on display and pictures turn out black


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, sometimes with lines, 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 this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Currently my Canon Powershot A620 takes blank images. It turns on and I can view through my view finder pictures that were taken prior to...however, when I try to take pictures at the present, the images...


It is possible that your Imager/ the CCD is not working or defective. This might need closer look to confirm and I wish it will be betterr to have this checked at the Canon service centre, take and estimate before you think of a repair. If you have not used the camera for a long time keep it ON for some hours and try, If you have exposed the camera to High intensity light/ direct sunlight, it ispossible to damage the device. So check this out. Good day

I have the same basic problem.


The camera sensor is bad. It can be replaced if you still have warranty. If its out of warranty, get a new camera - the cost to repair = cost of new camera.

Hey EGrett,
I am providing a link below to the drivers for your camera. The manufacturer does not show a download of the software available for your operating system, but you could probably get a copy of it by calling Canon. I hope this helps!
