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. By the way, recommend trying the pencil tapping method described in this article for a stuck "open" shutter.

First check your manual ,reset setup to factory settings,if no result,
See other similar fault,probably the shutter flexible cable is broken as after many lens movements cable breaks ,shutter stays open,replacement is labor extensive,cable is burried in lensblock ,or change whole lensblock.
Technical skill required.

Outdoor pictures is not working..


I'm not familiar with the A430 specifically, but all digital cameras have exposure settings for the type of picture you're taking (outdoor scene, portrait, shadows, etc.). Since you can take good interior pictures, I think you're likely set on a "indoor" or "shadow" setting rather than "auto". Some of the icons are a little confusing but "auto" is the best setting for most situations. If the camera is set to auto already, then I would suspect that the light sensor is defective and contacting Canon Support is your best option.

Kodak C643 died...


the pics on the memory card should still be fine.
you will have to purchase a memory card reader
they are inexpensive ,for example a usb memory sd reader goes for around 25.00
be sure it can read sd memory
the memory card is ejected next to the batteries.

when you insert them in the reader it will read as another drive and you will see your pics.

Poor quality images outdoors


try setting your camera's auto balance into Automatic or Outdoor. So the camera could adjust the light or diable flash.
