The camera has a capacitor that runs a higher voltage for the circuitry. The one in yours does not hold the needed voltage to acquire a perfect exposure. The cost to repair it out weighs the cost of new

Hi. Try to adjust the brightness to low. It might be set to high that is why you are getting extreme light.

my mom did something to my canon A460. it was okay before but now everytime i take photos i get all white images reply to this comment
by James DeRuvo (03/24/2010) a quick reset coulddo the trick. But I'd also Check w canon because there was a rash of faulty CCDs that hit them back then. If it's part of there all they'll fix or replace for free.

It may not be moms fault at all. It could be you have a faulty CCD, so check with Canon and see if they will help fix it. Here's their website: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/about_canon/standard_display/contact_us Good luck, and hope this helps.

My Canon PowerShot A460 cam is working well until yesterday, the biggest festival here in our place took place. teh flash, the lcd screen, etc is working... but, when i took pictures, the lcd screen turns...


Please try and reset the mode of the image to see if the LCD does not go blank when shown to higher light. Also if there is no issue with the indoor pictures then it is possible that the auto light detection is giving a higher value to reset the image balancing. Shift from Auto to manual mode and try.

Overexposed pictures


usually all the digital cameras have a filter to diminishes the quantity of light passed through objective. This filter is enabled by a small relay and that relay is powered by a mobile wire from the mother board. Because this wire are always moved every time when the zoom is used ,this action can cause the interruption of that wire.
The second possibility is that relay to get stuck and can`t be able to switch the filter.

No image display on camera mode


There are different settings. You can view the past photos because you are using the viewer for that, but you have a setting off in the menu. You need to turn on view photo or preview photo after picture taken. I am not sure what it is in the Canon line, but look in your manual for the setting.

Canon powershot A460 camera not recognized by


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Which mode are you shooting in?
You may have adjusted the exposure compensation so everything is washed out.

Whatever the cause, your images are overexposed. Try shooting in auto and the camera should take over the settings, but if you are in other modes, check your shutter speed, aperture, & ISO also. These are all things that can cause too much light and wash the picture out/OVEREXPOSE.

If you have any other questions or can give me more details, just ask!

Hope this helps!
