Pictures taken outside in sunlight are white while indoor OK


Automatic settings are stuck probably due to moisture. Too expensive to fix, get another camera. Try ebay. Price start at $15 to $395 refurbished - new. And free shipping. Repairs start at $50-75 just to take a look inside.

Pictures turn out either almost invisible or deep red/blue strange colours. Inside and out. Worked perfectly then stopped abruptly. Not a battery problem I dont think. canon power shot A430 . Which...


Here's the support site url for your camera:-

http://usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_a_series/powershot_a430#DriversAndSoftware (this is for XP)

I see that there are no firmware upgrades so can only think of one thing which may help.
It may have failed but using the menu options on your camera try a reset. It may sort things out.

If you're not sure how to get there, you should be able to download a manual from there to guide you.

If it has had it, and it is quite old, you can try for a second hand camera (ebay or high street) But nearly all new budget digital cameras should meet your needs, but here's a url to a review site:-

Failing that, go for a brand you know like Canon, Sony, Fuji, Nikon etc.

Finally, My wife just got a Fuji finepix Av120, it should be about $60 in America, its a 12MPix camera and has loads of features including a "Panaromic Photo" feature, straight forward to use and score 84% in a professional review.

Overexposure


The A430 is prone to fatigue failure of a flex cable internal to the camera that causes these symptoms. Please see this other Fixya article.

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.

CANON PowerShot A430 4.0mp Digital Camera eating batteries


The A430 is a 2 battery camera, and is known for being power hungry. Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera (especially a 2 battery camera). Lithiums can also have problems. Some may also have reached their shelf life, and though right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation. Modern NiMH batteries have over five times the energy concentration of the average alkaline (yep over five times more power!).

Keep in mind rechargeable NiMH batteries will save you money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Too bright picture with white lines in them


I suggest you to write a letter to Canon and to contact your local service dealer. After some struggling, they accepted the warranty claim and repaired my camera free of charge. The problem appeared when the camera was 23 months old.
