Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

OverExposure Even in AUTO mode

I own this camera, and it worked fine for a friend of mine last week and the whole year that I've owned it. However, all of a sudden outdoor pictures are COMPLETELY overexposed to the point that the whole screen is white when pictures are taken. I tried wrestling with it in manual also and still there is too much light exposure.
This came on all of a sudden. I didn't drop it recently, and I keep it in a case at all times.
Please help, thanks

Usually it's the opening in the lens doing it. it may be stuck open and not closing down during bright sunshine. The only thing you can do is drop the exposure down. Canon offeres a repair for about $100 or a refurbished SD750 for the same money

I am using this camera from last 3 years. It was working fine. Suddenly, a problem occurred. Now whenever I select the Auto mode, it is set to video option instead of still image. I have formatted...


I'm have the exact same problem. Purchased the camera 3.5 years ago. Recently needed to shoot a video, when finished I set the camera back to Auto and it stayed in video. Portrait mode shows manual, all other modes work as assigned. I've noticed at least TWO other posters having the same problem within the last couple of months. It's as though this camera (mfg. 2007) has a Trojan program from the factory to make us buy newer models.

Other than resetting, is there a way to flush and reload the firmware?

Overexposure when taking pictures outside.


Even though everything is on auto, it's still possible to change some settings too high such as the ISO or EXPOSURE COMPENSATION. Check those out. Also, try a camera reset to return to factory default settings. You can find that entry in the setup menu.

I am getting over expose in auto mode in my canon


An slr has a mirror that needs to flip up at the moment of exposure so you don't get anything on the screen. As for the overexposure, you need to experiment with the ISO settings, the white balance and even the exposure compensation.

Lens won't extend when switched on


Hi,
I would like to know what mode are you clicking these photos in.. because overexposure is due to either slow shutter speeds or large aperture. Try setting the camre mode according to the surrounding light conditions.. for example, no need of flash when you are clicking pictures in broad day light, instead of setting the camera on Auto mode, try using Portrait mode for short distance (5 to 6 meters away) objects etc..
Let me know if that fixes the issue.

And important .. Do not forget to rate the solution :D

Thanka and Regards,

Overexposed photos in otherwise normal settings in casio ex-s500


It is the shutter (or at least it was for me) I found a simple test here: http://www.mydc.com.tw/repair/knowledge_en/casio-exilim-ex-s600-overexposure-t17.html
I repaired it myself, but it took me a whole afternoon and lots of patience.
The hard part is taking the camera apart, once I got to the shutter I just activated it manually so to dislodge any pieces that might have gotten jammed, then placed it back together again and it worked! :).
It's really hard to take apart, it's like a puzzle sometimes, to find which screws are keeping it together. I also had a bit of hard time when it came to put the zoom back together again.
But I guess it beats throwing the camera away.
I'm still puzzled on how the CCD works so that an overexposure would make horizontal overexposed lines, but everything points to that. Fixed shutter, lines be gone.
