It can be a damage sensor, a lens problem or a control board problem.

Ensure that it is not a setting problem, check that you did not set the light mode by mistake.

If it is less than one year old is covered with guaranty.

Contact Canon to validate the guaranty

I just buy a canon camera power shot 470, in just a month old, i can't take picture outdoor.


Not much to go on. Can you take pictures indoor? so if you can, can you try to make pictures with the same settings?
What settings do you use outdoor?
Please inform me.

I have a Canon Power Shot A720. Outdoor photos are beautiful. Indoor photos are always grainy/blurry...a lot of noise. I have tried the ISP feature but there are only two choices... 1. Auto or 2....


Hi Usually outdoor picture are good within small compact camera. They designed like that. But now your unit just have flash pcb defective. When flash function work, your picture will be good indoor. Regarding your flash unit would be brown fuse or replacement of flash unit. It is 50 and 50 chance. Your local repair shop would charge around $35 to 95 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!

When I take pics indoors with flash-the pics are dark. NO PROBLEM outdoors in sunlight. Batteries are fresh, no otherproblems with camera


Turn on your Flash light (push lightening with arrow symbol) when capturing indoors, this should solve the problem.

If this useful, RATE please !

My camera doesnt' work indoors. i try to take a picture and it doesnt' take when I'm in AUTO mode. However, when I'm in LANDSCAPE mode the pic will take. it seems like the flash isn't active in AUTO...


You must have a software glitch because the flash is supposed to be in the auto mode when the selector is in auto, unless you manually turn the flash off and the flash should go back to auto every time the camera is turned off and back on. Here's a work around. Turn the dial to indoor and use the flash button on the ring to set the flash to auto. In the indoor setting you can set the flash to on, off, or auto.

Shutter is not working - have solid orange light when shutter button is pressed but does not take pictures.


I have the same problem. If I am outdoors, the camera seems to work fine, but indoors, even with fresh batteries, it will not take a picture.

How do I take clear action pictures?


You can turn the dial to TV and set the shutter speed faster but you will need a bright sunny day to set it faster than 1/500. Make sure the ISO is set to auto or one of the higher settings. ISO settings are accessed by the FUNC.SET button on the back of the camera. Indoors you can turn on the flash with this setting but I doubt the flash is effective more than 15 or 20 feet. You can also try setting the dial to "kids and pets" which is a more automatic setting.

Outdoors pictures too bright


I think your ISO setting is very high or is in default.
Please shift it 100 whent you thaking outdoor snaps in daylight or normal indoor light. It will help you to produce a better photograph.
Best wishes.
