You may have the exposure compensation settings overexposing you images. Since it compensates without affecting the image prior to shooting, you won't see it until after the image is taken. Check that and the flash exposure compensation too.

SOURCE: White photos canon A470? i have a canon

I had this problem too, I think it's the shutter problem, it doesn't close
when a picture is taken, therefore, causing the over exposed photo...I've sent it back to canon, still waiting for the reply...

Change the exposure/ISO through settings.
This is the cause for over exposed images.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

SOURCE: How do I take black and white photos using a canon powershot?

Place the camera in P, Tv, Av, M, Movie, or Stitch-assist mode. Press the Func/Set button, and scroll down to the "My Colors" icon on the left side (second or third icon down, should show "My Colors Off" at the bottom of the LCD). Now use the left/right buttons to select "B/W", and press the Func/Set button again.

SOURCE: canon powershot A470 problem when

The shutter flex cable inside the lens is broken. Happens to all cameras from Canon A4xx series. At day the images will be overexposed with horizontal lines on it, but it could look better at dark / night. The FLEX has to be replaced. Canon doesn't supply new flex cables for these, but there are some cheap copies on ebay. But as these brake very often, I wouldn't suggest you investing money in this camera, because it will brake again sooner or later.

Canon powershot G12 takes pictures but the LCD screen isn't showing anything


Is it only the pictures? What about other normal video function? If you don't see anything at all, the LCD is damaged (dry). You could have it replaced at a service center but check out the cost first.

We have a Canon Powershot G12 camera. When taking a picture a red flashing camera appears at the lower left side of screen, the picture comes out white. What do we need to do?


That is the camera shake icon. When you press the shutter button halfway in low light conditions where camera shake is likely, a flashing (g0035839.gif) will appear. You need to change your settings to compensate, usually setting the camera on P or Auto will usually get you an acceptable image. Check the user manual or download it from the Canon website.

Why won't the screen on my Canon G12 display an image so I can take a photo??


The Display button toggles the information shown on the LCD (or turns it off entirely). Make sure you haven't inadvertently pressed it and turned off the display. It works as follows:

  • Press once for Normal view in LCD viewfinder
  • Press twice to turn on Rule of Thirds grid lines
  • Press three times to turn off LCD display
  • Press and hold 1 sec. to decrease/increase LCD brightness

Hi! The screen of my canon powershot G12 is black, even when I take a picture, the picture is black. But I can see previous pictures. What should I do?


Get it serviced by a professional shop. It's probably the CCD that is giving you a problem, those are the classic symptoms of that sensor failing.

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

LCD screen and pictures go completly white


The camera is defective. But as you've only had the camera three months it still is under warranty. Canon is usually very responsive to these type of problems and will bend over backwards to make things right (probably the most responsive of the camera companies).

Call 1-800-OK-CANON to resolve this issue.

Regardless of setting, picture is extremly over-exposed


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Although it's not showing on the LCD, recommend contacting Canon anyways (it can't hurt). Please check the following two links for more info:
