I have a 3 week old Canon PowerShot A4050 camera. Almost all of my pictures (8 out of 10) are blank, white images. Video shooting is OK, but only occasionally good stills - does anyone know what can cause this?
It's either a defective camera or the exposure is being set way too high (either by defective hardware or manual settings and user error). If you can post samples of some of the photos that did come out as well as one of the ones that didn't, it might help.
If the images that came out were much darker scenes than the ones you took that came out white, it is probably user settings on the camera causing problems.
Try setting the camera to the mode with the little green square and make sure that the exposure compensation is set to 0 and see if you still have a problem as well. If you don't, it is a user setting, if you do, then it is probably the camera.
