    Default I have a problem in my Canon PowerShot A460

    The main problem is when I take a photos outdoor or somewhere at normal light, the photo becomes a like a white paper, Noting visible or clear there, But at night the quality is OK. The video is excellent.

    Here is the links to each problem:
    Photo taken at day: Day on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Photo taken at night: Night on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    When I see a photo in Camera, it shows some lines but when I export to PC, no lines are there.
    I restored my camera to default setting but nothing changed.
    Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

    Do you have the EXIF information for your pictures?

    It usually contains the shutter speed, aperture, EV values and so on. Only that it helps to narrow down what the problem could be.

    The EXIF data on those two images don't appear to be totally out of wack. I think there may be a problem with your camera. What modes are you using when you take pictures? I'm not very familar with this camera but does it have an exposure metering scale?

    It looks something like this

    -2--- -1 --- 0 --- 1 -- 2

    It looks to me that you might have a light leak someplace in your camera -- light seems to be entering someplace other than the lens. In daylight, it lets a lot of light in, completely washing out the pic. In nighttime, there is less ambient light, so it takes an OK pic -- but the pic still looks to me like it has been washed out by stray light hitting the lens.

    ttosifa might be right. Has the camera ever been dropped?

    Here is the exif data from flickr:

    first one:
    1/60 f2.8 ISO200

    second one:
    1/60 f2.8 ISO200

    Since the camera tried to use the exact same settings for both pictures there is definitely something wrong somewhere. Which setting do you have the mode dial turned to? Make sure it is on auto (the camera icon) and not manual (the camera icon with a big M next to it).

    Yep didn't even think about a light leak with a digital but this certainly could be the case. Have you dropped this camera before? How does it look physically?

    It is on Auto, the big M.

    NO, I have not drop the camera, but one of my friends took it to a tour, when he replied me it was OK, I photographed some but suddenly it started white photos.
