\015 All picture taken found with 1 white dot at the same location. How to solve this problem?\015

Answers :

The problem you are encountering is called a "dead pixel". Every ccd has several dead pixel, so it is quite normal. But I agree that it can be annoying.
The solution is to map the bad pixel and to substract them afterhands.
Go to http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page and download the latest firmware for you camera here http://mighty-hoernsche.de/.
It is a supplement to your camera that will open hundreds of possibilities, like making time-lapse recordings, doing your own scripts, shooting RAW,...as well as a feature for removing bad pixels.
All you have to do is to read! Yeah, I know, there are lots of things written :p
More specifically, here is the "how to use badpixel removal" explanation.

"overexposure" The problem arose after I visited a botanical garden and went from cold outside weather to high temperature and humidity conditions. The next day I found that the image through the viewfinder and lens appeared vastly overexposed, nearly all white. If I focused on an object, the exposure would return to normal, but the picture taken was shot through all over with fine white lines, making it indecipherable. The exposure through the lens and viewfinder has now returned to normal, but

Bright pictures I have had my Sony Cyber Shot (DSC-S650) for about 6 mo.

After almost two years, pictures taken with my Nikon D80 are showing a black dot in the middle of the photo. You can't see it in the view finder and it shows up on all the pictures I take regardless of which lens I use. The mirror inside the camera does not have the black dot on it either. Is it a problem with the sensor? How can I get it fixed?

Hi. I have had a Samsung S1050 camera for just under 3 years, and have had satisfaction in using the camera and with the picture quality for most of that time, however just within the last few weeks, the quality of photographs taken has gone rapidly downhill, with white-out when using the flash and poor light levels, and when zooming in on any picture that has recently been taken, there are noticeable horizontal lines across it through the entire photo, much like an old 70's tv.

This is to inform that I am having Casio Digital Camera Exilim EX-Z500 for last few years. The same was giving very good pictures, but last week, it suddenly started malfunctioning. Whenever, we took indoor pictures, they were coming out well as per attached pictures (CIM2831 & CIM2826) but when the camera was taken outside in the day light, though the picture was very clear on the LCD screen but after clicking, the picture is overshadowed with white light (as per other attached pictures).

Some things to try:\0121. Go into the menu and find "reset" to return to factory default settings.\0122. Check the ISO setting....you may have it set too high for outdoor pictures.\0123. Check the "exposure compensation"...it should be at "0". ... Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera
