We have a canon powershot A410 digital camera with 3.2 mega pixels (purchased brand new in fall 2007) and recently, whenever we take pictures outside, they come out completely white (overexposed). The video function of the camera still works perfectly, and for awhile, the inside pictures seemed to work out okay, but now they are partially overexposed/with white blotchy areas.

It sounds like you have a broken / faulty camera. But try resetting it back to factory settings. Open the menu or setup menu, and find the reset option, do that and see if it improves, or it might say defaults or factory settings.\015\012\015\0 ... Digital Cameras

Pictures a very overexposed. Inside I can shoot without a flash at 400 ISO and they come out right. Outside they turn white. Also the shutter speed won't register. I can set it at 125 or even 500 and it comes out at about 1/30 or 1/60 of a second. Lower shutter speeds are actually lower. This happened a day after I cleaned my sensor. Could that be the problems?


Have you set the 400 ISO, or do you have the camera on Auto ISO?\012\012\012Go back to your setup menus and set the Sensitivity to the lowest ISO value possible.  Now set the White Balance to Auto. Exit the menus.Now set the camera t ... Pentax *ist D Digital Camera

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

I have a canon powershot sd1100 IS and bought it on ebay back in the fall. I havent had any problems and it was in great condition. One night I went to erase some pictures before going out- the camera was fine. About an hour later, I took the camera out of my purse and when I turned it on I saw the screen was white whether I went to take a picture or view one. I can still take pictures and load them on my computer but I can't see what I'm taking because of the white. Is there a way to fix this?

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
