Hello Sir,\015\012
\015\012If your camera didn't received any physical damage, then It would only be the settings, than should be done before taking Pictures.\015\012Actually the lightening effects and the brightness level is different for different locations and timing. I would recommend to change the Brightness and exposure settings according to your current requirements and then take pictures. \015\012Also do check the flash settings! If also effects the picture's exposure...\015\012
\015\012Hope this is all that your device requires to put perfect results,\015\012

\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012for using FixYa. It’s\015\012possible your camera is in a 'power save' mode and the LCD is turned off to\015\012save battery power. Try pressing the "Disp" button once and see if it\015\012turns on. If not, press it again... it should turn on.

Dark pictures I have a Canon EOS REbel T2 with the standard 28-90 lens. It had been working fine, but now my pictures are (almost all) coming out very dark and grainy. Further, I note that if I turn the camera 90 degrees to that a "portrait" picture -- 6" tall and 4" wide, I see a dark rectangle in the picture in the bottom right quadrant. I always set the camera to full program (the green rectangle). I have been using Fuji 400 speed file of late. Do you have any idea what I"m doing wrong?

Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure. ... Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera

My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.

Sounds like a loose LCD connector. It does not sound like a image sensory problem to me. You will have to disassemble it , remove the connector cable then replug it back into the panel and that should do the trick. However I suggest that you take th ... Digital Cameras
