I have a Sanyo Xacti VPC-E6EX camera which worked fine until yesterday. I now have a problem.When I try to photograph, the display is very dark and the shot comes out dark and with a pink tinge where it should be white. If I go from auto exposure to 400asa it is a little better but not good. Any ideas?

Dark Pictures I have been trying to photograph nite shots of the exterior of my house with the landscape lighting on. I am trying to use slower shutter speeds with a tripod and timer but they still keep coming out dark. Any assistance on settings (shutter speed, aperature or other) would be greatly appreciated.

Dark images canon powershot sx100 seems that every pic is dark even with flash and in various light conditions. It seems that the right side of the control dial (where the flash icon is) doesn't allow me to change the flash type as it used too. nothing happens, can't choose red-eye reduction or anything. Any ideas? Has anyone had this problem before? Camera is only a year old so hope it's not broke! thanks for the help.

Hi, my Nikon D200 has a blank screen. If I go to the menu, it shows the menu just fine, but if I want to take a picture it is black. I tried taking a couple of shots, and they are all dark with a small amount of definition just to where I can see what I am photographing. Is there some setting that has been messed up?

I just got the Nikon D3000 for Christmas, new in the box. I began to put it together, and I attached the lens and heard the click and everything. It has an error message that says "Lens not attached", when the lens OBVIOUSLY is attached. I can only "take a picture" in M mode, but there really is no picture at all. All that I can get is a dark image. Please help! Btw, I don't fully understand professional photographical terms, so please explain them thoroughly. Thank you!

I have purchased a Canon EX580 II Speedlight for my Canon 60D. I cannot seem to get it to work when taking photographs. I have tested it on the pilot light and it works OK.

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.
