Overexposed exterior shots?

\015 Recent problem with using the camera outside. Photos are a total white out! Seems to be okay with interior shots but even if it approaches a window from the inside the screen flares up. I have been told to change the ISO value, doesn't seem to affect the problem either for better or worse.\015\012\015\012Not that technically competent so any step by step guide to what may be the problem is much appreciated!\015\012\015\012Many thanks.\015

Try it. I removed my memory chip before I did this so nothing would happen to the photos. I doubt it would have any bearing, but I was being precautious.

Hi, I have a Canon 20D and a Sppedlite 550EX (I use for almost every shot). My problem is that 80-90% of my photos always return back from the printers too dark. I know this sounds like a printing issue, however I have tried 4 different printers and still have the same problem. I have tried up'ing my exposure both on my camera and flash, but this just overexposes parts of the photo too much. My histogram also looks relatively correct on these shots. I appreciate that photos will be taken too dar

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

Over exposure The exposure settings on the camera have suddenly become fixed - I can't change them either through fixing shutter speed, OEV, or any other settings. Even tried a factory reset by selecting 'initialize' from the menu, but the problem persists. High or low exposure settings are visible on the viewfinder (i.e. changing the settings shows the picture getting darker or lighter on the screen), but once the picture is shot, it's fixed at an overexposed state.
