how do I fix over exposed pictures outdoors

Check and make sure you don't have the exposure compensation settings set higher than 0. There is a manual override feature that lets you apply over/under exposure compensation to every photo rather than manually setting it for each shot. Sometimes, this feature can get accidentally changed. If that's not the issue try to reset the camera back to its default settings through the menu feature.

My New Samsung Transform keeps Restarting from time To time , any soulutions ?

It is a power saver feature usually applied to the snap shutter. When the device is powered on, it assumes functionality mode. Soon after the device becomes idle, the shutter retracts to a close. Pressing on the snap button once already powered on should protract the shutters ready for acquisition of media. An entirely durational delay may actually shut down the camera requiring restart altogether. Explore the feature functions of the camera to ascertain its versatility.

using my memory card, i check my photos display with out date & time.

You will find a setting that will date/time stamp the actual image when it's taken. Please take a look in your manual. Most cameras have this feature.

I turned my digital camera on and the LCD screen is showing the image upside down and backwards.

The auto rotate sensor is going bad. Look in your camera's menus for a selection to turn autorotate off. Actually going inside the camera and fixing the sensor is possible for those with some electronics background, but really not worth the risk of further damaging your camera. This feature is not necessary as most image processing software has this same feature if needed.
