Re: Outside pictures are all white.

Do you still have this problem? I think the problem was came from types of image format. please try to set up your camera as a different image quality or size. Otherwise why don't you try to use other memory card?

I am unable to take photos with my samsung digimax s800 camera as the message 'CARD LOCKED' keeps coming up on screen. I have deleted loads of photos so the memory card is definitely not full. Any ideas?

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My S800 has been amazing, however since Thursday when I take a pic and zoom in, the image is very bright, or white and has lines all over it (looks like a bad canvass painting, non zoomed images are fine!...

Hi, the problem is in the shutter that you can found inside of the lens unit and maybe the shutter not work properly or damage. you will notice also once you take picture during night time the pictue is good but if you zoom in you will find the lines all over the picture.

tryo to open your camera and check the lens unit. First try to disconnect the the lens cable and connect then check. if the problem still occur, you need to do is open the lens unit and adjust the shutter if working fine or not.also check the flat cable if its not broken.

if you can't do this bring to service center

goodluck and thank you my friend

Photos taken outside are all white

Please try to put camera on AUTO in the settings and then see the results. It should give you the desired results.

Pictures are over exposed when outside

You may have the settings wrong. Check in the MENU to see if you have it set to "inside" pics rather than outside.
Also the ISO has a lot to do with the exposure. If the iso is set too low outside sunlight pics will be white or overexposed. Try setting ISO on wheel for various options select program mode button and MENU select ISO 120 or 250. These are are pretty general settings. the flash will only engage inside or outside if the light is low ( like evening) I suspect your ISO setting is at a setting that is incompatible with bright sunlight
Also select White Balance and move it to DAYLIGHT

take a few shots inside and out to see if there is an improvement.

Samsung digimax s 800 is taking white pictures

'Contamination' would seem to suggest that something got inside the camera and caused a problem - most likely cause, water or some other kind of moisture. Dp you live somewhere humid or do you go to the beach or swim a lot?

Samsung s800 white screen problem

It sounds like you might have a faulty camera. I would use the warranty and get it fixed or even replaced. Might be some wrong with the LCD screen .
