Re: too much white
It sounds like you may have accidentally changed the shooting mode to manual mode, with settings appropriate for darker scenes (e.g. indoor) which produce over-exposed shots outside. Check that you are shooting in a regular shooting mode, and also make sure that exposure compensation has been disabled or reset to 0. You may need to refer to your camera manual for details on how to operate these settings. Let me know if you can't find your camera's manual, and I'll look for one online.

Adjustment is in the menu screen, you shouldn't have to go very deep as it is a frequently adjusted setting.
White Balance is how the camera interprets white depending on ambient lighting. Have you ever noticed how when you are taking pictures inside at night and all of the light comes from lamps and the flash that your pictures have a yellow look? Take a picture under flourescent lamps and the pictures look different as well? How about outside? Best true color rendition on the picture taken outside, but different than the others.
White balance is a way for the photographer to adjust the tone of the picture to accurately reproduce the true colors seen in real life in the picture. Most cameras have an automatic white balance and they usually work fairly well. But for the best results, set it manually. Your whites will be white and skin tones appear accurate.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
My camera has lost the audio and when i take pictures outside they are white, can not see any images .like if the lens is letting in too much light. indoor and night pictures come out ok. what can be the problem , this is a new camera. OLYMPUS FE-21o
Don't know your specific camera, but it sounds like you have it set on manual (does it have P, A, S, M settings?) with a long shutter speed. This would let in a lot of light outside, and make all of your pictures blurry. Change your setting to P (program) or Auto (automatic) and see if that helps.
Check the white balance. This should be under menu. When you are outside in sunlight, change is to the sun icon, ect. Are the exposures very long? If they are, they need to be shorter in high light, and longer in lowlight situations.
