    The camera works fine indoors and at night. But outdoors, it produces white images. Exposure compensation is set to zero but still nothing works.

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.

I have power to my Sony Bravia KDL TV but no picture MOST of the time, especially when the TV is cold. Does a bulb go out gradually or does it go out all at once?

is there still a back light just no picture. shine a light on screen and look at the picture from the side if you can just see the picture then the inverter is on its way out. if you get a white or gary coulor screen then the screen driver is on its way out.

XBox Audio Problems

The red, blue and green are ONLY the Video outputs, and connect colour to colour, now, there are Two other connections, again coulor to coulor, usually red & white, that hook up to the Stereo INPUT. So you need BOTH sets to work IE: The Video & Audio. Video: Blue, Red, Green. Audio: Red & White.

Outside pictures turn white

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.
