Any way to fool the auto exposure in movie mode?

You have to buy an expensive DSLR? Or, fool around with spot exposure and avoid background lighting. Or use expensive lighting to balance the picture content?

What does the AE icon mean?

It means its set for Auto Exposure. Unless you're going for fancy effects like a faded look or a washed out over exposed look, its generally best to leave it on auto instead of lowering or raising the exposure value (EV).
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

Canon Digital Rebel XT auto focus

Auto Focus does not determine exposure. Only sharpness. "Wrong" exposure could be due to the metering mode being set in Spot Metering. Set it back to Evaluative Metering which may improve the overall even exposure of your shots. Test your shots in full auto or P mode. M (Manual) mode will require you to check the exposure setting manually (you can see the indicator in the viewfinder when you half-press the trigger)

I am getting over expose in auto mode in my canon

An slr has a mirror that needs to flip up at the moment of exposure so you don't get anything on the screen. As for the overexposure, you need to experiment with the ISO settings, the white balance and even the exposure compensation.

My gs500s colors are bright pink and i tried changing white balance and nothing works

Try going into "reset" master mode. otherwise you need to make sure your camera is shooting on the right setting for the light you are using. For example, when shooting in daylight with interior light setting (approx. 3200k) your photos will look off color and yellow or pink because sunlight is 5600k approx.,. . . contrary while shooting indoors with incandescant lighting if the camera is set for sunlight exposure (5600k) the picture will look blue. Make sure you read the manual on how to white balace, but first take the camera out of AutoExposure settings to do all the settings manually. Auto focus and auto exposure are for rookies and these types of errors will happen. Always try to do manual iris and manual focus for best results zoom in and get your focus on the subjects eyes then zoom out and frame up your shot.

Over exposure

First, try putting it on the green auto and see if the exposure is better. If not, then check your ISO setting in the menu. It should be set as low as possible for outdoor, daytime water pictures. Next there is a setting for Ev or exposure value. Be sure that is set to zero. Let me know if we need to go deeper.
