White balance should be set to auto,
ISO should be set to auto,
flash should be set to auto,
scene should be set to auto,
Exposure Compensation should be set at 0.
If images are still too dark change ISO setting to 200. If that doesn't work change to 400. If that still doesn't work change exposure compensation to +1. If your photos are still too dark your camera is defective.
Looking down at the top of the camera, check the left knob. This is the exposure compensation dial. Adjust it to "0". If set one way or the other, it will make pictures darker or lighter. This comes in handy when the image has a lot of dark or bright areas - moving this dial will allow you to make the bright areas darker or the dark areas lighter when you camera's light meter is setting the exposure in a way you do not want.
If still having trouble, make sure the right knob (Mode) is not set to M or Manual. Switch it to Program or Auto and try taking a picture again. You might even want to set the outer knob (ISO) to AUTO as well to reduce the chances of an incorrect setting. If it now works as expected, but you want to shoot in M, you will need to learn how to use the meter to select the correct combination of aperture (f stop), shutter speed and ISO to obtain the desired results.
Oh, experiment with the exposure compensation knob when you have a chance, learn how it can help correct overly dark / bright scenes. Good luck!
Its so simple enter the formula given below.
First press the C button then press the exposure mode change button ( this is what you used to change the exposure from auto to manual or photo modes) then again C button, then again exposure mode change button then 1 and 4 then start button ( this is what you press to take a copy)
Try this and put it right.
Problem on three things.
1.OPC drum cleaning blade is very old,so lost her activities.
2. Laser unite very dirty,so you need clean.
3. setup or configure exposure control.
# Press Auto key three second
when exposure light indicate now position,select way lighter side.
Yes you will. There's a plug you can buy at an auto parts place you will also need a 9 volt battery, that will save your memory, fit's in the cigarette lighter make sure your lighter plug works.just plug in to lighter will save memory while to switch battery out.
You can calibrate the lamp under service mode * 28 (together for 3 sec) * i think under No.5.
Whe you open the front door, under instruction hoewto replace toner there must be an table with numbers and standard adj, values.By this table you can figure out which values do You need to change - something by my memory HL5 or similar value for lighter copy decrease value and oposite.
First, Have you tried it in P mode and are the results the same? Then, have you tried taking images in M mode and set the exposure yourself? Do you have the same result?
Second, If you are shooting in P or normal mode the Exposure compensation might have been incorrectly set. On the Navigation control to the right of the OK button is where you can set Exposure compensation. Press it there and you will see some information appear at the bottom and left side of your LCD. The bar on the left will consist of a series of white graduations with the centre one yellow. If you have yellow bars above the centre one then your image will appear lighter as if over exposed while if you have yellow bars that extend below the centre one your image will appear darker as if under exposed. To reset it use the navigation control to scroll either up or down then press OK once it is where you need it. Last, if that doesn't work, try checking the ISO. With the camera on in P mode press and hold the Fn button at the top left of the LCD. Scroll to Auto using the command dial next to the shutter release and release the button. If it was already on auto you could try setting it on 2000 and seeing what the result are like then. Don't leave it on 2000 as you will get grainy images but you should get lighter shots as it will allow the camera to cope with poor light conditions. Reset the ISO to Auto and if it still isn't working properly you will probably need to get it serviced.
You can change the ISO setting also to Auto. If you have the advanced guide (see pp 80, 107).
Press the ISO button it will switch from various ISO setting to AUTO.
Do remember in Bright light , a lower ISO number like 80 will give you very fine images, while as the light level goes down, the ISO number will change to a higher number and the image will become more grainer.
I hope I could answer to your query.
Please do rate. Thanks
You are exposure compensation in manual mode. If you want the shots lighter, either open up the aperture or slow the shutter. The exposure compensation feature is to override the automatic settings determined by the camera in the auto-exposure modes.
