Question about Canon EOS 550D Rebel T2i Digital Camera
I have taken pictures last 3 years on this camera. While taking pictures on different mode,suddenly the pictures are totally out of focus. Even on Auto mode does same. Then I change to manual mode, and first couple of them comes good then it is either too dark or too bright. No idea what went wrong. If I switched to Auto, the sometimes couple of shots come good then the pictures are terrible again.
Load up the ATG Canon EOS Utility on your camera & check by shooting tethered. Then view it on a big screen,

Have you tried changing your settings manually to outdoor? Or adjusted the aperture? You can usually find the aperture settings under the menu button. If not, try adjusting to outdoor conditions and disabling flash. And also, lower your white balance a good bit.

learning to use light metering correctly can have its challenge.
the manual will guide you on how to set up to read light from the subject. spot metering a dark area will cause general overexposure, or a washed out look. spot metering a bright area will cause a dark image. if you are on spot meter and shoot two people standing together against a bright lit background, your meter will see between them if they are centered, and read all that bright background, setting the camera to a less sensitive combination of aperture / shutter speed, resulting in a dark image. use field averaging meter setting and be sure you are metering the subject and not the background. try shooting a wall that is fairly clear of other colors and uniform it light hitting it, you should have a correctly exposed image. since it works in other modes (at least 1, anyway) then it is unlikely you have an exposure compensation issue. that is the only other non defect issue that would cause your problem.
once you confirm that you have these settings correct and still get a dark image, its time to have it serviced.

The camera is defective. But as you've only had the camera three months it still is under warranty. Canon is usually very responsive to these type of problems and will bend over backwards to make things right (probably the most responsive of the camera companies).
Call 1-800-OK-CANON to resolve this issue.
