Hey libra2,
I would try resetting the camera to its default factory settings. Directions on how to do this are on page 20 of your camera manual, and I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: Black screen when trying to take a picture and photos come up black.

The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $47.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

SOURCE: When taking pictures outside bright white photos

I suspect that the film speed is set incorrectly. You need to change the value of the ISO from the menu button near the LCD. Scroll through the menu till you come to ISO ( on film cameras this was the old ASA) for low light conditions one pushed the ASA to a higher rating like ASA 400 which was more sensitive to light, thus better pics in a low light environment.

So you need the opposite and so 100 ASA ( ISO) should help you take better pics in bright sunlight.. you can go as low as 64 if your camera has a setting that low.
Apertures will be different for each ISO value selected so when you look through the lens you will see numbers like F16 in the display ir F8 in a lower light situation.
Rule of thumb
Larger the number smaller the aperture ( sharper the image and for bright light situations
Lower the number larger the aperture to let in more light

average light F8 and this is usually the one the flash selects

Use your manual to learn how to manipulate the ISO and your manual selection of apertures. Your photos wilol improve 100%

Why are my photos washed out when taken outside?


Check that your settings are on auto - to get the best in/out pics

Pictures are over exposed when outside


You may have the settings wrong. Check in the MENU to see if you have it set to "inside" pics rather than outside.
Also the ISO has a lot to do with the exposure. If the iso is set too low outside sunlight pics will be white or overexposed. Try setting ISO on wheel for various options select program mode button and MENU select ISO 120 or 250. These are are pretty general settings. the flash will only engage inside or outside if the light is low ( like evening) I suspect your ISO setting is at a setting that is incompatible with bright sunlight
t
Also select White Balance and move it to DAYLIGHT

take a few shots inside and out to see if there is an improvement.

Photos taken outside are white


If your indoor photos appear ok then most likely your camera is set on a specific setting. Switch it to auto for convenience. Or read your manual, there are a lot of things you can learn from the manual. Look under the different types of scenarios, night scene, macro, daylight, etc.

Why do some of my pictures come out dark or with shadows?


Your Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera does not have a flash. If pictures are coming out dark, it's because there wasn't enough light in the surroundings when the picture was taken. Remember, it's important to take photos in brightly lit surroundings. When taking pictures indoors, make sure that the room has bright lighting. For best results, take pictures during daylight hours with a combination of indoor and outdoor light, preferably near a window.
