Unless you have an HD (High Definition) camcorder, the resolution of the video (or pictures) taken may be too low for it to show well on a (large) TV screen. Hence, you'll see the videos/pictures as blurred/fuzzy
Even i had faced the exact problem but it was due to low battery , hope u hav checked that ... of course the pic took in dark area arent brighter than other pics ... Try hard resetting the camera by taking the batteries out for few min ...
The camera has in fact 2 leds built-in, so it rather looks like one led is out, I had same problem, and sad to say stripping it down to put a new led in is,,, shall we say an eye opener, o yes a wallet opener too.
I suddenly had similar problems with my SR300. I replaced the flat ribbon cable (looks orange) between the body and the LCD display and camera works like new. The ribbon cable is subject to cracking the internal wires where it flexes when you open and close the LCD display. There was also a new part number for the cable so I suspect it is a known problem.
Many of these digital video cameras are not very good for taking still photos. They are optimized for taking moving video pictures. There are many technical reasons for this.
If you want to take still photos, you will find that even a low cost digital still camera will be much better than most any of the video cameras.
Likewise, if you try to take moving pictures with a still camera that gives the movie option, you will find that it will not do as good as a dedicated video camera for the application. This is why manufactures go to the trouble to make both types of cameras.
If your video camera has a flash option for photos and it does not work for still pictures, consult the user guide about how to set this up. If it is properly set up, and it still does not work, then there is probably a fault in the logic control for the flash unit. This will then require factory level service.
I had the same problem and found this forum. In Camera mode, I went to the night/program light button and somehow entered a circular menu shown on the screen ... chose sports shots - and boom! back on to focused pictures. Hallelujah.
