Are you in any other mode besides automatic when this happens. If you're not sure, check that the rotator dial is set to the first little red camera right next to the blue arrow (this is the automatic position). If you're in this position then it's unlikely that overexposure will occur unless you're also encountering mechanical failure of a stuck shutter.

MY CAMERA GIVES A REDDISH TINT TO THE PICTURES


It looks like you're shooting indoors, with incandescent light. Your camera appears to be set for "daylight" white balance. It may have a setting for "incandescent", or may allow you to adjust the "white balance". If you wander through the camera's menu, there should be a setting for white balance.
You can also adjust the color balance in your computer after you've taken the pictures. Many editing programs exist.

I have dropped camera once, since after while clicking pictures at night in absolute dark, several round white small circles or spots are appearing on the image.But in full light area and in daylight...


Are these flash pictures? Are the spots in different places on each picture? If the answer to both questions is yes, the spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash back into the lens.

White screen when taking pictures in daylight


Go to the menu screen for LCD contrast and adjust, it sounds like it is to high. Kinda like a back light for a plasma screen.

Picture display result


Which mode are you shooting in?
You may have adjusted the exposure compensation so everything is washed out.

Whatever the cause, your images are overexposed. Try shooting in auto and the camera should take over the settings, but if you are in other modes, check your shutter speed, aperture, & ISO also. These are all things that can cause too much light and wash the picture out/OVEREXPOSE.

If you have any other questions or can give me more details, just ask!

Hope this helps!

Blurry white image when pics are taken during broad daylight


Try first to reset your camera. Press the menu button, go over to setup, go down to reset, press the right arrow, highlight reset and press set. Don't worry it won't erase any of the pictures on your memory card. If that doesn't work you can try and manually set the white balance on your camera and I would recommend sending it into repairs if that doesn't work since it's taking nighttime pictures fine. :)
