White Pictures I have had my D40X for over a year. At first it was great. Lately about every few pictures comes out white or way over-exposed. I have to look at the screen after every picture to make sure it isn't white , if it is, I have to shoot again.

If the camera is on a very reflective surface such as sasnd or snow, sometimes the light meter can be fooled and so you have to try to find a snow mode or manually increace the apeture or shutterspeed or lower the ISO you might also check to see if the camera is set on a very high ISO, or very low apeture or shutter speed, another possibility is that the exposure level is set very high or is locked so the camera will over expose, also if you focus the camera on a dark object, then the rest of the picture will be over exposed, so try to focus on a object that is about halfway between black and white.

QUESTION:::::::::: I have an M520 that used to take great pictures - now lately the picture is distorted and seems to be all grainy/green. I\'ve tried each of the options, resolutions, brightness controls, etc. Sometimes (not every time) after I make a change to the brightness or resolution or white balance setting the picture goes back to normal - but not everytime. Most of the time it\'s just unusable because it\'s so distorted... almost like it\'s over exposed? I\'ve literally checked every setting available to no avail. I want to say it started happening after doing a firmware upgrade. Anyone else having that problem?

Check your ISO, your white balance, and whether you have set exposure compensation by mistake.

My photos just show up white when I take pictures with my S730


Have you tried reformatting it? That's fixed some problems with mine, you could try that and see if it works

White pictures, low battery life, few pictures


I glued a small peice of plastic under the flash and above the camera lens to shade it from the flash when it goes off. I then only had 2 pictures out of 40 that showed a white picture. The plastic peice only sticks out about 1 inch and didn't affect the flash on the subject. I also drilled holes in the bottom and hooked up a 6 volt tractor battery to it this gave me over 1 month of battery life with another identical camera

LCD show purple or violet cast on white areas when using auto mode


Have you tried viewing the photos on a computer or printing them? There should also be parts of the menu/setting displays that would be white. The text on the image info should be in white.
If you are getting white, it would suggest your whitebalance isn't set correctly. If everything has a purple tint to it, check your LCD display settings, otherwise it may be the screen is failing.

Pictures taken during the day come out VERY bright, even white


Might be worth flicking through all the settings menus for a few minutes - look in particular to see if you've got it out of Auto into Manual Exposure, or if somebody has accidentally selected a "brighten everything up by a couple of stops" mode. A.
