Have you checked what ISO you have selected here? Graininess and over exposure can be caused by selecting the wrong ISO ( which in film days was ASA ( film speed) The average ISO should be 100 some early models allowed ISO 64 or similar. Having it set at 400 -800 ISO can also have the pics come out grainy. But not nescessarily overexposed unless you point directly at the light source as these ratings are for low light/movement situations. The video mode usually sets itself up differently to picture mode. The fact that you say your video is OK says there is nothing wrong with the lens or sensor, just the settings you have initially chosen to have autoed.

If they are white that means they are getting over exposed. You may have your camera in a manual mode that is set to overexpose the pictures. You can set it in an automatic mode to take care of this. The other possibility is that you have a exposure adustment that can be set at either + for brighter or - for darker. It should be set at 0. Sometimes this is a EF option on the camera. Hopefully this helps.
sorry to say my friend if all settings are correct and normal as u took pics in past with the same settings
CCD Imaging chip is gettin faulty it starts like these symptoms first
over exposed then pink purple shades and blurry pics , scrathces on
pics and then completely off u have to get it replaced thru service
centre in ur area but there is a strong chance u can get free repairs from Sony bcoz it is a known problem in various models
otherwise they are not over exposed actually they have CCD HR problem ur CCD is having fault as 1000's have the same fault u will get pink shades in white and then later it will stop working u have to arrange for ccd change go to fuji service centre
You probably have oils on the aperture blades and they do not close to the F stop you set as quickly as required, thus causing the over exposure. Easy to pinpoint: sent the aperture to full open (F1.8) and use appropriate shutter speeds as determined by the camera (in manual mode), if the picture does not over expose, then the problem is with the oiled contaminated aperture blades. Have it cleaned.
So, the problem doesn't seem to be the flash if the actual subject in
the foreground is exposed properly. My guess is that the background is
being lit by another light source. Typically, your camera uses a flash
for dark areas or what it gauges as a dark area. This doesn't adjust
the background for additional light sources. For example, if you're
standing outside and there's a tree covering someone that you're taking
a picture of your flash will adjust to "properly" light that
individual. However, because the flash was used for the main subject,
the background is actually now overexposed. The overexposed background
will show up as a brightly lit area because the camera had to adjust
for the foreground. This will actually reverse itself when it's dark
out - meaning if the background and foreground are dark, the flash will
expose the foreground, but the background will be black. Hopefully,
that helps you understand lighting and exposure. Now, to fix this
problem when shooting, you would need to consider several options - 1.
SLR camera with aperture and f-stop settings as well as compensation
controls. This will allow you to control every element of the exposure, but you still need to be aware of the lighting behind the "subject" to properly expose your shots. 2. backlighting compensation - common settings on both SLR and point and shoot cameras that makes auto lighting conversions for backlighting and other common lighting issues. Test whatever options are on your camera to see what works best for your specific problem. 3. Photoshop retouching - you may take one shot with your subject exposed properly and a second shot with the background then merge the images together. 4. using
a tripod to shoot without using the flash - this may give you the closest exposure to exactly what you see when looking at your subject.
try it in auto mode if it is the same condition do u feel change in color like white turning pink or purple or sort of over exposed pics as u said then i worry that ur CCD HR is going to faulty in coming days later on pics will get pink and purple and then ccd stops working completely , i hope this is not the case do let me know if i can help u
