Re: outside pictures are white

I had the same problem, but I fixed it for now. What happened was that part of the shutter got stuck, so it was taking in too much light from outside. Indoor pictures looked ok, unless there was motion. You can see if this is the same problem by looking in your lens and zooming in-see if anything looks weird; you should just see a reddish circle in the center of the lens. I wouldn't really recommend disassembling your lens like I did, but if you want to, I can try to help.

Re: outside pictures are white

Sounds like an over exposure.

Try all modes Aperture, Speed, Program, Manual (try 1/60 f5.6).

If all mode are affected then problem would be how the actual exposure is being controlled by the camera (bad)

If only one mode then check WB (white balance setting)

You didn't say if this was outside

SOURCE: white pictures when taken outside

The lens has suffered impact and the shutter or aperature blades have been damaged and are jamming. The camera needs repair / replacement parts.

Overexposed pictures outside

Look in the manual for how to change your iSO. For outside 200 is about average. Inside photos usually come out better at a higher ISO. If it is not that, look for your white balance.

Taking picctures outside they come out completly white and inside they are fine.

Not sure what type or model of camera you have. But most camera's have a Mode dial. The best thing to do is to turn that dial to the little green camera logo. That is the automatic mode. If you have chosen the moon and star, you only can make pictures in bad light situations.

Whenever I take a picture outside during the day, the pictures come out very bright. I haven't adjusted any settings on it. ideas?

You may have the mode dial set to something like "night pictures"...The ISO may be set too high...the white balance may be on something other than "Auto WB".

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

What is and how do i adjust the white balnceon my fujitsu S550 digital camers?

Adjustment is in the menu screen, you shouldn't have to go very deep as it is a frequently adjusted setting.
White Balance is how the camera interprets white depending on ambient lighting. Have you ever noticed how when you are taking pictures inside at night and all of the light comes from lamps and the flash that your pictures have a yellow look? Take a picture under flourescent lamps and the pictures look different as well? How about outside? Best true color rendition on the picture taken outside, but different than the others.
White balance is a way for the photographer to adjust the tone of the picture to accurately reproduce the true colors seen in real life in the picture. Most cameras have an automatic white balance and they usually work fairly well. But for the best results, set it manually. Your whites will be white and skin tones appear accurate.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
