I can't seem to get a good quality picture from my D1X. The color seems to be washed out in my pictures.It doesn't matter if I use a handheld or in camera meter I still get washed out pictures. When I use a flash it's even worst. Could there be something wrong with my ccd sensor?

It's possible you have the setting for picture quality set too low. You want to always shoot at the maximum number of megapixels your camera is capable of. Also, most cameras also allow you to set the picture quality to a setting such as fine, extra fine, etc.
Try taking pictures and download them to a computer. Check the colors and evaluate the quality compared to what you have seen in the LCD display. If the pictures are good and the colors seem to appear good on the computer, then some thing is either not adjusted correctly for the LCD or you may have a menu setting which is incorrect. Check all setting in the menus. Test the camera again, and see what the colors look like in the LCD display. If both the LCD display and the pictures on the computer are the same, then some problem exists in the camera, and may need fixing, or sell on a site such as Ebay for parts or repair as is.
Washed out I would guess looks like it's all white or a lot of white instead of the colors on the pictures. My guess is that your camera is over-exposing the pictures. Usually keeping it in automatic should solve your problem. But if it still doesn't, then it might be that you have an offsetting function that I think is called EV, which is either a plus or a minus function. Plus for over-exposing and minus or under-exposing. Read the manual and look for this function. Usually keeping it on auto is enough. Let me know if this helps.
I'm not familiar with that exact camera, but buried in the cameras menus - there are various options to set the camera to such setting as auto exposure and that sort of thing. Sounds like you may have discovered that already.
In addition, some cameras offer a "white balance" setting - and that should be set on day light.
I'm guessing, cause i own a F505 and not a FD73......but, I dont even see a use for the F505 "standard" quality setting. It will stay on "FINE" quality always.
I've got a HP 882c and it prints just fine. I use HP premium photo paper and the printer setting BEST. Are you using photo paper? Regular paper will bleed the colors around.
Take some pictures on FINE and print them out on photo paper w/ printer BEST and compare.
