Oops, it looks like you have a couple of annoying problems with your Kodak camera.

Is your camera still in warranty by where you bought it (30 days) or the manufacturer (1 year)?

Fotos are white

Try the video. Is it ok?
Adjust the zoom so the internal lens is up close to the outside lens. Now, look into the lens at an angle so you can see into the lens without reflection. With the flash "off" so as not to blind you take a picture and watch the shutter close over the lens. Did it cover the lens? If not then something is obstructing it or there is an electrical failure with the electro magnetic switch operating the shutter.

Trying taking indoor pictures in the "Night Portrait" or "Night Landscape" modes in the "SCN" command. Be careful not tho shake the camera in these modes.

The "Party" mode works well if the people in the picture are close to the camera.

You could also play with the settings in the "P" command to adjust the amount of light entering the camera.

Good luck.

when using any digital camera, you need to do a soft press on the shutter button to capture better pics... when pressing down hard, the images tend to be less than desirable

Night pictures

a) Place the camera on a tripod (or a steady surface - e.g. a chair)
b) Select P mode
c) Focus and take the shot.

Most probably, with the above settings, the camera will select a longer exposure without flash, lighting the scene properly (i.e. making it appear as night, as it should be). However, know that this will also create motion blur of moving subjects (the kids, in this case). If you want to avoid this, you must use flash in slow sync mode. Press repeatedly the flash button, until you see the "slow" indication on the screen (where the flash info appears, down left). Again, the camera should be on a steady surface.

If your pictures are again too bright, it means that the Exposure compensation is for some reason set to +. Use the appropriate button (check the manual if you don't remember which one it is) to fix it

Blury Display on FE140

It sounds like your lens's focus element is stuck. Given the events you describe it is possible that a grain of sand has worked its way into the focus motor's gearing and jammed it up. Normally the small motor moves the focus optic in and out to achieve proper focus, if its movement is limited or completely jammed you will experience blurry pictures. The camera will have to be disassembled and the sand cleaned out to restore normal function. There are repair providers you can find online who can work on your camera.
