Even though everything is on auto, it's still possible to change some settings too high such as the ISO or EXPOSURE COMPENSATION. Check those out. Also, try a camera reset to return to factory default settings. You can find that entry in the setup menu.

My Nikon coolpix will not take a picture. I take a picture, but all I get is a white screen. What is the problem?


probably gross overexposure. What shooting mode are you in? Try it on automatic. Make sure you are not in a manual mode.

Need to take photos outside but it is overcast. I need to make sure the details of the subject is absolutely clear. What would be the best setting? I have an OptiE10 6MP. It takes great pictures outside in...


Taking pictures with maximum level of details while it is overcast weather is much easier than in sunny weather, where you need to look for so-called "open shadow" to limit overexposure.
Depending on your taste, the best possible setting would be one of the built in auto exposure modes for cloudy weather. You might also want to try adding some flash while taking photos in open terrain - it will not work miracles, but will add light to your subject (however, flattening some details). You might also consider overexposing in the camera settings to get more details, when there is not much ambient light.
Usually how it is done is that photos are edited in post processing to get all the required details. And overcast weather gives a nice, even exposure.
Using such a camera is always a compromise between image quality and portability/easy of use.

Today my rebel xs was overexposing outside pics in auto mod. To get some kind of shot I have to go to manual with shutter at 1/4000, aperture 36, iso400 and still am getting heavy overexposure. Why?


The Rebel XS has an exposure compensation of + or - 2 EV in 1/3 or 1/2 stop increments. I suspect that this setting has been altered resulting in over exposures. It will not matter where you set your camera in manual operation it will still yield an overexposure.

Why is the LCD screen white? even when pictures are being taken it also appears white. What can be the possible cause and solution for this?


Well, check what mode you are using. If it's MANUAL, maybe you are using the wrong apperture/speed/iso settings for the light conditions. The picture is being made as you are ordering (with wrong settings), causing a too clear image getting recorded (overexposure); sometimes the overexposure is so extreme that a "all white" image appears on the screen.

Try changing the mode for APPERTURE PRIORITY, SPEED PRIORITY or PROGRAM (A, S or P respectivelly), so the camera will try to compensate the other variables for the correct exposure.

If so, don't give up using the MANUAL mode (which is the best one, in my opinion). Only try to learn a little more about exposure and camera's controls.

AUTO flash causes overexposure


Lower the ISO setting. Set the exposure compensation to a lower number when taking flash pics.
