the screen is only adjusting to the brightness of the surroundings through the lens. This camera is working properly but many of the Olympus cameras just are bad with sunlight. Let me know if you have further questions

I would try resetting the camera to its default factory settings. Directions on how to do this are on page 20 of your camera manual, and I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!
Go Ahead. Use Us.

I suspect that the film speed is set incorrectly. You need to change the value of the ISO from the menu button near the LCD. Scroll through the menu till you come to ISO ( on film cameras this was the old ASA) for low light conditions one pushed the ASA to a higher rating like ASA 400 which was more sensitive to light, thus better pics in a low light environment.
So you need the opposite and so 100 ASA ( ISO) should help you take better pics in bright sunlight.. you can go as low as 64 if your camera has a setting that low.
Apertures will be different for each ISO value selected so when you look through the lens you will see numbers like F16 in the display ir F8 in a lower light situation.
Rule of thumb
Larger the number smaller the aperture ( sharper the image and for bright light situations
Lower the number larger the aperture to let in more light
average light F8 and this is usually the one the flash selects
Use your manual to learn how to manipulate the ISO and your manual selection of apertures. Your photos wilol improve 100%
