You will want to make sure you have Auto selected for your shooting mode. If you have anything other than this selected the there are probably some settings like ISO or the light metering is set wrong so this will cause this to happen. If you could tell me what your shooting mode is and the setting, I can let you know better. Otherwise, ensure the Auto is selected and it will work for you.

If this is not the case, please send me the details about your shooting mode and it's settings and I'll help describe it better.

    Turn the mode dial to Auto. There is no "lighting" on the camera. If you want to turn on the flash, then you'll need to turn the dial to a recording mode (like Program). Then press the Flash (lightning bolt) LEFT button until the desired flash type is selected. Choices are:


    1. Auto (lightning bolt + A)

    2. Auto + Red Eye (eye icon)

    3. Forced fillin (lightning bolt - A)

    4. Slow syncrho (lightning bolt + S)

    5. Flash off (lightning bolt in DO NOT icon)
    I think is what you might be asking. If not, please clarify. Thanks.

How to take pictures of paintings without the image appearing dark using auto focus


It sounds like your camera is under exposing a little. If you can, shoot in "raw" mode, and adjust in the software the camera manufacturer provides. Other things you can do: adjust the white balance for the lighting, override the camera's exposure to get more light, use flash, etc.

Vizio lcd flatpanel tv with dark background


If half screen is affected it will be either a board (LCD and Plasma have different names) but in those one board drives each side of the screen unit--worst case is the display panel itself which is fatal from a cost point of view.

Background on copies, possible dirty charge roller , I cleaned all optics is there an adjustment to perform to help eliviate this background


Hi,
yes it could be chatge rollers fault, but how many copies does developer have? I would clean the charge roller with water, dry it, and change the developer. On these digital machine, when you have backround wich is dark, these means that developer is worn out and you need to change it and clean developer cylindar. When the optics is dirty the image will be light, not dark!!!!! Only on analog copiers when optics is dirty the copy is dark, and when the developer is worned out the copy is light!!!!

Background is overexposed


So, the problem doesn't seem to be the flash if the actual subject in the foreground is exposed properly. My guess is that the background is being lit by another light source. Typically, your camera uses a flash for dark areas or what it gauges as a dark area. This doesn't adjust the background for additional light sources. For example, if you're standing outside and there's a tree covering someone that you're taking a picture of your flash will adjust to "properly" light that individual. However, because the flash was used for the main subject, the background is actually now overexposed. The overexposed background will show up as a brightly lit area because the camera had to adjust for the foreground. This will actually reverse itself when it's dark out - meaning if the background and foreground are dark, the flash will expose the foreground, but the background will be black. Hopefully, that helps you understand lighting and exposure. Now, to fix this problem when shooting, you would need to consider several options - 1. SLR camera with aperture and f-stop settings as well as compensation controls. This will allow you to control every element of the exposure, but you still need to be aware of the lighting behind the "subject" to properly expose your shots. 2. backlighting compensation - common settings on both SLR and point and shoot cameras that makes auto lighting conversions for backlighting and other common lighting issues. Test whatever options are on your camera to see what works best for your specific problem. 3. Photoshop retouching - you may take one shot with your subject exposed properly and a second shot with the background then merge the images together. 4. using a tripod to shoot without using the flash - this may give you the closest exposure to exactly what you see when looking at your subject.

Flash


if your setting is set on auto focus then it will automatically sense any presence of backdrop light, if the sensing device cannot see or seen a dark background then it will work automatically, not all condition will be met under some condition,

try focusing on a brighter image or with good light exposure, this might prevent the flash from flashing but will and should work in dark areas.

CANON Rebel RTI Outdoor pictures are dark


learning to use light metering correctly can have its challenge.
the manual will guide you on how to set up to read light from the subject. spot metering a dark area will cause general overexposure, or a washed out look. spot metering a bright area will cause a dark image. if you are on spot meter and shoot two people standing together against a bright lit background, your meter will see between them if they are centered, and read all that bright background, setting the camera to a less sensitive combination of aperture / shutter speed, resulting in a dark image. use field averaging meter setting and be sure you are metering the subject and not the background. try shooting a wall that is fairly clear of other colors and uniform it light hitting it, you should have a correctly exposed image. since it works in other modes (at least 1, anyway) then it is unlikely you have an exposure compensation issue. that is the only other non defect issue that would cause your problem.
once you confirm that you have these settings correct and still get a dark image, its time to have it serviced.
good luck
