My d55ir cam light doesn't work. pics @ nite r black.

Could not get you. What is the light you are asking about? is it the flash? If your flash isn't working then you must visit the service centre. but if only pictures are dark at night then you should adjust your "ISO Settings". Follow the link to learn more.

Dark Pictures

try reseting the camera back to default settings, there should be a function for that in the menus or a small reset hole somewhere in the camera.

All nite time pics are blacked out what can I do to fix it.

If the day time pictures are good then the setttings for the night shots must be selected according to the light intensity. Please check on the menu for night settings if you are intenting a low light shoot. Also make sure that the flash is active, in most of the present day samml cameras, the flash THROW is low and so the SUBJECT must not be too far as the picture will appear dark. So when using flash in a dark scene have the subject within 5-7 feet as the small flash will not be able to capture the openess. Also you can use a SLAVE flash to counter this and give a better prospective.

My digital camera has some problems in daytime the pictures taken were blurred but at nighttime the pictures were pretty ...

You have to ensure that the camera is not set to night mode as this can affect the quality of the pictures you take during day time.
De-activating the night mode will allow it take normal pictures during daytime.

Samsung Star S5233A has very dark photos

this phone doesn't support flash, so it is obvious that pictures won't come good in the dark. but it is good enough in day light.

Display screen dark

If the screen stays dark at all other times except during playback mode, then i have the same problem. Canon troubleshoot site said that it was a fixable problem if its what they think it is. Like 90 bucks just to look at it though. And if its not what they thought, there would be additional charges

Try playing with the background or lighting - ex: take pics during the day versus nite... use a white/light colored background versus something dark.

Make sure you have the flash set to "auto" or try the "red eye" setting.. I've had good luck with both of those.

Also make use of the zoom. Stand farther back and zoom in - versus being close up and NOT using the zoom.

Hope this helps :)

If the pink & white pics are a small percentage of your photos you should probably just live with it. I have 6 cameras in operation for 2 yrs & they have about 10% like this. Great pics otherwise. Probably caused by the angle of the sun or reflection of the flash off a nearby object.

Blurry white image when pics are taken during broad daylight

Try first to reset your camera. Press the menu button, go over to setup, go down to reset, press the right arrow, highlight reset and press set. Don't worry it won't erase any of the pictures on your memory card. If that doesn't work you can try and manually set the white balance on your camera and I would recommend sending it into repairs if that doesn't work since it's taking nighttime pictures fine. :)
