Question about Cameras

Very very bright pictures outside and lines thu the inside ones

I have a Cannon Power Shor 7.1. It is brand new. When I take pictures outside, they are all flashed out, so bright, I can barely make out an image. When I take them inside, there are lines thru them and the are not clear at all and it looks like the flash was also taken. They are on the bright side also. I am very frustrated. I am on vacation in Bangalore India and cannot take pictures. I bought the camera because it is suppose to be one of the best. It is not in this case. Is there some place here where I can take it? Please advise or help me. Thanks to whoever answers me.

    The camera is only a month old. Why would I want to buy a new one? I want this one to work. I don't think your solution is very good at all. I thought you were an expert? I am paying for EXPERT service. You may want to try researching my issues before sending me back a proper solution, don't you think?

Hey there uncle ed,

you have a problem with your cameras exposure. you should also disable nightmode if this camera has it.

usually when we take pictures outside, the camera is in auto focus and auto exposure mode so that you'll not get pictures that are too bright and unrecognizeable...but this is not the case with your camera.

please check with the camera settings about exposure and please check the manual that is with it since its still brand new.

    follow up!



    always remember that if your taking pictures, try to blend the camera settings with your surroundings... if its daytime, use the daylight mode, if its nighttime, use the nightmode. if its for taking background pics like scenery and stuff, use landscape... you should feel good when taking pictures too...

    yes its 7.1. but im asking if its a g6 type or g9 or sd50 becuase there LOTS of canon powershot types out in the market...



    anyway... if you think that your camera is faulty... please check the settings first! you have the manual for that to assist you...

    earl norman llanera Apr 09, 2008

    ok. thanks for that...



    here...



    Check shutter speed, f-stop setting. Speed up your shutter or stop down your apeture. Ex.
    shutter: go from a 1/20 to a 1/100
    apeture: go from an f-2.5 to an f-6.7
    these are just suggestions, you'll have to play around a bit

  • earl norman llanera
    earl norman llanera Apr 09, 2008

    change the exposure meter...its in the menu options.



    increase the ISO to reduce blur and brightness...doing this may also increase the noise in the picture...

  • earl norman llanera
    earl norman llanera Apr 09, 2008

One way out of the glare is to use the optical viewfinder (if your camera has one) to preview your image instead of the LCD. Another possibility is to buy a camera that has a backlit LCD.

Check that the camera is not in night mode or overesposed from menu setting, I think you need the manual. Put it in daylight mode

The watch is brand-new, and you have every reason to expect that it would appear and function correctly. Return the item and ask for refund or replacement.

Why can I not see a picture on my screen in the sun


Picture on these outside in the light will be dim--normal--they need to be inside with no direct light on the screen.

If a working set with no problems and you get it inside you will know--also inside there is a way to do some cleaning that if set not serviced for a long time will bring brightness up some.

This is an older set so do not expect it to look like the new ones.

My sharp 32c540 picture is dark since i bought it brand new 6 years ago.


You may just have to make a different kind of adjustment.

This is what is called a direct view or crt type TV.

Inside on the main board (see attached photo) is the "flyback" transformer.

Note the two little controls embedded in it----top one is focus--leave it alone.

Lower one is SCREEN and a very slight upwards or right adjustment will bring the overall brightness up.

You want to adjust it just till with brightness on set all the way up you have a normal picture.

Too much and you get excessive brightness and trace lines and or further too much shuts set off.

Some sets have two holes in back of cabinet and small tool can get in and adjust the LOWER or screen control and others the back has to be removed.

Lay set face down on padded surface, remove back screws and set upright---do not touch anything inside with set on when you make the adjustment--control is plastic and a plastic tool a good idea--I have used regular screwdriver but know what not to do.

Let me know if you have questions 98% chance just need the Master Screen bumped up a little bit.

Why does my camera take white pictures outside,


Do you have the ISO set to a very high number instead of "auto ISO"?

Error e then 7 flashes in window


I dont know why Cannon persist wuth there stupid messages by morse code,
E 7 means that a sensor has detected an incorrect ink cartridge
Options to fix
1.Check the ink cartridges are correctly installed
2. If you have recently replaced an ink cartridge with one from a supplier other than Cannon feplace the cartridge with a Cannon branded prosduct
3. If everything looks ok then try powering down the printer, unplug wait 2 minutes for all residual power to drain, then power up to see if the printer has resolved the problem, this just resets the sensor which reports the error but it often works as the sensors are the most likely part to give intermitten faults

Can't see picture in frame when taking outside pictures


This is a problem with digital cameras with LCDs. You can make things better by upping the brightness of the screen - this will consume more power though.

Go into the menu (middle button at the back), into 'setup', and then look for 'LCD brightness'.

Brighteness


In my case, the adjustment was available from outside the TV. Sortof. On the rear of the TVabout 2 inches to the right of the coax in, there are two vertical slits on a little protrusion. Inside the slits are the two adjustment screws. The lower screw adjusts brightness, the upper screw adjusts focus. I spend 30 minutes popping the case apart just to find that I could not access the adjustment screws from inside. Lo and behold, they made them easily accessible from the outside. On a side note, I have never seen a TV designed as poorly as this on the inside. You have to literally reach in and unplug things just to get the back off. All the electronics save the tube itself are mounted to the rear chassis. On all other TV's I've seen (taken apart, rather), all the electronics are in the FRONT part of the chassis so that they move WITH the tube.
