You're seeing blown-out highlights. Those are the portions of your photo that have been overexposed so much that they've gone pure white and lost all details. This is generally considered a bad thing, but this is only a warning: the camera doesn't know what kind of effects you're trying for.

The correct fix is to reduce exposure to bring back the highlight details. This may result in losing detail in the shadows, but that's generally considered to be not as bad. After all, we don't expect to see things in the dark.

That was the long answer. The short answer is to press up/down on the multiselector until you find a view you like.

My iphone suddenly changed colors. The pictures all look like b/w negatives. The icons are really weird colors. Help. Thank you.


Hello Michel,
In the iphone 3GS there is hidden feature called the "White on Black". It completely inverts the color scheme of your iPhone. The background on the home screen will be white, and the text will be black.All of your native apps will have an inverted color scheme. to disable this feature, Go to Settings then General then Accessibility then Turn of White on Black.wirelessage.jpg

The blinking indicates blown-out highlights. Those are the areas of your pictures that have been overexposed into pure white. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the correct fix in most cases is to reduce the exposure to bring back details. Losing details in the shadows is generally more acceptable. But this is just a warning: the camera doesn't know what effect you're trying for.

While viewing a picture, pressing up/down on the multiselector cycles through the different available views of the picture.

Hi,


The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to Sony service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost.
