Picture playback too bright

All my video is turning out too bright - even too bright after adjusting it through my software program.  I can't seem to find any info in the manual to help me figure this out.  Any suggestions?

    Both LCD and viewfinder, playback and record mode were too bright.  Handycam DCR-TRV460.  I did an online chat with someone at Sony and he had me reset the camera and now it looks great again!  Thanks anyway.

Camera exilim ex-s600 will not take pictures outside,pictures turning out white,yet will take pictures inside this a worthwhile repair

This seems to be a software problem with your camera. Your camera should, if on AUTO mode, automatically expose your photo accurately. Try half pressing the shutter button (used to take pictures) while outside to adjust focus and exposure, then press the button fully to take picture. If your camera cannot adjust to take a properly exposed picture (not bright white), then it is possible that the shutter speed is stuck on a too high speed, outside daytime shutter speed should be fast (1/1000 sec). Or if your shutter speed adjust accurately, it could be the aperture if the aperture is not small enough for daylight shooting. This is likely a software problem. Try adjusting your settings manually and see if the picture turns out!

How can i use my cam on my notebook even not on line?

Many notebook computers come with a built-in camera that enables you to take photos and do video chats with friends and family. These devices also come with built-in software that allows you to turn the camera on from your Start Menu and customize the picture and sound quality. Although doing a video chat isn't quite the same as being there in person, it is the next best thing.

1.Click on the Start Menu in Windows in the lower left corner. Go to "Programs" and locate the webcam software that came with your notebook.
2.Click on the program and a new window will appear. The camera will start up and you will appear in the window.
3.Adjust the video and audio by going to "Tools" on the menu at the top of the screen and then "Options." You can change the contrast, brightness, hue and saturation here. You can also change the microphone settings.

I hope you may find it very helpful. Thanks.

Tv screen went white but can still see picture

There is a defect in the video output circuit which feeds the signals to the picture tube. Unless you are technically inclined and adept at desoldering and part replacement this is a job for a technician. Often the video output i.c. fails and on some brands a resistor can open and cause this symptom also. One other possibility, with some TVs however, is that someone turned up the screen control. This control is accessible on some units through the back cover and is a service adjustment. Some units even had the control shaft projecting through the cover. If the screen control is there it usually is labeled along with the focus control. Adjust it until you get normal brightness. If this is not an option or it does not help you will need that technician.

The Contrast and Brightness on tv appears to be dark.

If this is a CRT-based TV and it's been played most of the time, you may have a bad picture tube, especially if strong red colors bleed to the right. CRT's dim with use, unlike LCD or plasma. But it could also be trouble in the video circuits - none of this falls into the DIY category, unfortunately. High voltage involved, unless you're comfortable around it and want to try turning up the screen controls inside the TV. If you do, let me know - but "no response at all" from the external adjustments points to a more serious problem.

Seeing picture on monitor of dvd player

I have the 7 inch monitor but my manual says: "If you feel bright unsuitable during playback, press MONITOR button to select bright adjustment and press + or - buttons until moderate bright is available." If that doesn't work you may have stumbled on the reason the company is no longer in business. They sold crappy stuff.

To even things out you need to use the controls on the monitor to lower the brightrnes. to acceptable levels. When playing a DVD there are seperate controls in the software and your graphics driver to adjust the Video Overly settings. Look for settings called gamma and brightness in the video overlay settings in the windows display properties panel. This should help even things out some. Deal is to crank down the brightness on the monitor and crank it up in the video settings in windows. It will make the DVD's brighter and rest of the time the regular screen darker.
