Question about Casio Exilim EX-S600 Digital Camera

Casio Exilim EX-Z60 - severe overexposure - entire image is white

I recently bought a used Casio Exilim ex z60 and outdoors photos are unusable due to overexposure. Indoor photos in a dim room are usable, but it's as bright as if the room were well-lit. Strangely, the same outdoor setting that results in a completely washed-out white photo can be captured perfectly in video mode.

Is something broken in this used camera?
Thanks,
Tad

    I have exactly the same problem as Tad. Outdoors photos are unusable due to overexposure. Indoor photos in a
    dim room are usable, but it's as bright as if the room were well-lit.
    Strangely, the same outdoor setting that results in a completely
    washed-out white photo can be captured perfectly in video mode. Can you tell me what the problem is with my camera. I bought it brand-new and had been using it perfectly for 2 years now. It just suddently produced such pictures while I was using it. What could have caused it? What is the CCD mentioned in the answer to Tad's problem?

    Well, I've had my camera for a long time now, and it just started having this problem today!


    After some tests, it seams it works OK with a full (non digital) zoom, that is, SOMETIMES, if I zoom the lens before starting to take pictures, the first ones are ok!


    I thought it could be software but maybe it's the CCD that's having problems...


    The strange thing is that it does NOT happen with movies....Does she use a different CCD ??

As the video mode seems to work okay, I'd suggest that the CCD is fine. The shutter (which is always open during video recording) is likely to be jammed, worn or otherwise broken. This would be causing it to let in light for too long per shot, over exposing the CCD.

If you attempt repair (NOT RECOMMENDED), be extremely careful around the flash circuitry. There's likely to be a capacitor there that holds a charge of up to 500 volts. Touch the wrong area and you'll be zapped (potentially fatal!). If you know what your doing, discharge the capacitor first!
Hope this helps somebody.

Not real sure on that one. Sorry. You can check the casio.com website and see if they are the same size. If they are they might be interchangeable.
