Pictures washed out

My casio exilim ex-s500 now takes pictures which seem to be overexposed. I've tried changing the settings but every pix taken outside is "washed out". Can any one help?

Washed out I would guess looks like it's all white or a lot of white instead of the colors on the pictures. My guess is that your camera is over-exposing the pictures. Usually keeping it in automatic should solve your problem. But if it still doesn't, then it might be that you have an offsetting function that I think is called EV, which is either a plus or a minus function. Plus for over-exposing and minus or under-exposing. Read the manual and look for this function. Usually keeping it on auto is enough. Let me know if this helps.

Overexposure for pix mode.video seems okcamera 2 yrs old casio EX-S880


Check your "exposure compensation" setting. It should be at "0". You can set it lower if your pics are still overexposed and see if you can find a setting you like.

Casio S600 Exilim takes outdoor overexposed pictures


Check the ISO ( film speed (ASA) that you have set change it to either 100 or 200 and even 64 if it allows that.

You need to have the shutter snap fast in sunny/bright conditions and the Aperture needs to be a large number like F11

The higher the number the smaller the aperture ( sharper image not bleached out) F4 can be too large so can F8 in many cases and will, combined with the wrong ISO ..overexpose your pictures.

Overexposed photos in otherwise normal settings in casio ex-s500


It is the shutter (or at least it was for me) I found a simple test here: http://www.mydc.com.tw/repair/knowledge_en/casio-exilim-ex-s600-overexposure-t17.html
I repaired it myself, but it took me a whole afternoon and lots of patience.
The hard part is taking the camera apart, once I got to the shutter I just activated it manually so to dislodge any pieces that might have gotten jammed, then placed it back together again and it worked! :).
It's really hard to take apart, it's like a puzzle sometimes, to find which screws are keeping it together. I also had a bit of hard time when it came to put the zoom back together again.
But I guess it beats throwing the camera away.
I'm still puzzled on how the CCD works so that an overexposure would make horizontal overexposed lines, but everything points to that. Fixed shutter, lines be gone.

Casio exilim EX-S500 overexpose


If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

It's need repair camera machine shutter.

It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.

As for the totally dark screen, either your LCD or driver board is bad. You will need to open and replace the broken part.
