Re: too much flash light on photos
It sounds like your aperture is stuck open inside the lens due to the impact damage. The lines and washed out pictures are exactly what happens when the aperture is stuck...
The only solution is to replace the lens. You can look for a defective camera online and switch out the parts yourself, or if you can't do the repair then let us know!

This is a common problem. The metering and light balance are the reasons that you are having problems achieving good results with your photos.
All cameras on the auto cycle are calibrated for 18% gray. Another words a photo of all white results in 18% gray. A photo of black results in 18% gray. The camera adjusts the shutter speed and aperture to achieve an average light level of 18%. That is why photos of snow always appear gray. To compensate for this characteristic of the cameras an 18 % gray panel is held in front of the camera and than the settings are set.manually. The metering in the camera is now locked and using the same light levels objects will be in their natural level.
A second problem is the white balance. Using flash avoids some of these problems. Adjusting the camera for source lighting type will help the most. The light balance is the cause of discoloration of the objects in the photo. Usually the camera white balance can be set for auto, incandescent, fluorescent, outdoor or flash,
Use a manual setting if it is available on you camera, You need to adjust the settings until you get acceptable results. If the photo is dark add light by reducing the aperture number to a lower number allowing more light. After the aperture is open wide(lowest number) increase the exposure to longer time. With very low light levels a tripod may be necessary.. After doing this once record the numbers for next time.
if the flash is not working thats way you got no colour in your photos,,,it should work fine out side in sun light, taking photos indoors if the flas dont go off the carera can see very well, the orange huw on the photo is all down to the white balances?? and colour temperature ( and thats a long storey ) to cut to the point,,, if the flash has packed up,, its time to invest in a new camera
Not really possible with most cameras. Set the ISO to the highest setting and turn off the flash. This is the best you can do. Professional cameras that can shoot at ISO 3200-5200 are about the only cameras that can take that type of shot. Most pocket cameras do not have ISO above 1000.
Set the camera flash to auto. A digital camera will automatically use all available light to take a picture, and will only use extra light (the flash) if it needs to.
By using manual flash you are over exposing your shots..... giving it more light than is required.
Give it a try.
Did you use flash? Did you use tripod? Generally speaking night photos with non-DSLR digital camera, W55 is non-DSLR, will be blurry unless either flash is used or a tripod is used. The issue is the camera shutter is set for a long exposure in order to get enough light that it is impossible to hold the camera steady. The color problem you mentioned is most likely your white balance. Normal white balance is sunlight at night you white balance should be Auto, Incandescent or Neon
I've seen some of those white eyes photos.
Some are down right scary.
I'm sure you have encountered red-eye when taking flash photos of people.
With some animals, it is not red - but white.
Try to catch the animal looking away from the camera when you take that flash picture. Have someone distract him/her.
