This is probably "exposure compensation" but is not white balance. The exposure compensation may be set at a high value like +2. You can set it at 0 for best results. It will appear as a scale from +2 to 0 to -2. Try making sure your camera is on regular Auto mode and this problem should not happen.
If you are using the camera in Auto mode and are still having this bad of results, there is some more serious problem with the camera and you'd need to send it in for repair/recalibration.

No image is captured by the screen itself (LCD screen works but completely dark).


Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.

When i use my digicam during daytime, the picture seems so very bright that u can't even notice some picture of it...what should i do???


Digital cameras have White Balance settings which make the image brighter or work with certain light conditions.

Try to look for it in your camera settings and just put it in AUTO mode then enjoy taking pictures again.

My digital camera has some problems in daytime the pictures taken were blurred but at nighttime the pictures were pretty ...


You have to ensure that the camera is not set to night mode as this can affect the quality of the pictures you take during day time.
De-activating the night mode will allow it take normal pictures during daytime.

Hi im using Canon ixus 95 IS. How do i use it to take photos in the dark room or at night? Can i use it to take clear photos in the dark room?


Simple check - point any old Infra-red remote control at the camera. If you see a blue flash from the transmitting end of the remote wand, chances are you may be able to equip and use an infra-red illumination lamp. If there is a tripod mounting hole in the bottom of the camera, you may be able to find a packaged illuminator with bracket and compatible tripod screw post to make the camera an all in one, single handed device.

Many cameras are sensitive to near~ middle infra-red but incorporate a "hot filter" to mitigate the effects. Daytime exposures outdoors are FULL of infra-red background radiation that can upset the color balance of the photograph captured. Using an illuminator "saturates" the hot filter and the area in front of the camera, giving it a little help to "see" clearly in a low-light situation.

Pictures reddish or orange


Although normal room lights (tungsten lights) appear white to our eyes, their light is actually much "warmer" than daylight, giving a reddish or orange color to pictures. This happens with digital and film cameras. To prevent or lessen this reddish or orange color: If your digital camera has a selectable White Balance mode (check your camera's User's Guide) and you are not using the camera or external flash, set the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" light. If your pictures are reddish even when you use the camera flash or external flash, the room lighting is overpowering the flash. Try setting the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" and continue to use the flash. If your camera does not have a selectable White Balance mode, use the camera flash or external flash when taking pictures in lighting that makes your pictures turn out reddish or orange. If you can, turn down or turn off one of the room lights (without making the room too dark), or move your subject so that it is not being hit directly by the room lights. If you can, when taking pictures in the daytime, try opening any drapes that might be covering windows. Letting in natural daylight improves the color quality of the lighting.
