    All shots look overexposed. Pink and white vertical banding across most pictures with few exceptions in low light conditions.

I ended up stamping on it then throwing it in the bin. Obviously its one of them faults that happens once its out of warranty. Good excuse to upgrade to a DSLR.

Poor picture quality have tried resetting factory settings also have taken photo of picture so you can see what I mean but don't know how to send this to you.


Poor picture quality can mean different things - could you be a little more specific, please ? For example is it over or under exposed ? Out of focus ? Suffering from camera shake or subject movement ? Electronic noise degrading the image definition ?

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

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.

Can't repair by yourself.
It's need repair camera machine shutter.

Blurry white image when pics are taken during broad daylight


Try first to reset your camera. Press the menu button, go over to setup, go down to reset, press the right arrow, highlight reset and press set. Don't worry it won't erase any of the pictures on your memory card. If that doesn't work you can try and manually set the white balance on your camera and I would recommend sending it into repairs if that doesn't work since it's taking nighttime pictures fine. :)

Pictures are a mass of horizontal lines.


the flex wire of the shutter is open already and the shutter is not closing when you take a picture and is overload thats why a horizontal lines appear when you take a picture..it need to be service your camera now...do not attempt to open the lens assembly cause it is too difficult to fix the flex wire of the shutter if you are not a technician...

White pictures and lines across pictures


Try this to isolate the problem.
Switch on the camera in auto and put it into full optical zoom. Now turn the camera to face you and angle it so that you can see into the lens without reflection. On full zoom the internal lens will be right up to the outer lens. Now press the button to take a picture. You should be able to see the shutter cover the inside lens and then open again. Did it completely cover the lens? It should do. If not then you will get an over exposed picture or a picture with lines across it.

Outdoor picture is all white


I found the same problem. I was able to solve it by adjusting settings as follows: Go into 'Camera Settings' - top right blue button in video view. You need the 'Camera Setup' tab. Click 'Source' button. Click 'Advanced Settings' tab. 'Banding filter' - check 'Outdoor'. 'OK' your way out.
