This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Fuji should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. However, this advisory repair is currently limited to the US. Please check the following two links for more info:

Re: Pictures are too dark

 

Locate the section in the handbook that deals with exposure compensation and learn to adjust your A620's exposure upwards by between 1 and 2 stops.  I have FIVE different Canon cameras and I have had to do this with all of them.

 

Remember: your flash exposure compensation may be handled in another part of the manual and will probably need to be set separately - worth remembering.

 

Also...it's worth switching to Aperture Priority (Av) mode, quite often; it seems to help with outdoor shots of buildings or of people, when their backgrounds are quite bright.

 

I know how frustrating this can be.

Re: Pictures are too dark

When inside pics are either over exposed with flash or flash doesn't work leaving pics dark, even on flash mode.

Not enough info given. Is it daytime, inside, outside, sunny, etc etc. Have you read the instruction manual's troubleshoot section? BMW

Be sure that you are capturing images in the right shooting mode. For example, if shooting a night scene your image will be underexposed and dark if the image is captured in the Program Auto mode for regular photography, or in any mode other than Night Scene. Be careful that when capturing images, nothing is obstructing the flash.

You never should use the picture you see on the monitor of the camera. Not one camera has a calibrated screen. And the brightness is changed very easy in the setup menu.
To test if your camera shoots good pictures, select AUTO on the mode dial. Shoot some pictures and look on the PC or just print them.
Your camera has so many settings, that over rule the brightness when you switch to it, like + and - 2 EV setting. But when you chose for A, P, S, or M, the pictures can be to dark or to bright, if you dial in the wrong settings. So don't evaluate the pictures on the monitor. Only use the histogram on your camera to see if you have a correct, to dark or to light picture.

Poor quality pictures


Check your picture settings, the wrong setting for the time of day or object can definetly throw off the appearance of your pictures. Plus, you may have accidentally set it to "warm" instead of auto or black and white, etc. Warm pictures have a reddish tint to them just as the cool have a blue tint. Also I have found the "night setting" only takes really good pictures if you are close to the subject otherwise it is pretty dark!

Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure.
