I took quite a few pictures over the weekend. They were all indoor shots using flash. When viewed on the camera's LCD or on a TV, the shots looked quite good and I was very happy with the results, until I downloaded them into my PC. On the PC, they all look very dark. I don't think it's the monitor as I have tried viewing them on several different PCs.

Re: Olympus C2000 picture quality
There are so many variables that effect your exposure. Batteries, ISO rating, shutter, aperture, etc.
Remember your pictures are digital, and you should have a good graphics program to make adjustments (e.g. Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, Photo Deluxe, etc.). I suspect your pictures are under- exposed due to weak batteries from using the flash so much. The only batteries suitable are NiMHs. NiCad or Alkalines will not cut it.

Try restarting your camera a few times and see if that solves the problem. I would suggest saving all of your pictures and reset the camera if possible. Sony's quality of their cybershots are quite sub-par and common things like an LCD shorting out is quite frequent, so you may have to call the manufacturer to replace/repair your camera.
If you took the images at 8MP or 5MP settings, then normally you have a high resolution picture, was the picture clear at the cameras LCD monitor? As you said its like low res in your PC, please check the image file size 8MP resolution will be approx. 3Mb size, if its about that figure, then the problem is in the camera, if the file size is about 500K maybe its in the camera settings, PC cant affect resolution, unless you only have VGA card and monitor, hope this will help, thanks
Is the white dot in the viewfinder? I could see that getting very annoying so I'd probably send it back.
The shots I've taken indoors with the flash on the c2100 have not had any problems with over exposure. There are both exposure and flash compensation settings in the camera, make sure you haven't changed them by accident.
If this is your first digital you have to get used to the way the images look, it's not the same as film. At first digial images look "soft" and more grainy, more so if you look at them at 1:1. I usually view them so they are about 8" wide on the screen, or about 1:2.
As the number of pixels goes up the difference between different compression levels becomes less noticable. If you shoot in 640x480 mode you'll see a difference between high and normal. At full resolution on some shots you'll get better color on SHQ over HQ. And TIFF is rarely any better than SHQ.
First you should verify your findings by taking some photos with the camera sitting on a level surface.
Check for level while viewing through the viewfinder and also while viewing the LCD screen on the back of the camera. When you are sure that everything looks level, take several pictures.
If the pictures are out of plumb, something inside the camera has shifted. This is not fixable by you.
The camera should still be under warranty. When you send the camera for warranty repair, be sure to print the pictures and include them with the camera.
You might first check to see if you can still return it to the store where you made the purchase (take along the purchase receipt). Let them see the pictures.
