Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Photos are too bright, almost white....

I have had my camera for a couple of years and have loved it, but i turned it on the other day to take some pictures of my 9 month old son and the pictures were really bright, you could barely see them, it only seems to happen when i use the flash, its almost like the flash is too bright. All i done was charge the batteries and put them in, then turned it on just like i normally would, and this started happening I spent a couple hours playing with the settings, and even reset them, but still having the same problem, could it be the flash?, and is there anyway i can fix it... Please help.....

Camera makers would like to use flash lights as bright as the sun, so the flash is fine. the problem lies in the exposure time. continue trying different exposure settings. most makers provide these as pre-programmed settings while some offer manual fine tuning.

White Screen

Hi,

Normally there are two reasons for the given problem.

1). Bad or defective CCD. and/or

2). shutter not working.

in the first case the only solution is the replacement of the CCD.
Please click HERE

And in the later case sticking of shutter blade, non functioning of shutter blade will cause the problem. This can be rectified by sending it to some repairer.

Click HERE for the manual.

I hope you are satisfied with my solution..

Goodluck..

Pictures that I take come out very white/bright. you cannot tell details. I have changed batteries and have the setting on auto.

Double-check your flash settings. You mentioned the camera is in Auto mode, but the flash has separate settings from the camera's shooting mode. With the camera in shooting mode AUTO check the Flash settings (Auto, Red-Eye Reduction, Fill-In, Off) It may be set to 'fill' causing your photos to be too bright.

Also, depending on how close you are to your subject the flash may not be needed. Using the flash when too close to your subject (less then 3 ft.) will cause bright/white photos. Turn the flash OFF if you are taking macro or photos closer then 3ft.

If neither of these fix your problem, turn the flash mode OFF, and camera shooting mode to AUTO and in a naturally well lit area, take a photo, if the photo is still too bright, you may have something mechanically wrong with your camera.

Dark Spot Appears in Photos

This could be from a couple of things. One is a picture that was taken in bright sunlight that burned the image cell. The other also is an image cell issue not related to sun exposure, Precision Camera Digital Camera Repair Video Camera Repair is a place that I recommend.

Nikon D200 / photos coming out magenta somtimes blue

Set it to a manual white balance colour temperature, 5200K being an average one to start testing at. Does this make a difference? If not, then the sensor, RGB lightmetering sensor or exposure board may be at fault. The peripheral area of most sensors is used for white balance metering, which denotes a sensor issue, although if the exposure board isn't reading this information correctly, then it will give varying results. However, Nikon's 420 pixel RGB sensor on the D200 may also be taking WB readings. I'll be talking to Nikon soon, but try manual settings first.

Medion 9700 digital camera

The problem seems to be in the part of the process of taking picture when the camera scans the scene for brightness, to correct exposure. Bright regions turn greeny blue when taken. Low light images are usually unaffected. The problem can be testes by waving a dark object in front of the camera just before shooting. This implies that the good image result (if over exposed) is not a faulty CCD. It seems that the camera has trouble determining the colour balance or white brightness and tries to compensate by post processing.

I will look for a further solution.

White Screen

I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!

Pictures are not turning out REBEL Ti

If your film's ISO speed is relatively high (say, above ISO 200 or 400) and you're shooting in bright light, your camera's shutter/aperture won't be able to compensate for the light. In that case, using a slower film is the solution.
