Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera
The camera takes pretty good pictures when taking them inside (sometimes has a yellow tint when taken inside) and if it is completely dark, then the camera takes great pictures. However, when I go to take a picture outside, the picture (and LCD screen) is ALL white. it is weird, because the camera was working fine with taking pictures outside one week, then the next week all I get is a WHITE picture when taking pictures outside.
first try to do the ff:
-try to power reset
(take off battery for 1-2 mins & put battery back)
-BP tried using fresh batteries
(try to replace battereis for your camera)
If you ahd tried those options, i suppose you camera needs service now, contact samsung back, do the ff:
-go to samsungcamerausa.com
-click on customer service
on the upper right portion of website
-provide product code and e-mail address
-provide all other necessary information
in registration process
-take note of service center address
-read all shipping reminders
-send camera to service center address provided
samsung service center will do the repair for you camera or if the problem is unrepairable, they will send you replacement camera, if its still udner warranty. tried this option and now my camera is working.

SOURCE: outside pictures turn white
Check the white balance. This should be under menu. When you are outside in sunlight, change is to the sun icon, ect.
Are the exposures very long? If they are, they need to be shorter in high light, and longer in lowlight situations.

Check to see if your ISO is set to a high number like 800 or 1600. If so, set it lower or on auto ISO. Your white balance should probably be on auto white balance. Go into the setup menu and see if your camera has a setting for "reset". This could take your camera back to factory defaults.
