I'm not clear about your last sentence. It sounds like you may have accidentally set the camera to use exposure compensation to over-expose the images. To reset this, see page 27 in your user manual. If you don't have the user manual you can download it here from Kodak
. If you said in your last sentence that this is not the case, I apologize for not understanding you clearly.
If this is not the case, then the light meter in the camera may be malfunctioning, telling the camera that it doesn't have enough light.
1) Make sure the light sensor is clean. This is the lower of the 2 small light buttons on the front of the camera, to the left of the lens as you face the camera. If that doesn't help try:
2) Use a - setting in Exposure Compensation to under expose the images to compensate for the damaged light meter.
If neither of these help, then it needs to be sent in for repair, or replaced. (If the camera is out of warranty it is likely that the repair cost will exceed the value of the camera and you should simply buy a new camera.)
