Trouble with outdoor photos with my camera (indoors seems to work great)
I have owned the s7000 for years without trouble. Its been a great camera. Recently it started OVER EXPOSEING all the outdoor photos that I take. Just the outdoor photos. The indoor pictures seem to be OK. Maybe it is a "shutter" or "Fstop" issue? The camera just started doing this on its own. It was not dropped. I tried resetting it, that did not fix the problem. NOTE: the display shows the F stop and shutter speed in the "auto setting" but I wonder if it is not correct it for some reason..MY thinking "it may be stuck on one F stop or some thing. Thats my guess. Thanks for your time.

Appears that the f stop on your camera is not working properly with the result that your outdoor shots are overexposed. Could be the f stop motor, the photo cell reading lite level, etc. Definitely a job for a pro.
Might cost a fortune to repair so might be advisable to cut losses and get new camera since parts and labor on those devices are costly.
You will need to adjust the "white balance". Your camera may be able to do this by pointing it at a gray surface, and setting something. I don't have your camera instructions, but it's a normal adjustment for indoors.
blurry pictures often comes from the slightest movement when the pictures is snapped. Don;t know if that is your problem or not try a photo tripod and see if that helps or check your trouble shooting area of your amnual. if you don't have the manual go to this site for any type of manual:::: http://tv.manualsonline.com/search.html?q=vr+5940&submit.x=35&submit.y=14
Built in flash units on digital cameras are only meant to be used out to a distance of 6-12 feet. When taking photos of events ie graduations, sporting events, concerts you need to do two things. 1). Change the ISO setting on your camera. This is the same as the old film speed ratings the higher the number the more sensitive the camera becomes. try ISO 1600 or above in low light. 2) You have a mode setting, set it for the type of lighting that is in the space you are in, incandescent, flourescent or whatever, it's easy to do. and finally 3) Turn off your flash! When your flash is on your camera closes up the aperature and takes the picture at a higher rate of speed in anticipation of reflected light off of nearby objects, so your pictures will be darker and blurrier with the flash on.
Even high grade professional flashes only work out to 20-30 feet so they won't help you. Read your cameras manual on taking pictures in low light conditions. It will give you all of the above in great detail. You have a great camera but you need to learn how it works, don't give up on it.
this problem may happen due to sticky shutters. when a camera is left non operative for a long time sometimes the the shutter gets stuck due to some sticks substance between the blades. BUT you specified thet it's not taking OUTDOOR PICTURES that means that it is working fine indoors ??? That's confusing..
Unfortunately, you may have a faulty flash pcb (printed circuit board) The part is around 50$ plus installation 200+ total repair cost. A work around would be to use an external flash unit from the hot shoe
It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.
