Hi. The camera could be faulty but it could also be because the camera settings have been changed so anything you take in good light is is 'over exposed'.

Try restoring all the options in the cameras menus to the original settings by using the review menu options of the camera e.g. on Samsung cameras this can be done as follows:-

[Setup2 Menu> 'Initialisation']

Then try taking some pictures with controls on 'Auto' at first.

White pictures when taking outside


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Picture is white


Don't know your specific camera, but it sounds like you have it set on manual (does it have P, A, S, M settings?) with a long shutter speed. This would let in a lot of light outside, and make all of your pictures blurry.
Change your setting to P (program) or Auto (automatic) and see if that helps.

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.

Blurry white image when pics are taken during broad daylight


Try first to reset your camera. Press the menu button, go over to setup, go down to reset, press the right arrow, highlight reset and press set. Don't worry it won't erase any of the pictures on your memory card. If that doesn't work you can try and manually set the white balance on your camera and I would recommend sending it into repairs if that doesn't work since it's taking nighttime pictures fine. :)
