Default Whitewashed pics on an E-PL1


We have an E-PL1 and all the pictures began coming out whitewashed, image is there but all washed out. This is happening indoors as well as outdoors.

I have tried to get to figure out how to either adjust or reset the the camera but I have been unsuccessful.

Any advice on how to fix the camera / settings?

Thanks - Kelly

did you do a factory reset? What is the EV settings on the shots?

Those shots are seriously overexposed. What ISO value were you using? Try it at the lowest ISO value and see how it looks. If still overexposed, put the camera dial on "P" for program mode which is a kind of automatic, and see if the shots are still overexposed.

This post needs to be moved to the Olympus Micro Four/Thirds thread lower down the page.
