one reason could be the presence of nearby object (people soulder, glossy surfaces ...) reflecting too much light back to the camera flash sensor

I've read that you need to set the camera to +1EV. This should get your pictures back to normal.

Suggest you had to the library and get a book on flash photography (it doesn't have to be on digital photography).

The one I read is "Mastering flash photography : a course in basic to advanced lighting techniques" by Susan McCartney.
