Default Getting dark pictures with Samsung Digimax 230

I have recently bought a Samsung Digimax 230 digital camera. At first the pictures turned out great, but recently all of the pictures turn out very dark. It doesn't seem to matter what color the object or the background is. I have tried changing the metering and the EV, but nothing improves the quality of the pictures. I have found that if I switch the ISO to 400 instead of Auto, the lcd shows a good, clear picutre. But after I take the picture and then view it, the picutre is just as dark as it was before I changed the ISO. Please help!!

Are the pics dark when using auto? When you download the pics to the computer try and open them with Internet Explorer. What software are you using to edit the pics?

The pictures are dark no matter what setting I use, even if I use auto. I tried opening the pictures in Internet Explorer, but they were still very dark. In fact, you can barely make out any object in the picture. I don't normally edit the pictures, but I did try to this evening. I used Photo Impression (it came with my computer). The pictures looked a little better, but still not good. Any ideas?

Did you purchase locally or over the internet.
