Default Problem with the quality of my photos

Hello,

I bought an Olympus FE-5010 a few months back, I am have 2 problems with it,
1) when taking indoor pics most of the time it comes our really grainy and blurry, I have tried every setting, at least I think I have and nothing is helping (I will post pic to show you what I mean_

2) and again indoors the brightness on the pictures sometimes is way too bright, I have adjusted all the setting for that too.

outside the camera seems great.

see how it seems rather blurry and grainy? I took this pic of me today on auto timer, 4 of the 5 pics I took all came out grainy like this.



Any help or suggestions please
Thank you

Generally, these cameras don't do well in low-light situations but they certainly should be better than this. I'm not sure if there is a reset feature on this camera but, if so, try resetting. If not, leave the battery out overnight and try it again. Check the lens itself to make sure it's clean of smudges & dust. If it still persists, you may want to get a replacement from where you bought it. Brightness is another issue. Most onboard camera flashes aren't flashes, they're light bombs. You can tone it down some by holding a business card in front of it. Just for grins, try not using it and just use ambient light. You'd be surprised at how well they come out most of the time.

Thank you so much, I will try those suggestions.
