Try doing a reset to defaults thru your settings menu in case some setting is the cause

Are some of the photos overexposed due to slow shutter speeds?

Well, it looks like a serious malfunction that would need a visit to a repair facility. 

 

Is it still on warranty? If not, the repair cost might be more than a replacement cost.

It most likely will cost more to repair it, used $150, new $250 on Amazon

Hi Jonboy71,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

Please set your camera to it's Tv (Time value- AKA Shutter priority) mode, then select a high shutter speed (e.g. 1/500 or 1/1000 second). For information about this mode, please click here.

 

Does your camera use a different shutter speed than the one you set?
