[Camera] after having taken pictures in stabilizer mode, now dark pictures

One day I've taken some pictures in stabilizer mode.
Since that moment on, the pictures taken in standard mode are all taken dark so much.

How to reset this?

Take the camera out of stabilizer mode.

Check your other camera settings to set the flash back to auto, and make sure that HDR mode is off as well.

Check the Scene setting to be AUTO.

Setting the camera to HDR for one shot and back to normal mode, looks to have fixed the lightness in "flash OFF" mode

I must do a counterproof in external, now I'm inside an office.

But as soon the flash enters in game (either auto or ON) the picture results dark so much

P.s. Never used before HDR mode.
What is it supposed to be useful for?

I don't know what that means.

Means that live with your answers i've switched on HDR mode and then OFF

Tried two shots
One with flash OFF, finally correct brightness
One with flash automatic (anyway it flashed), the picture was extremely dark, I would say like in the darkness with no flash effect

Counterproof in external, means to take a shot outside with sunlight, since until the last external/sunlight shot, the pictures were dark-dark-dark (again, while the brightness in the bb5 screen at the click moment is shiny and bright as usual and expected, only the resulting picture is like after the sunset)
