Pentax Optio M50 Whiteout

My M50 is malfunctioning.
One day I pick it up and when pointed outside in sunlight it completely whites-out.
I've tested by exposing it to high power LED lights into it, but I still am able to see surroundings of the video but not outside. Even if it's cloudy being outside it whites-out.
Makes videos and photos fine with high power lighting indoors and normal lighting conditions.

Absolutely no clue whats going on.

I sounds like the automatic aperture is stuck.
Had the camera been accidentally sat on?
Is the lens is acting funny?

Also, have you noticed any of the shooting mode symbols on the screen? It could be that you are set up for on of the night modes.
