Pink cast to all images now


It sounds like your white-balance is off on the magenta side of things. This could be caused by a number of factors, though I would explore your camera's white balance setting to make sure it's set for the right lighting situation. If changing your white balance setting fails, it may be a more serious issue with your sensor or other camera hardware, requiring a professional to repair it.

I have a DMC-TZ2 that from today started to distort the image taken from the sensor. In mode "review" the lcd screen works perfectly so I guess is the sensor. When turning on the camara on...


You cannot fix this yourself as the sensor has failed.

If the camera is under warranty send it back for repair. If it isn't then write a firmly worded but polite demand to Panasonic anyway demanding a goodwill repair. The sensor is only about four years old and has certainly failed prematurely and there are now plenty of precedents in the digital camera industry for putting such faults right out of warranty.

Unfortunately this is and will remain a common fault with all digital cameras. Sensors can fail at any time from the day of manufacture, but on average should last an absolute minimum of five years.

I have a fugi fine pix, when using it in bright sun light i cant see anything


Geofchaam,
You could be experiencing one of two issues:
1) You are having a difficulty viewing the image on the back of the camera (not the view finder). This is common on cameras out in the sun, try cupping your spare hand over the screen to cast a shadow on the screen.
2) You cannot view anything in the view finder. Since the view finder has its own tiny LCD display inside of it, it is displaying what image the camera will take if you press the shutter release. I would double check to see if the camera is set correctly for shooting in bright sunlight (check your owners manual, or set the camera to Automatic), and if there is a difference between what you're seeing in the viewfinder, and what images the camera is taking, consider calling Fuji, as it sounds like a hardware issue.

CCd failure


This is a good blog on CCD failure; http://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/camera-repair-blog/post/images-apear-to-be-distorted-e28093-images-do-not-apear-e28093-Might-be-the-CCD.aspx

Goes into the distorted images you describe, explains why it fails, what it looks like and how to fix it.
While the images actually look cool it's a real drag when it happens to your camera!
Other things that happen is the images do not appear, or show with a magenta hue, or green tint.

Vertical lines and distorted colour on display screen


Just as I got on line to this site I saw your problem being typed in and it's the exact same issue I am having with my Finepix 5000. I've owned it for all of 4 plus years with no problems and really decent photos. I'm getting a blurred image with green/magenta colors when I look through the viewfinder. When I take a photo, it shows the same. It wasn't dropped or even barely touched between the last good photo taken and this. Attached is an example of above description. I would appreciate any advise. See below.7ccd05c.jpg

Flickering screen


Purple streaks, lines and casts across the recorded images are some of the first stages of CCD failure. A blank image will occur when the CCD completely fails. A blank image however is not to be confused with a blank LCD (998bills) where images are recorded OK but nothing is visible on the back, that fault requires the LCD to be replaced by a service centre. As for CCD's, this is a known fault and will most likely be repaired at no charge by Canon if taken directly to them. More detailed information about the CCD problem can be found on the website of your local Canon, as an example, Canon Australia have this page http://www.canon.com.au/support/customer/default.asp?DXI=KnowledgeBase/Customer/KBArticleForm&File=KB01634&productID=powershota80

Magenta cast


I guess it could be several things; perhaps the color temperature of your lights is the culprit. At any rate, it shouldn't be too difficult to correct - here are two suggestions: 1) Shoot in RAW mode so that you can fine-tune color balance after the fact and don't have to get it right in-camera. 2) Shoot a black/white/grey card in the same lighting as your subject. (all three "colors" on the same card) You can then use the eyedropper tool in either curves or levels to set the black and white points, and the grey eyedropper tool (when clicked on the grey in your shot) should get rid of any color cast, magenta or otherwise. Good luck!
