    Camera was sent back and repaired several years ago. I did the test for that CCD issue and it does not look like the test results. When I look in the viewfinder it is almost black and white with a greenish/yellow tint to the screen. On the menues the selections appear yellowish.

    Do I need a new battery?

    Thanks for your help.

    I though maybe the white balance was malfunction too but that was not it.

    I found that you can reset the camera and it will reboot with mfg. settings. Still did not work so I took the battery out waited 5 min. or so and wa la, problem fixed. Just taking out the battery might help for some but the rebooting and then taking the battery out worked for me.

    Yippee!

    Well, the green tint is back again! :( I found somewhere in this forum that 2 others had the same problem. He said to tap the bottom of the camera. Didn't work for me. Today, I pulled the camera out and tried again. I reread the 2nd persons comment and it said he tapped the "right" hand bottom of the camera. I did that and it works. I am so happy. I just don't want to buy a new camera right now. The one I want is pretty $$$. Thanks again for this forum. Claudia

Yellowish-Green LEAK HELP!


I am guessing that you may have mold (green) in the water coming from your Air Conditioner or from the water channels where the water flows from the car vents to the ground. Usually green is the coolant. Could also be a prankster the poured some lime flavored pop/soda under your car or one leaked in the trunk? Did someone else park there and you are seeing their leaked stuff? Without more info, this is just wild guesses. Where is the leak seen - inside the car? under the engine? floor of a garage? outside in the street? Maybe even windshield washer fluid was that color if it spoiled?

White colors schemes seem off white color or brownish color and blue has green tint or baby blue color. .


Check the coolant in all three crt's as chances are it is contaminated (should be crystal clear). If brown (beer color), replace coolant in all three crt's and perform convergence adjust. Picture should be like new!!!

Good Luck!!!
