Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Bluish background All my pictures recently have a bluish color, even when taken in sunlight. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you solve it? I am not very technically savvy, so it is possibly one of my settings that I set wrong. Thanks for any help

Try blocking the sensor with you palm so that it would create a black background. if the blue streak would still appear on it, you need to call panasonic and have it replaced. sorry. =(

Pictures are overexposed when taken in sunlight, but not all the time???


Not knowing the settings being used or you're experience, makes it kind of difficult. But, I would check where the sun is positioned when you take your next photos. If you are shooting into the sun the background can be completely blown out. Try keeping the sun to your back and see if that helps.

Pictures I have have recently shot all have a blueish hue to them. Is there a setting I can adjust? Thanks Ed


Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings.

The setting you want to investigate is colour balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in fluorescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.

Pink color background and on clothing in sunny shots using auto


That is typically a bad CCD sensor.

To start you can take out batteries for a couple of minutes , but I do not think that will solve the problem.

The CCD sensor is the optical device that captures light and generate the picture on a digital camera.

Whe it is faulty it must be replaced at a repair centre.

Canon covers the repair expenses for CCD sensor replacement , even when warranty is expired on several of their models.
Call manufacturer at the number listed on the user manual to get information, if your model is in Canon list you may have the repair done for free, otherwise get a quote on repair.

Why are my pictures so blurry.. HELP PLEASE!!


Hi Lindsay Davi,

First, make sure you have the file size set to the highest size and highest quality. Small file size and low quality settings produce small files with pixelization.

Second, no camera performs as well in low light as it does in bright light. It sounds like you are new to photography, so you should start out by shooting in bright light - outdoors in the sun. Once you know how to take good photos in the sun, then you can try taking photos when it is overcast, or in bright shade (on a sunny day but outside of the direct sunlight). As you develop more experience in taking photos you can try more difficult lighting situations such as indoors.

Flash lighting is difficult because the light "falls off" quickly as the distance from the flash to the subject increases. The camera's flash tries to put out enough light to illuminate both the subject closest to the camera and to also try to light the background, but this is often impossible. So the subject is too bright, and the background remains dark. If your subject is further away, the lighting evens out some. If your subject is close to the background (e.g. standing in front of a light colored wall) the camera will get the flash exposure set to a better value and the photos will come out better.

It would also help to get a book on basic photography.

Blueish pictures


First thing to do is reset all your settings to default, consult your manual for instructions on how to do this. Your "white balance" may be set improperly for the conditions you are shooting under. If that does not work then comment here and I will advise further. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
