Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

Color Quality PINK

My camera has started taking pictures that are colored pink. It seems to happen with the flash. The entire photo has a pink-colored tint, while bright objects are completely pink. I have had the camera 3 years and have been very satisfied with it, and this just started. Any help much appreciated.

Re: Color Quality PINK

Hi, I had the same problem with the Canon A70.It turned pink and when aimed at bright light, the picture turns bright. I called up the Canon service centre and they told me that the problem was with the processing of the image and the connector. They told me to bring to the centre and the repair is free of charge despite no more warranty left. My advise is to bring it to the repair centre.

Re: Color Quality PINK

No its not the flash, it is the CCD. The replacement of the CCD will solve the problem.

This FE-340 Olympus is a great camera. Lots of features and usually great results
  • Indoor pictures with flash set on auto WB (white balance) should not be a problem
  • Indoor pictures without flash requires setting the WB to match the light source in the room (incandescent, florescent etc) Outdoor pictures WB on auto generally not a problem
For more help Include a photo with the metadata of the photo from the image data file

My LCD goes pink and purple

This usually happens only when the camera is too cold for the CMOS to function properly. Try carrying the camera in an inside pocket until ready to take a photo. This has been my experience. I have no experience with this color change in any other situation.

1. The batteries may need replacement. Somedigital cameras continue to function when their battery power is low, but produce grainy photos with incorrect coloration. Make sure you aren't using Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries, which are generally not recommended for cameras.
2. For the best picture quality, make sure the camera is set to its highest resolution. This may have been adjusted by accident. The process for doing this varies greatly among different digital cameras. Keep in mind that fewer photos will fit in the camera's memory and it will probably take longer to transfer them to the computer, at a higher resolution.
3. Digital
photography tends to be more prone to blurring (caused by slight movement of the camera while the photo is taken) than 35mm film, especially with very small or lightweight digital cameras. To remedy this, try using a tripod and/or the camera's timer, if it has one. Adjust the camera's shutter speed if possible.
4. If colors are too pale, using an image editing/viewing program (such as PictureWorks MediaCenter) to increase the Saturation level may be helpful. If the camera has produced colors which are entirely wrong (everything is in shades of black and purple, for example), you can turn the saturation all the way down so that it becomes a black & white photo.
5. The lens may need cleaning. Make sure you use a cleaning material which will not scratch the lens. If possible, refer to its manual for specific cleaning instructions

This is imbalance of the white balance of the camera. If there is no fault with outdoor shots then the CCD does not compensate the high intensity flash specially when bounced closer.
Set the camera manually to outdoor high brightness and test.
If the pink seems to come back irrespecitve of any of the settings the CCD circuitry is faulty.
