Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD display has a yellowish tint

The LCD display on my camera suddenly has a yellowish tint--even the menus are yellowish rather than the white color they used to be. If I photograph a blue object, it looks green onscreen. The pictures are the proper colors after downloading them, however, so it seems to be just a display problem. So far I have tried resetting the camera and adjusting the white balance (which I don't think is what's wrong, since the menus are yellow too). I did have the CCD fixed a few months ago, so I'm hoping this isn't related to that again. Any ideas?

Hi. When I use my Olympus SP 570 UZ in an Indoor Party Hall, I get Orange Tinge or Orange Coloured Photographs. Please Help me to avoid this,

This is called "white balance"-- the indoor lights have a bit of a yellowish tint, while sunlight has more of a blue tint.
Try changing the white balance to Auto-- if you get bad results on Auto, try using the Indoor or Incandescent settings. You may have the white balance set on the "outdoor" or "flash" setting.

I take pictures for a very small school. One of the issues that I continue to run into is while taking pictures in the gym (1932) the lighting makes the pictures turn out mostly yellow. Is there a way

By using the manual white balance adjustment on most cameras, you can "filter" out the yellowish color cast you are experiencing. The adjustment is best made while standing in the area in which you will be shooting. You will see the shift in color on the camera's LCD as you switch from setting to setting. On most cameras adjustment to white balance requires you to take the camera off it's fully automatic setting.

Exposure dark / yellowish tint

The noise reduction aspect of this camera can cause some of this--you may wish to reduce the noise reduction in the quality settings of the camera (see your manual for directions) further, if you are open to post-production fixes you may wish to use a program like Adobe Lightroom2 to correct some of this. Finally you may wish to shoot indoors using the RAW or RAW+JPEG setting. Doing so will give you more control over post-production color correction, and somewhat less artifacting from the noise reduction software.

Yellowish tint on faces, shadows, gold backgrounds

Check the white balance setting of the camera. As you have a yellow cast, it could be because you are using it in Fluorescent (or Tubelight) setting. Changing this to Auto should solve this problem.

yellowish color is due to the light your flash gives when taking pictures. i suggest you bring that to a service center and let them take a look at your camera...probably needs a bulb replacement.

LCD show purple or violet cast on white areas when using auto mode

Have you tried viewing the photos on a computer or printing them? There should also be parts of the menu/setting displays that would be white. The text on the image info should be in white.
If you are getting white, it would suggest your whitebalance isn't set correctly. If everything has a purple tint to it, check your LCD display settings, otherwise it may be the screen is failing.

Yellowish lcd intermitant problem

Problem is in bad contacts in LCD area. In some cases it is sufficient only to clean the flat cables connecting LCD and the main board. The solution for this kind of problem is a job for a pro. In order to stay on a safe (rather than sorry)side, please contact a technician with the best references. If you need more info please advice
