My Nikon Coolpix P7000 consistently takes pictures that have a definiteyelliw-green tint. This happens in all different lighting settings including outside. Is this a common problem in the P7000 and if so, does anyone know how to correct for it. Thanks.

Hi there:
Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

SOURCE: Problem with nikon coolpix 8700

Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.

SOURCE: Anyone know how to replace the screen on Nikon Coolpix L18?

Once you have all the screws out, seperate from the bottom first and then gently pry at the top sides to break the factory seal. The screen has a thin strip of black tape along the right edge you can pull off. Lift up on the screen to reveal the attached electronic strip attached to the board. It is attached with a grey strip that is hinged, just lift up to remove the strip. Replace with the new screen and reassemble your covers.

SOURCE: How to transfer Nikon Coolpix camera pictures to memory card?

Make sure you have an SD memory card inserted and your camera is on. Press the Play button to view your images. Now press menu and scroll down to the copy feature. You have two options, copy from camera to memory card is on top, and from memory card to camera is on the bottom.  Once you select your option, choose your pictures and copy.

You have a white balance issue. Somewhere in the menu system is a command to alter the white balance - for indoor shooting by artificial light (i.e. light bulbs) it should be set to 'tungsten'. Using flash would overcome this, but the pictures would look very harsh and unnatural.

Pictures have a hypersensitivity to yellow. Parts


This is typically caused when taking pictures indoors with artificial lighting (ie. not the sun). This is because of the different color temperature of the light versus sunlight. The camera can somewhat automatically adjust for this, but most cameras (including professional cameras) do not meter indoor lighting perfectly.

Often setting your white balance manually on the camer to Florescent or Incandecent depending on the light source will yield perfect or near perfect results. Some other light sources such as CFLs and LEDs have different light temperatures and you will need to manually adjust the light temperature. For instructions on doing this refer to pages 84 and 85 of the user manual. It is available here, if needed:

Whenever i take a picture inside the house, the shot always has a yellow green tint to it and is very grainy.


Do you have fluorescent lighting inside? You probably need to experiment with different white balance settings.

Picture Quality


A blue tint would be the color balance in the white balance settings in the menu. Go set the white balance to "Auto" if he pictures are blurry, you could have dirty lens. Take a q tip and wipe it down without and solution to it. Otherwise you could have faced a possible impact damage. Was the camera dropped,bumped, or knocked around. This can be fixed. I recommend sending it to the camera doctor.

He can fix it faster and cheaper than the manufacture. Impact damage is not covered by warrantys.

There is a service advisory out for Nikon E5700.

t has come to our attention that in a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras, an electronic component may, in some instances, fail affecting your camera's performance and/or operability.

While only a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras are affected by this advisory, if your camera presents symptoms that can include (1) images with a strong color tint, (2) images that are totally black and/or (3) images with visible defects, Nikon will, upon confirmation that the problem is associated to this Service Advisory, service your camera free of charge.
