Please check the new and old pictures on your PC. If the pictures are OK the problem is in LCD. Please check the settings that are described in your user manual. If you need more info please advice.

My pictures are suddenly coming out in a pink or blue color


If you see this color distortion on your pictures as well as on your screen then sounds like your lens sensor is going bad and you will need a replacement CCD. Talk to your sony rep to see if
its still under warranty.

Hi Jim,
Have you tried resetting all settings on the camera? On a Sony camera, it is called "initialize". The initialize setting is found by going to the menu, and tabbing down until you find an option called either "reset settings" or "initialize settings" and then confirm it.
Many times that will fix the issue, in case something has either been enabled/disabled on accident, or the software is sticking (which happens from time to time)

Sony cybershot 4.1 DSC-P43

I bought a new 1MB memory card for this camera and was dismayed to find that the screen went completely blank - I couldn't do anything!!!! It was my sons graduation so had to buy another camera!
But, have just resolved this issue by pressing the bottom right-hand side of the screen with a rubber topped pencil - it works!!!!
This camera may be old and chunky but it still takes amazing pictures.
Hope it works for you too.
