Blue tint on finished photo

Our camera is about 4 yrs old; at first it gave a pink tint and now a
blue. Don't want to trash it but not happy with finished product
and don't want to put $'s in it, if possible.

    Hi,
    I saw your post now and thought to ask few questions about camera.
    If it is DSC-F717, does it show distorted image in live view and do you see previously taken pictures clearly in LCD?
    let me know to proceed further.

Try a white balance to recalibrate the white levels.

What would make my pictures and videos come out with a lot of blue tint?


Hi there,
Regarding Blue tint of Photos and Videos - This is tied directly to your White Balance Settings. When you White Balance is set to Auto, the Camera determines the best setting to use to for White Balance (How much Blue or Orange needs to be added for best White). To get a Blue Tint, the Camera's White Balance is most likely set manually to something like Incandescent or Indoor. First you will want to see that your White Balance is set to Auto - If it was not, then Auto should fix your problem. But If it is alrready on Auto, and you are still getting Blue tint both Indoor and Outdoor, then the Camera's Software may be faulty.
Hope this helps!

Photos have a blue tint, can you suggest a cure.


What do you have the white balance set to? What happens if you change to another setting?

Poor quality pictures


Check your picture settings, the wrong setting for the time of day or object can definetly throw off the appearance of your pictures. Plus, you may have accidentally set it to "warm" instead of auto or black and white, etc. Warm pictures have a reddish tint to them just as the cool have a blue tint. Also I have found the "night setting" only takes really good pictures if you are close to the subject otherwise it is pretty dark!

Pictures go "pink"


This could be a native color cast of the sensor. Is there an option to set tint levels in camera? If so, simply push the slider over to the 'green' end until it looks right.
This can also be done with basic photo editing software. 
If this is an issue you need solved from the hardware end, Nikon is your friend. It's at least worth the 10 dollars to send it back to factory to find out if there's something wrong with it. Check out NikonUSA.com for a list of authorized service centers near you.
