Hello, This sounds like a firmware error. The firmware is a basic software-hardware interface that will instruct the camera's hardware components on how to run based on the user's requests. If this is corrupted (remember, it's still a software component) some camera functions woun't work properly because the firmware can't adress the corresponding hardware components. If this had been a hardware problem, it would have been with the ccd sensor but in this situations the pictures would have come out in the same colors and with the same problems. I would suggest you take the camera to a generic "camera service" center, the smaller ones are cheaper, and ask them for a diagnostic, eventually a firmware update. They could fix your camera for a pretty small fee. I'm sorry I can't provide an easy fix for this. Good luck.

Cannot get movie camera off the DISP setting


hi Lisa
I found this about getting rid of the "disp" setting.
If you want to the colour bias, tap DISP while you have the White Balance selection active. Tap it again to remove it, making sure that you have the White balance active.

Hope this helps

Can only download photos and not movies


What is the file extension of those movies downloaded from your camera? Make sure they are supported by your computer. Try to use Windows Media Player.

Did you download the image to your computer? Was the image shown on the computer white also? If so, it is CCD sensor degradation. It will just get worse with time. Eventually the movie will mode will also show the degradation. Here's a site that outlines people's experience in getting this fixed:

How do i get sound to work in recorded movies


Some cameras you CANNOT play back on the camera, but it only works on the computer. Nothing is wrong, because that camera is basic. So yeah.

Pictures have a purple hue to them Cyber-Shot DSC-P52


I suspect that the color is fine in the screen, if that’s true I would check the “White Balance.” This control is use to compensate for different light sources. The electronics will respond different for sunny or cloudy days and for incandescent or fluorescent lamps. I suspect that it was taken out of AUTO mode. I find that AUTO works well for most people in most situations.
Select photo or movie mode press menu, select WB, select AUTO.
