If you use the lens in wide and the f lash is not wide as same (if the lens is 18 wide and the f lash is 28 wide ) you will not get good photo so if use 18 mm wide lens then use 18 mm wide f lash and ( i have told about external flash )

Hi,

This is a common problem. Check the previous images saved. If even the saved images/video's looked blurred, this confirms defective LCD screen. If saved images are fine, then this is highly suggestive of faulty CCD sensor.

If that is LCD screen, it could be an expensive deal to get it replaced as compared to the cost of the product. However, if it is CCD sensor, you could contact Nikon and see, if there is any recall for it as in the past, there were certain recalls due to CCD sensor.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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!

Red and blue tint


Often "grayscale" is achieved by mixing some of your colors (CYM) to form composite black and gray - not necessarily just black from your black cartridge. Often there is some yellow used beneath the black -- so if you are getting a red or blue tint, it could mean something as simple as being low on yellow ink.

Blue tint to all my photos


You may have the white balance set to something other than "auto white balance". If the pics look ok on the camera and on your computer, but the prints are blue, I would suspect the printer.

Check the color settings in the on-screen menu. You can choose between "Warm", "Cool" and "User". Maybe you used the "Warm" setting before and somehow it got changed to "Cool".
If this is not the case, you can try the "User" mode and reduce the intensity of the blue channel.
If even black areas show a blue tint, maybe running an auto configuration from the menu helps.
As a last resort, use the "Reset" menu item which resets all settings to factory defaults.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.

Purple Tint Sky


auto white balance should work OK. I was thinking maybe you had accidentally switched it to the Fixed setting. Hmm. You said you were using Normal and Landscape modes. Just to see how it works, I would suggest switching from Program mode to Full Auto. See if that fixes your purple skies. I don't know why it would, but it is something to try
