Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE X1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Minolta Dimage X1 Pictures have a pink tint

I have owned my camera for 18 months and it has just started to give a pink glow to over 70% of the pictures and similarly on the screen. Small areas have a correct colour balance but the bulk of the pics have this pink flare. I have tried a different memory card, re-setting the camera and all of the other manual functions to restore the color but nothing removes the glow. Any thoughts other than bin it!

Lots of noise lines in picture screen


This is a fairly tipical sensor related problem. A sensor CCD or CMOS will use 3 areas of transistors, each of them managing a single elementary color (RGB - red green blue) in order to capture light and compose the picture. The white color is the most complex wave lenght color that a camera can detect. It will record it by combining all those 3 areas of transistors and balancing the amount of red green blue and their saturations to achieve a fairly good aproximation of the white color (thus a white balance model is used to help the camera to easier recognise a white reference point when taking the picture). If the white becomes pink this means that not all of the transistors were used when "reading" the light. If the pictures have too much noise or are difficult to take or see on the display of the camera, it also means there is a problem with the connections between the small transistors in the sensor, more exactly imperfect contact, a smaller control voltage than the minimum required and similar. However, in most of the cases, the sensor itself isn't the problem, that would be the small ribbon like cable connection that links it to the camera's mainboard. If this cable doens't make a good electrical contact with the sensor or with the other end - the mainboard, the signal comming and going through the sensor will be distorded or have missing components. That's the most common situation. Excess moisture, shocks or other factors may damage or weaken the mechanical contact holding the cable connected to it's ends. This should be checked out first, before asuming other causes for the problem. However this requires dissasembling the camera. While the exterior body of the camera may be taken apart by unscrewing some 3-4 screws, the lens assembly is a very fragile component. If it's not handled with care and some specialised tools it will break down, or some small servomotors may become loose. The actual sensor is located inside this lens assembly. It's a very small rectangle shaped object just underneath the back of the lens assembly. The cable running through that area must be checked by in a specialised service center as taking apart the lens mechanism is a very complicated job.

If you need more informations please reply with your questions.  or if you however want to do this yourself (once again, i think it would be very recomandable not to) i can give you some instructions on how to do this.

Samsung LCD TV 46 inch model LN46A550 has bright pink glow where it should be light (sky, lamp, etc)

My guess would be that you have a CCFL lamp that is failing. They will give off a pinkish tint when they are about to fail. But I would encourage you to get a professional diagnoses.

Pink areas.

Not entirely, The optics of the camera combines with the lens in certain lights will alter the hue of some colors. Like a sound of almost equal tone cancelling out similar frequency sound. You have heard of Tinnitus ( ringing in the ears) when you apply a tone close to that frequencdy it cancels the sound Silence!
Similar things can happen through a lens... the refractory curve is slightly different to the mirror and so colors can distort. Power shot is not a top professional camera it is more point and shoot so does not come with the ability to set different kelvin settings (Itemperature) to compensate for this problem. Hope that helps you somewhat

Pink discoloration and vertical lines in light areas

Possibly a form of flare caused by including the light source in the image.
