Question about Nikon Cameras

Nikon coolpix p60

Purple fog! My camera had been working beautifully until yesterday. The pics in the viewfinger are all purpley, and if I go ahead & take a pic, the result is something that looks like purple dripping down. I've gone through all the settings, changed batteries; no result!

The viewfinder on the Coolpix P60 appears to be a small monitor that links to the main image sensor that is the same sensor that the lens uses. If the purple is on the images when they have been downloaded from the camera to another device, then the sensor is bad. If it is only on the viewfinder and the rear LCD, then the problem is in the connection from the circuit board to the monitoring devices.

Either way, it is probably cheaper to replace the camera than to have a non-warranty sensor or circuit board replacement.

    Thanks, Peter. I guess that's it! Cameras used to last forever; too bad digital cameras don't. It's not that old, for heaven's sake.

    I'm looking at a Nikon COOLPIX L320. One reviewer said: "The great thing about the new range of Nikon digital compacts is that they seem to have had an overhaul on the sensor."

You might have the camera set to an inappropriate 'scene' mode. If you are using 'landscape' or 'snow' for an indoor or night shot for example, the camera will select a slow shutter speed which will increase the chance of blur - hence the warning.

If you keep the selector switch all the way to the left (auto mode) you should be fine in most situations. Only use the 'scene' modes for specific purposes.

I had the same problem after I bought the camera for only 2 months. At begining, it turned pink when the temperature was high (over 80) and went back to normal when it was cooled down. Now the pink color won't go away even when it's cool.

Try to put your camera in a refrigiator for 10 minutes and then take pictures.

SOURCE: coolpix s220 won't transfer pics via usb cable

If you can get the pics using a card reader, why are you insisting on using the camera and USB cord? Pros always use a card reader.

Try rechargeables anyway just in case.Sometimes with age these cameras don't work well with alkalines. If that still doesn't work then I would suggest contacting your local Nikon authorized service center.

Try downloading from the memory card. You will have to purchase a card reader, usually less than $20. It will save the batteries, too, since the reader is powered by the computer.
Make sure the batteries have a good charge. The camera powers the download not the pc.
