    The pictures I took had a pinkish tint on the LCD when the pictures were taken. When reviewed the lightest areas were pink and pixelated. Fully charged battery, changed memory card; neither helped. Videos seem to be OK.

The color has changed so that the picture contains only blues and greens and no red or yellow shades.

Your TV's red pixels are not firing.It has nothing to do with your settings or something you did.
Only service centers can handle this job .

We have this camera and it will turn on & zoom. The camera will not snap the picture. What could the problem be? We have changed the batteries without sucess The camera has hardly been used. Larry

The problem could be that you're not fully pressing the shutter button. Many people squeeze the button until something happens... that's the half press that causes the autofocus to operate etc. Because something happened, they don't continue to press hard enough to actually take the snap.

Of course it's also possible that the plunger on the shutter button is too short and isn't reaching the switch properly, but I've only seen that on a kids cheap camera where it was squeezed too hard with impatience because cheap cameras operate slowly.

Oh, and one more thing: are you squeezing the button for long enough? I don't know how slow this particular model is.

I own a 3 year old Panasonic TH-50px77u. The picture has changed and no longer shows and red color in the picture. This seemed to change when I plugged in an XBOX video game 3 night s ago.

If I understand this correctly, since you connected one of the HDMI inputs to an X-box, you do not see any red in any picture from any source, not even the SD Photo display input. White areas in the picture are cyan colored; other areas are various shades of blue-green. Red areas are black. This is the worst case; it is not clear from your description whether this is what you see or if the red areas are just not red enough.

Try going to the Picture menu and changing Picture Mode to "Normal", and Normal to "set". Turn Color mgmt. off. Refer to pages 26-27 of your owner's manual (download here). If this doesn't help, try selecting different Color temp settings. Make a note of which combinations of settings are giving you good results and which are giving you poor results.

If you cannot get close to factory default color, download the service manual and post back so we can take a look at the numbers in the video processor's EEPROM (data memory). We can continue diagnostics from that point if necessary. You may want to compare the EEPROM numbers for the settings that give bad results with the nominal values given in the service manual - if one of the numbers for red is way off, that could be the problem. Please post back before trying to change any numbers in the EEPROM - we don't want to make a bigger mess, and it would be a good idea to figure out what is going on first.

Just purchased tv and the quality of the picture is still fuzzy tried to mess around with the resolution but it still isnt very sharp at all

The TVs produce picture using entirely different methods. Usually the colors and especially level of black color are better on plasma, LCD will have some trouble various shades of gray and black especially shading on peoples faces etc.. This is not a defect in the LCD just a limitation in current technology.

Monitor goes black

It always does that while it's powering up the flash again. If you're saying it doesn't come back after a few more seconds, that is a problem. Or maybe by that time, the power saver kicks in. You can tell if the power light starts blinking. Then you just have to press the shutter button again to turn it back on.
