    Even I seem to have the same problem of orange images when trying to record. The lens seems to have turned orange / red especially when trying to record outdoor. Even still images bear the same colour. Please help.

Try setting the white balance. This problem my be as simple as the coloring being off a little bit. Try setting the white balance on one push to a bright color and see if that helps at all.

If i click for photo in day its too brightness because of that i we cant see images properlly please ressolve my problem !!


Turn off your flash light manually and avoid to capture with strong light in front of your lens (sun or lamp)
When you take picture outdoors with much light, try to shade your lens with something, use umbrella or even your own hand shadow to make a shade.

If useful, RATE please !

My images are coming out with a blue tint


It sounds like the white balance is set to tungsten or incandescent. That is for old style light bulbs. They make a very orange light, and the blue cancels the orange. In daylight you need to set the white balance to daylight.

With my d90 reds come out as orange how do i stop


My guess is that it's not the camera but it's your monitor calibration. Reds (especially brightly lit reds) are the most difficult to render on a monitor. I would try changing the Vivid color option on the camera as well as saturation and even the color space options to see if you get any variation. Also, consider looking into a monitor calibration utility. If you have a color printer, you can print an image that looks orange on your monitor to see if it prints the same way.

Some images 'cool' some 'warm'


Hi there,

That issue is related to "white balance". Sounds like the camera is not measuring white balance correctly in order to determine the best setting for each shot, and is flipping between correct and incorrect settings, even in the same conditions!

I could go into detail here, but really it is much easier and perhaps better explained with images on many websites. Here is one example:

http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/white-balance.htm

As for a solution, well obviously the camera is not working as it should, but you could also try setting white balance manually if your camera allows it. The above site tutorial will give you an idea of how to do that and what setting to use.

Lens will not retract. orange and green lights come on, but preview screen remains dark and lens will not retract when I trun it off.


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

My flash is not working


Change your batteries, the light should not be orange, but a brighter shade of red, or maybe GREEN.

Striped pictures


The sensor chip on which focused light falls has a failed connection. The image is 'read' via a matrix that is scanned to retrieve the image and one of the paths of this matrix is broken.
