Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera
After using the camera on nightframing mode, the pictures all come out looking sepia, and it looks like sepia through the display, too, but it is NOT on the sepia setting. I can still look at photos I took earlier, and the color is fine, but every photo I took after that one is orangey-brown! Help! It is really a sony cybershot dsc -v3
If the reset previously suggested fails, then you'camera is beyond economic repair.
The click which you hear when the nightframing or nightshot modes are selected are where the camera removes an optical filter which protects the CCD from either infra red damage or ultra violet (can't recall which one, sorry). If you leave the camera set to either of the nightshooting modes in daylight then the CCD can quickly suffer permanent damage.
One other possibility (and I've just risked my DSC-V1 to check!) is that the nighframing/nightshot has failed to return the filter into position; I only tried this briefly, but there was indeed a sepia cast to the live view and to photographs. The linkage between the switch and the lever is not mechanical, but you have nothing to lose by trying to open your camera and reseating any flexible printed circuit boards or wire connectors which may have loosened.
If all else fails, you can get a used DSC-V£ in excellent condition far less than the cost of repairs and can get a bit of money back if you sell your broken one as spare parts are in demand.
