Question about HP Photosmart R707 Digital Camera

Open Question

Green tint on all photos

After a whale-watching trip, my r707's pictures all show a green tint to any photo that has green in the subject matter. I've tried the 11 point trouble-shooting check in the camera's software and it says: everything is A-ok. I suspect the salt air might have somehow damaged the circuitry.  It's been a very good camera, and I hate to scrap it.  Even when I look at subjects that have green in them through the image screen, I see a green tinge to the scene. Is there anyway to reload the firmware to correct this?                 Thank you

SOURCE: HP r707 video is cmming ok but the picture taken

It probably takes good pictures in the dark, with the flash, right?
Very likely the CCD sensor is broken. Try to contact HP if they issued a recall for the faulty sensor.

Green pictures

Assuming the camera is not faulty the most frequent reason for a green tint is the selection of the wrong white balance in the camera menu. The menu will contain "AWB", "daylight", sometimes represented by a stylised sun logo and indoor. If you use "daylight" for indoor photos the pictures will have a green cast. Select "AWB" for generally acceptable results. If the pictures have a green cast on outdoor pictures you have a problem

Red tint when photo prints

I you're shooting indoors with incandescent lights, it will show up reddish. Change the white balance in the Menu to expose for indoor lights, or use the flash - set to the green rectangle setting.

Shutter not closing when taking photo

Try to take video or take picture in dark conditions. If video records correctly, then the CCD sensor is broken. Contact HP and ask if they would repair it for free.

Intermittent green tinted pictures (both indoors and outdoors)

The only recommendation is to correct the colour balance in a photo editor in your computer Come back here if you do not know about photo editing. As far as the camera is concerned there is no remedy as far as I can see -its old age time for a new one Repair is not an option.
