Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7 Digital Camera
Just purchased this camera new in August and it took fabulous photos up until two weeks ago when everything changed! All of my pictures have a yellow tinge to them. Even when you are looking at the view finder while snapping a photo, everything is yellow.
I will admit, my 13 y/o has taken a few pics with the camera so could he have possibly changed a setting? Where do I find the White Balance or where can I adjust the color tones?
I am so disappointed, as I have only had the camera less than 3 months and I travel a lot internationally and going to Australia in a week so want to have the camera ready to go!
Thanks much!! Lisa
Take the Camera back and get a Cannon......
I bought the WSC-80 for my parents and had the same problem. You will get Sony reps on this forum (and other support forums) telling you to "set the white balance" and "it happens with all camera's because of the white balance."
They are trying to get people who haven't bought their P.O.S. camera to think the end user is the problem....you are not the problem.
I have sent my camera in twice now, once because it was blurry (they reset the lense....everything was fine) and now I am getting the yellow tinge on my pics.
I can take three pictures in a row (within seconds) the light is the same, settings are the same, people are the same, etc and two will be yellow and the other will be perfect.
Research all the Sony Models, they suffer from the same problem.....I will NEVER buy Sony again, I bought the "top of the line" for my parents for x-mas and sony made me look like a fool.
Shame on you Sony....

Resetting would be done using the "Initialize" option i suppose...

This should be in the "shooting menu" under White Bal. use a piece of white paper or whatever to set the white balance,
It is also possible that the lighting settings were changed (outdoors is different to fluroescent lighting)
Check the colour menu too, if all else fails try resetting to default settings, (unsure where this would be in the menu)

White balance has been a necessary function of cameras since we were all buying film cameras. Learn to use it and make it your friend. I have a DSC-H7, and it takes great shots. You're always going to get color discrepancies in different lightings if you don't set the white balance. There's nothing wrong with your camera. While auto-white balance is a nice feature, on most cameras it's not always sufficient to get good true-color shots anywhere but in bright sunlight.
