Question about Pentax Optio Cameras
The camera takes photos that are blue colored particularly outside in daylight. I have tried changing ISO, white balance and turning flash off, it seems to make little difference. The fault developed suddenly not gradually. thanks
You sure you did put the camera to fully automatic? Because I don't know what model you have, I can't check the manual, to see if you could adjust the white balance. It has not much to do with ISO, but with white balance. Sure you did not select something like scene inside. or scene in tungsten?

SOURCE: My camera CASIO EXILIM EX-Z600
I have a EX-Z600 and i tried updating the firmware to a 1.03, as i did the 1.02. Doing exactly what the instructions say. Now after i placed the update in the root directory and taking the camera off the cradle i was pressing the menu button and pressed the on button to get the program update page but the camera screen would only show version 1.02 then it would turn on. Why does it do that? I have also had the problem, since i got the camera, that sometimes the camera wont turn on unless i take out the battery and put it back in, why is that? Can anybody please help me.

Set it to a manual white balance colour temperature, 5200K being an average one to start testing at. Does this make a difference? If not, then the sensor, RGB lightmetering sensor or exposure board may be at fault. The peripheral area of most sensors is used for white balance metering, which denotes a sensor issue, although if the exposure board isn't reading this information correctly, then it will give varying results. However, Nikon's 420 pixel RGB sensor on the D200 may also be taking WB readings. I'll be talking to Nikon soon, but try manual settings first.

SOURCE: saturation of unrealistic color
It is definite CCD chip problem. If you are within warranty period, send it back quick. They probably replace with other unit because the parts are not available for the product. Good luck.

SOURCE: Underexposed image on Auto mode
You can change the ISO setting also to Auto. If you have the advanced guide (see pp 80, 107).
Press the ISO button it will switch from various ISO setting to AUTO.
Do remember in Bright light , a lower ISO number like 80 will give you very fine images, while as the light level goes down, the ISO number will change to a higher number and the image will become more grainer.
I hope I could answer to your query.
Please do rate. Thanks

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:
