Pink picture


the electronic viewfinder on almost all digital cameras if even they got one is a tiny resolution screen or a mirror reflecting the bigger or smaller lcd screen. switch to your Lcd screen and see if colors are ok or still pink, also look at pictures you have taken. if ok the problem soly lies on the viewfinder which I have many cameras like it and come to think of it they looked aliittle pink too. the view finder helps you only in sunny conditions that you cant see your regular Lcd screen. and should be able to give you a good idea of what you are shooting. pink in real digital colors means you lost some green . look through your menu and see if there is an adjustment for it if not and you cant live with it return for exchange. I looked up the specs and would love this camera. good luck

Are the "moire lines" like a wavy, fine pattern that stipes across the screen at an angle? If so, that sounds like an electronics problem. This is caused by the video and audio oscillators mixing together, producing beats which appear on screen. The color, you may can temporarily fix by spinning the right potentiometer, as possibly the beats (to adjust a filter's bandwidth). Without a manual, this may take trial and error, so finding a new camera may be your better bet.

Distorted Viewfinder Only In PIcture Mode


Yes, You are correct, it does not seem to be problem with the CCD. Insted it seems to be with shutter control or apparture control mechanism of the camera. Normaly there is one single cable carring signal to the shutter blade mechanism and the diaphram control. If this cable is damaged it shows the same symptoms as you have described in your mail. Get in touch with an expert camera repairer.
