Yellow tint on images

I just got my Nikon D40x and the images are coming up with a yellow tint across them. I tried to shoot indoors and outdoors and even see if they would appear different when i downloaded them. They still have the yellow tint on them. Is there a setting you can change to adjust this problem?

When i go to the white balance option on the menu, it says "This option is not available with current setting. " I haven't set anything different from the factory settings. Could there be a reason it's not giving me this option?

There should be a setting for white balance to be in auto. Check the shooting menu options

You have a white balance issue. Somewhere in the menu system is a command to alter the white balance - for indoor shooting by artificial light (i.e. light bulbs) it should be set to 'tungsten'. Using flash would overcome this, but the pictures would look very harsh and unnatural.

Slow down your shooting. The "R11" indicates that you can take 11 more images before the buffer is full and the camera will stop functioning until the images are moved to the memory card.
Select a smaller file size. Nikon cameras allow you to select from several sizes of JPEG as well as a RAW and a RAW + JPEG file. These files vary in size. If you select a smaller file size, the buffer will take longer to fill, allowing you to shoot longerTurn off long exposure noise reduction. This function causes the camera to expose twice for every image, and this can fill up the buffer quickly as those images are processed and written to the card.
  • Step 3 Select a smaller file size. Nikon cameras allow you to select from several sizes of JPEG as well as a RAW and a RAW + JPEG file. These files vary in size. If you select a smaller file size, the buffer will take longer to fill, allowing you to shoot longer.
  • Step 4 Turn off long exposure noise reduction. This function causes the camera to expose twice for every image, and this can fill up the buffer quickly as those images are processed and written to the card.

    Shutter Speed too slow on indoor sports for Nikon D60


    Maybe. Assuming you can't add more light, you can either increase the ISO and/or open up the aperture. Try going to A (Aperture) mode and opening up the lens all the way. This will give you the fastest shutter speed possible under the conditions. That may or may not be fast enough.

    Hi - You can download the Nikon D80 Guide to Digital Photography manual by clicking the link underlined in blue below:

    Nikon d80

    Firstly see page 58:

    Try setting the white balance to fluorescent an compare. Also you could set your own white balance preset by shooting a white card as per page 59. Lastly you can play with the "tone adjustment" on page 80.

    Incorrect metering


    it may be a problem with the camera, but you should be using the manual modes....they are much more accurate. if you are worried about it being a defect issue, then send it in.....

    I have one also, and have found it to be a bit slow on the metering side on the pre-programed modes.....

    LCD show purple or violet cast on white areas when using auto mode


    Have you tried viewing the photos on a computer or printing them? There should also be parts of the menu/setting displays that would be white. The text on the image info should be in white.
    If you are getting white, it would suggest your whitebalance isn't set correctly. If everything has a purple tint to it, check your LCD display settings, otherwise it may be the screen is failing.

    Photos coming out with too much yellow


    You're shooting under incandescent light, and the camera doesn't manage to set the white balance entirely automatically. You can try to explicitly set the white balance to incandescent, or you may be able to create a custom white balance (I'm not sure whether Nikon bodies offer that feature), or you can adjust the white balance during processing (in which case it's better to shoot raw).
