Question about Nikon Coolpix 2200 Digital Camera

Pictures go "pink"

All my photos have a definite "pink" cast to them. Much too pink to ignore. If I leave it turned off for about a week with the batteries out, then it may return to normal, but as soon as I take a photo in conditions that could remotely be called 'bright' it goes pink again. reseting doesn't hepl

    WOW that was quick

    No set tint levels in the camera, just preset brightness and daylight-incandescent etc levels. I've played with all those already-no go.
    Looks like it will have to go back then as I don't want to have to "photoshop" all my photos. (I get pretty click happy on occasion) and it did work originally just fine.

    Thanks anyway

    Thanks-I've tried the reset and there is no change. I've tried all the brightness, daylight to indoors settings etc. Its only a pretty basic camera-point and shoot really, but it took pretty good photos (did!). I think its hardware not software problem, but I was hoping......

    Thanks for your time and sugestion

Have you tried the camera reset feature in the setup menu I have found resetting the camera sometimes helps with this. If it does not help it is most likely a ccd issue the is not processing the yellow and blue correctly. I have a feature on my camera that causes that effect so the reset should fix it.

This could be a native color cast of the sensor. Is there an option to set tint levels in camera? If so, simply push the slider over to the 'green' end until it looks right.
This can also be done with basic photo editing software. 
If this is an issue you need solved from the hardware end, Nikon is your friend. It's at least worth the 10 dollars to send it back to factory to find out if there's something wrong with it. Check out NikonUSA.com for a list of authorized service centers near you.

When I take a picture with my Kodak EasyShare C180 everything in the picture is pink. How do I change make it stop taking pink pictures? Please help...


This sounds like a colour balance issue. There are several settings for colour balance, and the easiest to use is Auto. Other settings may give a colour cast if you take pictures in lighting conditions other than the one the camera is set for.

There are also "effects" settings in some cameras. Again, best left off if you don't intend to take an un-natural looking picture.

Pink cast to pictures


Test to see if this phenomenon repeats in all dif. SCN and AUTO mode.
Test to see if the flash could be causing it.

2 outdoor photos: One w. flash one without
2 indoor photos: One w. flash one without

If this phenomenon has a patern you should specify this if repair needed.

Pink pictures


Make sure the white balance is set to "auto." Try going outside into shade and taking a picture of a white piece of paper, and see if that has a color cast.

If it does, follow the instructions in your camera's manual to set up a "custom white balance," and see if that helps. If the camera is newish, Canon might fix it under warranty, too.

My pictures have a pink cast to them


This is a symptom of a faulty CCD. This is a known issue and if the camera is taken direct to a Canon service centre they should be able to have it repaired at no charge. Camera shops can also send them in for you but will most likely charge you a handling fee.

Overall pink cast and pink stipe at top of all images taken.


Never had that camera, however, had the same problem -- the pink stripe and pink cast. Turns out the lens cover was slightly cracked and not opening and closing properly. Thus -- the pink cast.

Reddish cast in photos, white objects look pink.


Hello dcmassey, the cause of the problem can be CCD imager. So, the best solution is to claim for Sony recall. If there is some other problem ask for the price estimate. Please contact the nearest Authorized Sony Service. Best regards, Arpi
