My suggestion? -- Anytime you change light conditions with this non-point-and-shoot camera you should manually color temp balance for best color accuracy. The 'auto' setting can be fooled by certain types of lighting. In the viewfinder or screen view in whatever mode you shoot in you'll see one of 3 color temp options shown, or a blank area if you are on auto balance. I consistently choose the 'one push' option (symbol looks like 2 inverted triangles under a rectangle) using the rearmost of the 3 vertical buttons on the left side of the lens. Then while pointing the camera at the image push the little button just under that rearmost button. This will cause the symbol in the viewfinder to flash a few times and then go steady as it locks on to the proper white balance. Works 99% of the time.

Greetings...

The red or orange cast comes from a warm light source since you have the auto white blance off...

Got to your menu and turn the auto white blance back on and then try taking the same picture under the same lighting and see if that corrects your problem...

    Greetings... sorry, your original note stated whitebalance is off...



    Take a plain sheet of white use that sheet under the lighting condition you are trying to take a picture in... turn the balance off and do a 'whitebalance' under the lighting and then take a picture and see if that clears up your problem...



    The other option is to find the reset control or button and reset the camera back to factory specs. That has a way of getting rid of problems also...



    I have been shooting for over 40 years and whitebalance can be a problem with some camera...



    Let me know if this helps... if not there are some other tricks to try...

When I take a picture it looks fine on the screen. When I then review my pictures there are red lines going through the picture.


Hi,


The problem is due to CCD/CMOS (the chip that physically captures light and creates the digital image) has broken. If this is the case , a repair would cost approximately $80-$130. This is the most common problem for a camera that takes blank/lines in images but where the menu display functions and old photo's display normally.Please confirm that these stripes are normally behind the menu's. Check to see if the new images are downloaded correctly and if the video function works normally. If this does not work, it supports the idea that the chip has gone.Take it to a repair,if the CCD has to be replaced then a new or refurbished camera would cost only slightly more.


Thank you !!

Panasonic PT-56LCZ70 T.V. works fine but the picture is red. Any ideas why?


If you mean the picture has a red cast to it you can go into your setup mode and change teh color temp setting to normal or cool. It sounds like it is set in the warm mode which adds more red to your picture.

Pink vertical line in acer aspire 4736z


You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Bad yellow cast to photos when printed


If you have a yellow cast to your photos, the problem might not be your printer. If you're using a digital camera, indoors under incandescent lighting without a flash your pictures will look yellow.
If this is the case, set your camera's White Balance to Incandescent lighting or use the flash. If all of your pictures, even those taken in daylight, look yellow you'll have to adjust the colors on your printer using the "toolbox" software that comes with it and back the yellow off. I've found that HP printers tend to have better color rendition than Canon.

Blue photos from a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 digital camera


Hello,
It might be an idea to check whether your "white balance" is not set to "fluorescent light" or "custom white balance". "Auto" is the safest option here. Incorrect white balance would cause blue/yellow cast on the picture. Otherwise the problem might be more severe (i.e. sensor failure-not common in TZ3 though).
If you're still getting blue cast with white balance set to auto, you can try to set "custom white balance" with white sheet of paper (refer to the manual for details) - this will override auto white balance.
Good luck!

Red cast on all prints


Sounds crazy, but have you got the LM (light magenta) and M (magenta) tanks or inks mixed up?

Also - check the profiles, if you've got a colour profile set up, you may have applied it twice, which would make a magenta cast...

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.
