Your problem lies in the ccd part of the camera it is the unit that covers light to data. graphic software like adobe photo shop can clear this up on the pictures. but the ultimate thing to have done is have the ccd replaced. whats the model of your camera? Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Fuji S5000 magenta, green and white swirls on view finder

Sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Samsung service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

There is a Magenta overcast on all pages so they all look pink. there is Magenta toner all over the transfer roller and the rubber covered rods on it and on the greenish colored roller on the printer Drum...

Other than cleaning the paper path as needed, and replacing the cartridge with yet another, you are likely stuck! You might try an unauthorized refill!

HP 4600 printer with error message 51.2M and loud noise when calibrating. Any solution?

Replace your magenta cartridge first. If the problem persist I strongly recommend a service tech. Error 51.2M is an magenta scanner(laser) error or DC controller.

HP 2600, magenta 2mm to left misaligned

Just had almost exactly the same issue - except the Magenta was printing 2mm below where it should have been.

Went through all the recalibration menus multiple times and the factory restore etc. Then wondered about the toner cartridge. If the problem is just with the Magenta, maybe this is where the issue lies. The printer had remanufactured toners in it - all the others were fine. Went and found a new HP original magenta toner - printer did its default recalibration on startup and the config test page came out like new. Put the old one back in and problem reappeared.

Strongly suggest you try another toner cartridge - as I suspect the chip is to blame in some way.

My magenta will not print well

Here's what you should do. Remove all ink cartridges. Get some rubbing alcohol, preferrably 91% proof (leaves less moisture) Get a couple normal paper towels. Check each cartridge for dried ink and remove it using an alcohol wetted paper towel. (The deep cleaning procedures aren't always effective.) The gold contacts on each cartridge should be gold when you are done. Use the same procedure on the gold contacts of the ink cartridge housing inside the printer. Take your time, do it well. If that does not fix the problem, then do the following. Switch the black and magenta cartridge. Some printers won't print when you do this, other printers don't know the difference. If your printer is the later, then attempt a print job using a page that has a line of both black and magenta text. If you see a black print, then the problem is your magenta cartridge (despite having installed a new one) If the magenta prints, then you know the magenta cartridge is good. If the magenta prints but the black doesn't, then you have a printer failure. Let me know your results. ZT3000 Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Color Problems

I know this contribution might be late, but try to avoid using the auto white balance. Use a tungsten mode and test each of its compensations until you get the desired result. I haven't had a similar problem on the 14n, but my D100 always places a magenta cast on white when shooting auto WB. I learned how to adapt the other WB modes to any situation.
