    image on screen too pink

  • eviej24 Aug 12, 2008

    The screen and pictures are coming out in a hot pink and yellow. It seems to be where daylight hits the subject as photos are ok when taken at night or indoors. I've tried resetting & have ensured all settings were the same as a friend's exact same camera that doesn't have a problem but no luck.

    Screen appears pink as do photos. This just happened and still have several previous photos on memory card that are fine when reviewed.

    The screen shows a pink screen and when the pictures are uploaded to the computer the pink remains.

    When pointing and shooting, there is a pink discoloration around theLCD screen. The pictures are coming out completely pink, and usuallyblurry. Videos come out clear but have the pink discoloration aroundthe edges. I have adjusted the exposure, color options, white balance,etc. This happened when I first bought the camera, but had correcteditself the next day. Last night I was shooting pictures and they werecoming out fine, and then this issue randomly popped up again between 2pictures I took. I had not adjusted anything in the menus.

    Same problem - randomly appeared. First noticed on the 'snow' setting one early morning. Thought the pink/grainy effect was a trick of the strange light in the early morning (sunrise). It persisted for a couple of days then righted itself when taking a couple of daylight pictures, again of snow scenes. 3 pictures later, back to pink/grainy. I've tried every setting and all pictures come out pink/grainy. It doesn't affect the pictures sitting in the camera from the summer. I googled this and got a lot of postings on other digitals where the problem was diagnosed as a faulty batch of 'CCD sensors' (think that was it) which the suppliers were fixing for free in 2008. Seems that the only answer was replacement of this part (if I've got its name right)

    Same problem - Nikon L18 about 2 months old. Will be working fine, then all of a sudden - white horizontal lines across picture and/or pinkish cast to entire picture. Has nothing to do with transferring pix - you can see it on the display too. Tried removing/reinstalling the memory card - temporarily helps, but problem comes back.

This FE-340 Olympus is a great camera. Lots of features and usually great results
  • Indoor pictures with flash set on auto WB (white balance) should not be a problem
  • Indoor pictures without flash requires setting the WB to match the light source in the room (incandescent, florescent etc) Outdoor pictures WB on auto generally not a problem
For more help Include a photo with the metadata of the photo from the image data file

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

Picture prints too pink

What you see on the screen is quite often not what prints. Sometimes the screen will not show a slight color anomoly. If your pictures were taken with a digital camera, this is quite common. Try the photo enhancement software that came with your camera, or alternately, your printer. They all supply the software because of color corrections that are at times necessary. Sometimes always. Hope that helps. Try the "Auto Correct" function that most photo correction software has. That should help!

Pink screen

An online chat with an HP agent resolved my problem, at least. All I had to do was reset the camera, which is done via the following steps:
  1. Remove the memory card.
  2. Turn off the camera.
  3. Open the battery compartment and remove the batteries.
  4. Wait at least ten seconds.
  5. Reinsert the batteries and close the battery compartment door.
  6. Turn on the camera. When the camera is turned on, you will be prompted to input or verify the date and time
Don't forget to reinsert the memory card.

Pink tinge to colored photos

Canon has a number of things you can check in their knowledgebase. Go here. Type "pink tint" in the search box and click Search. If you select the first item "tinted printing" you will get at least 21 things you can try (only 10 show up per screen).
