Question about Digital Cameras

3 Answers

The color balance of the video output from my Sony DCR-PC100 is off, especially in the green/yellow range. Color balance looks right on the LCD screen, but when output to tv or PC screen, color balance is as mentioned above. Otherwise, camera seems to be operating fine. What would you suggest be done? Thank you

    Thank you for the quick reply. I will try changing resolution and see if that helps. If not, will remove battery, wait 30 minutes and then replace.

    Removing battery did not fix the problem, nor replacing battery with a new one.

    Any other suggestions?

Can you do a manual white balance by shooting at a while board to set it? and then check the output.

Should you have done this and there is no change then a chip is failing on your camera board.

If you are in warranty you're in luck, but if not, you need to have service. Some white balance oddities can be corrected in software with your application program, but if auto equalize, auto adjust, etc. is not working either then you don't have much choice.

I thought through whether a firmware update would do it for you but you would have to talk to the maker. My guess is no. Relying on firmware updates for all our fixes is a crutch we lean to heavily on.

Sorry there is no easier answer than this. Maybe another tech has an answer. Well, have to see. Sorry for the bad news.

    Yes, you will have to call the manufacturer and explain the problem and the troubleshooting you've accomplished with our help.

    Sorry, but your white balance chipset is failing and can only be serviced at the factory.

    BTW, since AJKILL's solution did not work for you you will want to remove the Fixed rating you gave and give him a helpful at least or whatever you choose it is your choice. The person who gets a fixed rating will be the one who is credited with a, four dollar payment.

Hello,

In this issue found no issue on the tv and in the sony. You can try fixing the cable connection from the sony to the tv may it was lessen projecting bad image. Or maybe replace the cable if found erroneous.

Why i pictures in view finder always turn pink. Like a mouse pad is black on my desk when I take a picture of it, it comes out pink. My camera is a panasonic D


This would happen if the color balance was on the wrong setting. Check your user manual by looking for either color balance or white balance. You will want to return the setting to "automatic" or whatever the default is called. On many cameras it is easy to accidentally change this setting. It is used to reduce the yellow look of tungsten bulbs, the green of fluorescent, or the bluish tint of shadows.

Set the camera's white balance to match the lighting. Most indoor lighting has a yellowish cast to it, while by default cameras are set for sunlight.

When did you get this message? It seems like you have set the White Balance of the camera wrong. Set it to Auto White Balance to eliminate this problem. Use Daylight White Balance when shooting in bright daylight so as to eliminate any color cast in the image.

Sony DSC-H7 - Pictures have yellow tint


Take the Camera back and get a Cannon......

I bought the WSC-80 for my parents and had the same problem. You will get Sony reps on this forum (and other support forums) telling you to "set the white balance" and "it happens with all camera's because of the white balance."

They are trying to get people who haven't bought their P.O.S. camera to think the end user is the problem....you are not the problem.

I have sent my camera in twice now, once because it was blurry (they reset the lense....everything was fine) and now I am getting the yellow tinge on my pics.

I can take three pictures in a row (within seconds) the light is the same, settings are the same, people are the same, etc and two will be yellow and the other will be perfect.

Research all the Sony Models, they suffer from the same problem.....I will NEVER buy Sony again, I bought the "top of the line" for my parents for x-mas and sony made me look like a fool.

Shame on you Sony....

Check the WHITE BALANCE settings and the COLOR EFFECTS settings (marked as W. BALANCE and COL. EFFECTS when MENU is pressed).

When you got to the MENU setting, press up or down arrow until you reached either selection, press the left arrow, and you'll see several options under the selected function. In WHITE BALANCE, there's an option whether you'll be shooting under sunny or cloudy skies, tungsten or flourescent lighting, and an option to select Auto or Manually set White Balance. This affects the over all color tone as it compensates the color correction depending on your shooting conditions. Fluorescent lighting for example exhibits blue spectrum, thus setting White Balance to FLUORESCENT will add warm or yellow tones to the photo. Tungsten lighting and sunny conditions exhibits yellow lighting, and setting to the White Balance on this mode will add cool or bluish tone to the picture.

Same with COLOR EFFECTS: settings include WARM, COOL, SEPIA or BLACK AND WHITE (gray scale).

Chances are, you have accidentally set the WHITE BALANCE or COLOR EFFECTS to any of these. To see if this is the problem, try shooting under SIMPLE MODE (Marked with a HEART icon at the rotary dial on top right of the DMC-FZ7). If the problem goes away, then it is with the WHITE BALANCE and the COLOR EFFECTS settings. Try setting the COLOR EFFECTS to "OFF", and the WHITE BALANCE to "AUTO".

If all else fails, then you got a problem with the image sensor of your Panasonic DMC-FZ7 Digicam
