Nikon COOLPIX 5100 Digital Camera

My Nikon COOLPIX 5100 Digital Camera all of a sudden is taking really pink photos. All info I have looked at points to white balance, but I have set this to auto and reset all factory settings, yet I still am getting pink photos where the white should be. Does anyone have any knowledge they could share with me.

This happened to me too!
Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.

SOURCE: Nikon E5700 digital camara.

There is a service advisory out for Nikon E5700.

t has come to our attention that in a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras, an electronic component may, in some instances, fail affecting your camera's performance and/or operability.

While only a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras are affected by this advisory, if your camera presents symptoms that can include (1) images with a strong color tint, (2) images that are totally black and/or (3) images with visible defects, Nikon will, upon confirmation that the problem is associated to this Service Advisory, service your camera free of charge.

Pictures are pink


Did you really drop the camera? because the pink could be caused by a misplaced lens. But you also should check if you did not change the strings to manual. Like manual White balance or scene. Try the camera in the automatic setting. Please check the type number you gave, because Nikon did not make a Coolpix 3200. And I think the S3200 is to new.

Recently, I have been experiencing trouble with my Nikon Coolpix P2. When I take photos, the picture comes out with faint white lines across them. The screen itself is fine, but once I press the shutter,...


Hello - from what you said - it sounds more like a sensor problem in the camera.
If the screen looks OK while sizing up a picture , then 'click' Image is stored on sensor which is read as one LARGE matrix of dots and stored into memory.
If the white lines start at this point - ie. viewing the picture while in camera and then after download.
Then, the problem started at the sensor.
I just did a (www.goggle.co.uk) and did a search for problems - and NONE apart from Wi-Fi connections to Windows7 -- all reviews were great.
I would connect Nikon to see what they recommend . -- Ray

All of my indoor photos I take with my Nikon Coolpicx 570 are tinted yellow. How can I fix this?


Incandescent lighting is yellow and shows up that way on photos. That's why digital cameras have white balance controls. Usually, auto white balance works ok but, sometimes you need to go into the settings and choose incandescent white balance to remove the yellow as you take the pics.

Nikon s710 pictures captured look yellow and darker than usual


Hi,

Can the white balance have been changed accidently?
This will make the pictures look yellow.
So will taking pictures indoors under artificial light.

The White Balance setting is under the shooting menu, try setting it to auto.

Hope this helps.

Better photos in florescent lighting


You need to adjust the white balance setting.
This is on the shooting menu.

The options on the white balance presets are.
Flash, Cloudy, Daylight, Fluorescent, Incandescent
Fluorescent is what you are looking for.
Remember to change it back to auto for outdoor shoting.

Photos turn out pink and washed out.


Please check if the camera is on Manual exposure mode. If so, turn it to Auto and try again. Also check the White Balance setting of the camera. If the White Balance is manually set, reset it to Auto and check.
I am not sure which camera model you are using, but if the model has a Dust Reduction function, the rattling sound could be because of that. If so, this is quite normal.

P5100 Nikon


I have the same problem as you... Nikon acknowledges that they have this problem on other Coolpix models, see: http://home.nikon-asia.com/pagearticle.php?pageid=43-7cc915b40d

Now, how do we get Nikon to acknowledge that this is a problem on the 5100 as well?
