LCD display has a yellowish tint

The LCD display on my camera suddenly has a yellowish tint--even the menus are yellowish rather than the white color they used to be. If I photograph a blue object, it looks green onscreen. The pictures are the proper colors after downloading them, however, so it seems to be just a display problem. So far I have tried resetting the camera and adjusting the white balance (which I don't think is what's wrong, since the menus are yellow too). I did have the CCD fixed a few months ago, so I'm hoping this isn't related to that again. Any ideas?

Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, yellowish tint,pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

The color suddenly changed to where everything has a yellowish tint. And now the display is too wide to fit on the screen. How do I get it back to normal?

Right-click any free space on the desktop, choose properties, choose display, change the settings to 32-bit and which ever screen ratio you want.

Exposure dark / yellowish tint

The noise reduction aspect of this camera can cause some of this--you may wish to reduce the noise reduction in the quality settings of the camera (see your manual for directions) further, if you are open to post-production fixes you may wish to use a program like Adobe Lightroom2 to correct some of this. Finally you may wish to shoot indoors using the RAW or RAW+JPEG setting. Doing so will give you more control over post-production color correction, and somewhat less artifacting from the noise reduction software.

Yellowish tint on faces, shadows, gold backgrounds

Check the white balance setting of the camera. As you have a yellow cast, it could be because you are using it in Fluorescent (or Tubelight) setting. Changing this to Auto should solve this problem.

Mitsubishi CS-40707 Greenish/Yellowish Display

Yeah, I had mine checked for the same thing. The "blue" - There's only three - red yellow blue- portion of your tube died. Not repairable. Last I checked it costs at least $1,000 for a new 40 inch tube. Good luck. Mine went to the garbage dump!

Sanyo 5.0 megpi( yellow tint)

yellowish color is due to the light your flash gives when taking pictures. i suggest you bring that to a service center and let them take a look at your camera...probably needs a bulb replacement.

Yellowish lcd intermitant problem

Problem is in bad contacts in LCD area. In some cases it is sufficient only to clean the flat cables connecting LCD and the main board. The solution for this kind of problem is a job for a pro. In order to stay on a safe (rather than sorry)side, please contact a technician with the best references. If you need more info please advice
