Our company bought the Sony DSC-F717 about 3 years ago (manufacture's date of Septermber 2003) and until recently it took great photos. Now all of the photos have a reddish cast to them even if we manually set the white balance with a white card. Sometimes fine horizontal lines will appear in bands in the photos. The photo I've uploaded is of a white car but only looks white in certain areas of the car and has shades of pink in other areas.
The photos don't have the realism look to them even if we try to color correct the photos on the computer. And there have been times that all colors seem to disappear in the viewfinder except for red. It does not seem to exhibit the problem involved in the Sony recall from the class-action lawsuit so we are afraid to send it to them and have them charge us a bundle to fix it.
Has anyone else seen this problem and know a solution?

Re: Reddish cast in photos, white objects look pink.
the cause of the problem can be CCD imager. So, the best solution is to claim for Sony recall. If there is some other problem ask for the price estimate. Please contact the nearest Authorized Sony Service.

It might be a possible CCD defect , as usually the symptoms are odd colours in a photo hence your red tinge in your photos.Its quite expensive as it labour intensive to fix .Rather just buy another camera or you can try to solder another ccd from anotehr camera > look on ebay for parts (not recommended precise alignment needed).
Camera symptoms shows bad CCD Imager in camera and this part needs to be replaced.

So you bought the camera but didn't make a good choise :)
Yeap, the "four only options" in the Sony F55 in the White Balance Function are what you said. You have to have that in attention when buying a Digital Camera.
About the White Balance > Hold, the intention is to adjust the white balance acording to an object. After you select the option, to use it you just have to point the camera to the object, press half off the shutter button to focus, then you chose the angle and press the rest of the shutter button.
On the other cameras those options improve the quality of the skin tones and colors of your subjects reduzing color temperature.
