Yellowish lcd intermitant problem

My F717 has the same yellowish tint LCD problem as described earlier by jip328. The problem is intermittent and affected by jiggling of the camera. Sometimes it will clear up or get worse displaying a distorted view in an aura of colors and the yellowish tint. I contacted Sony repair, they said that this was not the CCD problem and would fix it for a flat rate of $211 and I pay shipping to them. Any other suggestions as to what it might be?

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

Have you tried replacing the cable first, I had a similar problem with my monitor(only it was blue tint). I would also check and see if the monitors connections are hooked up properly. I hope i could help.

I have a sony DSC-F717 and when I look at my image through the LCD screen everything is tinted yellow... this problem is intermitent, it comes and goes... downloading to computer, the pictures are fine......

The chip that drives the image to the LCD is faulty or the LCD screen itself is faulty. The problem will most likely get worse or continue indefinitely. The only solution is to contact customer service and see if you can get it repaired. If it is under warranty it should be a free fix but if that expired you will have to pay to get it fixed. Luckily though, the camera sensor is fine and it still will function but your display will continue operating oddly.

Aus monitor is dull and yellowish tint

You are missing Blue signal, check the VGA cable and all the pins at both ends, try it on another PC also.

Have a blessed one!

Yellowish tint on all channels

Hi, bad news guys, from your brief description you have a bad light engine, you both need to have a tech verify this but thats most likely what is causing your symptom. This is NOT a layperson repair, you`ll need a tech, BMW Rider
