Why are all my pictures pink

My camera is acting as if everything is pink and overexposed. Everything that should be white is pink.

    My photos have a yellow tinge, almost like being overexposed. It has only just started and appears to occur in artificial light.

    i have the same problem though it's mostly yellow when taking photos in an artificial light. it looks like the flash was off and it was shaky when taking the photo although that is not the case. it has started happening in the past few weeks and i've had the camera for about a year and this has never happened before. i even took it into the store and they said i need to send it away but i'm not sure if the warranty is sitll in place as i can't find my reciept.
    also, if you zoom in on the picture there are horizontal grainy lines.

    also, it is in auto.

    the ISO is normal, flash is on... everything is the same as i've been doing for the past year and now all of a sudden there are grainy lines going through everything, it's yellow tinged (like overexposed) but only with artificial light. when it is dark it works perfectly fine. i think my warranty MIGHT be up and i can't find my receipt. i just know i bought it sometime early last year. could be up or i could've bought it within a year. didn't use a credit card so i can't check my records to prove when it was i bought it.
    i'm VERY dissapointed in olympus. i had a camera retailer look at it and all he said was to send it off but it's too much money if i have to pay for it. i'd rather get a new camera but i don't want to go with olympus if that's the case even though i've had many cameras with them and have been a loyal happy customer for years.

    heeeeeeelp me!

Camera makes overexposed pictures wiht lines can this be a software problem ?

Nope, this is a hardware problem and the camera needs to be worked on. Notice how your display works fine but the finished product exhibits the anomaly. The recording end is messed up.

When I take a picture,then look at the LCD screen,all the white areas flash black then white. If I download the pictures everything is fine. Is something set wrong? Also for no reason the flash stopped...

The blinking indicates blown-out highlights. Those are the areas of your pictures that have been overexposed into pure white. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the correct fix in most cases is to reduce the exposure to bring back details. Losing details in the shadows is generally more acceptable. But this is just a warning: the camera doesn't know what effect you're trying for.

While viewing a picture, pressing up/down on the multiselector cycles through the different available views of the picture.

Taking a picture, everything that is white is pink and dark pics

Oops, it looks like you have a couple of annoying problems with your Kodak camera.

Is your camera still in warranty by where you bought it (30 days) or the manufacturer (1 year)?

White colors come out pink and the wth bal is auto

I replied your question about pink tint noise in picture.

Bright white exposure

This may be a ccd problem.
See this link.

Which mode are you shooting in?
You may have adjusted the exposure compensation so everything is washed out.

Whatever the cause, your images are overexposed. Try shooting in auto and the camera should take over the settings, but if you are in other modes, check your shutter speed, aperture, & ISO also. These are all things that can cause too much light and wash the picture out/OVEREXPOSE.

If you have any other questions or can give me more details, just ask!

Hope this helps!

Overexposed photos in otherwise normal settings in casio ex-s500

It is the shutter (or at least it was for me) I found a simple test here: http://www.mydc.com.tw/repair/knowledge_en/casio-exilim-ex-s600-overexposure-t17.html
I repaired it myself, but it took me a whole afternoon and lots of patience.
The hard part is taking the camera apart, once I got to the shutter I just activated it manually so to dislodge any pieces that might have gotten jammed, then placed it back together again and it worked! :).
It's really hard to take apart, it's like a puzzle sometimes, to find which screws are keeping it together. I also had a bit of hard time when it came to put the zoom back together again.
But I guess it beats throwing the camera away.
I'm still puzzled on how the CCD works so that an overexposure would make horizontal overexposed lines, but everything points to that. Fixed shutter, lines be gone.


try it in auto mode if it is the same condition do u feel change in color like white turning pink or purple or sort of over exposed pics as u said then i worry that ur CCD HR is going to faulty in coming days later on pics will get pink and purple and then ccd stops working completely , i hope this is not the case do let me know if i can help u

Send out for repair or replace camera if not under warranty.
Main Processing Unit has gone south. This happened to me twice in 16 months. First repair was within warranty. Out of warranty repair costs more than camera's purchase price
