I just pruchased a Nikon D80. The images appear correct on the camera and on the computer screen but prints are coming out with a blue tint. I have the latest firmware update and no other problems with the camera. Printer is a an HP C7180 and produces good prints using point and shoot cameras. I've used and SLR camera before but this is my first digital SLR. I keep thinking I'm missing a setting somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Nikon D80 Prints
Have you had the picture printed at a local photo lab. Try that and see if it's your computer/printer matching.
You may have to see if the Camera is set for Adobe RGB (or RGB) and your computer/printer is set for Adobe RGB or sRGB. These need to match. There's a new world with color matching that the point and shoot don't do.
Hope this helps. I could regurgitate all about Color Matching, but why when someone else has it all written out.

If the colors are washed out on the LCD screen but appear OK on your computer, the problem is likely with the LCD itself.
If the color is washed out in both the LCD screen and on your computer, you can try adjusting menu settings to intensify the color on the images. Also, you might want to reset the camera to its default settings. I can do that on my D-90 by simultaneously holding down the "AF" and "+/-" buttons on the top right hand side of the camera. Holding down those buttons for about ten seconds will restore the default settings.
If these steps don't help, return the camera to the seller for a replacement.
Are you trying to put dates on imaages from the D80 or the Powershot? If on the D80, you have to go through the menus to enable dae imprinting.
i ams ure it is the sme on the powershot. On the D80, press the Menu button and usin g the up'down/lt/rt control, navigeate till you highlight the icon on the left side to the playback menu and press directional button to the right, the press down to Print Set, then prees right again for that submenu. When there, highlight the image to be printed and use up/down to select number of prints wanted, the highlight another image, etc. until prinyd wanted are chosen. Complete print order and display menu of print options. Press multi-selector up/down and choose Data Imprint. When highlightad, Press multi-selecter right and highligh Print Date and press multi-selecter right again. A check mark should appear. To complete print order nhighlight done and press multi-selecter right. Follow section i user guide on Printing.
The D80 does not use the LCD screen to take images. The screen is only used to review images and use the menu system to check or change camera settings. When shooting, you need to use the viewfinder above the screen.
