Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

The color balance of the video output from my Sony DCR-PC100 is off, especially in the green/yellow range. Color balance looks right on the LCD screen, but when output to tv or PC screen, color balance is as mentioned above. Otherwise, camera seems to be operating fine. What would you suggest be done? Thank you


Answers :

Can you do a manual white balance by shooting at a while board to set it? and then check the output.

Should you have done this and there is no change then a chip is failing on your camera board.

If you are in warranty you're in luck, but if not, you need to have service. Some white balance oddities can be corrected in software with your application program, but if auto equalize, auto adjust, etc. is not working either then you don't have much choice.

I thought through whether a firmware update would do it for you but you would have to talk to the maker. My guess is no. Relying on firmware updates for all our fixes is a crutch we lean to heavily on.

Sorry there is no easier answer than this. Maybe another tech has an answer. Well, have to see. Sorry for the bad news.

My camera is only 4 years old. I am getting low light on my inside taken pictures. I've tried the different flash settings and the color compensation and white balance, which don't seem to help. Any suggestions? I also have the battery compartment door taped on, which is not strong enough, anymore. Can I order a new part for that, or should I just buy a new camera?

I want to take black and white photos on my Casio Exilim EX-Z30 Digital Camera. Is there a setting that allows me to do this? I have checked the instructions but it doesn't seem to mention how I can change the colour settings, just the White Balance. Am I only able to take colour pictures?

BROKEN LCD Today, I had my camera in my camera bag. Somehow, the screen got busted. I took out my camera to take a picture and the entire full screen view is cracked. The camera turned on and off just fine; it seems that only the screen was damaged. No images are shown when I attempt to look at the pictures I took and when I try to take a picture, I cannot see anything on the screen. Is the screen repairable or is it best to purchase a new digital camera?

My Canon PowerShot A85 hasn't been used much. Every now and then - when I switch the camera on - I just just get purplish mess on the screen. It's not the screen itself that doesn't seem to function (the review mode with taken pictures does work). The CCD seems to be malfunctioning. But then, after a while and while, the camera just decides to act normally again. Could it be I need new firmware? If so, how and where can I download that? Thank you for your attention. Frank.

My panasonic DMC ZS3 camera purchased on 12/14/09 has started showing vertical multicolored stripes on the viewing screen in all modes.
