Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera ?

Pictures have a red cast in the background.

\015 Camera was working fine until Christmas 2008. All the pictures taken have a reddish color in the background. I reviewed my manual and could not locate anything that addresses this problem. Typically I use the AF setting. Any guidance to correct this problem would be appreciated. Thank You! Canon Power Shot S1 IS - 3.2 mega pixels - 10 x optical zoom.\015

White balance I have an ongoing problem with all my images having a stronge red / yellow color cast to them. It does not matter if I'm in the daylight or shooting under flouresent lights. When I use my flash the area directly in front of the flash is usually ok, but where the flash falls off, the immediate area has that color cast to it. Example: If I take a picture of the front fender, of a vehicle from six feet away, the fender is usually ok but the chrome wheel, tire and pavement have the red

My Olympus C-770 camera will not record movies beyond a few seconds. It seems like anything over 30 or 45 seconds just gets corrupted.

Picture error I have an Olympus SP-51OUZ camera. Nearly every photo I take, when reviewed, comes up with 'picture error' and a big warning exclamation mark (in red on a blue background). Only about 1 in 20 photos taken are ok. I have formatted the card but it still happens. When I used the card on my laptop it scanned it & said there were no problems with it. Obviously it's a nightmare because I have to review every single photo to check it has come out! Please help! Rachel

My pictures have a yellow cast to them and they are not very sharp. When I take pictures outside, my photos are invariably washed out. I find myself manually adjusting light balance before I print (either darkening if I take picture outside or lightening if I take the picture inside). I almost always use Auto mode. I have found nothing that corrects the nasty yellow cast.
