Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

Yellow tint on images


\015 I just got my Nikon D40x and the images are coming up with a yellow tint across them. I tried to shoot indoors and outdoors and even see if they would appear different when i downloaded them. They still have the yellow tint on them. Is there a setting you can change to adjust this problem?\015

Answers :

When i go to the white balance option on the menu, it says "This option is not available with current setting. " I haven't set anything different from the factory settings. Could there be a reason it's not giving me this option?
There should be a setting for white balance to be in auto. Check the shooting menu options

I have a Nikon Coolpix L110 and the pictures have a yellow tint when taken inside. I've noticed the yellow tint varies when I point the camera to different areas in the room. I've never had an issue like this with other cameras so I'm not sure what is causing this. I read the manual and there was really nothing to address this issue. Okay this may be stupid question but; Do you think raising the flash will get rid of the yellow? Thanks Marie Steel

My Panasonic DMC-TZ3 in any shooting mode produces the following both on the screen and in a captured image: a blurry, snowy, magenta-tinted (visual noise?) presentation.

I have never dropped the camera or exposed it to high heat or cold. I have 3 batteries and none produce any variance in the bad image. I've tied all settings and reset. Up until the

Also, when I switch the camera to live-view mode (shows exactly what the lens sees) it shows pretty much an entire green s

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.
