My camera (Sony DSC-T100) is about 3 years old. It has worked perfectly in that time but recently, outdoor photos show a lot pink where it does not belong (sky, side walks, etc.). Indoor pictures still look great, with or without flash. Sounded similar to some of the bad CCD discussions I have seen, but my camera seems to have been built after that problem was supposedly fixed by Sony. I tried calling the number (866-703-7669) I have seen in several postings, but it does not seems to work.

When trying to take a picture the color is off. It shows a purple tent on the screen, but there are old photos on there that are shown in normal color. It suddenly switched to giving everything the purple tent and has grainy lines going across the screen. I have tried to reset the settings to see if that would help but it hasn't. I haven't tried to upload any of the photos with the purple tent to see if they come up normal colors on my computer. Thank you!

I have a problem with a Cannon Power Shot A610 as follows: The monitor is dark when the camera is turned on and the camera will not take photos. The playback works OK for reviewing photos previously taken before this problem developed.

Hi. Very unhappy with quality of Ixus 80is photos. They are not at all sharp, milky, with no depth, in various light conditions. I did comparison identical rural scenic photos with the canon and 2 different 5 megapixel phone cameras. In most cases, the Nokia N95 camera results are far superior to the canon. I have read nothing but good reviews about the quality of pics from this camera so I'm wondering why mine are so bad. Any ideas?
