Resetting of White Balance

Hi,

I got a problem which I cant solve and hope someone can help.

I've prreviously set the White Balancing ordinary by pressing the
White Balance buttom.

Now I cant do it anymore, when I press it, the lightbulb blinks constantly
with an ' 0+/- ' to the right of it. It somehow does not set the white balance
at all.

Cant anyone help how to get rid of the ' o+/- ' blinking thing.

Many thanks in advance.

Hmm? I don't know if it will help at all but you might try re-stetting the camera to factory settings.

Hi

You probably have the WB switch set to "Pre". In this setting you then can chose between Outdoor, Indoor or turn in any Kelvin WB temp between 2800-12000. The choises Outdoor/Indoor/K is made by the small selector underneath the handle.

If WB-switch in "Pre" and in Outdoor and Indoor setting, the WB-button works a little different compared to if the WB-switch is set to A or B. If you are in "Pre" with Indoor/Outdoor selected, pressing and holding the WB-switch you are able to fine adjust the pre-selected colour temp range by the numbers -9 to +9 by turning the shutter dial.

My guess is that your WB will function as you are used to if you put the WB-switch to either A or B.

Regards,

/Bo
