lighting temp/WB issues with their 200U?

My camera sometimes seems to switch color on my for no reason... it will flash and hang around and turn to a different tint... Like as if it's jumping from 5600 to 3200 for example. Then it will go back to normal. Has anyone ever experienced this?

try restoring factory settings. Check if the button is not jammed so it's causing the switch. If it still happens, it might be a firmware issue so you'll need to get it serviced.

I had somewhat similar issue but it had to do with the viewfinder:

When you turned the camera on, the video in the viewfinder looked good. After few minutes of operating, it would lose the blue color information (so it almost look like night vision). Everything else (video out, LCD, 1394, etc) had good color. I had to send it in for warranty.
