EX! and ATW

Since nobody brought this up it may be that my camera has a problem, although it just came from Sony service last week - I sent it out to repair a day after arriving brand new from BH - but it is still not doing a right auto white balance when in Full Auto or ATW unless I press the White Balance button. It behaves worst with interior lighting.
ex. with the camera in Full Auto;
-I am zooming on the window - ATW goes to 5700k
-I will pointing it back inside - ATW stays at 5700k with a red image although I have white objects and white door in view.
-I push the White Balance button - ATW goes to 2100k(good wb).

Why is that even in Full Auto mode, still does and accepts manual white balancing? I have two JVC's GY-DV500, and when in Full Auto, they do not accept manual white balance or any other manual adjustment.

Does anybody else have this problem, or should I send it back and fight Sony for a replacement?

Thank you,
Mike

I did and in the last two days I got only one reply and that was a question. Should that means nobody else has this problem?

Thank you,
Mike

Well it seems like a legit problem. I was in a editing contest and the footage was from a JVC camera with AWB on. The footage changed color instantly as needed ad if the EX is suppose to do that also then something is wrong. The thing though is a lot of users use manual WB which is why you may not get a lot of replies. If they're in a situation where they can't WB manually they may use a preset and color correct in post production. I know I do. Looked over your post in the EX and it looks like your getting replies. Try out what they're saying as it could possibly help. Good luck and take care
