Hi all
Went out to take some shots today and thought the white balance was on wrong setting as very strange colours green/red/blues tints on LCD screen.
Anyway to cut a long story short the images on computer (raw) are fine looks like its just the LCD any ideas, have i touched something or has something gone wrong?
regards
Roy

Sounds like a Custom Image preset has been set .... Maybe cross-processed or similar. Go and change the preset back to natural or bright for example.

The Custom Image settings only apply to the JPEG output, and the effects are displayed on the LCD.

You access the custom image settings with the 4-way controller, I think it's the right side selection . The presets appear in a line across the top of the screen and you use the controller to move through them, then the OK button to choose a new one.

Thanks Nigel that has worked perfectly, it was set to cross processing!!!
I am finding the buttons on the k3 are rather easy to accidentally touch and something starnge happens.Wish there was a lock facility!
