Help: K5 suddenly turns everything blue
9 months ago

Recently my K5 suddenly made all image captures with a strong bluish cast, both with flash (external Vivitar 285) or by available light. I switched to my K20 to finish the job and everything came out fine with that.
Once home, I reset the K5 to default settings and the bluish cast went away. Did I do something wrong to cause the issue? I'd like to know so I can avoid it in the future.

As usual, I was shooting in RAW in X mode with the flash, and TAV mode for available light.
