Black and white pictures in P, S, A and M modes

edited July 2015 Posted in » Nikon D3100 Forum

In the P, S, A and M modes on my D3100, all the pictures I am taking are coming out in black and white only. This was not happening before (six months ago) but a setting must have been changed somehow. In all the other modes, the pictures are coming out in color.

Can you please help me restore the proper settings? I can't find anything to that effect in the user manual.

Thank you.

    Hey Raymond,

    Did you check if the picture control is on monochrome in the menu?

    Hi Howard, yes, it was set to Monochrome!

    Thank you very much. It is now fixed.
