Droid2 Camera Fine but Camcorder Inverted Colors? - 02/26/14 06:45 PM

This is a droid 2 from 2010. I don't use it, but plan on using it as a combination bluetooth obdii scanner and dashcam.

The camcorder has ... strange .. colors, but the camera (still) works fine.

Any ideas?

Did you look into the video recorder settings to see if some special "creative" mode was not turned on?

Yup - but this phone doesn't appear to have any

I had that happen on a Chinese android phone I have.

Even though I had not changed the defaults, I "restored" the camera defaults, and the video colors went back to normal.

Like yours, this was only on the video function. The still function always worked properly.

Finally got around to restoring it back to factory defaults. Strange ... There was no setting that would have caused it.

It's now spending the rest of its life as a dash cam!
