Using camera flash, white background is light green. Tinkering with settings hasn't helped.

Hi

It's all in the title really :)
I've acquired this mini from my daughter as I needed a phone with a decent camera.
None flash pics are great, but the flashed ones are quite green tinged and really awful.
I've had a fiddle with settings, but nothings really changed.

Any ideas please on a cure?

Thanks yet again ;-)

First try setting the white balance when the camera is seeing nothing but a white paper (it doesn't have to be in focus).

If that doesn't work, set it to automatic white balance.

(Make sure there's no plastic film covering the flash - if there is, you're shooting in whatever color light the plastic film is, and the camera can't change color balance that fast.)
