Trying to take pics of my W905 is proving to be a pain in the arse.
Every pic has a blue tinge thats not there in real life, the tinge only effects the outer edge of an image pretty much where the leds are sat.
Ive read led lcd tvs refresh similar to CRT tvs scan lining the image which can prove tricky to photo as you have to get the shutter speed to match the tv. The problem there is I cant seem to find a setting on my camera that lets me adjust shutter speed and everything else I need. Its all either one or the other.
Very annoying.
Any help with this gang?

When I get my led mate I will experiment, I remember it was difficult to take pics of my lg leds,

If you stick it on a tripod nice n square to the screen have you tried toggling all through the WB settings whilst looking at the screen ?, try with room lights on and off.
