    I have Lumix G5 with H-FS100300 100-300mm zoom lens. It has been working fine for years.
    Yesterday, I pulled it out of my pack and turned it on, and the entire frame is in blue-shade now!! This is on "P" setting. This is not just the display, I took a couple of images and they came out all-blue as well. If I switch to SCN: Distinct_Scenery, the display is normal. However, on any other setting (P, A, S) it is blue. I'm guessing that I have some color setting configured wrong somewhere?? but I can't find anything that looks relevant. I saw a setting somewhere that listed "blue tint", but it was set to normal.

    Does anyone have any idea what is going on??

    Check your white-balance.

    Sounds like it might be on tungsten white balance.

    Yes!! Thank you!!!
    And the other problem was, I was trying to find that setting down in all the setup menus, but it's right there on the main ring!! Somehow it got set to White Set 2, instead of AWB as I wanted.
    Thank you very much!!!
