Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Some pics have solid gray areas blocking part of the pic

\015 Some of my digital pictures have solid gray areas (square/bars) on part of the picture when I download them (usually the bottom 60-80% of the picture). They look fine on the camera screen but not on the computer. I purchased a new memory card hoping this would fix the problem...but it didn't. Any ideas on how to fix the problem?\015

Answers :

Many digital cameras will display a thumbnail representation on the lcd and not the actual picture (for speed). So the problem is with the picture itself and if it is consistent in ALL of your pictures, it points to a problem with the imager. If the problem is not with all of your images, it could be a lighting issue. Try taking a picture of a solid white wall that is well lighted and see if the problem persists. If not, make sure your lighting is brighter.

On my PENTAX Optio Z10, the slide shutter cover came loose, it slides left and right to open and close. I didn't lose any parts but I can't slide it back on.
