... Digital Cameras
It seems like most of my indoor pictures are either dark or has a redish color to the pictures. I took pictures on the auto settings for the scenes. Then I tried the party scene. But all seems pretty dark. The flash does comes on most of the time.
Make sure your options are reset to factory default just to make sure some option has not been changed by accident, like white balance or others, then make some test shots. If that doesn't correct the problem, here are some more suggestions.\01 ... Nikon COOLPIX S570 Digital Camera
The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off. Thanks, Steve

Faulty Lens? Sometimes when looking through the LCD screen the colours appear blended, overlapping and blotchy which makes it difficult to get a clear view of the item to be photographed. upon turning on (sliding open lense cover) screen view is distorted, "stretched", and item to be photographed is almost unidentifiable. Camera operates but pictures taken are "stretched" and distorted. However, stored pictures can be retrieved and are normal. Any advice?

I have a Sony DSC-F88 5.1MP camera... When you switch it on to any of the program modes - image dispalyed on LCD and photographed is distorted. Image is skewed with the edges of the image flaring with three colours to the edge. A kind of focus shift..low resolution image - sort of semi solarised picture. Any previous picture taken displays normal on the LCD... I have tried other memory sticks.. no change..

Dark pictures I have an Exilim EX-Z40 which i download to an apple powerbook via the USB link. The pictures when printed out look rather 'grey' rather than bright. This was very obvious when the camera SD card was recently printed out direct from a photolab rather than from the computer and compared to those printed out from the computer. The former were very 'bright' with fuller colours. SHould I be doing something different when connecting camera to computer?
Perhaps the lab is at fault? if iPhoto displays the pics with the correct dark/light profile then it is likely to be right. You can alter the profile in the edit window of iPhoto but it would seem the lab messed up. ... Casio Exilim EX-Z40 Digital Camera
While shooting the same daylight scene the camera will alternately produce good pictures and then pictures that are very dark.
It sounds as if the iris which adjusts to allow the correct amount of light to enter the camera is sticking. Maybe due to foreign matter being wedged between the vanes of the iris. About the only way I can think of to remedy the problem without visit ... Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera
Fiji Finepix F401 - I have had great success with the above camera but it has suddenly developed what I think is a sensor problem. The viewfinder displays a badly blurred and distorted picture which is green and purple in colour. The camera will no longer take any still or video pictures. To make matters worse, I recommended this particular camera to my father and his has now developed the same problem. Both cameras are out of guarantee.
I am sorry sir, this is due to extreme expsoures high temperatures and sun. Also please mind that ur CCD sensor has to be replaced.\015\012\015\012Thankyou ... Digital Cameras

My photos now seem to have a lot of vertical lines when downloaded. It's like peaks for each strength of colour distorting the picture.
The ccd imaging sensor has failed. The only solution is a new sensor, but it costs far more than the camera is now worth and is absolutely not a DIY fitting job. The Sony 5MP sensor in your model is now infamous for this fault and was fit ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

Try Shutter Priority mode (Tv). Adjust the shutter time for an extended shot of several seconds or more. Of course, recommend using a tripod to do this, and using the camera's timer to take the shot to minimize camera shake. ... Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera

Dark pictures I have a Canon EOS REbel T2 with the standard 28-90 lens. It had been working fine, but now my pictures are (almost all) coming out very dark and grainy. Further, I note that if I turn the camera 90 degrees to that a "portrait" picture -- 6" tall and 4" wide, I see a dark rectangle in the picture in the bottom right quadrant. I always set the camera to full program (the green rectangle). I have been using Fuji 400 speed file of late. Do you have any idea what I"m doing wrong?
Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure. ... Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera
Distorted image The image I see through the viewer is distorted(vertical lines). Also if I take a picture that comes up the same, all vertical lines? The picture looks good in the viewfinder but the actual picture is distorted---many horizontal lines thru the picture and the exposure is very very light. I have tried cleaning the lens with an "air duster: but has not helped. Any suggestions?

Dark Pictures Hi. 2-3 years ago my Dad bought a Kodak EasyShare DX6490 and it's worked just fine in the past. Now, unless you have full sunlight and a very bright day, it takes dark pictures. I was out today in the snow and took several pictures with it. While they look okay on the viewing screen, when I get them onto the computer, they're very dark. Can you help me? Thanks ever so much!

Image distortion I am having trouble when I download pictures onto my computer. The images look fine on LCD but once downloaded have either distorted color (streaks of green or other colors) or they have lines running through which make the images not aligned correctly. Each time I download pictures from the camera a greater quantity of pictures seem to be distorted and corrupted.
