Having problems with your GE A730 Digital Camera ?

White streaks on all photos but not video

\015 I have a Canon A95 and have never dropped it. I was taking a photo indoors and the picture came out fine. I took another photo a few minutes later and the photo came out faded with tons of white lines going through it. I tried different settings, changed camera cards and even used the timer to take the photo. Nothing helped. The video recorder still works. The shutter makes a ton of noise and you can see the it open and close. While it opens and closes the picture on the display goes bright and then regular, bright and then regular. Then it takes the photo with white lines throughout. What is weird is, nothing changed from the time I took the first photo to the second.\015\012i have a GE A730 that I received for a gift in August. We haven't had any problems until I tried to use it yesterday at the zoo and was getting the horizontal white lines through out every picture in various lighting conditions with and without flash. I tried different batteries, a different memory card nothing helped. The vidoe works fine. Any help would be most appreciated.\015

White out Every photo I take seems to white out, as if it is letting in to much light. But it is more than this, as it is possible to see white streaking on the image as well. I have also tried taking photos in various manual settings, resulting in the same problem. It seems to be a little better in doors. However when I use video mode the image is normal. This problem first occured on holiday in Singapore - when I took it into a shop out there they said it was probably the heat. But the problem

I applied lens cleaning fluid directly to the lens of my camera, a Fuji F50FD digital compact, but it seems to have leaked into the lens housing. Any photos I now take appear with mutiple fine white streaks across them. Curiously, when I shoot in video mode the footage appears completely unaffected. Is this something that I can fix myself - is it just a question of taking the camera apart, then cleaning the inside with care? Or would the lens housing now to be replaced?


This is not something I would recommend you do without the proper knowledge or alignment tools. You would probably just end up with a brick instead of a camera. Sending it to a repair center would be very expensive. Possibly much more than the camera ... Fuji Finepix F50FD Digital Camera

I've got a Fujifilm F30. Since yesterday, its not working properly. When I take photos, it 'absorbs' too much light and indoor photos becomes really bright and outdoor photos becomes nearly white from brightness. And when I transfer the pictures to computer, it has minor lines accross the picture. The video mode seems to be unaffected. What is the problem and is it worth fixing ? Would like to fix it if I can as F30 is still considered one of the best compact camera Fuji has ever made ! Thanks.
