Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare DX6490 Digital Camera ?

Pictures with halos

\015 I have a Kodak DX6490. When it was new, it took wonderful pictures. Now it will automatically place a light spot in every picture taken. I have tried different SD cards - thinking that they were damaged - but it didn't help. I can't find anything loose or damaged but it continues to take poor pictures. Help.\015

Answers :

The light spot is not a matter of settings.

To reset settings you can go to camera menu and select reset to factory, but that will not solve the problem.

The SD card also has nothing to do with this kind of problem, when SD card is defective camera does not store file at all.

A white spot, or abnormal light areas, or a washed-out lookare unmistakenly symptom of water and humidity trapped inside the lens.

This can only be repaired drying out the inside of the lens assembly, and to do that you need to take apart the camera.

Taking apart a camera is a job that must be done by a qualified technician, unless you want to risk badly damaging the camera.

If you want to know the cost of the repair you can contact the website below:

DSC-T7 Blurriness Last week I purchased a DSC-T7 and I am having several problems with picture quality. Mainly, any white or light object in the picture (whether it be a t-shirt or a blanket etc.) has a extremely blurry edge, almost like a halo. Other areas of the picture then would be rather dark. I don't think it is an autofocus issue. I have set the EV to -1.0, the WB to Auto, the contrast, sharpness, and I everything else to normal. Can the camera be adjusted to fix this? thanks

Try this test:\015\012Mount the camera on a tripod or set it on a secure base and use the self timer to trip the shutter. Doing this will totally eliminate any possibility of camera shake causing blurriness.\015\012\015\012If the picture is still blu ... Sony DSC-T7 Digital Camera
