Having problems with your Samsung Digimax L55W Digital Camera ?

White horizontal lines appear on the pictures. Is this a setting that can be changed or is the camera finished? Thanks



Answers :

Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble. This is a common problem on these models. It is either a faulty CCD sensor or LCD panel. If this is a problem while taking new images,however old images are still perfect - this indicates a problem with CCD sensor unless this is an indication of faulty LCD panel. Unfortunately, in both situations, repair is never advisable as the cost of repair would be high as compared to cost of the camera. It would be wise to invest in new camera. Be advised that if it is faulty CCD sensor, there were few recalls in the past for old models.So, it would be worth giving a call to their customer service and ask whether there is any recall or not. If not, they might offer a replacement in lieu of this camera at a highly discounted price.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

White Screen Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

Extreme overexposure Outdoor photos are mostly blank - white. Indoor photos are okay if there is very little light and I have it set on the "snow" setting. If there is light from a window then the indoor photos are over exposed as well, often with horizontal lines and/or blurry pictures. It seems that the shutter is open too long, but I don't know why. The ISO settings and the Exposure Compensation are set normally. I have 2 of these cameras, one works fine (but has a black fleck in the

I own a Canon GL2 Video Camcorder. While in the Camera Position, it appears on the view screen two horizontal white lines, one on top (1/4" from the top) and the other on the bottom of the screen about 1/4" from the bottom. Even though it does not affect the end result. It makes it very difficult to film as the lines don't allow me to center (align properly) the subject I want to film. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.
