Having problems with your Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera ?

Vertical lines & white screen outdoors

\015 Hi, Indoor pics have vertical lines across my images, and they seem hazy and yellowed around the edges. Taking a pic up real close and you don't get the lines, but thats not always a good thing with the flash back and or bigger items where you have to have a bit of distance between you and the subject.\015\012Also trying to take a pic outdoors (flash off) sun out, but took the pic in the shade, and I get a flashy white screen, with barely there image.\015\012Thanks in advance! :)\015

Hello, the other two replies are good answers, but it could also be the shutter magnet causing interferance with the picture creating lots of tiny lines accross the picture and causing the picture to be grossly overexposed.

\015\012In Australia these cameras do not have a ccd recall issue and in our workshop we have not had to replace any CCD's on these particular cameras.
\015\012
\015\012Lots of lenses though (as the shutter is not avalible seperate) with similar problems to as you have described.

\015\012Sorry for the bad news.
I've seen similar symptoms in broadcast cameras and it can sometimes be compensated for by lowering the "v-sub" voltages to the CCD. Not sure if that applies to your camera but it's an idea to check out.
Unfortunately it's not the kind of adjustment for a user. It's more likely found in a service manual for
technicians.

Olympus X-42 Camera - the screen has gone white (with a few thin green/purple vertical lines). When I switch on the camera the screen is white, there is no picture or menu displayed. I have checked by plugging it into the tv, and it takes pictures and goes into menus fine - it just doesn't display anything on camera screen. I have only had the camera for a week, and have not stored it anywhere humid. Is there anything I can do to fix, or do I just have to take it to get repaired?
