Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W35 Digital Camera ?

Horizontal lines in viewfinder and in some photographs


Answers :

Actually this also could be a stuck shutter in the open position. Do pictures taken outdoors in sunlight show up overexposed?

\015\012A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
\015\012
\015\012To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

I was taking pictures outside using a tripod mounting and had my Fujifilm FinePix S5000 on in photography mode - Auto mode. Upon placing the tripod for a new photo, I observed that the LCD monitor had turned white with intermittent horizontal flashing black lines. The view through the viewfinder is also white but without the black lines. When a photograph is taken the image is white. I should point out that in Playback mode I can view previously taken photographs perfectly on both the moni

Screen Line There seems to be a line running horizontal in the viewfinder which is more noticeable outdoors in bright light. It causes a slight blur across the middle of the viewfinder. Is this normal or a defect? Thanks.

Please can you advise me? The fault appeared without apparent reason, and is that when you take a photo, thin horizontal black lines appear, and when you transfer to the PC the lines are still there. The lines only appear after you have taken the picture - whilst you are viewing the subject through the viewfinder everything seems just fine. Many thanks for anything light you can throw on this, otherwise very happy with the camera. Tony

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?

I have tried cleaning the lens with an "air duster: but has not helped. Any suggestions?

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.
