Hi josh14
Yep, I have heard about this one. Not yet seen it myself. First thing I need to know is what browser you are using?
Do you get the same problem when you use different browsers?
Does it occur in any other applications?

If you can answer those questions I'm sure some will have the answer for you. I'll check the postings?

    Hi Josh
    Interesting one!

    As the ripples do not occur in application windows the issue is more likely to be some 'rogue code' running on your machine. I've come across sites being inverted or jumbled up!

    Before doing anything to drastic I'd install another browser like Opera http://www.opera.com/) to see if the problem persists. Do not import into the app any of your bookmarks, personal settings, plug-ins etc. You could even run a virus scan on your drive.

    If the problem persists you'll need to uninstall all your web app's and clear out all related folders and files. And then re-install a stand alone web app like Netscape or Opera only re-install Explorer of Firefox once the problem is sorted out.

    Unfortunetely, if the problem is still there you might need to to a clean system install (if you have the original install software and can back up all your personal data). That would be quicker than trying to track the software problem down.

    Sorry I cannot be of much more help.

Operates on it's own


If the water tank is self emptying you will notice that if you look at the surface of the water in the bowl that there is slight rippling of water - it should be perfectly still like glass.

The flapper is letting water out when it does not seal properly, hence the ripple effect on water. And when the water level gets past a certain point the water valve opens and refils the tank.

Replace the flapper for three bucks and that will do the trick.

HDTV Mitsubishi WS-55819 55 Inch Diamond Shield


You will need to contact a Mitsubishi Authorized repair facility. The entire electronics package must be removed and sent back in to Mitsubishi. The problem is the Formatter circuit board which is no longer available as a replacement part. The repair cost is very expensive and must be quoted by the facility you contact not me. Expect 4-6 weeks turnaround.

Ripples appear in the image when photographing an object with fine plaids or stripes. Why is that?


The following describes the symptoms, cause and prevention of the Moire effect. Symptoms of the Moire effect When you are shooting a subject that has a fine regular pattern such as stripes or plaids, a ripple that does not exist on the subject sometimes appears in the image. This effect is called the Moire effect. Why does the Moire effect occur? Digital cameras and camcorders are equipped with imaging devices such as CCD sensors and CMOS sensors that have pixels that are finely aligned horizontally and vertically that convert light into electronic signals. When the pixels and the pattern on the subject overlap slightly misaligned, an interference pattern occurs and a ripple that does not exist on the actual subject may appear. This is the Moire effect. Preventing the Moire effect You can reduce this effect by changing the distance, zoom setting or the angle of the image. If you are using a camera with manual focusing, the Moire effect can be reduced by simply changing the focus slightly. Reference You may find another Moire effect displayed on the LCD of the camera. As this is caused by the aligned pixels on the LCD, this effect does not necessarily appear in pictures you have taken.

Ripples appear in the image when photographing an object with fine plaids or stripes. How can I fix that?


When you are shooting a subject that has a fine regular pattern such as stripes or plaids, a ripple that does not exist on the subject sometimes appears in the image. An example of this can be seen in the pictures below. The photo on the left shows the fine plaids pattern on the shirt. The photo on the right is a distance shot of the same shirt. In this photo, you can see a ripple that is not visible in the photo on the left. This effect is called the Moire effect. Why does the Moire effect occur? Digital cameras and camcorders are equipped with imaging devices such as CCD sensors and CMOS sensors that have pixels that are finely aligned horizontally and vertically that convert light into electronic signals. When the pixels and the pattern on the subject overlap slightly misaligned, an interference pattern occurs and a ripple that does not exist on the actual subject may appear. This is the Moire effect. Look at the image above. This image shows red cross-stripes and black cross-stripes overlapped slightly misaligned. When you look at the entire image, you find a ripple that differs from either of the patterns. This is the same principle that causes the Moire effect. Preventing the Moire effect You can reduce this effect by changing the distance, zoom setting or the angle of the image. If you are using a camera with manual focusing, the Moire effect can be reduced by simply changing the focus slightly. Reference You may find another Moire effect displayed on the LCD of the camera.
