    Horizontal dark lines, but i just figured out that it just displays on white spaces. When i take a photo the white wall behind me gets the dark lines but i dont or the people in the picture doesnt.


    Should the sensor be the problem??? i dont think so because as i said, it just happens on white spaces.

Hi peter,
Video will not be able to display the dark lines becoz its samling rate is low and so it cannot display detailed image.

With your 6 MP camera , the reason for the images having dark lines is that,

The SENSOR present inside your digital camera may have been covered by dirt or it may have some lines over it. so it is obvious for the images to reflect that.

So i suggest you to check the sensor with your service center.
Else you can refer to this website for more support www.samsungcamera.com/customer/faq/cus_faq_list.asp

Hope this works...
Thanx peter.

Problem with my Magnavox DVD player, DP100MW8, picture dark and lines across the screen


Hi, if the lines are diagonal sounds like it is set to progressive scan mode-which means if there is not a switch on back saying P/S and interlaced then you need to connect to T.V. with component video inputs ( indicated by red,green,and blue colored R.C.A. plug inputs) and Pan and Scan capable-then in menu setting select interlaced picture output. hope this was of use, good luck prodzilla

The camera takes great pictures in dark areas, but once there is light sunlight or otherwise, there are lines across the pictures and the image is not shown, why?


Hi!
It's most likely a broken shutter cable inside the lens - happens to Samsung cameras all the time. You should be able to take videos in any conditions and pictures in low light conditions. The only way to fix this is to change the shutter unit with cable or whole lens unit. It should be expensive so I would recommend you getting a new camera, but this time not Samsung - they're pretty awful.

Sorry for the bad news!

Canon Hg 10 Vertical line on image


This camera outputs interlaced video files. That can be the lines you are talking about if you are playing it back on a PC. The camcorder itself will de-interlace the video during playback on the actual camera, but not the file. You have to either play it (60i) with a hardware or software player that de-interlaces in realtime, or export your video file into a progressive (or deinterlaced) format. Some cheap editors dont deinterlace. I use Adobe Premiere Pro and Sony Vegas.

"Unusable Signal"


Ok, I stopped short of going to Best Buy to get a new TV b/c my DAD suggested I pull the DVD player on another tv.

Dang it, he was right!. Same "audio no video" problem.

After playing with multiple buttons shooting blindly I found the [ I/P ] button restored the picture immediately!

This stands for Interaced or Progressive scanning:

from wikipedia

"Progressive or noninterlaced scanning is a method for displaying, storing or transmitting moving images in which all the lines of each frame are drawn in sequence. This is in contrast to the interlacing used in traditional television systems where only the odd lines, then the even lines of each frame (each image now called a field) are drawn alternatively."

So, my Dad says that "TV s are based on the interlacing" technology. I must have picked progressive scan while I was in the dark fast forwarding last week.

Television display


Hi,
In basic terms TV images are made up of hundreds of horizontal lines, with interlaced scan it will display in order line 1, 3, 5, 7 and so on and once it reaches the end it will fill in the missing lines 2, 4, 6 and so on until it starts again.
For progressive scan it will display the lines in order 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc.

cheers
