Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE G400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lines across picture display.

When I take a picture it has horizontal lines (like a woodgrain) throughout and the colours are very extreme. This doesnt show up before I take a picture. Ive tried changing memory cards and using different settings but it doesnt fix it. Does it need repair?

Re: Lines across picture display.

Yes it needs repair. by saying "This doesnt show up before I take a picture" this means their is no problem with the ccd or image taking section. the problem is occouring while saving the camera needs repair.

My display screen is showing pixelated noise, or completely black. When it does display, all I get are off colour, horizontal dancing lines.

Camera is defect for sure, but don't tell anyone in the service centre, because they warn you not to take a camera out in extreme cold. You should not se the camera in environments below zero degrees
I'm afraid you can't fix it yourself, and before bringing it to a Canon Certified repair centre, ask them what it could cost.

Lines across picture and extremely bright

It looks like the CCD has problem. but you can try to reconnect the CCD cable first. if it doesn't help, you need to replace the CCD or lens unit.

Horizontal lines across pictures

Probably a problem with the chip - this model had a recall and free the manufacturer for details

Lines across the LCD screen

Two things can cause lines across the LCD either horizontal or vertically. The first (and most likely) is a small crack in the display wafer. LCD stands for Liquid Cristal Display. They are very fragile and can be easily damaged if dropped. I broke one in my pants pocket.

The second would be if a pin on the ribbon cable (to the LDC wafer) was not making good contact. If you disassemble the camera it is possible to clean the contacts using contact cleaner (or alcohol). Only attempt this is you are willing to replace the camera if you don’t put it back together properly.

Horizontal LINES

If you are getting fine horizontal lines thet means the picture is over exposing. most probably the apparture or the shutter blade mechanism is not working fine. needs repairs.

Horizontal Plaid Lines throughout the picture

You mentioned the Magnet possibility, check around its location or move it to another site. Check also cabling where it runs and connections swap USB connectors or even if you have other USB stuff running that you could do with out. Its all a process of elimination before you have to decide to bin it.
