When you say 'played back', do you mean viewed on the camera screen, or after downloading to your computer ? If the latter, it could be to do with the software you are using - try FastStone.

I just replaced the ink cartridge in my canon printer and tried to print something. A box came up saying the alignment may be off and I need to print an alignment page. How do I do that?

Hello. To do a head alignment follow the steps below.
  1. Click Start - Control Panel - printers and faxes
  2. RIGHT CLICK on the canon printer and select printing preferences
  3. Select Maintenance from the top right tab (see image below)
  4. Select print head alignment and follow the steps on screen.

Stripes in coloured photos

This is possibly banding and can be caused by blocked injets or a faulty printer head. It is not seen on print because the spray pattern is grossly different on text than it is on creating pictures

Overexposure and horizontal-striped image

No, it's not a software problem. The problem is that the shutter doesn't work so it can't control the amount of light taken so the pictures are very bright with horizontal lines. There are usualy two causes - a broken shutter cable inside the lens or the shuuter blades are stuck - may happen if the lens get wet or something adhesive gets in it. It's a hardware problem so I suggest you contact local Canon or other camera service center. It is considered a hard repair so it could get expensive. I don't think it's worth it, so I would suggest you get another camera.

Hope this helps!

Casio EX-Z60 camera - photos are whitened or brightened

If you enlarge the picture you have just taken, is there same lines running accross the picture?

If so, the shutter magnets are causing interferance and causing the picture to overexpose and have tiny lines running through it.

In Australia the complete lens will need to be replaced as the shutter does not come seperate and this is very expensive.

Sorry for the bad news.

Colour printing

If the test patterns are not matching what your printer tells you is normal and your photos are banded horizontally, you may have clogged nozzles and printhead. Do a maintenace clean under your printers direction, and see if it now prints ok. Also, you may be low or out of one particular colour, but still have enough of the others and the printer will try to compensate by using available colours, hence colour banding and distortion. A manual clean with cotton buds and cleansing solution is recommended if the first clean does not help.

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. As this is caused by the aligned pixels on the LCD, this effect does not necessarily appear in pictures you have taken.
