Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera
Hi, Indoor pics have vertical lines across my images, and they seem hazy and yellowed around the edges. Taking a pic up real close and you don't get the lines, but thats not always a good thing with the flash back and or bigger items where you have to have a bit of distance between you and the subject.
Also trying to take a pic outdoors (flash off) sun out, but took the pic in the shade, and I get a flashy white screen, with barely there image.
Thanks in advance! :)
Hello, the other two replies are good answers, but it could also be the shutter magnet causing interferance with the picture creating lots of tiny lines accross the picture and causing the picture to be grossly overexposed.
In Australia these cameras do not have a ccd recall issue and in our workshop we have not had to replace any CCD's on these particular cameras.
Lots of lenses though (as the shutter is not avalible seperate) with similar problems to as you have described.
Sorry for the bad news.

I've seen similar symptoms in broadcast cameras and it can sometimes be compensated for by lowering the "v-sub" voltages to the CCD. Not sure if that applies to your camera but it's an idea to check out.
Unfortunately it's not the kind of adjustment for a user. It's more likely found in a service manual for

This sounds like CCD sensor ( se enclosed image )on its way out . Will get worse untill the sensor does not generate any image at all. Has to be replaced; we do not repair them. See if Samsung agent in your are will be prepared to fixed no charge as Sony , Canon and Nikon repair this particular fault even if the camera itself is out of warranty.
