Question about Cameras

3 Answers

My Z1 suddenly started having white lines across the photos I take. Some are narrow and some wider, virtually wiping out the image. I thought it might be the memory card but it happens with a different one too. Might it be the battery? There is no indication that the battery is low. What else can it be? The camera is about 3 years old and this just started last summer. I can send you a picture to demonstrate the issue.

    The recommended solution ( change the battery and/or clean the lens) did not solve the problem. I bought a battery yesterday but the same issue remains. Did anyone take the time to look at the photo that I sent that demonstrated the problem?

    I read somewhere that there may be a formatting issue with the memory card when you take and delete photos. But I am unable to find anything related to this in the Z1 manual that I have. Does anyone know about this? I have two memory cards and the problem persists with both cards.

    Any help you can be is greatly appreciated. The two camera stores I was aware of are not gone in this digital age.

    Thanks,
    Rodney

    Since the one recommended solution I received did not solve the problem I have not received any other solutions. I uploaded a photo taken with the camera which nobody responded to. My camera still does not work, I apparently have been charged for a solution that I did not receive and I am utterly unimpressed with the "experts" on this site. Please someone do something to change my mind.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, this problem on a Z1 indicates a developing fault in the CCD lens. If not attended to professionally, it might lead to bigger problems in the very near future.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Look for a possible crack down the lens, this can cause white stripes

    another suggestion is look for foreign objects that may be trapped inside the lens area of the camera, for example, hair or small piece of material causing the distorted pictures

1/3 Hp 115 volt 24 year old motor 40 amps. single Phase. is this for 110 volt Plug in to wall.It also 3 wires , Orange,Red, White, were do i hook these up to on a 110 Plug. Can you Please help.


You looked at nameplate on motor to get the rating information?
Rating plate may also have small wiring diagram.

I was looking at AO Smith single-phase 2-speed pool pump motors yesterday.
The rating plates show wiring.
Open following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/AO-smith-rating-label-500.jpg

Notice the image shows the words: Brown White Line Line.
Brown and white are wire colors. Line means 'power' from breaker box.
240V will have two Line wires, L1 and L2. 115Volt will have Line or L1 and N or Neutral.
Look at your rating plate and then add a comment with clear description of what appears on rating plate, or include in-focus photo. Put your camera in macro to take close-ups.
http://www.fixya.com/support/r6568559-post_photograph_fixya_questions_answers

Your wall outlet has 2 plug-in slots. One is wider that the other.
'Line' will refer to Hot wire from breaker which corresponds to smaller slot on outlet.
'N' or 'Neutral' is neutral wire from breaker box which corresponds to wider slot on outlet.

  4. Close the document cover and make a copy of a text document to confirm the black line has disappeared.

The clue is with the video.
The video function does not use the shutter. Lines on photo's or over exposure is due to the shutter not closing completely over the lens when you take a picture.
It will require cleaning which means opening up your camera and accessing the lens unit

Make sure light does not shine directly on top of the scanner, if light goes in, you will still get lines...
Also: Try aligning the paper on the corner where the arrows are, and close the feeder guides.
