Did you try cleaning the little glass strip where the documents go in? Lift the button panel and wipe the glass with rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs or lens paper if you have it. Mine does this sometimes when dust or white out or little bits of paper get stuck on the glass.
Good luck!

Horizontal line with different color exposure above and below line on Canon Rebel t3i


Does this occur only on the camera, or is it visible on your PC during PP operations ?

Two faint white horizontal lines


the white ghost lines are down to the charge wire within the toner cartridge being dirty, the only real way forward is to replace the toner cartridge as access to the charge chorona wire is not possible without ruining the cartridge itself

Horizontal line (similar to scan line) in all photos


Hello avatar1.jpgbaickerboy1! I was wondering if you ever figured out what was causing the horizontal line in your camera? I am having the same exact problem with my camera and am searching the web for a solution. Thanks in advance for any information you can give me.

When I scan 4x6 photos there is a line (sometimes green) across the entire photo that used to not be there. Scanning larger 8x11 photos the line does not show or when scanning documents. Help! I'm in...


If line is vertical.

Try scanning a bigger document. Use a blank page big as the scan capacity and scan the blank page.

If for example you are using an a3 scanner, scan a blank A3 page.

When scanning blank page set resolution to an high value, so that you does not lose pixels.

Check scan result, and explore the whole document using zoom to see if the line is still present on the test scan of the blank page.

If there is still the line, then it is either a scanner dirty, probably inside glass, or a dafective sensor on CCD sensor array.

If there is no line, then the problem is usually depending on the software.

In that case uninstall the software and install it again.

If that is not enough to fix the problem, try uninstalling software, doing a system restore to a date before the problem started , and then installing software again.

If the line is horizontal , that is usually a loss of power on the high voltage to lamp.
Try reinstalling software first, if that does not fix the problem , and line is horizontal, then it is fault mentioned above.
Horizontal lines at the end of a document may also be caused by faulty scanner control board, or scanner going out of memory.

Horizontal Lines through the photo


Horizontal may not be due to the CCD sensor. It can be due to the lens itself. I swap lens from a non-working camera to replace the one with horizontal lines. I found out that I was able to get the camera to work to take great pictures.

Pandigital mini photo scanner pictures have white lines on them


have a pandigital scanner that worked great for about 500 pics then lines stared to show up, tried cleaning and calibrating but did not help, decided to take apart and found that the glass on the surface of the scan part was dirty, cleaned the glass and put back together works perfect, took about 10 minutes to fix

Overexposed photos in otherwise normal settings in casio ex-s500


It is the shutter (or at least it was for me) I found a simple test here: http://www.mydc.com.tw/repair/knowledge_en/casio-exilim-ex-s600-overexposure-t17.html
I repaired it myself, but it took me a whole afternoon and lots of patience.
The hard part is taking the camera apart, once I got to the shutter I just activated it manually so to dislodge any pieces that might have gotten jammed, then placed it back together again and it worked! :).
It's really hard to take apart, it's like a puzzle sometimes, to find which screws are keeping it together. I also had a bit of hard time when it came to put the zoom back together again.
But I guess it beats throwing the camera away.
I'm still puzzled on how the CCD works so that an overexposure would make horizontal overexposed lines, but everything points to that. Fixed shutter, lines be gone.

Fogging Picture


try to use the zoom function during picture preview and you will see the horizontal bands. Time to change to a new CCD i guess..or maybe a new camera :-)

Pictures no longer show up, only partyl horizontal lines


It is the CCD and it is a defect, no fix that is economically feasible unless you get a parts cam of Ebay and make one good one. Too bad Sony will not fess up to this model as they have with some other "newer" models like the F717 as it has really put a cloud over the post consumer digital camera market.
