Why do my pictures display with lines across them? It looks like window blinds :(


Hi dear!
1. If you see like window blind on LCD when you camera switch on at camera mode. Check one more thing, press menu botton. You still see like window blind on LCD. and then you have defective LCD unit. Otherwise, you have shutter blades (not dust cover blades in front of lens) defect inside of lens unit assembly.
If LCD defect will be very inexpensive service and easy, otherwise, you bring to local repair shop. (very easy problem)

If Actual picture come out like window blind image,
then I want you load to computer and open the file.
You still see like window blind image. then 200% is the shutter blades not working properly inside of lens unit. Bring to local repair shop unless you are not able. Then I can give a little monkey job! using a tooth brush!

Hope You Luck! A Professional Camera Clinic Guy!

Screen gone blank


Hi there:
Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Lens out, Camera on, power light flickers on and off


Hey kyla_peyton,
If this camera turns off during use it should mean either the batteries have gone dead or there is a malfunction in the camera. It sounds like you have eliminated the chance that this is a battery failure. There are many malfunctions in the camera that could cause this so I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

7d camera stutter..........


vibrating sounds, flashing shake indicator, shutter won't release...

It's a fault in the camera and has to be repaired at the shop, Sorry, I know it's not the answer you were hoping for, but it's a depressingly common problem on the 5d/7d forums.

Help... white lines


I also have the same problem! I absolutely love this camera but suddenly out of the blue I have stripy lines on the screen that look like you are looking through a venetian blind. I have contacted Fuji but they say it will cost £99 to repair or have offered £50 discount on any other camera. I just want my F460 working ok. Please, please can anyone help us?
