    Were these flash pictures?



    It sounds like a flash synchronization problem. I believe the maximum shutter speed you can use when doing flash photography on the N75 is 1/90 of a second, therefore if you are taking a falsh picture and you have the shutter speed set any faster than 1/90, then the trailing shutter curtain will not have enough time to get illumination so only part of the photo gets exposed, and thus a black strip appears on the image.

I can tell you exactly what is happening. This is probably either happening when you are taking a photo with a flash? The maximum flash sync your camera has is 1/125 or 1/60 of a second. If you set your shutter speed faster than that, you shutter closes too slow and creates that black strip. Put the shutter speed to 1/60 or slower and see if that happens. If you have a long lens on the camera, you have to have the shutter speed either equal or less than the focal length to shutter. 50mm lens=1/50 a second without a flash. Otherwise you could have a bent or broken shutter curtain blade. Maybe someone stuck their finger in there.

He can fix it if you blades are broken.

When making copies, only a part of the document prints; the rest is solid black.


Solid black in a copy typically means that the scanner is partially blocked. Open the top, where you'd place a sheet to be copied, and examine the small strip that runs down the side (left, most likely). See if it's clear, or if something is covering part of it.
Most copiers don't use the full size scanning plate for copies, but use a strip that scans the paper as it moves across it. If something blocks part of it, you get the black area.

Magnavox Color TV Model #27MT3305/17


The problem I was having was that the vertical deflection was collapsing on itself from the top. I'm a tech and I am visiting web sites who experience similar problems with the Magnavox 20 MT4405 in hopes of saving them time and money."Starsong" has the right answer. Replace electrolytic capacitor #2465. It is a
10 microfarad electrolytic capacitor rated at 160 volts. Although the existing capacitor appeared good,in circuit and out, the charge-discharge time was flat as compared with a new capacitor. Plus, when the capacitor is in circuit with full voltage applied, the capacitor leaks too much. The cost of the capacitor should be under $2. It should take under a half an hour to replace. Be certain to let your set rest, unplugged, for at least a half hour before attempting to replace this capacitor. There are high voltage present around the crt even after the set is turned off. The high voltages can cause serious bodily harm. I would suggest a tech discharge the anode on the crt with a high voltage probe passing through a volt meter and running to ground. You will need a soldering iron, solder ******, solder, and I like to use a little flux for good adhesion of component to board.

Bad picture developing


Since this happened on two seperate rolls of film, the problem may be that the shutter blades have been bent out of place.  This can cause the symptoms you describe.  Have a qualified technician look at the shutter.  Usually the blades can be reset.  In bad cases the blades may be bent or creased. If this is the case, the shutter may need to be replaced.
