Wude light "band" or stripe at the top of each image

My D-300 started showing a light bright band or stripe at the top of each image. I removed the lens and same happens when I "shoot" without a lens.

Does anyone know of this problem? What shall I do?

    I talked to the service center in israel and they also suggested restting it, but it did not help. they think it might be a damaged sensor. asked to bring it in. it is soooo frustrating. it is 3 months old or so. but parting from it for a week repair is not what i need now... so i am still hoping for a magical solution if anyone can suggest one... THX!!! yoav

Yoav_etiel,
Try to reset the camera first, second don't operate the camera (on) without the lens attached, the shutter can get damaged. If you purchaed this camrea recently (new) it can be serviced, within a year it can be sent to Nikon for evaluation. If it is used or past the maufacturers warranty find a reputable shop to look at it.

Why does my TV show discolored vertical bands and can I fix it at home?


The T-con board controls the picture elements on the screen. Usually replacing this board will solve the problem. If you can touch the screen and the lines disappear and later reappear, that says the screen itself is defective. The only fix is to replace the entire screen.

Savin 2545 document feeder gives a gray band on the copies


Yes - surprisingly - we had the same problem, the gray stripe along the side of the page only showed up when the original was fed through the document feeder on top. Cleaned the small area of glass under the feeder repeatedly with no change to the resulting stripe, but then while cleaning the upper roller, above the area of glass where the scan lamp illuminates during the copying from the ADF, we found a small piece of paper adhering to the top roller in the paper path, cleaned it off, and no more band. We didn't see the bit of paper on the upper roller until we rolled it while cleaning. Still can't figure how that made a stripe....but hope this helps you.

I have a viewsonic pj500 projector which has functioned perfectly for 5 years. Now the area around the image area either shows a dark blue with dark stripes and the image area has a yellow cast which seems...


LCD projector 101, your blue device is dying inside of projector. Consider purchasing a dlp based product, they do not suffer from color decay.

Really you are blessed , most lcds last about 3-4000 hours or 4 lamp changes. good luck

Flaw on LCD monitor


This is normal. It may be distracting, but what it is is light. If you notice, it happens when there are bright spots, lights, reflections. These distortions will show up in video so try to avoid aiming at bright things while in video mode. Another type of flicker will happen mostly in florescent light.

Before CCD image sensors, video camera used tubes and aiming them at the sun or bright objects would burn the tubes permanently so cameras have come a long way, but by the nature of cameras being devices that record light, it is hard to eliminate that effect altogether (similar to red eye...just can't be a perfect science due to human nature of having blood vessels in the back of their eyes that when bright light is shined into them, their pupils open and the red color is reflected and shows up as red eye...this is best fixed in a photo editing program. It is hard to totally prevent, but changing angles and not shooting directly head on at subject helps). But I digress...

If it is really distracting for you, here is the one thing I found helpful; recompose the shot slightly by moving yourself, the camera, the angle (doesn't have to be dramatically different, but try to have the sun or light source behind the camera). As you move around, continue to push the shutter halfway down (each time not continuously) to bring subject into focus (getting your green box or boxes that indicate proper focus). Sometimes the lines will disappear if you change your shot even very slightly.

Hope this Helps!

Underexposed, grainy images with a light stripe running down the center


Sounds like your shutter curtain is malfunctioning. Did you bump the curtain when u loaded film & bed it... Take a close look to see if it is binding. This is a very fragile area to monkey with & should be done by a qualified repairman

Image adjustment functions


SHARPNESS - The function is to adjust sharpness of capturing images. CONTRAST - The function is to adjust contrast (distinction between light and dark) of capturing images. SATURATION - The function is to set color depth of capturing images. GRADATION - In this function, you can select the brightness of an entire image. It is suitable when you want to add a brighter effect to a bright object (Hi Key) and a darker effect to a dark object (Low Key).
