How to solve the problem error A100 on km 1510


Exposure lamp problem
• Check the CCD input value for the lighting status of the exposure lamp 100 ms after the exposure lamp is lit and the carriage is moved to the shading position. If the exposure lamp does not light, turn off the lamp. After 500 ms, light the lamp again and, a further 500 ms later, check the CCD input. The exposure lamp does not light after 5 retries

causes
Poor contact of the connector terminals. Defective exposure lamp. Defective main PCB or inverter PCB. Incorrect shading position. CCD PCB output problem.

White horizontal streaks


This sounds like some kind of lens flair. Make sure there are no bright light sources at about 45 degrees to the lens and it should correct this problem. If it is not that then there may be a problem with the CCD, the part that receives the exposure. Without knowing if this is a point and shoot or digital SLR this is the best answer I can give.

Green & Purple blurry images


In all these cases it appears the CCD (image recording circuit) has absorbed tiny amounts of moisture. These circuits are known to have been manufactured improperly. The only solution is replacement of major circuitry.
