    Problem is EXACTLY as gippper describes. Some photos are perfect but others have pale horizontal lines as if looking through a window blind. Which photos are OK or not seems to be entirely random. I've also tried it with various SD cards and even when the SD card is removed, to eliminate this from the problem. My only hope seems to be an expensive repair or to dump it? - Unless someone know different....

I am also having the same problem
It started with intermitent problem, like first picture is over exposed, but subsequent one are ok.
But now, under day light the pictues all shows horizontal lines
Went to samsung service center and they says it may be due to the " barrel " that is not working, which does not adjust the light exposure accordingly.
Repair cost is more that the worth
anyone knows how to change the " barrel " ?
Please email em at aven.yeo@ppg.com
thanks

Just to be sure,its the wide gold colored ribbon cable,as seen in the pictures.

Posted on May 11, 2008

Hello.I recently purchased a Samsung i6 Camera that had vertical lines and a blurry picture.I bought it cheap because of this off of Ebay.It was an easy fix.
When I removed the front cover,there was a flat ribbon cable with a black connector at the bottom,towards the middle at the bottom of the camera.This connector holds the ribbon cable TIGHT,so as to keep a strong connection/contact.Well,there is a black piece that snaps open and closed.OPEN for removing the cable,CLOSED for keeping the cable TIGHT.This connector had obviously came loose and was OPEN,thus the LCD was'nt getting the proper signals to function the LCD.I simply snapped the black piece back down into place,powered it on, and VOILA! the screen worked perfectly!I put a small piece of tape over the connector so it would'nt come un-connected again.Its worked fine,this was the solution.I've included a couple pics to show you the connector that comes loose.
Now,its TRICKY finding all the screws that disasemble this camera.2 are hidden under the pop-off piece that says MEGA 6.0, and 2 more are under a small black plastic cover on the other side.
And you should be sure to write down on paper where what SCREW goes where,as they are different sizes and MUST be put back in the proper place.If you need any help with finding where some of these screws are located,e-mail me at wolf9610@aol.com.
I'll help you with the disassembly the best I can.This worked for me and may or may not work for you.I buy,repair,and resell digital cameras as a hobby on Ebay and I'm willing to help out where I can on the simpler repairs on digital cameras.

SAMSUNG S1070 - When I take pictures, white lines appear on them. They don't appear on the screen when I am not taking a picture, and they do appear when I transfer them to my computer. I have tried...


How do outdoor pictures look when taken with the camera? If overexposed, first check that your camera is in automatic mode, and not some other manual exposure mode of the camera. Next, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

There are lots of white lines on my photos. It doesn't seem to matter what the setting is, flash or not, and I've replaced the batteries which are new. The lines go accross each picture like a venitian...


Then unfortunately this is a problem with the image sensor on the camera. It would cost more to fix than to just purchase a new one. If you do go for a new one please recycle the old one at a location that takes e-waste. Sorry for the bad news.
Take Care,

If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

Can't repair by yourself.
It's need repair camera machine shutter.

Photos have horizontal lines


Ok, first of all......when you transfer the pictures to a computer are the blue lines still in the picture? Also if you reset the camera does the image still come out white?

A lot of times what happens is that there is nothing wrong with the actual picture it is the lcd. When you transfer the picture it looks ok you are only seeing the blue lines on the lcd. That means that the lcd is going out. If you transfer the picture and the blue lines are still in the picture after transfer then we can try to reset the camera as there is something else going on besides the lcd. More that likely it is just an lcd that needs to be replaced.

With a white image that usually means that the white balance is off on the camera. I would recommend resetting the camera and then try retaking some pictures to see if they are still coming out white. If they are then you would have to send the camera in to be repaired.

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?
