    Are the pictures portrait aligned? Are you using a lens hood?
    If you're using the built in flash with a hood could be casting a shadow.

Typically this is a problem with flash photography.
are you using flash?

the speed of exposure, the time that the film is exposed is controlled by two curtains that cover the film and prevent light from striking it. One curtain is across the film at the start, and springs open, then the second which was open, springs shut.
for 'long' exposures the first one opens time passes and then the second closes, but to achieve very short times, the second curtain starts to close before the first one has fully cleared the opening. so the edge of the second curtain can be traveling fractions of a second behind the first.
the result is that NOT ALL OF YOUR FILM is exposed to light at the same instant. If you have a flash go off during a fast exposure, only that portion of film that is exposes when the flash fires will get the proper amount of light, the rest of the film being blocked by a curtain. Most cameras are wired to fire the flash as soon as the first curtain is fully open and before the second starts to close. If you have a faster speed set in your camera by mistake, the second curtain has already started to close when the flash goes off. The black area on the right side is that portion of film that was already covered by that second curtain when the flash fired.

if you have the camera set correctly (typically at 1/60th or 1/100th sec) then maybe you should take the camera to a local camera store, and have the curtains timed...

How do I set time and date


To set the clock, have good batteries in. Slide the selector to Setup (middle setting).
Push the large right button marked MENU.
Push one of the right side buttons, above the word SHOT, these are the right > and left < buttons. Push repeatedly until you see
Set Mode
Set Clock
Set where the last Set should be outlined in dark. Now push the OK button which is the large left button.
Choose the field to update with the right side buttons > or <, once you have the one to update, use the left side up and down buttons to change the value shown until it is correct. Choose the next field with the right side < or >, update the value with the left side buttons. Only when you are completed with updating all of the date and time values, do you hit OK to set them all.
After this all pictures will have the correct time available. Though you have to choose in one of the other menus whether to show the timestamp on the picture. The picture will have the date and time associated with the file when you take the card out to view it later.

With the list you have, I would think broken ground wire in the rubber boot from the A-pillar to the door on the driver's side.
I have seen this one a few times ( not chronic but happens ).

It is a black wire in the door to a-pillar harness. SWAG at why the window worked when open part way, the wire touched at that one time, and pulled back apart again.

Inside the battery compartment, right beside the AA batteries, there's a tiny little door labeled CR1220 (see this picture). Pry the door open with your fingernail, remove the little button battery located there, and take this battery down to your local drugstore to buy a replacement camera clock battery. Remember, it's a "CR1220" battery. It should cost only about $4.

I am getting deve home sensor error on my samsung CLX-3175-FN, how do i fix it or diagnose it?


Dev. Home error can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the power cord side of the printer. The solenoid acts as a clutch to stop the spinning developer actuator at the right spot.

The problem is that the spring gets weak over time / the cogs round out over time and the solenoid finger is overcome by the spinning cogs, and resulting in selecting the wrong developer.

Open up the right side (power cord side) of the printer (take off top cover, then take off side cover). Then, find a solenoid (little metal square) that touches the white plastic vertical spur gear. Take the spring off the solenoid. Now, put the spring back on - only this time you will attach one anchor point to the middle of the spring as to pre-stretch the spring for more tension.
