Question about Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The image I get is not clear

The image is not clear even before shooting. Colours ar not eight; the forms are not right; everything is confused not focused and far from the reality. I don't think it is a LCD problem, because the bird, when I connect, is clear and right. If I don't use the LCD monitor for looking, but the lens, it is OK; but the picture is allways unfocused, with strange colours and forms. I saw already the lens, but it semms to me clean.

My sharp ar-5316e error code CH please help me


Hope you are fine, ch are in two forms steady one and the blinking ch.
Steady CH
This is associated with door switch for either front cover or side cover. Check that the front cover of the copier and the right side is well closed.
Blinking CH
This is associated with the toner cartridge or the developer unit not being sensed by the machine. Make sure that the developer unit is well locked in the machine. Pull out the toner cartridge and insert back with some force into the machine, it should clear this sign. If it does not, replace a new cartridge Sharp Ar016ft and you are done. Good luck.

I Have Sharp Photo Copier AR 5316 when i given Print command the image was good but background double image was also come pls sir give some urgent tips sir


Needs a fuser hot roll. Once the get worn, they pick up some of the image and reprint it on the page.
They are available form several sources, Kaytin comes to mind. Precision roller. Google the printer model number . I would google is like this. Sharp AR 5316 hot roll.
That should give you several sources, Honestly I would replace the press roll also. Probably you should be able to find them both for less than 100 dollars, I sure wouldnt pay more. Look around. You can find them for a decent price. You may even want to look on E-bay. they often have them there.

Camera will not show image when shooting on lcd, why?


press the "disp" button in your camera twice or thrice.
even if the display is not coming means check if the lens cover is opening in front of camera.
if its open and display s not getting displayed means try to reset the camera.
Have you tried a hard reset on their camera by removing the main power batteries for 60 seconds and the reinserting them as if it were the first time power up. This may not fix your particular problem, but when the processor that runs all of the electronic features of the camera gets confused, this is the best way to clear its confusion.
even if problem is not cleared take it to service centre.
