Samsung nv10 - bad image unusable

When using the nv10 in the dayligh the images are messed up. If I go in a dark place and use the flash, everything is ok. But in the dayligh the images have lines all over and are too bright. You cannot see what is the picture about. Tried everything. All options, rest.. nothing works.

    I have the same problem - when I use it in daylight either the image came out white, or barely visible with lines running through it. In darker areas using the flash the picture came out better but still with the lines. Now though, when not using the flash the image comes out looking like it's had some sort of bad photoshop filter applied to it - noisy, double image, almost like a cheap 3D effect!
    For some reason I think it's the battery but not sure. I'm going to try to run the battery down and give it a full charge. If you've found a solution though, email me and let me know

    i have the same problem when the pictures indoors/dark places come out almost inverted in colour and in bright places or with flash it gets REALLY bright (ie.almost white picture) and with lines as well. i tried playing around with the auto, scene, manual and program settings and i even tried resetting the whole camera via the settings menu.

    please help if you know how to reset the camera another way or how to fix this! thank you!

I phone up customer services and they said that the problem is likely to be mechanical, therefore, the best thing to do is to send it in to them to the address on the back of the instruction manual with a covering letter explaining your problem. You have to include a proof of purchase (such as a receipt/bank statement/confirmation email) and don't include any accessories when you send it (eg. cases, memory cards) by recorded mail.
Hope this helps, missjessd

Make sure u are using the auto setting. the nv10 has a very powerful manual setting that if you are interested in maximizing your creative photography and having alot more control on how the pictures come out i would recomend picing up a book at your local book store. i learned Alot from a book my friend let me barrow called K.I.S.S. Guide to Photography by John Garrett a book like that will explain to you why there is soo much light in your picture and how to correct the problem. i have an nv10 try this. when u are on auto on the top right of the screen there will be two things u can chenge dark to bright and warm to cool. also make sure you dont have the macro set to on. i hope i helped

How do I fix a Samsung tv model htp5054x/xaa? I have power and I can hear audio but no image.

First trouble shooting steps is to try a different source, or at least a different cable. A bad HDMI cable can allow sound but not image. Also look closely at the screen. If you can see a dark image, it would indicate that the lighting system has failed. Check this video for some tips. Samsung Plasma TV Repair How to Repair and Replace Main Board

6 Ways To Fix Too Bright and Too Dark Photos

Recompose The Photo This is probably the simplest solution. When taking a photo of a scene with very bright and very dark parts, move your camera to eliminate one of the extremes. In the case of the band, I would have either closed the curtains for the shot, or recomposed completely and photographed from the window looking at the band, and the crowd behind.
Use Exposure Lock If you can't recompose the photograph, instead tell the camera what part of the image you would like to see. The rest of the photo will be either over or under exposed (too bright or too dark) but at least you will see your subject. You can dothis by placing the center of the image at your subject; half depressing the shutter to lock the focus and exposure; move the camera to re-compose the image; and fully depressing the shutter.
In the band image, the camera chose to correctly expose the scene outside, but even if the band member had been correctly exposed, the window would have ended up being over exposed and you would just have seen white.
Some cameras have an option called 'spot metering' to set the part of the image you'd like to be correctly exposed. If your camera has this setting, enable it before using the technique above.
Use Fill In Flash If your scene has a sunny background, but your subject is in the shade (or has a hat on), turn on the flash (as I explained way back in tip number 9 - Using Flash During The Day). I know it seems wrong but it really does work! By using the flash, your subject will look as bright as the background. This would have worked well for the child shot above.
High Dynamic Range Imaging This technique is not for the faintof hearted. It requires a subject that does not move; a good camera with the capability to set the exposure and output RAW images. A tripod and image editing software like Photoshop CS3 are also needed.
High Dynamic Range Imaging (or HDR for short) is a technique for placing both very dark and very light areas in the same photo. It requires you to take a number of photographs of thesame scene - each with a different exposure. First take the shot using the camera's recommended settings. Then, in manual mode and keeping the aperture at the same value as the first shot, take a sequence of shots - each shot having a different shutter speed (above and below the original). You'll have 5-9 shots of the same scene all in different exposures.
Merging the three images to the left creates the HDR image below. Thanks to Photomatix for the images.
hdrmerged.jpgNow import these into your favorite paint program. I use Photoshop, but you can as easily use a cheaper program designed specifically for HDR photos like Photomatix. Follow the HDR directions and the paint program will merge these images into one great looking shot!
Use a Filter If your scene is of a brightsky and a dark ground (for instance at sunset, or on a cloudy day), you can use a graduated neutral density filter. This filter cuts out someof the light from one part of the photo (the sky). This will correctly expose the ground and the sky without needing to use HDR. These filterscan be complex to setup, so I don't usually recommend them for beginners.
Fix The Original Photo in an Image Editing Program twobright2.jpgFinally, if you can't take another shot at the same location, you can fix the original image by changing the levels using a paint program. This works best when your subject is darker than the rest of the photo (because cameras lose detail in over-bright areas). I've brightened the band member in the top image using this technique and while it looks okay in thissmall shot, this technique can tend to amplify any noise in the image. The darker the subject, the harder time you will have fixing the image.
I discuss exactly how to use this technique in lesson 2 of my free Image Editing Secrets course. I have a tutorial for Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro and the free Google Picassa.

Konika Minolta Copier prints half dark pages

If it is only causing an image problem when you copy and not when you print, then there is something wrong with the optics under the glass. Check and see if you have any mirrors out of place or if the scanner looks crooked. If you have the machine set up to scan try and scan to SMB or email to see if it still has the problem. If everything looks correct under the glass and scans to SMB and email look bad like the copies, you may have a bad CCD assembly, or a bad board.
