Canon 80D operates as normal except all shots taken are white with a wide pink band running across the screen. Camera plays back old shots on card normally but all new shots are just pink and white.


Sounds like your imaging sensor has failed and is not recording blue or green tones. Take your camera to a good camera store or send it to Canon for a service estimate.

I have a kodak 4600 scanner that has an error " white patch not seen". i have tried to cleaning the imaging guides and calibration as wellthe scanner does not calibrate too please how can i resolve this.


Hello, I had a similar problem. The guides have a white stripe facing the camera (facing the inside of the scanner), the scanner uses this white stripe to define the image. If the guides are in place, and you turn the scanner off, you can see there is a black tape on one of the borders of the guide it is black on one side, and white on the other. You can take the guides off, and check if you can see the white stripe, sometimes this stripe has some scratches, or is not completely white. You can try placing a white piece of paper of the same size as the white stripe on top of the existing white stripe so that it serves the same purpose, if that does not work, you might need to take the black tape that has the white stripe on it, and try to replace it. The scanner needs that white stripe to be completely white. Hope it helps

Hallo, my canon powershot A420 camera shows horizontal white lines in LCD screen mostly in night shots and the day light shots appear blurred as if more light is entering and the image is not clear.


I am afraid this seems to be a hardware error in the sensor. If the image is purplish in color when blurred it is similar to my and another user's problem. He/she contacted the manufacturer and they said they can fix it for $250. I am not a repair specialist so there may be a simpler cause and solution- good luck.

Nikon d80 frame count


264 is the minimum number of shots you can fit onto the memory card. A shot with large areas of black or white uses less memory than a more complex image and so the camera recalculates the number of shots remaining and so the number appears to go back up to it's original value.

If you have the images in your computer them click on the 'Add image to your post' instruction and follow the prompts. But from what you tell me this appears to be a CCD problem and the camera should be returned to the vendor if under warranty or contact the Customer support at Nikon other wise. for the camera to be replaced
