Question about Fuji FinePix E550 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Overexposure and vertical lines

My 2-3 year old E550 just started producing all overexposed shots, sometimes with vertical lines going through it. I've read that this is "common" but haven't heard about the fix for it. Perhaps I made a mistake on the settings recently. I heard about the spot meter vs. a broader setting, but don't know where to check that on settings.

Re: Overexposure and vertical lines

My E550 started producing over exposed frames (everythings white except maybe across top) with lines.This just happens outside.On inside the pictures are great.

Overexposure for pix seems okcamera 2 yrs old casio EX-S880

Check your "exposure compensation" setting. It should be at "0". You can set it lower if your pics are still overexposed and see if you can find a setting you like.

Gross overexposure of still photos.

I have the same problem starting a few weeks ago when taking pictures out in the cold (-8 Celsius). Viewing the pictures on the computer shows that only a third of the image is being read. The other two thirds are coming out pure white. So when zoomed out it looks overexposed, but it really is missing 2 out of 3 lines.
I haven't found any solutions on the internet. I reloaded firmware 1.02 and tried using the internal memory card to eliminate the removable memory card as a problem.
Any ideas? I love this camera and hate to throw it out.

Flashing problem with Olympus stylus500

It sounds like you have a short in your camera. Could be from a drop or just from age. You can either take it into a service center or might just be easier to replace it since camera prices aren't to bad. Hope this helps.

The pictures are often too dark but sometimes too light. I have now found a work-around for this problem. It consists of doing the following:

* set the sensitivity to ISO 100
* set the flash to "A"
* take a picture with the lens cap on
* remove the lense cap and take your pictures - they should come out fine

I don't know why this works but I think that when the TZ1 does not have enough information to compute a shot, it will rely on information from previous shots. Taking a picture with the lens cap on may reset the information in the camera so that it does not rely on previous shots. Setting the ISO to 100 will prevent the over exposed shots as the software may sometimes choose ISO 400

Fuji E550


No, Fuji did not give a discount on my replacement camera, but i believe i found it on sale somewhere for less than I paid for the same model the year before..looking at my Fuji Finepix A500 (#2) here at the desk as I'm typing this.. 2 years old and no problems... $149.00..........

I believe the problem with the first camera was due to an over exposure to sand and salt air during a two week vacation in Florida... The lines started the last night there.... its death was noted by the lens failing to retract fully when turned off... then no movement at all...... hope this helped..... buy one that takes decent pictures, inexpensive, keep it clean, and just replace it if it breaks!!!!!

Overexposed photos in otherwise normal settings in casio ex-s500

It is the shutter (or at least it was for me) I found a simple test here:
I repaired it myself, but it took me a whole afternoon and lots of patience.
The hard part is taking the camera apart, once I got to the shutter I just activated it manually so to dislodge any pieces that might have gotten jammed, then placed it back together again and it worked! :).
It's really hard to take apart, it's like a puzzle sometimes, to find which screws are keeping it together. I also had a bit of hard time when it came to put the zoom back together again.
But I guess it beats throwing the camera away.
I'm still puzzled on how the CCD works so that an overexposure would make horizontal overexposed lines, but everything points to that. Fixed shutter, lines be gone.
