Re: Problem attaching a CCd camera to laptops

You can buy a converter to USB from electronics parts supply stores. The same stores also sell cheap webcams

Re: Problem attaching a CCd camera to laptops

Usually all cameras & peripherals connect to a laptop using USB or a Firewire port. Almost all new laptops carry USB ports, some have firewire too. Otherwise USB can be converted into firewire using a convertor. Just check the connectivity of your CCD camera and take a decision accordingly. Bye Vishal

The problem is a faulty CCD. Replacing the CCD yourself is possible but its really a difficult task. It is cheaper to simply buy another used z1275, because a CCD can cost about the same as a used camera. You can also buy parts-cameras but you don't know if the CCD is good or not. Ebay always has a good selection of cameras..

I have dust or lint on the inside of my Coolpix S710, resulting in spots on the images how do I clean this, alternatively is it possible to pull the camera apart


This is highly suggestive of faulty CCD sensor. Unfortunately, repair would be more expensive than buying a new camera.You could read more about CCD sensor from :-

CCD sensor is responsible for capturing the images to your camera.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

The camera just displays a number of horizontal gray or blinking lines. It appears the ccd is kaput. worth fixing or just buy a new camera?

Hi my canon A70 will not let me view my subject -- instead, I get a striated screen of purple and black that I can't change. What's up?

I had the same problem and found that on the Canon website there was a CCD Image Sensor Advisory for this product. When I called the service number (1-800-828-4040) they were very helpful. Canon will pay shipping for your camera and repair the CCD Image Sensor free. Good luck!

Your CCD sensor has failed. Common digital problem that uses Sony sourced CCD chips. Proffesional factory replacement of CCD is only fix or buy another physicaly damaged unit and swap CCD boards. Not hard but intricate and time consuming.

Fuji Finepix S5000 ccd sensor

Send it to the Fujifilm camera repair center. The S5000 has a known issue with bad CCD sensors... Unless you want to do it yourself.

A faint spot in all of my photos!!!

For me the issue was flecks of dust on the CCD. Complete fix for d40x effected as follows:

(You will need a 'rocketblower' or similar air cleaning device)

Take the lens off. Set camera to Manual setting and spin around to 'bulb' setting, press the button to shoot but hold it down. You will see the CCD exposed inside the hole where the lens usually attaches. Then taking care not to touch the CCD with the rocket blower give it a few blasts of air onto the ccd. (Possibly before you do this hold the camera at an angle to the light and you might see the dust flecks I had on the CCD.) Then replace let the button go and replace the lens. Voila.
