After taking a photo the screen shows the photo with fine white lines going across the screen and it almost whites out. We were wondering if the cost is higher than a new camera

Cost of a lcd panel for a digital camera runs aroudn 60-100+ dollars without labor. I'd buy a new camera, if it isnt a few years old.

My canon PowerShot S 410 has a pinkish blurry lines across the screen and that is what the picture turnes out to be. I use differant memory cards it makes no differance. The battries are the same age as...

The imaging sensor (CCD chip) has degraded due to age and failed. This is a common fault on digital cameras over six years old.

Replacing the chip is the only fix, but it's not cost effective on a camera as old as yours as it's job for professionals only.

I have a black line showing up on my faxed documents. I have opened it up, changed the film and re- set it, but the problem persists. The machine is about 5 years old.

Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page.

If this is your problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

Why is my Dell Latitude D620 laptop screen turning white?

You'll have to live with it. It's taken damage, it's not repairable, it's only replaceable. My Latitude screen was replaced after only 2 1/2 years.

Vertical lines across my entire screen

My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
