A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Lines across picture and extremely bright


It looks like the CCD has problem. but you can try to reconnect the CCD cable first. if it doesn't help, you need to replace the CCD or lens unit.

Fine interference lines running diagonally across picture.


Hi There,
Sounds like your Horizontal Output Circuit is leaking current causing diagonal lines across the screen. I hope this will help and thank you for using FixYa!

TV: bright line across black screen for several hours.


vertical output ic needs to be resoldered. careful leaving that bright line displayed on the screen as this will cause a permanent phosphor burn into the tube. this can not be corrected once burned unless you replace the tube. mch

Mitsubishi VS70707 Has developed subtle lines in picture


If they are faint white lines, they are called re-trace lines. They are caused when the current to the CRTs is too high. One way to check is to turn the brightness down. They should go away, but if the picture is too dark, you will need to turn down the "screen" control. This will take some handy work. If you are handy enough, take the grill off the front. Inside you will see a little black box, about 5 inches wide. there are 6 knobs on it, 2 for each color. One row is for focus (each) the other for screen (brightness). It is written on the part. The trick is to turn each of them down equally or risk having a slight tint of color. Really not hard at all, but requires the TV to be on to see. You shouldn't need to turn it but a fraction. Good luck.

Camera taking wierd pictures


look for the reset to factory settings for your casio. i could also be the settings have been changed so more light is coming in the camera which explains your bright pictures. but the lines across ALL the pictures warn something of a CCD/Cmos sensor problem.

Tv not working


this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

Weird picture in viewfinder


The discoloring problem is quite common, but its hard to tell from your post what?s the degree of the defect. Unfortunately the LCD screen washing out in bright sunlight is a problem on many digitals, and also streaking lines coming off bright areas. There are hoods that you can buy for the Nikons that will fix this problem. I don't have any links to them but they are not hard to find. If you think your problem is really too much to absorb, feel it can't possibly be anything normal, or have problems with the actual pictures as they transfer to a computer, I suggest you take it back to the store and say you're not satisfied with the product. Hope it turns out well.
