Question about GE A730 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Horizontal lines/overexposure My GE A730 has been an excellent camera, but recently has an increasing problem with pictures showing horizontal lines, and now overexposure. I have had it for about 18 months, and up to now have had no problems with it, other than the fact that it doesn't like cheap batteries! Anyone got any input?

Your camera seems to be having a shutter problem. It could be some particles/dirt which might not be allowing the shutter blade move freely or it could be a broken flex problem. Either ways, a non technical person will not be able to do much and access the shutter. You need to seek a camera technician's help for cleaning otherwise replacement of the shutter unit.

Horizontal lines appear on screen when picture is taken on my GE A730 digital camera


Hi

Sounds like the aperture of your lens is stuck open and overexposing the images. Try taking a picture in very bright light like outdoors, is it completely washed out? Now take another picture indoors in much less light, is it NOT washed out but has the lines?

From our experience repairing cameras this is the lens aperture and the lens must be replaced.

Good luck

If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

Can't repair by yourself.

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: http://www.mydc.com.tw/repair/knowledge_en/casio-exilim-ex-s600-overexposure-t17.html
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.
