Hi!
The lens shutter cable is broken or the shutter blades are stuck - happens when lens get wet or something adhesive gets in the lens. It's a hardware problem so I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. I must warn you that it is considered a complicated repair, so it could be expensive.

Hope this helps!

Konica Minolta Dimage E50 suddenly over expose. Indoor at night, the picture looks almost normal. Daytime the wall will be too white. Outdoor the picture is white out.


Hi!
The shutter cable inside the lens has broken - a common problem with the E50. The cable moves as the lens zoom so it brakes at some point and then camera isn't able to control the shutter - control the amount of light taken. If you look closely at the over exposed pictures, you will notice horizontal lines accross them.
The shutter or whole lens unit has to be changed. It is quite expensive, I believe it's not worth it. You can contact Sony / Konica - Minolta service center.
I work in a Sony / Konica - Minolta service center and have repaired a lot of these.

Hope this helps!

Bit of a serious FixYa for ya! My Fujifilm e900 has picked up sand (& possibly a little water from damp towels) probs from trips to beach. Picture quality now affected for the first time ... loads of...


This is a common enough problem, and repairable if you have the patients and aptitude, with digital cameras.
You will probably find that video is un affected. This is the one clue as to your problem of white lines or over exposed pictures. The video function does not use the shutter.
I have pictures of how to clean the shutter on an E900 If you wish to try your self. My email is listed on my tips page of my profile under "THE ONLY WAY I KNOW HOW" but please remember it is not a quick or easy task to do.

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.

Horizontal LINES


If you are getting fine horizontal lines thet means the picture is over exposing. most probably the apparture or the shutter blade mechanism is not working fine. needs repairs.
