Question about Samsung Digimax A402 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blurry photos I get one crisp clear photo out of about 15. I don't know the reason. I have sent it in twice and they repair it (ya right) and I get the same thing. The only thing I can figure out is that on the lense ring if I make sure it is pointed toward the pine trees (lanscape I assume) that it will take a decent photo. They have changed the lense supposedly on the second time I sent it in. I have an extended warrantee on it yet.. I went into settings and took it off of auto and put it on landscape. It seems to help but have not taken that many yet. My mother's 80th birthday was Saturday and I took 45 photos and got maybe three that were decent!I keep sending it in but nothing happens.

    I have the same problem and I have tried a few different things. It used to only give me blurry pictures when my batteries were low, but then I put in new batteries and after a while that didn't help either. I have tried cleaning the lens with a soft cotton cloth which is what is recommended and that didn't help it either.

I have had the same problem and tried messing with the settings and found that if I used these two buttons ( IOI ) & the right click button, next to the menu button (it has a circle with a line and a dot in it) that my pictures seem to look better. But, I am not an expert, so I have to try different things for each picture ( I never had a manual), and am not sure what these buttons are for but them seem to help with the blurry pictures I was getting. I hope this helps. Konna

When I take photos ,stripes appear on the screen and comes on the photos when printed.This don't happen on video.

Try resetting the camera by removing thebattery for 15 mins. Then install the fully charged battery in the camera andgo to the menu and set the Date and Time.If this does not work then this camera needs to be sent away forrepairs. Just like a motor vehicle, some repairs to your camera require atechnical specialist to fix your problem.

Unwanted familyy photo on 'Sent' e-mails

You may have a photo associated with you in your address book.
Open the application called "Address Book". If it's not on your Dock (the strip at the bottom of the screen), click the magnifying glass in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Type in Address. The top hit should be the Address Book app. Press the RETURN key.

  • Now, find your name. It may be the only one.
  • Click your name.
  • Click the EDIT button at the bottom of the Address Book window.
  • Double-click the picture, if there is one. (Double-click means click twice rapidly without moving the pointer.)
  • A little window should pop up allowing you to choose a different picture.
If you have trouble, please let us know.

Fog on right side of photos

Assuming the film door opens from the right, then the most likely reason is the light seal on the door. If it's just got dirty, brush it clean with a stiff brush. If it's badly worn then a camera repair shop may replace it for a reasonable fee - although I have done DIY repairs on this sort of thing using velvet :). Not for the faint-hearted tho'.

BTW the reason it's random is probably that it depends on how long each shot was in the gate before winding on and the ambient light conditions.

Your camera likely needs a new CCD imaging sensor. It is a cute little thing and is very expensive to replace. I've seen deals to repair any digital camera on eBay and I would check for a local repair person in your area. You can use the search on this site to see who might be close by. I have an A310 doing the same thing.

Fuji FinePix S602 Zoom - Black strip down picture

If you see the black line on your images and it is a very crisp clear line then it is an issue with the cameras image sensor. If the line is less crisp and clear then it may be a more simple of contamination in/on the lens. If the line is crisp and clear and the camera is under warranty get it fixed or replaced. If it is out of warranty look into getting the CCD component replaced at a repair facility. There is an outside chance that it is just the connector which bridges the sensor to the processing board - but that usually manifests all over the image, not just in 1 strip.
