Re: Nikon D1 - thin green line across image

There's a few things you can try to narrow down where the problem might lie. One thing you don't mention is if the green line is on the actual image, or only shows up on the LCD monitor.

If the line is in the actual image after transferring it to your computer, try formatting the memory card in the camera, or try a different card to see if the problem persists. If it only shows on the LCD, count yourself lucky because you can continue to use your camera, albeit with an annoyance to deal with.

However, it sounds to me as though you've got either a dead or hot pixel on the CCD which will cause problems in the adjacent pixels creating a "line". Take a look at this page and this page. Unfortunately, you will most likely need to send it in to Nikon for repairs.

I have recently noticed a very thin vertical line (primarily red) in the photos taken with my D70. Can you tell me the cause and the cure?

Cause - faulty CCD imager.
Cure - imager replacement.
It can be done only by Nikon authorized service center and if you're out of warranty - it will be expensive.

Sorry for the bad news.

Horizontal lines on image

This is not a solution , but only a work around. If you do at least 1/3 zoom on your lens before clicking a photo, these lines will not appear. But this not not a convenient way I agree.
Also this surely means that the CCD is not the problem otherwise it would have never worked ( electronic parts cant simply dont start to work when you zoom ringht ? ). Surely Nikon is fixing the issue, but cheating the customers by charging for a part is not defective in the first place

Unable to record images

This appears to be a processor problem There is I am afraid no user remedy. Depending on the age of the camera, it is possible that it has been subject to a recall because of defective CCD's- Now get onto Nikon customer support and they will advise you accordingly. They may price a repair - which will be truly astronomical if they do ,so be ready for it.

CoolPix 5700's have a common image sensor failure. Check with Nikon for recalls, this may be the cause of your issue. Alternatively the shutter may be stuck open, causing too much light to reach the sensor and causing over exposure as well as lines across the image. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Wierd pictures

This is caused by a shutter that is stuck open. Normally the shutter closes right at the moment that you snap the picture and allows the image sensor to record what it saw at that moment. When the shutter does not close as intended the image sensor cannot properly record the image. This is why here are the lines across your images. The shutter can stick either due to an impact knocking the delicate blades off their tracks, or due to dust or moisture contamination sticking them open or closed. If gently tapping does not free them; the camera will require professional repair. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
