Question about Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera screen lined with white streaks and screen shakes.

When on, the screen on my camera is streaked with white lines and shakes. You can barely see the subject on your screen and sometimes nothing at all because the screen is so white. I do get the Error message on my screen sometimes. I love the camera and the pictures it takes. I just got it in December 2008 for Christmas. I do not have the receipt either, since I got it for a gift. Any adivce or my problems with my camera?

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.


Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you.


1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

Remember, TVs CONTAIN HIGH VOLTAGE AND CAN KILL YOU! Do this at your own risk.

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found online. I would definitely shop around though.


3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.


Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Nikon coolpix s710 pictures have a streak


I think your picture has a bright light source in the frame. In digital cameras this phenomenon is common that in some angle these streaks of lines are produced with very bright light sources. be careful not to include bright light source while taking pics. But if u have these streaks and line in all the frames, then better check your camera with the service centre.

Lines visible when camera turned on


hello,what particular lines are you referring to? are you sure you have not pointed camera at direct sun light and got stray light or bounced of highly reflective material that's caused your lens to create flare,or is it the viewfinder that's had streaks of light leak in?

How do I repair a streaky lcd screen?


It depends. are the streaks from the picture, or are they on on the inside or out side of the screen of the outer screen. if its out side use vinegar and newspaper, if its inside like *** smoke (brown stains in streaks) you might be able to take the front off if your lucky! and clean it. They make it hard so you can't do this so you have to buy a new one. They can make them to last a life time now, but how would they make a profit then. top tip buy with your credit card and do not buy extended warenty,(in shop) your card covers this and you can get it for 50% less on line after. pluss you have loads of time to take it back, refund garentied with the new laws. I think 14 days, not sure?

White horizontal streaks


This sounds like some kind of lens flair. Make sure there are no bright light sources at about 45 degrees to the lens and it should correct this problem. If it is not that then there may be a problem with the CCD, the part that receives the exposure. Without knowing if this is a point and shoot or digital SLR this is the best answer I can give.

Balck and white streaks on left side of paper


Usually if there are streaks you need to change the pcu that is the same color as the lines. If the streaks are gray it also could be the fuser, but i would think it is the pcu.
