If you are able to take photos then I suggest you make a few to figure out if they are also dark like the viewer edge. If they are OK, enjoy the camera while it lasts and perhaps you can adapt to not having a clear view to the edge. I recommend against spending the money to repair this camera as it will likely exceed the cost of replacing the camera.

I have a haze effect on only one side of my picture


If a haze is on the lower part of the screen, and picture, that means something is wrong on the upper side of the sensor. It is almost impossible it has to do with the lens. Although you can look if the front of the lens is clean. Only clean a lens with a lens pen and not with any fluid or paper towel.
I just wonder if the camera was in a moist environment for a longer time. This could be the reason a part of the sensor has changed. Something like mould can have grown on the sensor. If that is true, I don't thick it is worth bringing it is for a repair.

Hello, I have 2 problems with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS4 Digital Camera. Firstly, at the lower left corner of my screen, there is a dark shade. So in all my pics, there is sth black on the lower left...


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

If the picture is taken vertically in EOS 400D SLR, there will be a black shade appearing in right side of the image. This issue was not there earlier. In recent times it started happening. It works fine...


I would be interested in seeing the dark image... check that its not the camera strap or some other part of your own pereson. Hold the camera UNDER the lens and take a vertical, noting where the camera strap is at the time. Perhaps put an example on one of the free photo sites and send us the link.
There is nothing inside a camera that should move and put a dark image on any pic.

Error


This is an error that plagues many different brands and models of camera. It's often the result of the camera being dropped, or of it getting dirty inside the lens housing. Basically, the electronics inside the camera are detecting a sticking point between the lens and the body and shutting down to avoid further damage.you can try the following:
  • Make sure the lens isn't visibly sticking anywhere. Look around the edges of the lens and see if it's making contact with the body. If it is, try to gently center it and then attempt to turn the camera on.
  • . Try using compressed air (not too high pressure, obviously) to blow around the edge of the lens.
  • Last of all, I have read several stories about people gently "banging" on the bottom of the camera just below the lens. I guess it couldn't hurt .Well... I guess if there are no other choices,,,alrighty then!

Subject is dark when looking through the viewfinder


Take the lens off and look at the lens opening on the body - at the 9 o'clock position is the aperture stopdown lever. It should be square to the edge - not bent sideways or too far from the side. It's a pretty flimsy lever and easily bent. You can bend it back square by grabbing with pliers and pushing toward the left side. Common problem.

The camera is developing dark areas around the edge of the pictures on 2 different sides. you can see these dark spots on the viewfinder and on the pictures. what is causing this?


If your lens is clean.

The dark spots maybe your image pickup sensor going out. Try going into the menu to tools select pixel mapping see if that helps it will look at all your pixels and determine if they are bad & try to compensate.

Hope it helps. Good Luck! please let me Know if this works or if you need more help.

Uneven flash


Look carefully at your images taken with flash... on the horizontal image is the lower part of the image slighty darker and have a rounded fall off at the edges? Is the vertical image dark side a straight hard line or is there a rounding to the top and bottom?

What we are looking at is if you have a very wide angle lens with the lens shade attached to the lens, then the built-in flash catches part of the lens shade and make a shadow on your subject... take the lens shade off and try the same shot and see if that makes a difference...

Have a great day...

Image reduced by dark edges


An adapter tube has to flare out at the end or it will cut the corners off at the wide angle setting. Telephoto should be ok though.

Lens error


Does it stay when you turn it off and back on again? These cameras have a function that shuts the camera down when there's a mechanical obstruction to the lens extension, It shuts it down to prevent more serious damage to the mechanism. Problem is, sometimes when triggered it doesn't return to normal. Try resetting it, either by the regular procedure, or by taking out the batteries for a few minutes. keep in mind that the lens barrel of this Casio unit is almost all the way to the left edge of the camera. Inevitably, when you hold the camera with two hands, one of the fingers of the left hand will overlap onto the front left edge of the unit, which, in fact, puts a portion of the finger on top of the edge of the extending lens barrel, either slowing its extension outward or aborting the extension process altogether. Even when you instantly jerk your finger away instinctively when the barrel rides the edge of your finger, you still have affected or interrupted the barrel extension process. In my opinion, a design flaw, but who am I to say? Good luck ;]
