Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera

Pictures overexposed in daylight, visible lines in photos

I'm getting these kind of washed-out shots with visible horizontal lines in my outdoor shots.  Movies and indoor photos don't seem to be affected.  Camera worked fine for a couple of months, then stopped.  Was not dropped or otherwise mistreated.
Ideas?  Any help would be great...hate to a buy a new one, and Panasonic servicing would equal the cost of the camera!

Same problems with my Sony Cybershot DSC-HX5. Has worked fine for months then started shooting totally white outdoor photos but still shoots available light indoors just fine. Video works fine also. Saw on another site where it's likely to be a sensor problem which means this camera will have to be used for video only or thrown away and replaced by a Canon (probably the best option)

Camera makes overexposed pictures wiht lines can this be a software problem ?

Nope, this is a hardware problem and the camera needs to be worked on. Notice how your display works fine but the finished product exhibits the anomaly. The recording end is messed up.

CASIO EXILIM digital camera photo resolution

The Digimax A7 Doesn't work outdoors, because on top of the camera, try taking a picture, but hold your hand on the top of your camera (Cover it) it's light sensitive. On top their is a built in sensor, the Darker it is the darker the picture is, the lighter, the lighter. If you cover it, (Usually on top) It should work fine outdoor, just don' t cover it indoor. Hope this helped. -CA

MY camera seems to be overexposing all pictures taken , so that I can not take outdoor photos at all and can only take photos inside if I close the drapes and block all natural daylight. It seems as if...

Hello, the problem that you explain could easily be caused by an improper "ISO" setting. When you go to your camera's menu, look for the ISO setting and put it back on "auto". It's probably on 800 or higher now, which will cause everything to be overexposed.

No photo in daylight in outdoor

You'll need to first check what setting you have the camera on. Sometimes, this can make all the difference. Change the setting to auto. Or, if you are familiar with manual settings, change the camera mode to manual...then change the ISO

Canon SD400: horizontal lines and daylight images are overexposed (see photo)

In both the situations the problem is with the apperture control mechanism of the camera. 1). sometimes the flexible ribbion cable carrying signal to the lense assembly get worn out, replacing the same will resolve the problem. 2) in some cases the leaf blades of the apperture gets sticky, cleaning of the same solves the problem. 3). If you happen to drop the camera then the alignment of the motor moving the blades get disturbed.

In all the cases only a good repair man can fix the problem .

Camera overexposes on daylight and recorded images have hoizontal striping

I would take it off of automatic mode and adjust it manually.

The Samsung camera I have doesn't work very well in automatic mode under indoor conditions. It will work in automatic under outdoor conditions.

Hope that helps.

Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics

It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.
