Question about Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Red line I have an Evolt E-500 and am very happy with it. However, I have found a very thin single red horizontal line appears on prints when they are enlarged. I think I have narrowed it down to indoor flash photos. Any idea what might be causing this or what the remedy might be?

    I wish it was only one horizontal red line. My E-500 worked very well for the first few months, then a random array of 5-50 horizontal lines (mostly red and blue) appeared on all pictures in RAW format (not in jpegs). This happens whether I view the pictures on the Olympus image-editing software Aperture, so it's not a software problem on my computer. I did some research online, found a blog where it was claimed the problem was with the colour filter for the CCD, returned the product to the store where I bought it and they returned it to Olympus. One month later the store called me to say Olympus had repaired the camera. I took pictures with the "repaired" camera and nothing had changed. The problem persists. I concluded one of the following: (1) nothing was done by Olympus (this would be unconscionable); (2) a repair might have been performed, but it was not tested (almost as bad). Either way, I'm very upset. It's hard to determine how many others have been plagued with this problem.

I think the problem is in matrix. Try pixel remaping. Usualy you need make remaping every 1 year. At the botom menu goto "Pixel Remaping" and press.

Have you tried to pixel map the camera, It is a menu setting option probably in the wrench 2 tab of the camera menu. This will try to fix any information with the CCD chip inside the camera that controls image processing. If you run this function and it still shows the red line then it may be that you need to send the camera in for repair to have that CCD chip replaced.

A horizontal or vertical red line appears on picture.


Red lines are caused by glare. Avoid photographing shiny surfaces that reflect excessive amounts of light into your lens.
