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.

First your white horizontal lines are due to you not printing in the best quality. Go into the printing preferences and change the quality to best/quality.

The dots printed vertically are possibly due to ink getting onto the star wheels on the doc exit rollers. Also its possible that the printing media is a bit on the thin side and may need to be supported when exiting the machine.

Those should solve your problem. A new printhead wont make any difference.

Good luck

Horizontal lines (red) on first 1 - 2 pages of initial print-out


Do you refill ink tank? Print blank pages. Is there horizontal lines appear? It might be caused bay ink leakage. Check respiratory hole at ink tank and rubber seal at bottom of ink tank. Print blank pages until no horizontal lines and try to use new ink tank.

This is for a different model, but I had thin horizontal lines in red and had to adjust the tube for red. You may have a similar adjustment on your set.

Thin red horizontal lines appear when viewing a dark background


Look around this sight the answer is explained here. you hace to take off the front speaker cover and a small panal undder it. you will find six knobs on a small panal. use these to adjust the settings fotr the power and they will remove the lines. You will need to have the tv on and I would sugest a normal size phillips head screwdriver not a power tool.
