Question about Sony Cybershot DSC-T200 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photo with split screen

Occasionally the photo taken shows the top half of the screen darker than the bottom as if they were two separate photos taken of the same thing and put together. Is that a camera problem or a setting problem?

    Hey I have the same problem here. The picture would be divided into multiple sections with different shades of color with a slight shift in between the section of the images.

    I originally though this was due to a bad memory card (2gb high speed pro duo) so I sent it back and got a new one. I thought I fixed it but after 2 weeks of using the camera the problem came back. Now it would also have pictures that I have reformatted a long time ago appearing in portions of the new picture. This problem gets worse every time I access it to view the picture in the camera. Out of 100 pictures, 1/2 is good, 1/4 is file error and 1/4 is pictures is broken into segments and sometime mix with old pictures.

    This is really irritating because this is my first Sony camera and its very problematic. I own a Canon SD20 before this and the camera was flawless in terms of capturing and saving images.

    My theory is that either the camera logic board is bad or I have another bad memory card. Something is off when the electronics are trying to keep a reference point between each picture's set binary bits. So the more we access the camera in the view mode the worse the picture will get.

    I'm gonna call Sony Corp pretty soon here to see what they have to say.

    I have exactly the same problem. A growing number of my pictures (now about 1 in 5) have this sort of split screen, which is in different colours. Seems like one half of hte screen is scanned and exposed slightly differently to to the other half. My screen splits horizontally. Anyone who knows how to fix?

Does anyone know how to disassemble HP Photosmart A516 Compact Photo Printer?

Using fine slot screwdriver gently pry off button bezel (where it says "HP Photosmart A516) clicking 4 tabs (2 top, 2 bottom). Next take out 2 T10 screws beside buttons and pry off grey wrap around bezel. Next, take out 4 T10 screws (2 on back, 2 on side). Now you can separate the top half from the bottom half.

New photo files write over existing files.

How large is your memory card? If you're shooting at the full 9mp and highest quality, that takes up a lot of room on a small card.

Print test shows yellow block top half as a light color yellow and the bottom half as a normal darker yellow. tried cleaning a few times and no help.

There could be some paper scraps on the bottom of the printhead, take it out and blot gently on a damp paper towel, if it doesn't help, you'll need a new printhead.

Top half of screen is darker than bottom half

The problem is most likley the TV backlight - it is very unlikley to be the graphics card or video input or any other circuitry within the TV.
Also, the problem can be manifested by flashing or flickering of one or both halves of the screen, and sometimes it is a left/right split rather than a top/bottom split, depending on where the lights are positioned. Before failure, you sometimes hear a very high frequency buzz for a few weeks before it fails - the frequency can't be heard by most adults as it ranges from 15kHz-25kHz, but children\animals can usually hear it.
Generally you will need to replace the backlight tube or the invertor that drives it. Generally you can identify the backlights as thin glass tubes buried deep within the panel itself usually with one wire going to each end of them - they are very fragile. The invertor is connected to the backlight tube and looks like a circuit board, often containing a high voltage warning. Usually there are two or four conductors connecting the invertor to the tubes, which can be identified as thicker individual wires as opposed to the flat ribbon wire used for data for the actual image displayed on the screen.
On some screens you may be able to unplug\swap one or both tubes to identify if it's the tube or inverter.

Shadowy line across lower half of photo

This may be a censor dust issue. Get it checked through Canon service at the earliest.
