This is known problem of bad ccd imager chip in digital camera and CCD Image Sensor will be replaced to get correct live view image.


Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Distorted purple image when camera is switched on


That is weird, maybe try to reset it by taking the batteries out and then putting them back in and starting it from scratch. Electronic problems....yikes.

There is a seperate microphone to do that. Usually when the CCD imager is bad it cause a white screen to appear or the colors are distorted in the view finder.

I would take it into a camera shop and see what they say unless the battery hasn't been replaced recently.

Distorted image, lines, convergence?


If the pip is fine then the digital board is bad. Have it replaced by an authorized Samsung service center as the hex settings have to be copied from the dmd to the new digital board
