Question about Canon Rebel XS / Eos 1000D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f& EF 75-300mm f Lens

Horizontal line (similar to scan line) in all photos

The other day I took out my camera (it had been properly stored in a camera bag with the lens cap on and everything secured) and started taking pictures, but I noticed that going through every single picture, about 2/3 of the way down, was a completely straight, horizontal line that abruptly stopped 1/3 of the way in. At first I believed it to be a scratch on the lens, however it still appeared when I put on my telephoto lens. I fear it may have something to do with the sensor itself, however the fact that it is a clearly visible, completely straight horizontal line makes me believe otherwise. I'm extremely meticulous about switching lenses, making sure to do it quickly and efficiently.
I also took out my memory card to see if that had anything to do with it, but the pictures STILL included the line in them. This is really worrying me, and I have no clue as to how it could have happened.

While by no means is this a good picture, the line showed up most prominently in it. It's not noticeable when in a very bright setting, but extremely prevalent on dark surfaces.
Any help would be extremely appreciated!

You need to e-mail a tech at the support section of the Canon website. This is a problem that many have experienced and they may have a fix for it.

You have to know the MODE your camera is in. If you have it in the wrong mode you may not be able to take a photo in some conditions. You typically cannot take a photo of the moon on any auto setting the moon will be a white blob. The moon almost has to be taken manually.

I just replaced my Sony W50 Camera lens (and CCD) but destortion


I think there is problem in the shutter. Check if it works properly, by shooting without CCD and peeking through the lens. Anyway the problem is in the lens, so you should claim to the seller on eBay.

Horizontal Lines through the photo


Horizontal may not be due to the CCD sensor. It can be due to the lens itself. I swap lens from a non-working camera to replace the one with horizontal lines. I found out that I was able to get the camera to work to take great pictures.

Photos taken on zoom have white horizontal lines across them. Photos taken at normal zoom are OK.


Hi!
It sounds like that the shutter cable inside lens is partially broken. It moves with the lens while it zooms, so it could loose contact while stretched - when you have zoomed the lens. Z750 and Z850 have this problem with shutter cable - it breaks. The white horizontal lines are because shutter doesn't work. I'm afraid the cable will brake soon and pictures will be too bright with white horizontal lines even at normal zoom. It is considered a hard repair - the shutter part or whole lens unit has to be changed. You can contact your local Casio service center and ask the price, but it will probably be very high. I work in a Casio service center and new lens for this camera costs about 250$. It's not a good idea to put on used lens or shutter, as it will brake again sometime - it's just a matter of time. I suggest you get another camera.

Hope this helps!

Sony Cybershot DSC-S500 bad photo resolution problem


Electronic shutter in lens mechanism got bad and you need to replace complete lens assembly of DSC-S500 camera.
Of course new lens assembly would cost more then camera worth so best option is to buy new camera.

Clean dust inside the lenz


Don't. Unless there are some really big specks of dirt inside the lens then they will have no effect at all on picture taking. To prevent the problem getting worse always store your lens with it's front and rear caps on and inside a lens bag. Also make sure that your camera bag is clean and isn't shedding fibres from the inner linings.

Dismantling your lens to clean it is really a job best left to a professional who will then additionally check and clean/lubricate the moving parts inside the lens.

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.
