It's scratch along the film and will have been caused by either faulty film (very unlikely but not impossible), or it has been scratched when running through the camera or processing machinery (sadly both very common).

Open the back of your camera and lay a section of scratched negative over the back, emulsion side down, just as it would have been when taking photos. Use the scratch to guide you to find any rough/sharp points especially across the masking frame (the 36mm x 24mm rectangular hole in the camera which determines the size of the image). If you find none, then take your negative along and ask ask at the photo lab you use whether they have had any problems. They'll almost certainly say "no" but will then quietly check and rectify their machinery if they find dirt or debris stuck in there. Frequently the fault is in their sleeving machine which cuts up the negatives into shorter lengths.

Unfortunately, it's a problem which is far more common these days. Most 35mm film cameras are old and poorly maintained, or are just overpriced and badly made plastic toy cameras like the entire Lomo range. In addition, many people get their films processed at local minilabs and as they're used less frequently now the standards of operation and maintenance have generally fallen. I find that if I use a postal processing service the large commercial labs have better maintained machinery. The downside is that the local minilab will often give a more personal service with respect to getting an accurately exposed print and the large commercial lab will not unless you pay for a premium service.

Hi, It's likely caused by issues with the sensor that's within the camera. Are they consistent white lines and are they there in all modes?

The picture looks bent and looks 3d...my friend who sold me the tv had the same problem and she was able to fix it but she cant figure out how to do it now ... somthing about the red and blue being off...


In the tv menu settings there should be a convergence menu or alignment menu...you need to go here to re-align the red and the blue guns to display the proper picture...most projection tv's have a setup screen for aligning the colors..you want to line up the red and the blue to get as close to white as you can

Theres a line threw my tv.


It has a problem in the vertical sweep circuit that puts a nonlinearity in its output and you see the glitch in the normally gradual sweep as a line. Since a hit upside the set seems to help, you should just resolder the whole vertical circuit area (doesn't take long) and see if that cures it. If not, start replacing the electrolytic capacitors in that area.
Hope Ya Fix It!
