Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photo resolution problem

Greetings,

When taking photos in any setting, the pictures appear with grey and white zebra stripes running side to side. Looks like an old time TV show, when the reception was poor.

When taking pictures in rapid burst mode (3 at a time), only the first image shows the lines. The second one is better and the third one is almost normal.

Wondered if this is a memory card or camera problem?

my address is:

helaman@juno.com, and thank you for the help.

V/R,
B.H.

    Dead on description of what's going on with my 717; driving me NUTS! Other than that, a heck of a camera, though dated and 'clunky' compared to newer equipment.

WhY photos canon A470? i have a canon powershot A470 camera and there's a problem taking photo.. whenever i take a picture, it's either fully white or have white stripes on the pictures.. i thought it


Perhaps you check the settings. If the camera is on nightshot, or manual, with a long shutter time or wilde open diafragma your pictures are all overblown, or stripes come from lights. Put the camera in automatic. The main dial on the green camera logo, and try again. If this does not work, Please let me know how the settings are on your camera. Success

Fuji finepix 5600 white stripes


When you say 'played back', do you mean viewed on the camera screen, or after downloading to your computer ? If the latter, it could be to do with the software you are using - try FastStone.

I take photos but display in the computer photo size is post card size, how to make little big picture


The size of a picture/photo depends on the resolution that you have set on the photo capturing source(webcam, Digicam etc). So you need to increase the resolution as much as possible to increase the size and quality on the photo. It will also increase the space required to store it.

Hope this will help.....cheers:)

White photos canon A470? i have a canon powershot A470 camera and there's a problem taking photo.. whenever i take a picture, it's either fully white or have white stripes on the pictures.. i thought it...


I had this problem too, I think it's the shutter problem, it doesn't close
when a picture is taken, therefore, causing the over exposed photo...I've sent it back to canon, still waiting for the reply...

New xD M+ card won't work in the digital photo frame.


Alot of the digital photo frames will only display images up to a certain resolution. There is a good chance your camera resolution is too high for the photo frame. try change the settings on your camera to 3mp or so and take a few photos and see if they will display.

Photo appears saturated green when set on manual setting


The image you selected for Custom WB is probably inappropriate - it may be shot somewhere else with different lighting or not enough of the image is white/grey. To do a proper Custom WB, take a picture of a white or grey card in the same lighting conditions as your subject. Go to menu, select Custom WB and choose that image. Then set your WB mode to Custom (if it's not already).

When you move to another site to take other photos, you must change your Custom WB image to another 'current' one. As the sun progresses through the day, your Custom WB will need to change as well. Auto WB will, in most conditions, be able to deal with changing light if you prefer not to keep updating your Custom WB.

Scanning photos into computer at a large size?!


This sounds like you are trying to scan images at a larger size than they actually are?
I am not an expert-(but I have a Mac)-but from what I'm reading, scan your photos at a 300-600 dpi resolution, then use photo editing software to enlarge them. The higher the resolution, the more disk space and the more photo detail (i.e. cracks, dust, scratches, paper type) will be captured, and the more time it will take to scan. Also, for the white, does your scanner allow you to select the area/define borders during the pre-scan? Mine lets me drag borders to just the image area (but capture the image first, then do the cropping and editing to a copy later).

White stripes


This is a problem with your camera lens. Either the digitizer, or the shutter. Either way you will need a new lens, or camera circuitry.

Lumix TZ3 zebra stripes in daylight pictures


hello sodaclub, this fault is normally caused from to much light entering through the lens, the shutter is not closing or working at all.

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.
