In your Recording Menu, check that the Disp. Overlay is turned Off. The lines are showing the portion of your image that will be cropped if you print a 4 x 6 photo (3:2 Guide).

Hi there! Is it possible that your finger might be covering one or both of the microphones while you are recording? They are at the top of the camera, above and to the right of the Canon logo--those tiny black dots.

What causes a pink section at bottom of screen when turning camera on?


Hi there:
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.

When i switch on my Vivitar Vivicam 7024, it switches on normaly and resumes normal function (e.g. taking photos, videos, and looking at images). but the screen itself is damaged, it has a large black...


I'm sorry to say that but the screen of your camera appears to be damaged.
May be YOU didn't drop it, but someone else might have. Most probably the screen was pressed hard against something (might be while stored). That's what the black circle and colour lines suggest. The colour lines are somewhat like colours you see when oil is put on water, isn't it? That means the LCD screen is damaged.
I suggest to take it to repair shop and get the screen replaced, specially if you don't have experience repairing cameras.

I purchased a samsung ES70 compact digital camera last year and lately a black line has appeared across the bottom of the screen, could I get rid of it or would i have to purchase a new camera?


Hi,

If the line is only on the display and not also on the photos when you download them to the pc, then you only need to have the LCD display replaced. The screen should cost like ~$20 as you can see here: http://www.aliexpress.com/product-fm/307874294-Replacement-Camera-LCD-Screen-display-for-Samsung-Digimax-S630-S730-S750-D75-NEW-Free-Shipping-wholesalers.html

Photos have a black band at top and bottom. This has never occurred before on my Canon EOS Rebel XT. I use auto mode for all functions and have not changed any menu settings.


If you use the lens in wide and the f lash is not wide as same (if the lens is 18 wide and the f lash is 28 wide ) you will not get good photo so if use 18 mm wide lens then use 18 mm wide f lash and ( i have told about external flash )

Screen border


You are probably in the "3:2" ratio print setting. This is accessed through the "F" button, under image quality. The 3:2 is a ratio of height to width which corresponds to a 4x6 inch print. The other settings are approx. 4x5.33 inches in h to w ratio. Just change the quality setting to the larger megapixel settings and the bars will disappear.
