Your problem lies in the ccd part of the camera it is the unit that covers light to data. graphic software like adobe photo shop can clear this up on the pictures. but the ultimate thing to have done is have the ccd replaced. whats the model of your camera? Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Out of focus pictures when shot with view finder


I had a problem similar to this. Try taking off your glasses or removing your contacts and try again. Best of luck.

Card locked shows of view finder, cannot take a picture it shows a't picture but won't take a picture


Look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Fuji S5000 magenta, green and white swirls on view finder


Sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong 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.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Samsung service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

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, and have a nice day.

When I take a picture with the Canon Rebel, it doesn't focus in the view finder, but when I look at the picture after it has been taken, it is clear and in focus. Why can't it looked focused when looking...


Good day,

The problem you might be having is that the view finder is out of focus.
If this is the problem it is an easy fix.
You will see a small wheel next to the view finder (it has a + and a - next to it), look through the view finder and let the camera focus on an object. Now turn the wheel and you will see the image either get worse or start to come in focus. Adjust the wheel until you are satisfied with the clarity.

Please let me know if this was helpful!

Regards

CCd failure


This is a good blog on CCD failure; http://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/camera-repair-blog/post/images-apear-to-be-distorted-e28093-images-do-not-apear-e28093-Might-be-the-CCD.aspx

Goes into the distorted images you describe, explains why it fails, what it looks like and how to fix it.
While the images actually look cool it's a real drag when it happens to your camera!
Other things that happen is the images do not appear, or show with a magenta hue, or green tint.

Color Problems


I know this contribution might be late, but try to avoid using the auto white balance. Use a tungsten mode and test each of its compensations until you get the desired result. I haven't had a similar problem on the 14n, but my D100 always places a magenta cast on white when shooting auto WB. I learned how to adapt the other WB modes to any situation.
