Pictures look like view through a venetian blind

Worked fine til recently. Problem intermittent at first, Now stills on all settings look as though viewed through a partially closed blind. (horizontal colored bars, evenly spaced) and usually over exposed. Movie mode works fine.

    Hi,





    Thanks for your idea, but it is actually as if you took a photo through
    a ventititan blind. There are many hortizontal bars, not two
    horizontal and two vertical.

Got a problem with Nikon coolpix s255 works fine on video but every picture has white lines as soon as taken or on viewing image . Looks like picture is behind a white Venetian blind


Those white lines should not be there and it indicates that something is wrong with the electronics of the camera when shooting video.

Take out the memory chip and play it back video on a computer. If it plays back fine on computer then the playback camera circuits are fubar. If also bad on computer then the anomaly is in the record section of camera.

Repairing those cameras since they are small and the parts are proprietary is an expensive proposition that you would only entertain if the camera was initially a very expensive one. Repairs on less expensive units are simply not cost effective.

When reviewing a picture on the camera, fine white lines appear in the picture similar to venetian blinds.


The same problem occurs when view the pics in pc monitor? If yes, 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.

: Pictures are in gray and have horizontal lines


This is typically a bad image chip within the camera. You didn't specify what kind of camera you have, but chances are it is a point and shoot, non SLR camera. If this is indeed the case, it will likely be more economical to purchase a new camera as opposed to repairing this one.

Image flicker when viewing pictures in playback mode


You have the camera in Highlights mode.. while in playback use the up,down,right,left pad press it up and it will go through different displays like what settings you had the camera in when you took the picture then there is a graph screen... after that one is the highlights display which is what you have it on. Push up one more time to have it on regular playback mode. The manual explains this much better than I just did. If you have the manual you should check it out if my instructions dont help.

Help... white lines


I also have the same problem! I absolutely love this camera but suddenly out of the blue I have stripy lines on the screen that look like you are looking through a venetian blind. I have contacted Fuji but they say it will cost £99 to repair or have offered £50 discount on any other camera. I just want my F460 working ok. Please, please can anyone help us?

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem


No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
