Hi if you print the photos off they will be fine the problem you are having is with the lcd screen this is on its way out, the problem with this is that know one will replace the screen for you as the cost of repair will out way the cost of the camera.

the only solution you have is to get a new camera i know its not the news you want to hear but their isnt anywhere that will repair this for you.

you can still use it and print the pictures off and they wll be just fine but their is no way of getting it fixed unless you can do the work yourself and you buy a damaged camera for the spares its not easy but can be done.

please let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this post as i have a whole page of unrated posts

We keep getting vertical lines appearing on the photographs we take using the canon powershot a470 one day it was fine the next the lines started appearing no settings were adjusted it hasn't been knocked...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY LINES APPEAR ON VIEWING SCREEN AND ALSO ON SAVED PHOTOS. MANY THANKS. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT I MIGHT HAVE PRESSED A WRONG BUTTON?


Lines appear on your photo's because the shutter is either stuck or is not firing completely over the lens when you take a shot. You will either get overexposed pictures (white out) or these lines like it is taken through a blind.
The most common cause for this is moisture residue building up on the shutter leafs over a period of time.
An easy way to verify this is to use the video function. It should be perfectly fine as this function does not use the shutter. This will also eliminate the sensor as the cause of the problem.

Photos appear to have lines across them as if ventian blinds


Your shutter is not firing correctly.
To confirm this try taking video as this mode does not use the shutter.
Lines on your photo's mean over exposure due to the shutter not closing over the lens completely.
Lens will have to be dismantled and cleaned

There are lots of white lines on my photos. It doesn't seem to matter what the setting is, flash or not, and I've replaced the batteries which are new. The lines go accross each picture like a venitian...


Then unfortunately this is a problem with the image sensor on the camera. It would cost more to fix than to just purchase a new one. If you do go for a new one please recycle the old one at a location that takes e-waste. Sorry for the bad news.
Take Care,

The image is getting blurred


Hi

The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting
movies.)

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.

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?
