This could be caused by a couple of things. The first one is the toner cartridge. A defective or low toner cartridge can cause light "grainy" looking copies. If you have a spare toner cartridge try that first. The second possibility is dirty scanner optics. The scanner bar that lights up under the glass and moves back and forth has 3 mirrors on it. When they get dirty is causes your scanned image (before it gets copied) to appear light and patchy looking. The glass must be removed by removing the 4 screws on the left hand side. Then the scanner can be pulled out and the 3 mirrors cleaned. If you have the machine hooked up to a computer to be able to print then these mirrors will NOT affect PC prints. If PC prints are grainy then that would point to the toner. The dirty mirrors will only effect the copies.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

What image resolution should i be using for regular 4x6 prints i have a 10.1 megapixel camera, but my pics still look grainy


Your pictures should not be looking grainy. Are they printed grainy but look clear on your screen. If so then it's just your printer. Try forcing the flash in the highest resolution. If you video's are grainy too then there is possibly something wrong with your camera. Make sure your lens is really clean. Worst case your CCD sensor inside your camera could be bad. Hope not!

Change 72 dpi to 300 dpi


Your camera cannont shoot at either 72 dpi or 300 dpi. It shoots at whatever resolution you have it set for. Dpi (dots per inch) is a print specification, denoting how large (or small) your pictures are printed.

The DSC-W100's highest resolution is 3264x2448. Printed at 72 dpi, it can generate a print bigger than 40x30 inches, albeit a bit grainy. Printed at 300 dpi, you can generate 10x8 inch prints.

Again, dpi is a measure of how you print pictures. It has no bearing on how you capture images with your camera.

Quality of pictures when printed are very grainy,


the problem must be because of the resolution dpi value. it does not matter if your image is BIG and looks great on your comp, but if the dpi value (which can be found by Image->properties thru the right-click option) is lower than say 300, the image won't look good on print.

Fujifilm finepix f20le. circular grainy pic loss of sound


First go to the SETUP menu and make sure that the PLAYBACK VOLUME setting is set to a value greater than 0. Try increasing the shutter speed of any photos as CCD's will notoriously produce grainy images on slow shutter speeds. Grainy videos will indicate poor light, camera shake during filming or moving too quickly so the autofocus cannot function correctly, or using too low a resolution and will be especially noticeable at 640 x 480 when viewed on a large high resolution screen. If all the above make no difference then you may need to get the camera serviced.

Samsung SCX5312 copies look very pixilated/grainy. Prints look fine. I cleaned the Optics. This got rid of the background but did not correct the CQ. Has new drum & fuser. Problem is definitely in...


Hello sir;Did you reset copier after you replace a new drum? if not please do it, if still have problem, you need adjust shading;
Close doccument feeder, select adjust shading . press "set up" An image will be scanned and a ccd shading profile will be print put, if the printed image is different than the image the ccd is bad.

AL1917W LCD Monitor Images start to go grainy then break up especially with text.


Appears to have been a virus, a variant on the win32 issue. What is troubling is that it was only caught by NOD32 on system startup. However the problem is solved.

Zooming with Olympus Stylus 820


Hey missy0528,
There are a few reasons your images might be grainy, one of which is your image quality is set to low. I would always have the camera set to the highest resolution possible, because you can always reduce the size of an image but you can never make it bigger. Another cause of grainy images in digital cameras is the sensitivity of the camera (ISO) is set to high. Since you are only seeing grainy images when you use the zoom the reason for the grainy images is most likely do to using the digital zoom. All a digital zoom does is crop the image much as you can do in some computer applications, and by doing this you greatly reduce your image quality. I would never use a digital zoom. Your camera has a 5x optical zoom and a 5.6x digital zoom. I would only use the optical zoom. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Grainy Pictures


This camera with the ISO set to 100 ASA, the electronic zoom turned off, and with the mode on Automatic "A", should take very good pictures.

I would give the camera to the manufacture for service, and include some samples of what the results are. It would be recomended to do this while the camera is under warranty.

Noisy or grainy images


When you press the “T” zoom button, the image in the viewfinder will become closer. However, since the D-435 uses a digital zoom, the lens doesn't physically zoom, it takes the existing image and enlarges your image using an electronic program. This can result in a “noisy” or “grainy” look to the image, which is normal when using the digital zoom.
