This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

Affected cameras with this problem include: A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a

Nikon coolpix s710 pictures have a streak


I think your picture has a bright light source in the frame. In digital cameras this phenomenon is common that in some angle these streaks of lines are produced with very bright light sources. be careful not to include bright light source while taking pics. But if u have these streaks and line in all the frames, then better check your camera with the service centre.

How to fix olympus fe-340 streak and peaks verticaly when picture taken


Not sure you can fix this, but most of the time the stripes are produced in a dark environment with one or a few bright lights. The streaks start on the bright light. Most of the time if you shoot the picture the streaks are not on the picture.
You could try to switch the camera to the automatic, or perhaps night scene.
If the streaks are there in normal light, I think your camera is defect.

Streaks on porcelein tile from shark steam mop


Try washing your pads in JUST water and Baking soda or Borax (and only about a tbs). Sounds like a hard water problem. I had the same issue with my wood floors so I put some Murphy's Oil in a spray bottle and it polished my floors while I steamed. Perhaps there is a good tile cleaner/polish you can spray with a spray bottle while you mop? Just a suggestion. I haven't had this particular issue with tile (our floors are concrete and wood) but the streaks went away when I started using just Borax in my laundry with them, no fabric softener, no dryer sheets. My mom used to use Isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle with her steam mop. Make sure your tile is well seeled too, it gives you a better finish. The alcohol dries on it's own too without leaving residue.

I have a LG 42LB5D 42" 1080 LCD television that


hi, usually you can correct this issue with only a few system checks, dark streaks can be caused by damaged pixels on the screen, in which case you need to replace the TV.
  • Inspect where the dark streaks are on the television. If the streaks occur at the same place on the top and bottom of the screen, they are due to the formatting of a movie or television show you are watching. This is normal. Also, if the streaks appear on the left and right of the screen, they are due to the show being filmed in full-screen instead of wide-screen. This also is normal.

  • Change the input setting so you are viewing the contents of a different device. If the dark streaks are gone, you know they are due to the device connected to it. However, if the dark streaks remains no matter what input the TV is connected to, the problem lies with the television.

  • Inspect the cable connection. Oftentimes when connecting a computer to an LCD TV, you can have strange dark streaks across the screen. Use a DVI-to-HDMI cable connection when plugging in your computer, then press the "Menu" button on your TV remote, select "Picture" and chose "Square Pixel." See whether the image adjusts and the dark streak goes away.
  • Contact the manufacturer of your LCD television if the dark streak remains. This streak can be caused by a defect in the television; if the TV is still under warranty, you can have it replaced.

    Dark shadow-like vertical streaks thru LCD screen (Sharp)


    Hi, I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD Projection TV that has a blotted gray streak across the front of the screen. I only use a damp cloth to clean the window and that doesn't seem to help. It really shows up on light pictures and is unnoticed when the picture is a little darker. What can I do to fix this problem???
