Try taking the camera in for a cleaning service. Having lived near the beach for sometime, believe me when I say, you would be amazed at where fine beach sand can get.

Why or what causes the TV to have white lines acros the screen


Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

What can cause horizontal white lines in a projection television? The TV is about 10 years old, and I am told it may be the internal power source. Could that be true?


can you see a pix or is it all white with lines running diagnally about every 1.5 inches--if you do not have a pix only lines problem is the 200 volt line feeding the crts(off flyback transfofmer)

Canon S2 IS - LCD screen is white after taking an outside picture


the image is all white or has lines through it.Definitely sounds like a repair issue, and has been a previous problem with the camera in the past. There is a defect in the sensor of the camera, and happens quite frequently in this model. I would try and contact Canon about it, and see if they'll repair it for free. If not, its probably going to cost more than the camera is worth to repair it.

Poor printing from my printer


Hi D

First off review my previous post about under head cleaning and follow the process through. Make sure you have no build up of fluff or a small piece of paper stuck below the head.

Once you have completed the under head cleaning cycle, let me know what difference is made via this post. Further wirk may be needed
