Question about Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera

1 Answer

A Ghost Shadow appears when using the flash

Everytime I need to use the flash (particularly if the background is plain and light in colour) I get a false ghost shadow everytime. Am I doing something wrong or is it the camera? I have tried to use the SCN functions and if the light is insuffient, without the flash, the image comes out blurry.

Why is there ghost printing/shadows on my xerox workcentre 7335?


Suresh,
You don't say if the ghost is a particular colour, by ghost I suspect you mean similar to a drop shadow.
Firstly run off an internal test print, one of each colour if the grid lines are fine and showing no signs of shadow then your problem is not an internal problem. Don't send a C,M,Y,K test print from your computer, you can't eliminate colours that way.
If you can pin the problem down to one colour it could be a particular drum unit. Investigate from there.
Good Luck.

Color ghost/shadow printing problem


Suresh,
Run off an internal test print, one of each colour grid, from there you can pin down the problem. If one particular colour shows the problem then it could be the drum for that particular colour. the drums are interchangeable.
Good Luck,

How to take pictures of paintings without the image appearing dark using auto focus


It sounds like your camera is under exposing a little. If you can, shoot in "raw" mode, and adjust in the software the camera manufacturer provides. Other things you can do: adjust the white balance for the lighting, override the camera's exposure to get more light, use flash, etc.

Two vertical light brownish shadows have begun to appear on my 40" bravia kdls40a12u TV - what is the possible cause of these ?


I came across your post and would like to help you with that! Do you have DISH service? If so, try unplugging the receiver for at least ten seconds and then plugging it back in. Let me know what happens so I can assist further. I hope that helps!

After changing the ink catridges and resetting the drum fuse lately (note: it is known that the fuse will be blown off after certain number of prints but otherwise is in good condition), my Epson Acculaser...


The repeating image is a ghost image, and here is described what it can be. Probably if you solve this, you also solve the red-dot problem. If possible, I would suggest to replace the wiper blade.
Repeating images on laser printerThis likely means a faint ghost of the main printout at a distance equal to the circumference of one of the rollers or photosensitive drum.

Depending on where the problem originates, this could be a bad wiper (cleaning) blade, faulty corona, or incomplete fusing.


  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of the photosensitive drum, it is a wiper blade, erase lamp, or corona problem.A residual latent image or residual toner is sticking to the drum and not being properly cleared.

  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of one of the fuser rollers, then the fusing may not be complete due to damaged rollers or an incorrect temperature setting.

It is easy to determine where the problem is located: Interrupt a printout in mid-stride (where part of the paper is between the toner/developer and fuser. If the un-fused image has ghosting, it is a fault in the area of the drum

Poor fax printout quality


I would say you have a bad drum / toner cartridge.

Stuff you receive with vertical lines is probably the sender's dirty scanner.

Shadowing


GOOD DAY ND GOOD LUCK;

TRY THIS, IT WILL CORRECT CONCERN:

50V500 ONLY
GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image.
CONDITION:
A "ghost image" appearing to the left or right of images in the picture. Can be varying shades of a primary color (red, green, or blue) as well as gray. Can easily be seen in the 4 x 3 mode, at the edges of the picture.
CORRECTION:

To correct the problem, please do as follows:
  1. Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
  1. To enter the I2C Service Menu, with power off, (on the front control panel) press and hold the INPUT button. Then press the POWER button for two seconds. The following Service Menu will appear.
03b_ghost_image01.gif Figure 1
  1. BEFORE CONTINUING: CONFIRM THAT THE R, G and B DRIVE ARE SET AT 40.
  • Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.


  1. Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.
03b_ghost_image02.gif Figure 2
  1. Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once. The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
  2. Cursor right again, and a white screen will appear with a BLACK SQUARE in the center, as in Figure 3. You will see LCD ADJUST, followed by “SHP” and a number (value).

Figure 3

  1. If the unit is out of adjustment, you will see a gray ghost on either side of the black square. Move the joystick to the right or to the left until the ghost disappears. The number values will change up or down.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a lower value, there will be a ghost to the left of the square.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a higher value, there will be a ghost to the right of the square.
  2. Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
  3. Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
  4. Adjustment is completed
  5. I HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL, big IRISH.

Colour printing gives ghost image


Are you using genuine Brother color cartridges? If you are, then try different paper (20 pound laser printer paper or plain paper copier paper rather than inkjet paper,) Also, do not use recycled paper. If that does not work, you may need a new imaging (OPC belt) unit, or a new fuser assembly. Check your owners manual about when to replace the imaging unit or fuser. It is usually after 60, 000 prints have been run.
