Question about Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

Estimate Camera being sent of

My camera is showing horizontal lines and i looked at a recent post and it said that it was probably a sensor malfunction. What would be a rough estimate on how much it would cost to bring it into a geek squad center to get it sent off.

Hey bryan163,
If the camera is not covered under any warranty a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store would charge $85 to send the camera out for service. Another option you would have is contacting the manufacturer and finding out if they have an authorized service center in your area. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Why is line flashing on monitor?


If the pictures have lines or marks in them when loaded up on a computer screen then it's a fault with the image sensor inside the camera, if they do not then it's a fault with the lcd screen on the camera, either way it's not an easy fix and will probably cost more than a new camera

Horizontal lines show up while taking photograph.People say the problem is with the image sensor.


That's probably true. The repair will probably be more expensive than purchasing a new digital camera, since the image sensor is one of the core pieces of technology inside digital cameras.

Horizontal Lines through the photo


Horizontal may not be due to the CCD sensor. It can be due to the lens itself. I swap lens from a non-working camera to replace the one with horizontal lines. I found out that I was able to get the camera to work to take great pictures.

Image sensor CCD chip is failing & requires replacing unfortunately, contact your nearest Canon Service Center for Estimate, but probably more economical to replace camera.

Redish, purlple tint and blurry display


If the pictures also show up that way on your PC,
then you the camera has a hardware problem in its sensor and must be sent in to be serviced.

If the problem only shows up on the camera's LCD, then that's the only issue, and can be solved by sending it in, or just accepting it as a minor issue.

Horizontal lines in pictures


hi If u find that the lines are vertical that is often a result of taking pictures of very bright subjects. This is  called vertical streaking. If the lines are horizontal lines there is probably something wrong with your sensor and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician , and they will send it out to have it looked at. hope this helps!
thank u rate me!!!

Pictures no longer show up, only partyl horizontal lines


It is the CCD and it is a defect, no fix that is economically feasible unless you get a parts cam of Ebay and make one good one. Too bad Sony will not fess up to this model as they have with some other "newer" models like the F717 as it has really put a cloud over the post consumer digital camera market.

Horizontal lines on image


Either screen or ccd sensor faulty. T establish which see if you can can normal playback : if the immage looks ok in playback mode it is the CCD sensor. Either way camera has to go to your agent or qualified repairer.

Canon a80 camera


It seems that either the image sensor or the connection between the image sensor and the processing board has been damaged or was improperly installed. If you sent it in because the lens was jammed it is highly likely that this is what has happened. See if you can get the facility who repaired it to cover the re-do, in the end it is their fault if your CCD is defective now and was not before the repair. However - if the camera was non functional after you dropped it they could very well say that the impact caused the problem. You might have no options besides either dealing with the issue or replacing the camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
