Question about Samsung Digimax i50 MP3 Digital Camera

Horizontal lines across ALL pictures

I'm getting strange horizontal lines across my pictures.

It seems to be on ALL the pictures I take now, and I don't know why it's doing this, or how to fix it.

Here is an example:

It is only on the background on this particular picture, but is more prevalent on other pictures (which were so bad I never posted them anywhere)

Any ideas or suggestions?

    I have this problem too.
    It only happens when i am in bad light and don't use a flash.
    The unfortunate thing is this happened just after my warranty ran out.

SOURCE: Sudden discoloration, ghosting, bowed horizontal lines in top and bottom of picture

Everybody here seems to have basically the same problem so I will write a general fix for these Samsungs. First what you got is known as Convergence failure, A Ic or resistor, fuse or some other component has failed in the convergence circuit. So finding the service menu and trying to align the colors or spinning magnets on the CRT’s or a real bad idea of tipping a CRT or mirror would be the equitant of ripping the transmission out of your car because it had a flat tire. When the convergence fails no adjustment will bring it back, and if you do one of these stupid things then you have two problems. Now most of these Samsungs have an easily replicable board that all the convergence amplifiers are on. This can be found by removing the back and seeing if there is a board about 9 X 5 inches big and mounted to the CRT mounts, there will be 5 connector to this board. Now if your set does not have this board and instead has the two convergence Ic’s (these are about the size of a playing card and have the numbers STK392-040 on them) mount down on a board below and to the right ( this is known as the deflection board) this repair will not work for you. Instead you will need to component level repair the convergence circuit. But if you do have this separate convergence board the repair is fairly straight forward. Go to or some other supplier and order BP95-00142E this is the convergence board. This board has been crossed several times through the years but this is the current version. Now once you get this board simply replace it making sure to get al the connector back in there original spot. The fire up the set and run Flash focus and for about 95% this will fix the set

This was not a solution; it was the problem.
I had a new shutter installed by a professional for $85. It now works pretty well but I bought another digital camera.

SOURCE: My camera seems to short out and there are horizontal lines in the pictures.

get new batteries, if recharging your current batteries does not work (to stop it shorting out).

reduce your shutter exposure, by changing to Manual Mode (M), selecting +/-, and then the left button (flash) around the Menu OK button. Mine works fine at 1s shutter speed, but was showing horizontal lines before that ...
