Question about Cameras

1 Answer

We are getting a streak of light on our film. It stays in the same general area of the film but also moves a little to one side or the other from time to time. Why would this be? It seems like it is about the width of one of the rollers but it streaks all the way across the film.

There could be several causes for this. I am not sure what kind of camera you are using, but if it is a DSLR, switch out the lens and see if that corrects the problem. Also try rebooting it, take the lens off, turn the power off, pull out the battery, wait 30 minutes, and then re-assemble and try again. If the problem still persists, it could mean there is a light leak. Here's how you can check, enclose the camera in a box and just make a small opening big enough for your lens to stick out. If the streak is still there, I suggest calling the manufacturer.

Please let me know if you found this helpful by rating my solution.

Have a great day!

I have a canon ir3030 there is one side sightly dark and one side sightly light in same page i need solution?


Hi
You will probably need to replace the toner cartridge.

If you are certain it is not nearing empty, try removing the cartridge, putting in a plastic bag and giving it a little shake. Then clean the area around where the toner comes out both on the cartridge and on the printer.
That might help a little, but generally once it starts fading it means you are coming to the end of the toner/ or possibly fuser unit

You might also try changing your settings to print higher quality. That might allow you to get a few prints out a bit clearer, but will also speed up the demise of your cartridge

I am using the Epson Perfection V700 photo scanner to scan dental xrays. Sometimes the xrays come out perfect, other times I get streaks across the image. Sometimes the streaks are colored, othertimes...


You have to use the "FILM AREA GUIDE" included with the scanner. This black plastic guide leaves a small area at the top of the glass open so that the scanner can calibrate itself at the start of each scan. Use the guide or leave at least 8mm between the top of your film and the top of the scanner glass.

I have a Canon iR1024A that is leaving black streaks down side of paper... I have changed the toner.. cleaned out where the toner goes... and changed the drum... nothing changed.. can you help me


If you have changed the drum then probably your fixing film was torn. Check if the black streaks on paper is erasable (not fixed on the paper). Check also for signs of film (gray on one side and brown on the other very thin plastic-like material) falling out from your fixing assembly (if you open the left side cover with caution sign the hot portion area).

35mm film developed with streaks


I take it the streak is a hot streak of light. If you're shooting negative, look at the negative and see if it's one long streak. If so the light leak could be anywhere between the film roll and the take up roll. I would open up the back, go into a closet and shine a bright light on the front of the camera and see if you can find the leak and tape it up. Otherwise, 35mm SLR's are very cheap these days. I'd recommend a Canon A-1 for your daughter, but you can't go wrong with any Canon or Nikon.

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???

Cannon mx 310 error 5100 Says chck printr with alarm light flashi


heres the problem from service manual: error 5100, a error occured in your encoder signal, it list 4 things in the serice manual.
carriage unit. carriage motor, logic board, timing **** film.
ok my first thing i would look at is the film that runs directly behind the print head i would think it is dirty. just turn on printer and get print head to the middle and turn off machine, gentle move print head to one side and gentle clean the film strip with a cloth with a little metho on it, move print head to other side and clean other part of ****.
i reckon that will fix your problem its a common problem they tend to get a bit of grease on the timming ****.

Bad copies on our Canon ir2200


Most likely the fixing film needs to be replaced. A few years ago Canon made the fixing films available to authorized dealers.The film itself should only cost a few dollars.The other thing might be the Drum unit itself.They are not so cheap.Independent dealers and service agents are generally cheaper than say, Ikon or Danka

Light streaks on the side of my photos they go from top to bottom on the left or right side of photo. It's a 35mm camera with color film


Check at the hinged side of the film door for worn or missing light tight foam rubber. It degrades after a few years and needs to be replaced.
