Question about Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

A red line appears in center of my pictures .

I have recently started to see a fine red line in the center of my downloaded pictures and also when I view the pictures on my camera. It does not matter what lens I use, this is happening with all lenses.
I am not sure if I have accidently pressed a setting that I am unaware of or if this could be a problem that needs repair.

Does anyone have an idea of what this could be?

    I have noticed a similar problem recently, when taking photos in low light a very faint red line appears on the right side of the screen. It does not appear at all in bright light (natural sunlight only). I have been photoshopping it out but I would like to get it fixed.

Sometimes fine lines but other times like a burst of light. This just started happening recently. But when I take a picture in the dark with the flash the photo turns out fine. Any answer as to what caused this? Thanks

We keep getting vertical lines appearing on the photographs we take using the canon powershot a470 one day it was fine the next the lines started appearing no settings were adjusted it hasn't been knocked...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

I recently purchased a canon powershot sx20 15 and it is slow!


You need to do two things. 1. Take a Q-Tip dampened in rubbing alcohol and clean the battery contacts inside the compartment. Clean the battery and the charger also using the same method. 2. Go into your main menu and restore all factory defaults. You should be all set after these steps are taken. Thank you, Dana

PowerShot A85 capture fault


Yup, it is a common problem. The shutter is jammed. I bet outside pictures are really overexposed. The horizontal lines are caused by the electronic noise created by the shutter solenoid trying to move the shutter. If the cameraq is no longer under warranty- Sometimes, you can free up the shutter by banging the camera in a hard surface like a desk or table. (Do this carefully, don't get carried away) If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the whole lens unit. this is best if the warranty is still good.

A horizontal or vertical red line appears on picture.


Red lines are caused by glare. Avoid photographing shiny surfaces that reflect excessive amounts of light into your lens.
