Re: Blue and red squares over my image

A histogram is a graphic representation of the distribution of brightness values in an image. The C-5500 has two histograms. One displays a real-time graph on the LCD screen as you compose your images and during the Quick View of images after they are shot. The DIRECT histogram displays potentially over and under-exposed areas in the image with a grid of squares—red for over-exposure and blue for under-exposure. You can set the histogram to OFF to prevent the histogram from appearing.

When I take a picture, the image comes out with some green lines going across it. What could possibly be the problem?


NOT a good sign --
If the lines are just on the LCD and NOT on the PC when downloaded , then it's the LCD missing a address line for the other colors. (green means you are getting yellow & blue but NO RED).
If the lines are both on the LCD / viewfinder and the PC then you have a sensor problem. The Glass lens just focuses the light onto a square sensor made up of thousands of light sensitive transistors which turn light into information (color codes) - which get sorted into images.
A sensor problem means the electronic collector is not reading one or more lines of sensors.

I hope it's number 1 - because the second fix is a factory fix assuming it's still under 90 days warranty. Ray

My screen colors are corrupted such that blues are green, reds are electric blue, yellows are lavender-pink. Pictures taken since this happened are OK when transferred to PMB/other picture program. Do not...


Hi,

This is a common problem on this set. This is either due to faulty CCD sensor or faulty LCD screen. Look at the previous recorded images or videos. If you see the same white lines in previous saved images or video's , it would be suggestive of LCD screen unless it is a faulty CCD sensor.

If that is LCD panel, it is not worth repair.If that is CCD sensor, then you could call up Sony to check whether CCD sensor of your model is under recall or not.

Read an old article :-

http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

If it is not under recall, try to get some good replacement or repair at low cost unless invest in new camera.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Sony a100 distortion dots - Im getting several


If these are single pixels on the LCD screen, they are normal. From pg. 8 of the user's guide:

"The LCD monitor is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD monitor. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the images in any way. "

This may also be helpful.

"images may trail across the LCD monitor in a cold location. This is not a malfunction. When turning on the camera in a cold location, the LCD monitor may become temporarily dark. "

Color off seems amber


Double check the wb settings in camera, (and be sure to check WB Shift) I'd suggest adding a Blue shift to your images to compensate for the Amber until you find something thats a decent trade off, if you can't eliminate the amber shift.

Distorted color on image


You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says. "You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."

Camera Takes Pictures of black squares with blue streaks in it


Hi billmik, Try cleaning the contacts on the battery door, carefully. This usually fixes the problem. If it does not, take the camera to a camera shop for a cleaning. This will solve the problem, and is much cheaper than buying a new camera. Let me know how it works for you. Best regards, nightdiver
