Question about HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Dirty lens A while ago I noticed rainbow coloring on my photos. After cleaning the lens, it was fine for a while, now it is back, and I think that the lens is dirty/oily inside the camera. How can I take the lens apart to clean on the inside? I've contacted repair shops, but nobody seems eager to do it. I've opened the back of the camera, but cannot get to the lens' inside. If somebody can help to explain how to take it apart, I would appreciate it very much. Thanks.

It would never be recommended to open the camera's lens on your own. That is exactly the reason why the repair shops are reluctant to open it. If you are having issues taking pictures due to the dirty lens and the camera is still under warranty, please talk to HP and they must be able to offer help on this. good luck

I have a philips 60 that leaked out oil need to replace

If you can still powerup the tv and see a picture and sound is fine, you can probably save the TV. Pull out the board that was drenched in oil and let it sit in a warm area for a few months, it will dry and should be fine. You will need to purchase projection fluid... see MCM Electronics.com. Then you will have to do complete convergence on just the one color tube that you replaced the oil. The code to enter to do this is 062597 MENU on the remote. You will see instructions to converge. Please find the technical instructions that should be stapled to the back of the tv. Or locate the service manual on this website to see what keys on the remote to work. Remember the only color you will be working on, is the tube you fill. Good Luck and be very patient.

DSC-T70

No setting can cause white spots on the picture, this is a fault.

By the way you can reset settings on this camera to initial state by simply removing and putting back camera batteries.
Alternatively you should have a reset command on camera settings menu.

My opinion is that this is a fault and not a settings problem.

Typically there are three kind of faults that can cause this problem:

1 - Dirty lens or water inside the lens:
The lens may be dirty inside, for example because of water condensation on internal surfaces, this will cause blurred dots or black dots. The lens must be taken apart and cleaned in this case.

2 - Defective CCD sensor.
The CCD sensor is the chip that detects the picture, if you get well defined white or colored spots on picture that is probably a defective CCD. I think this is the more likely in your case. To fix this the sensor must be replaced.

3 - Defective video chip on internal board.
This can cause any kind of problems, however it is quite unlikely.
It is an expensive repair.

Cannon G7 need help

Hi
Had the same problem a few months ago.There was a high pitchedwhisltle and I think the screen said "lens fault.turn off camera" or something similar.Bought a G9 to replace as the 7 was out of guarantee but sent the 9 back to the e-bay reseller as it was obviously secondhand with grit around the lens ring and the viewfinder.Ebay never again!.So 3 months ago ago I tried the G7 again with a fresh charged battery before I consigned the camera to the loft.I noticed that each time i switched on the whistle and message was there but the lens extended slightly further each timeso I kept rebooting until the lens was fully extended.Turned the camera off and on again and everything was back to normal.It seems that this may be Canons protocol when a camera goes back.Its been absolutely fine until today.It wont boot up at all.I have tried 2 fresh charged batteries and its dead.Any ideas anyone?

Canon i550 has has rainbow line in output

Even though you say you have ink, the "rainbow" line is usually an ink problem. Try doing a head clean process.

Right-mouse click on the printer and bring up "Properties". There should be a 'Maintenance" tab and one or more cleaning options and/or nozzle checks.
