Question about Sanyo Xacti E6 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Sanyo Xacti

This camera is about 2 years old and some of the images now appear lighter on one side of the picture than the other. There is a division right down the middle of the picture and it is light on one side and dark on the other This does not happen with all pictures taken ... only about 20% of them. I am not sure if I chose the correct model.. none of those listed are on my camera but it is a still and movie digital camera

    Thanks so much for your help. Do you recommend I take it to the store where I got it for repair ? It was not a "Big box" store but a local camera store. I am attaching an example of the picture problem to confirm that this is what it might be. Thanks again

    I just found the exact Model number which is VPC HD1 There was another post that said the CCD Imagers were defective in this camera and Sanyo was replacing them so I called Sanyo and that is not the case with this one apparently. Thanks Mary Ann

Either the CCD imager is failing or there are ribbon cables that are coming unseated inside. IF it's cables it should be a cheap fix. If it's the CCD it will be upwards of $100.

    If the store where you bought it does repair work, give them a try. if not, try to find an authorized Sanyo service center or call around to local repair shops for rates.

Our Phillips flat screen TV picture is split down the middle vertically. One side shows a mirror image of the other side, and then sometimes one side is a lighter shade than the other, when it is full...


This may be due to a faulty Timing Control board (TCON board). I had a similar problem with my Samsung LCD TV picture being split vertically down the middle. The image on both halves appeared fuzzy and in reverse (mirror) including the menus. I replaced the TCON board and the problem was resolved.

Hi - I have a Nikon D50 and am using a Panasonic 1GB memory card -- that I have used for several years. Just recently the carmera only allows 12 pictures on this memory card & I'm not sure what is...


Thast's a bit odd, Elise.
A couple of things to check:
1. Is the lock switch in the fully UP position? It is a little slide switch on the side opposite the cut-off corner. Slide it right down then back up again .
2. Does the card have old images, music or other data stored on it? It will hold up to 400 5mb images but it does, like all memory cards, have finite capacity.
3. Have you tried formatting the card in camera?

Image saves as random purple/ green patterns


Your CCD chip in the camera is defective. There is a lot of information on the web regarding this phenomenon. Here's a link to much of that info, http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1128958202.html
Note that the info is getting a little outdated now, as this problem has been identified and rectified. It only appeared in cameras that are now about six years old.

Write protect message appears on screen


Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.

Hoizontal lines in images


The problem is faulty CCD sensor ( this device converts light into image ) so faulty sensor means either poor quality pics or no pics at all. Have sensor replaced and camera will work fine.

Dark pictures


You did not say what sensitivity setting you had the camera set at- the higher the sensitivity the lighter the picture. Actually- all the image information is there so all that needs to be done is to edit the image lighter in a graphics editing program[You did say whether or not you import images to a computer] Come back back with more info on what you do with the images.

To transfer pictures: 1. Remove the memory card from the camera. 2. Insert the memory card into the floppy disk adapter. Make sure that you insert the memory card into the adapter with the gold side of the memory card facing you and to the right and the silver side of the adapter facing away from you. 3.
