Question about Olympus Camedia C-4040 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Bright pixels? All the pictures I take seem to have four bright (blue) pixels exactly in the same position, all next to each other (2x2 square) The problem is not visible unless you zoom the pic quite a lot on PC. Is this "normal", or should I take the camera back to store?

Just a thought: doesn't the C-4040Z have pixel mapping for just this eventuality? Run that, and the stuck pixel cluster should disappear. Of course, whether you should * have* to use the facility straight away is a matter of personal opinion..., but at least there is something you can do about it. Use caution though, as presumably you can't get the stuck pixels back afterwards to use as your reason for returning the camera.

Dead Pixel Issue?


It must be really hard to get all the pixels in a large screen to be working. I've seen many with a very small number of pixels dead or stuck at one color

Change to resolution after picture taken


Sorry, can't be done. Those pixels weren't recorded, so there's no way to regenerate them.

Think of it this way. Suppose you look out the window and see a red car drive by. Look out the window an hour later and maybe a blue car drives by. Now, how many white cars drove by between those two cars? If you weren't looking (or had a surveillance camera), there's no way to tell. In your picture you've got a red pixel over here and a blue pixel over there. There's no way to tell what was in between.

There are some tricks that can be done to interpolate. If you have a bright red pixel and next to it a dark red pixel, then the pixel between them probably was a medium red. But maybe not: there could have been a blue object in between. Or the pixel in the middle might have been the same color as one of its neighbors. There's just no way to be certain.

You could try taking it back to the store if the (what seems like) the dead pixels are "distracting" you or "annoying" and if you are lucky you might get it exchanged.

It partially depends on the amount of the dead pixels present as for an LCD screen to be classed as being defective 0.01% of all of the pixels on the screen must be "dead".

God luck if you will try to exchange it.

SAMSUNG PLASMA


Do you mean that you have a bright blue dot on the screen that stays on all the time???

If this is correct, there is a fault in the display driver where a single pixel or a number of them are turned on all the time. This can be in the pixel driver device or circuit itself, or there may be a fault inside of the Plasma screen itself right at the lit pixel(s).

When you take the set in for service, they will be able to determine the exact fault. If it what I think it is, the service cost may not be feasible. I hope you have an extended warranty on this set!
