Troubleshooting / Failure diagnosis


  • A vertical line appears in the LCD, when I take a picture in a strong light.

[Assumed cause]

If you take a picture with a digital camera in a strong light, such as in sunlight or in a direct illumination, a vertical line may appear in the LCD.
This is a noise phenomenon (smear phenomenon) that is caused by a direct or a strong light.

This is a phenomenon specific to digital cameras that have the CCD. And it does not a failuter of a camera.
When taking a still image, it will appear during monitoring only and it will not affect a recorded image. But in movies, M-Cont, or S-Cont, a vertical line(s) may be recorded into a file.


If the above steps will not help, there may be something wrong with your camera. Please check the documentation that came with your camera for a service contact. Or find a local contact from the following site.
