How to Fix the Digital Camera Lines on the Screen


New digital cameras have an increased pixel capacity, allowing for smoother looking images on par with 35 mm film cameras. However, it is still possible to see digital lines in the pictures you capture. The digital lines are due to a few different settings on the digital camera, with all the problems capable of being fixed through adjustment of the camera settings.

Things You'll Need

  • Digital camera
  • Lens cleaning cloth
  • Clean the lens of the digital camera. Dust and fingerprints can disrupt the path of light entering the shutter, causing it to displace and form lines through the image. Wipe the lens clean with a lens cleaning cloth (the same cloth used for cleaning eyeglasses).

  • Power on the digital camera and bring up the menu. Choose the capture options and select "Digital Zoom." Turn off the digital zoom function. A digital zoom increases the size of the pixels, causing a square look and increasing the lines through the image.

  • Turn on the flash feature while taking pictures at night or in the dark. Light is needed while taking a dimly lit image, and with an absence of light, the image becomes pixelated, and lines are seen throughout the image.
