"Corrupt rows of pixel across the pictures"


SE
          

I bought a second hand J1 a month ago which have begun showing annoying lines across the pictures. I took test pictures then but I did not see anything like this. A week ago there was only 2 out of 100 pictures with lines. Todays it's 1 in 3...

Never on the same position. Sometimes one line. Other times repetitive lines with a constant space between them.

First I thought it was the Eye-fi card going bad but I then swopped cards and other show the same lines.

Bad DSP and/or corrupt internal memory?

I've asked Nikon Support but not received a reply yet.

The only times I've seen things like this the imaging sensor was at fault. I haven't heard of any reports of the Nikon 1 series showing this but I have seen other DSLRs like the Nikon D50, D70, and D700 having lines across the image.

Hi Petter,

I am sorry to hear of this problem.

If it were the sensor itself (or individual light sensors, as with "hot" pixels), I would not expect the position of the line(s) to vary. It seems the lines are being generated on a random basis during image processing, as I think you are suggesting in your question. Do you also see the lines in live view and/or when viewing the image on the camera's screen, or only on your computer screen after downloading the file? That information might provide some additional insight.

Please let us know what Nikon Support (Sweden?) says.

I do not see the lines in LV. Only post when displayed on camera or on computer and both in jpeg and nef so it seems to be something wrong during readout from sensor or post processing before writing it to the SD card.

I gave Nikon Sweden a visit with the body for service after their support staff recommended me to do so. It's great to live just a mile away from the HQ & Service center

Anyway, it will be intresting to see if they will service it under warranty or not since it's a second hand unit.

Hi Petter,

FWIW, my experience has been in the US that warranties generally are not transferrable. Some can be, but that, along with any conditions for transfer, is spelled out in the original warranty.

Good to hear that a resolution is at hand. I hope the costs and service will be more satisfactory than not for you.

I asked Nikon for an estimate before service but they now state on their web that they are awaiting spare parts.

Intresting to see if this means they do the work under warranty or if they missed the estimate part.

OK here's an update.

Nikon serviced the J1 under warranty
They replaced the 1B061-344 Image Sensor Unit. Though the shutter count was not reset.

Hi Petter,

Good to hear it was taken care of under warranty.

>They replaced the 1B061-344 Image Sensor Unit.

Hmmm. I wonder what all is included in the "Unit?"

>Though the
>shutter count was not reset.

I'm guessing that's because the shutter was not replaced?

Yeah but what is the "shutter" on a camera that dont have a one per se. And only have an electronic shutter which is working tightly with the sensor?

Anyway Nikon handled it well.

Probably thinking of the V series which does have a mechanical shutter.

Glad you have it working. I figured it was the sensor.

Glad it's fixed. It doesn't surprise me that the shutter count wasn't reset. When I had the shutter (an actual mechanical one) replaced in my D3, they didn't reset the shutter count. I don't think it's something they normally do.
