NX300 problem?
Apr 1, 2013

Well, my nx300 arrived a day earlier than expected...

I have experienced a problem a number of times now, I think it only happens after start-up, where green lines flicker across the screen.

This can be just a few lines that disappear quickly, or it can go on for several seconds across pretty much the whole screen.

I say it happens on the screen, but it is actually just the image that is being displayed - icons appear normally over the image that is being captured.

I am unsure, but it looks like the image is distorted when this happens initially and it disappears when the image is corrected, but it is kinda hard to tell.

I know there aren't many out with this camera, but have any owners experienced this?

I am on holiday in a week, and not sure I can risk taking this camera with me.

Part of me thinks it's buggy firmware...

Dunno if I should just get a replacement or take a chance on taking it with me...

Never mind, managed to actually capture the problem on video:

Can't be taking this on holiday with me.

Thanks.

unfortunately it's not just a video issue.

I will try to get some photos up in the next week, but not going to have a lot of time before holidays

Sorry to hear, but no issues here....seems that you need to change that one.
