Thats what I'm talking about.
Thank you sir for going the extra mile man. This will come in very handy for those who need it.

Thank you for your time and efforts.

These should show, without any doubt, the soldering points and the placement of the cap.

Ha, ha, I am visualizing now some geek with smoking hair sitting on a singed lawn in front of the smoldering remains of his house......
I guess You have Your nick for a reason. :D 

I am a little surprised though, that Dlink doesnt accept ANY problem with their product, just give us a bunch of legal munbo jumbo. This is CLEARLY a problem, and not exactly flattering for them.

Oh well, at least they accept that the solution is being posted.
THANKS for this this JavaLawyer!

Glad to help...

FYI I'm a volunteer moderator, not a D-Link employee. You can probably guess my vocation from my member name and am wholly responsible for the "mumbo jumbo", and add that sort of language whenever I'm adding forum content involving third-party products or recommended mods that fall outside normal product use to avoid blurring the lines.  :D

Hi to all! First i want to say thank you to all community for such beautiful solution of this problem! I found this topic and decided to try to add the capacitor into my old DCS-930 (not L). And it works! No more horisontal blue lines! I used 1000uF 6.3V taken from dead motherboard. I was make a photo of board (sorry for quality, the photo has been taken using my cellphone). C39 is NOT short-circuited, its only looks like (bad viewing angle).

Here's the photo of board:


What was before modification:


And what become after:



The DCS-930 is the predecessor to the DCS-930L and was discontinued. Two separate models.
No, they are the same. I was able to flash DCS-930 with firmware for DCS-930L, and camera works! I was able to do this using Firmware Restoration page, and i did this because ATM the most freshest firmware for DCS-930 is 1.03 and the most freshest firmware for DCS-930L is 1.06 that much more stable and works better to me.

Worked on my DCS-932L. The component label's numbering was different, but the placement was the same as what others have posted, so I gave it a shot. I (re)used an old 470uF cap. Thanks! :)

BTW, did anyone play with the size of the cap to see what worked best? Just curious...

Thanks to JavaLawyer and everyone else involved with this fix. I preformed this on a DCS-930L H/W Ver A1. It worked like a charm. I used a 470uF 16V capacitors that I salvage from an old router. I fallowed the photo not the instruction. C38 point looked like C39 on mine. The ink was smudged. Im not sure what the correct label should be. Used the photo to locate the point. 

I never post to forums. But this place is so great. Keep up the good job guys.

The real thanks should go to members mommono and Freeride who first presented  procedures and photos for thus fix.

I would love to implement this solution, but how does one open the camera case without damaging it?
