Question #1: Several rolls of digitized films have been found to have light images. Can they be improved?
Answer #1: Several rolls of film for Jamaica Church of England Parish Register Transcripts, 1664-1880 were reviewed before publication and found to be light. The images were rescanned by FamilySearch to see if the quality could be improved, but unfortunately, FamilySearch was not able to significantly improve them.
Question #2: The final browse point Trelawny > Baptisms, marriages, burials 1838-1870, Vol. 2. is an index and not a transcript for the time period of 1838-1870. Are the transcripts available?

The Film Number and Catalog Film Notes associated with this final browse point is 1291731, Burials (v. 1-2) 1826-1836, 1836-1844. It is possible that the image was not captured by the camera operator. The missing burial dates are from January 9, 1833 to April 28, 1835.
Question #4: The final browse point All Parishes > Marriages 1873-1876, Vol. 2 > image 107 has two pages overlapped. Is there a way to see the images without the overlap?
Answer #4: The original microfilm can be viewed by ordering it into a FamilySearch Center. However, it appears that the same problem exists on the film. The film number is 1291739 Marriages (v. 2-3) 1873-1878. For instructions on finding the nearest FamilySearch Center and ordering microfilm see Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche.
Question #5: Is there an Index to Marriages, 1751-1871, Vol 3 for St. Elizabeth parish?
Answer #5: The St. Elizabeth, Index to Marriages, 1751-1871, Vol 3 is included in the final browse point St. Elizabeth > Index to baptisms 1751-1871, Vol 3 starting at image 78. The time frame on the Marriage index seems to go from 1837-1850, but on both the Marriage and Baptism Indexes, notes on the bottom of the page direct you to volume 4 to finish up indexes from this book.
Question #6: Are there other years in the browse point All Parishes > Baptisms 1843-1845?
Answer #6: Baptisms 1843-1845 contains records from 1840 to 1845. It can be confusing because the dates in the records are for baptisms and births.
