Camera (Z612) was dropped on a hard surface. Camera works except for vertical lines appearing on LCD screen after shot. Pressing review button, shot usually appears OK. Can this vertical line error be corrected/repaired??

If your pictures taken with the camera are seen when downloaded to the PC, the it is sure that the LCD is faulty or damaged.
The presence of vertical lines show that the processor driver to the LCD has failed. You have confirm cost of the new LCD before it can be decided.
This is a problem with the LCD and/or possibly the optics in the camera. Typically happens when the camera is dropped or receives a heavy jolt. You will need to take it to a repair person or have the camera replaced.
Thus meaning what display on the LCD is exactly what "enters" through the lens. Is this a hairline or thick line appearing on the LCD and does the same happen on the photos/pictures when they are downloaded on a PC? If so "something" could have infiltrated into/onto the camera lens....
Hi! If the lines appear while looking at the menu, then it's a broken LCD. If the lines appear only while taking pictures - faulty CCD. Contact your local Sony service center, but
if they ask too much, you can contact me at email@example.com
and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.
I had/have the same problem. All I do is flip the camera vertical and it works. The screen displays appropriately, I think its some type of lens inside the camera that has came lose and it lines up properly when held vertical. It's a **** one solution, but it worked on mine and you can still take pictures. I would like to be fixed completely but I don't know how to. HELP!
As I suspected, the flexible circuit board which connects the fluorescent back light to the power source was severed. Although it didn't appear broken at first, the LCD came on as I poked the flex board. I removed a small amount of insulation and reconnected the two copper leads. Problem solved. The flex board I speak of is an amber colored ribbon; it can withstand high temperatures and is quite durable. There are two copper leads embedded in the ribbon. One end of the ribbon is sealed within the LCD, the other end terminates in a locking surface mount connector. You can unlock the connector by pulling back on the little brown latch. If you have a severed flex board, be extremely careful in repairing the connection. Once you begin removing the amber coating, it becomes fragile.
