White horizontal lines when I take a picture

I have had this camera for over a year but have only taken like 50 pics...never been dropped or anything. Why is it that when I take a picture, fuzzy white horizontal lines come up....I've put in new batteries, which by the way, the camera goes through a ton only after about an hour. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated, I'd love to take some pics after I spent over 180 on this thing.

    I have the same problem and the white fuzzy lines seem to happen when I take pictures with light. Ive taken pictures at night at a dark bar and they come out clear. But pictures during the day or when a light is in the background come out with fuzzy lines.

    same problem. happened after it fell ~ 3 feet onto a linoleum floor. darker photos are eh okay, but any white and the fuzzy horizontal lines appear. Movies are okay, and picture viewfinder looks okay until picture is taken.

    Hi Bonnie, Just like to know if you see the lines on the screen before taking a picture, or if the screen is normal while taking a picture?

    Let me know, mr cicmo

OK. I think you should replaced damaged camera LCD. And you should take care of camera lens.

Picture taken is so bright and with trasparent horizontal line


If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

It's need repair camera machine shutter.

Blurry white image when pics are taken during broad daylight


Try first to reset your camera. Press the menu button, go over to setup, go down to reset, press the right arrow, highlight reset and press set. Don't worry it won't erase any of the pictures on your memory card. If that doesn't work you can try and manually set the white balance on your camera and I would recommend sending it into repairs if that doesn't work since it's taking nighttime pictures fine. :)

Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics


It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.

White horizontal lines on display.


Cameras dont like drop tests! Check if you are getting the same results on the images- printed or viewed on the computer screen. This will prove whether is is a LCD error or CCD error or Processor error But the remedy will be that same New Camera

It is certainly the CCD failing. Now you have had it over a year so warranty is out. But there have been instances of certain CCD's being subject to a recall- and the camera being replaced. Give Canon a support a go - you may get lucky.
