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

SOURCE: Dropped camera- screen is white

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

Fuzzy Pictures w/ Nikon D3000


If this is a new camera, it should still be under warranty. I suggest you contact Nikon before doing anything else to determine if the repair would be covered under warranty. Nikon also would be in a position to advise you as to what the problem might be so that in the event that the repair is not covered under warranty, you don't replace the wrong thing.

Monitor for the Canon Powershot A75 is blurry.the pictures taken previously are fine that are on the memory card.


you say previous pics are ok Just the newer ones. Only a guess but it happens regularly... Makes sure you have not set the camera to MACRO mode as if its not aq close up then a;ll pics will be fuzzy and blurred.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

"fine lines" on every pic taken


See this link. What you're describing sounds like an image sensor (CCD) problem. Canon will fix this at no cost, regardless of warranty status, if they determine that this is the issue.

My FE-230 is only 2 years old and will not turn on/off properly


This sounds remarkedly like a camera that has been dropped. Even by someone else! The odd noise it the can[mera trying to set the lens up and failing. The black screen is because the lens has not travelled the distance etc. multiple problems !
it needs a complete overhaul and may well be cheaper to ditch it and get a new camera

All of the pictures taken are very fuzzy no matter what you do


check to see if a flower appears on the screen. If it does then the camera is set to macro and all your pictures except close up will be fuzzy. To switch macro off, move the ring on the front of the camera till the arrow is pointed straight down. I was having the same problem. Wasted a whole day of vacation pictures. That was what fixed my problem and I hope it fixes yours too,

If you dropped the camera then the lense is out of alignment from when you dropped if mabey it can be fixed or not. It will cost much to fix the camera.it has a gear mechanisim so if its out of line its fuzzy pics.
