Red lines My camera is choosing when it wants to work. I bought the thing in March so it is not that old. Every now and then I get these red lines all across the screen and when I take the picture and upload it, it is still red lines all across. Please help!

Red lines in pics could also be the sensor that captures the image malfunctioning... if it is in the warranty period, send to the repair center

It seems that you have been selecting Panoram view to shoot photos. Go to menu and change the image options and select SHQ or whatever and not panorama. This should solve the problem. Panorama view shows the grid lines all over the screen and it is meant for taking 360 degree panoramic views.

Red light laser doesnt come on anymore

Same thing happened to me today (after 1 day of working). I called the toll free customer service line 1-888-726-6369, told them what happened, they asked for the manufactured month (printed on sticker on back of unit, mine wash March 2012), and will be sending a replacement unit via fedex. Try it!

Bought new componant cables for new tv and the wii will not play in color. tryed moving cables around still no luck the different combo's that i tried either switched every thing to all red or all blue!...

Make sure the colors line up.

If the tv has a second componant input then test it in that input.
What model tv are you pluging it into?

Hello I just bought today a Fuji digital camera A230 model. On the back screen I see this tiny red dot on it. Should I get it repaired ? Thank you.

Is the red dot the only thing you see on the screen? Does the owner's manual mention the red dot? If you're concerned and this is a brand new camera, take it back.

Flashing Red Light....

The flashing "boat" in the middle of the viewfinder just means the button battery is dead. Camera will still work. It's the little pull-out light grey plastic thing that's next to the heel of your right hand when you're using the camera normally. You need a CR2025 cell.

Red vertical lines/no picture

Hi there. Contact sony service centre directly and ask them about replacing the ccd. I have a vx2100 which did exactly the same thing. Sony admits that there was a problem with the ccd's used in these cameras and replaced them for free, maybe the same for your camera. good luck
