Re: Line on photo
Have you tried to pixel map the camera, It is a menu setting option probably in the wrench 2 tab of the camera menu. This will try to fix any information with the CCD chip inside the camera that controls image processing. If you run this function and it still shows the red line then it may be that you need to send the camera in for repair to have that CCD chip replaced.

Sounds like it could be vignetting from either a lens hood or an accessory. Are you seeing this in all photos or flash only? If flash, sometimes a wide shot with a lens hood on will block the flash output and cause the described shadow line.
If it's just one pixel that's red, that's a common problem (sometimes called a "hot pixel") which can be addressed with the software that comes with the camera. If it's a group of pixels or a bar or line, then there is likely some major defect on the image sensor itself. If it's under warranty, you may want to contact Nikon support to see if they will do a warranty repair for you: http://www.nikonusa.com/Service-And-Support/index.page They will probably not do a repair if you are dealing with a hot pixel.
in this condition, the problem might be caused by: -material such as thin soft fabric, hair, or dust that entered and glued on your sensor, you can use a blower to bring it out of the body -the sensor was broken due to hard impact or fall down the solution is to contact your local Nikon service centre to open the body part or change the sensor, and to be frank, it will costs you expensively
if this red line is still on the picture when you open in the computer, I`m a fried you will need a new CCD. If the pictures are ok in the computer is probable some wire that connect the LCD are interrupted , or the LCD have some dead pixels.
Electronic shutter in lens mechanism got bad and you need to replace complete lens assembly of DSC-S500 camera.
Of course new lens assembly would cost more then camera worth so best option is to buy new camera.
If you have the images in your computer them click on the 'Add image to your post' instruction and follow the prompts.
But from what you tell me this appears to be a CCD problem and the camera should be returned to the vendor if under warranty or contact the Customer support at Nikon other wise. for the camera to be replaced
