Question about Pentax Optio M20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White lines across captured image

Hi - I have a Pentax Optio M20 and just recently, whenever I take a picture, the image comes out with white lines across it. When you look through the viewfinder, or record a video the lines aren't there. Any idea what is wrong?

No. The M20 is designed to store images (and videos) to memory, not to stream live video to another device.

PENTAX Optio 60

If properly captured pictures can be played back fine ( quality is ok ) but images look 'noisy' i.e. color and resolution not what it should be then your camera has a faulty CCD sensor. Ask Pentax if they do this model with this problem free of charge ( most manufacturers repair CCD problems free of charge ).
