Depending on whats inside your lens it is likely to be either:
1) The light filter has jammed or the ribbon connecting it has broken.
2) solenoid for the apperture shutters has jammed or lost power.
I fix Fuji's and Samsung's mainly so couldn't say for certain exactly.

How do I fix horizontal lines on the viewer and pictures of my Olympus SP-560 UZ


If you have both, lines on the display, and on the pictures, I'm afraid something is wring with the sensor, or with the connections to the sensor. That is if you have the same lines on every picture.
If you only have horizontal lines, when taking pictures of bright lights in a dark area, it is just a phenomena of the camera. In almost all digital camera's this can happen.

Hi, my Panasonic Lumix DMS-TZ2 is making horizontal lines over the pictures that I take. What is the cause of that?


Not sure it is on every picture you take, but digital cameras doe have problems with bright lights in a dark environment. From such a light bright lines can go horizontal. If in normal light, your camera does not have the problem, I guess you now have an explanation.

Photos come with horizontal stripes and too bright


Hello naushed,

I had the same issue with the white horizontal lines with myCanon Powershot series camera too. When taking pictures, I get the horizontal lines. In daylight, I almost cannot see the pictures because it gives me very bright output. In darker areas, the picture can still be toleratedbut white lines are still there. Although when I am taking a video,the quality is good.

I was able to read that there is one part insidethe camera's mechanism that is faulty. Its a CCD problem. You should bring this to a CanonAuthorized service center and they should replace and fix the faultypart, free of charge. I got my Camera fixed for FREE! I was able to do macro shots again.Trust me and go to canon. What I did is to print this advisory fromcanon itself. And show it to them.
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=8288&keycode=2112&id=29819

As part of their advisory:

"Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon willrepair, free of charge, the products listed above exhibiting theabove-mentioned malfunction if Canon determines that the malfunction iscaused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost ofshipping and handling in connection with this repair.
"

Hope this helps.

The problem with Canon PowerSHot S60 Camera.


Your image sensor might be faulty. It is what connects your LCD and the picture in the issue of the horizontal lines. have it checked. Try checking your aperture too.

Dropped my casio exilim ex-z85a camera and now when I take pictures, there are light horizontal striped lines running through the entire image


Hi,
By dropping the camera you have caused some shock damage to the LED display so you will no doubt have get it repaired.
Saying that, if you copy the pictures to a computer you may find that the pictures are fine.

Overexposure and horizontal-striped image


Hi!
No, it's not a software problem. The problem is that the shutter doesn't work so it can't control the amount of light taken so the pictures are very bright with horizontal lines. There are usualy two causes - a broken shutter cable inside the lens or the shuuter blades are stuck - may happen if the lens get wet or something adhesive gets in it. It's a hardware problem so I suggest you contact local Canon or other camera service center. It is considered a hard repair so it could get expensive. I don't think it's worth it, so I would suggest you get another camera.

Hope this helps!

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.

Image looks with white verital striped lines in playback mode


Mine had the same problem (except the stripes are horizontal).  I sent it to Canon and sure enough it is the CCD problem that many of these have.  The good news is that it is covered under a recall and Canon will fix it free, including the shipping.

Very Bright Outdoor Photos with lines


The shutter is stuck. The electronic "noise" created by the solenoid trying to move the shutter blades causes the lines on your pictures. The bright outdoor pictures is due to the fact that the shutter is jammed open. You can try tapping the camera on the sides and bottom. This may jar the baldes loose. Failing that, you will have to find a shop that can obtain a replacement lens assembly for your camera.
