Question about Olympus Camedia C-4000 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lines, blurry not sure what is going on.

I am not sure how to ask for help with this so bare with me here. When I turn my camera on, no problems, when I look into the screen it shows these lines moving with different colors and such. When you snap the picture the lines are there and it just looks like a really bad photo, can't really see the object you just shot. Can anyone help me?? I thought it was just the viewfinder but it isn't when I upload the photo it is still out of wack.

Re: Lines, blurry not sure what is going on.

Sounds like a bad CCD, try shooting in B/W to see if it helps.

If the camera is brand new, don't mess about with it, you could invalidate the warranty.

Take it back to the vendor and ask them to demonstrate it to your satisfaction. If he can't do that, request a replacement or refund under warranty.
