Have you tried display the photos on another PC? (Or you can try to display the photos to you TV)
If the problem still exists, then the problem is likely to be with your camera.

If the pink line only appears on your PC, then this is likely to be some software/hardware problem of your PC/Monitor.

The LCD-screen seems to work normal. But when we take a picture (camera-mode normal and record-mode normal) the result is overlighted and misty and full of horizontal lines. In video mode the camera works...

Try to use a different setting like a bright light setting to see if the apeture is closed down further and brings back focus.
the problem is the auto focus which can be going stray and is not setting right.So take time to shoot with the shutter button down to half to allow it to focus and then once the indication of the focus has confirmed to click.
If not contact Sony service for help.

Your camera likely needs a new CCD imaging sensor. It is a cute little thing and is very expensive to replace. I've seen deals to repair any digital camera on eBay and I would check for a local repair person in your area. You can use the search on this site to see who might be close by. I have an A310 doing the same thing.

Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics

It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.

Screen is perfect but after clicking photos have green patches and horizontal lines

Providing the images remain OK - Do They? It is best to ignore the problem, because there is no repair solution. You could get on the HP Technical Support Team to see what they have to say - this may be a manufacturing fault.
