Re: many colors appear

I don't know the C-720 specifically but many Olympus digicams have special effect settings and you may have inadvertently switched one of them on. If you have the manual, look through that for information on where in the camera menu such settings are found & then check them. Failing that, there is a menu item to reset the camera to Factory Defaults - see if that helps.

Turn on the camera
Pull the lens at maximum zoom
Turn off the flash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shoot the picture - look into the lens.

If no motion picture shutters in the lens:
1. Faulty flex cable shutter
2. Faulty valve solenoids
Requires repair of the shutter assembly in the lens

If you saw the shutter and blurry pictures as paint - matrix defective - Replace the camera matrix.

Image has lines and pink in colour

This maybe two problems, the pink color hue in the picture and lines from lens shutter problems. Your LCD is still good. You have to replace motherboard and lens.

Sony Cybershot DSC-S500 bad photo resolution problem

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.

Error 99 in Canon EOS 350 D

Try the following diagnosis steps, in this exact order. This will isolate the cause of the issue: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

We've got a church tv camera that records picture so that predominantly neon green and pink appear on the recordings. The neon almost looks like fire. What should we be looking at besides the normal...

You leave out too much information. What kind of camera (CCTV, IR, BW/Color, handheld, web cam, etc). Name/Brand/Model ? What are you trying to do? Security? Film your service? Broadcast via internet? What kind of monitor are you using and how do you know it is a known good monitor?

Your information is too vague so I can only give you a vague, potential answer;

potential is high that the actual chip lense itself is at fault, potential fault within chroma/color circuitry or if it is an older camera, out of adjustment and if very old, tube is no longer viable.

Additional thoughts: EMI shield malfunction on the PCB (highly rare).
