I hate to say this, but you better look out or a new camera.
If it is a new camera, with warranty, just bring it back, but I think repairing this one will cost much more than it is worth.

SOURCE: Why are there vertical lines or bars on the monitor screen when I record a movie?

Recording a movie of a subject that is brightly lit by the sun or some other very bright light source can cause vertical lines or bars to appear in the image during playback. This is due to a CCD phenomenon called "smearing." Note that lines or bars appear in movie images only, but not in snapshots. Smearing does not indicate malfunction of the camera.

SOURCE: LCD/Recording Picture

I had this same exact thing happen to me while taking pictures at a wedding. Sadly this can only be fixed BY Canon and your camera has to be shipped out to them. It cost me $260. The first person to answer was right about the problem.... something with the mirror. The salesguy at the store (independant local retailer) tried to convince me to buy a NEW Rebel for twice the cost of the repair. Might be a better investment.

When i turn on my camera i get a e24 on the screen


In one of my canon manuals is says about E.. (see the little dots)

Camera malfunctioned. Turn off the power and turn on again, then re-shoot or play back. If the same message recurs frequentely, the camera may be damaged. Note down the error number [xx] and take the camera to a custumer support help desk. If this message happens immeadiately after you have taken a shot, the camera may not have shot the picture. Switch to play back mode and check whether the image was actually recorded.

Sorry if I can't help you more, but Canon does not give more information.

Goes from record mode to standby automatically


Wow my friend do you need Ghost Busters? er no this is mostly a case of the main switch being on lock, or the main IC going down on the panel in the cameras brain area, check the locks first, if it is the chip you will need to call your Sony repair man (He will love you) with summer coming he will be able to go on longer holiday, because that wont be a cheap mend sadly.
Number for help then is 01256 828828, now what you will do for cash for your holiday I simply do not know.
Take care, hope it gets sorted out okay?

Vertical lines while recording Canon zr100 camcorder


I'm positive the camera needs to be cleaned. The recording heads sound like they are dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there, whether it's new or not. Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. The tape actually rubs the recording heads so you only want to do it for a short time to avoid damage. Let me know how it goes.
