Thanks for your support.
I solved my problem by dumping my Nikon Cool Pix 8700 and I bought another camera and It will never be NIKON for me again!

almost sure this is cause by flex circuit in the zoon lens that is damaged and need to be replaced. Almost always the problem of stripes in the picture is worst when you take pictures in full zoom mode because in this position of the lens the flex circuitis is fully streched. Thats all folks
This is not a solution , but only a work around. If you do at least 1/3 zoom on your lens before clicking a photo, these lines will not appear. But this not not a convenient way I agree. Also this surely means that the CCD is not the problem otherwise it would have never worked ( electronic parts cant simply dont start to work when you zoom ringht ? ). Surely Nikon is fixing the issue, but cheating the customers by charging for a part is not defective in the first place
I have contacted nikon servicing centre and they requested to see the camera, they didn't tell me what the fault was but they managed to fix it they charged me £ 190 but at least I have my camera back and is working fine...
The shutter on your camera has become stuck open. This causes the lines across your pictures. If you take the camera outside or shoot in bright lighting conditions the pictures will come out over exposed. The fix for this problem requires complete disassembly of the camera to access the shutter assembly inside the lens. It is a fairly common issue due to the fact that the shutter is such a delicate component. Check with your manufacturer for warranty support or recalls. If they are unable to help you for free, there are repair providers which you can find online who will repair your camera for a reasonable rate.

Do the pictures have lines across them as well as being blurry?
If you see the lines then your shutter is stuck open and it will require repair. The shutter has to close for the image sensor to properly record the image.
If they have no abnormal lines on them, are they "out of focus" blurry or is it more of a streaked motion blur kind of thing?
If you do need to get the camera repaired you should check with your manufacturer for any recalls or technical bulletins, and see if they will service your camera under warranty. If not there are a number of repair facilitys available on the internet who generally have better rates than out-of-warranty service at the factory.
