Are the menus displaying correctly on top of the blurred lines? If so then your camera has suffered a CCD (image capture chip) failure.

There is nothing you have done to cause it and nothing you could have done to prevent it; it's one of the most common causes of terminal failure on digital cameras when they get older. There's also nothing you can do to repair it; the camera is effectively just scrap as repair costs will far exceed the cost of replacing the camera.

Your camera was fitted with the now infamous Sony 5MP CCD; this was fitted to a huge number of makes and models and due to a production error far too many of them failed prematurely. As a result, the manufacturers affected arranged for a soft recall in which any owners who had the failure and then complained about it were offered free repairs. For almost all affected cameras the scheme ended last September and for a handful it continues until the end of this month. The scheme ended as the affected models were by then past their design life expectancy of around 5 years and so any further failures could not be considered to be premature. Your camera will now be around 6 years old so it's lasted really well.

The processes which caused so many ccd's to fail early are now well understood and the design and manufacturing processes have now improved, but it's still a fact that these sensors can and do fail prematurely, regardless of the original manufacturer. Digital cameras simply don't last anywhere near as long as many 35mm film cameras.

If your menus are not displaying correctly, and if images are being captured correctly on the memory card then all that's happened is that the LCD screen has failed. It is replaceable but the cost will still exceed your camera value; you'll also have the CCD failure issue just waiting to strike without warning: it's not a case of "if?", but merely "when?" On balance I'd strongly advise that you don't invest any more money which could instead go towards the cost of a new model.

Although your only fix is to replace your camera, I hope that you've still found my reply to be informative and useful. Please take a moment to rate my answer in return for the free advice.
