To avoid to much guessing, I think you should try to reset the camera. How to do that is on page 24 and 25 of the manual. With this you exclude things that can go wrong, because of a wrong scene setting or white balance or whatever. After you did the reset in the shooting mode, everything is in automatic again. Then again try to shoot a picture.

It could be the display is giving up. after a few years you can't expect it would work as new. So even if you still see lines on the display, shoot some pictures and put them on the computer. There view the results.
If the pictures are good but the lines are still on the display, try to live with that. Repairs will cost more than a brand new camera of a better quality. If the lines are in the picture, the sensor is defect and I think you should start saving for a new camera. Although new point and shoots can be bought around a 100 dollar. But even some smart phones now can take pictures that should be as goos as the ones that came from your Olympus when it was brand new.
If you can't find the manual, the link here will download it for you:

Model LN52A550P3FXZA. Video and audio cycle on and off every 30 seconds or so. When picture switches off, the screen is filled with multi-color horizontal lines.


It is a common problem for this model, the problem is the main board. There are 2 Tantalum capacitors (C102 & C131) 47MF/10V, 1 Passive Voltage regulator KIA7805AF (IC300), 1 Step-Down Power Conveter IC MP2363DN (IC101) need to be replaced. If you do not have soldering skills, just order a new board.

The screen color is distorted


Check your VGA cable, if they are constantly plugged in and out, a pin may be damaged. Also try wiggling the cable at each end, ie from the laptop and the computer, I have had problems with the VGA output on the laptop. If this doesn't correct the problem it will probably be a polarisor lens, if so it will probably cost more than a new replacement projector. I recently purchased NEC NP115 for just over £200.

Good luck
