I also have the same problem! I absolutely love this camera but suddenly out of the blue I have stripy lines on the screen that look like you are looking through a venetian blind. I have contacted Fuji but they say it will cost £99 to repair or have offered £50 discount on any other camera. I just want my F460 working ok. Please, please can anyone help us?

this meens that your shutter or curtain infront of the sensor is getting stuck and not oppening completly i am not sure what the best solution is for this but it may be cheaper to buy a hole new camera rather then getting it fixed
Lines appear on your photo's because the shutter is either stuck or is not firing completely over the lens when you take a shot. You will either get overexposed pictures (white out) or these lines like it is taken through a blind.
The most common cause for this is moisture residue building up on the shutter leafs over a period of time.
An easy way to verify this is to use the video function. It should be perfectly fine as this function does not use the shutter. This will also eliminate the sensor as the cause of the problem.
I had posted a solution to "lines on photo's or over exposed photo's" on my tips page covering most digital cameras but just recently I noticed my whole page has been removed and I am waiting to hear why.
Basically, lines on photo's or over exposed pictures in daylight are due to the shutter not closing over the lens completely.
It is a mechanical fault due to dirt/ grease or moisture on the shutter leafs sticking them together.
I have the same problem, and upon looking into my problem, i recall reading that Sony had used crappy glue in which they attached the CCD to the inner guts of the camera, and when that deteriorates, which doesn't take very long, then your pictures will have lines through them.
I think i remember reading that Sony said they will replace all cameras within 2 years of their manufacture. Call Sony's troubleshooting and support and they may replace it for you.
Contact Nikon on thier website, they will send you a reply and a link for return service and fix it for free. This website is no help, they want you to subscribe to a service before they reveal any info.
Try this to isolate the problem.
Switch on the camera in auto and put it into full optical zoom. Now turn the camera to face you and angle it so that you can see into the lens without reflection. On full zoom the internal lens will be right up to the outer lens. Now press the button to take a picture. You should be able to see the shutter cover the inside lens and then open again. Did it completely cover the lens? It should do. If not then you will get an over exposed picture or a picture with lines across it.
