If the lines are seen while you're looking at the picture before and after taking it, it's a CCD fault. If the lines show up only after taking the pictures, it's a broken shutter cable or stuck shutter blades inside the lens. They are hardware problems and I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. Both problems are considered hard to repair and it could get expensive, so I would recommend you getting another camera.
I hope you trust me, I know what I'm talking about.

Hope this helps!

How do I fix horizontal lines on the viewer and pictures of my Olympus SP-560 UZ


If you have both, lines on the display, and on the pictures, I'm afraid something is wring with the sensor, or with the connections to the sensor. That is if you have the same lines on every picture.
If you only have horizontal lines, when taking pictures of bright lights in a dark area, it is just a phenomena of the camera. In almost all digital camera's this can happen.

Black line in center of viewer and picture


Hello Jon, Does the same line appear on multiple photos ? If so there is a faulty CCD unit in your camera. Not good news.

A couple of thoughts:-

1) Check the resolution the camera is set to, it may, for some reason have been set to the lowest photo resolution.

2) Have a look on the Pentax web site, follow links to Support and or Downloads. There may be a firmware upgrade for your camera. There also may be a forum on the website where someone has had this problem before and resolved it.
