There's a few things you can try to narrow down where the problem might lie. One thing you don't mention is if the green line is on the actual image, or only shows up on the LCD monitor.

If the line is in the actual image after transferring it to your computer, try formatting the memory card in the camera, or try a different card to see if the problem persists. If it only shows on the LCD, count yourself lucky because you can continue to use your camera, albeit with an annoyance to deal with.

However, it sounds to me as though you've got either a dead or hot pixel on the CCD which will cause problems in the adjacent pixels creating a "line". Take a look at this page and this page. Unfortunately, you will most likely need to send it in to Nikon for repairs.

I have a Mitsubishi WD-62525. In general the picture is great from all sources (cable, component, and hdmi). However, there occasionally are very thin, horizontal lines that flicker across the screen....

I have seen this problem before. It is usually caused by a malfunctioning color wheel. Replacing it should resolve the problem. Let me know if you wish to fix it yourself so that I can find you a replacement.

I have recently noticed a very thin vertical line (primarily red) in the photos taken with my D70. Can you tell me the cause and the cure?

Cause - faulty CCD imager.
Cure - imager replacement.
It can be done only by Nikon authorized service center and if you're out of warranty - it will be expensive.

Sorry for the bad news.

Unable to record images

This appears to be a processor problem There is I am afraid no user remedy. Depending on the age of the camera, it is possible that it has been subject to a recall because of defective CCD's- Now get onto Nikon customer support and they will advise you accordingly. They may price a repair - which will be truly astronomical if they do ,so be ready for it.

Television has no picture

That TV uses the PTK195 chassis, and the fact that you see only a thin line for each color near the bottom of the screen tells me your vertical output IC has stopped working, and is putting a small DC voltage across the yokes. I have seen this caused by a defective vertical output IC and I have also seen vertical problems caused by a small CRT coolant leak which drips onto the main board near the vertical output IC. If you do not have experience servicing the PTK195 chassis than have a qualified tech handle it for you.

CoolPix 5700's have a common image sensor failure. Check with Nikon for recalls, this may be the cause of your issue. Alternatively the shutter may be stuck open, causing too much light to reach the sensor and causing over exposure as well as lines across the image. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
