the place to go is the Samsung Tech Support team This is not a 'self' fixable problem# It is a firmware fault which may be fixable by Samsung Free or for a modest charge - depends on the age of the camera. I the charge is not modest then the next stop is a new camera

Afraid I tried that already, I have tried everything. It's certainly a mechanical fault.
Luckily I found I have a two year guarantee and it was bought 25/06/06 so I'm just in time to send it off! Found the documents two days ago. Phew...

Hello, the other two replies are good answers, but it could also be the shutter magnet causing interferance with the picture creating lots of tiny lines accross the picture and causing the picture to be grossly overexposed.
In Australia these cameras do not have a ccd recall issue and in our workshop we have not had to replace any CCD's on these particular cameras.
Lots of lenses though (as the shutter is not avalible seperate) with similar problems to as you have described.
Sorry for the bad news.

You can try a different memory card, but I don't think the problem is memory card, if pictures look scrambled, and colors and brightness are not uniform, that is either a problem with CCD sensor (optic sensor that takes the picture), or logic board.
In either case, this is not an easy repair.
Reset the camera to default settings from camera menu, and try a different memory card, but the camera will probably need to be sent in for repairs.

This is electronic shutter problem that is the reason you get blinder effect/ noise on picture. Electronic shutter is located in lens mechanism and lens assembly will be replaced to solve the issue. Nearest Samsung service center or local camera repair shop will help you to replace lens assembly.
