    Sometimes,though, when uploaded to the internet,the lines disapear. but not always. and rotating the pictures makes the lines fade a little. but thats it.

    I have changed the batteries, several times and purchased a new sd card. Everytime I take a picture everything looks fine through the view finder but then when I go to playback there are lines through every picture. I do notice that when I use the movie selection the pictures are clear and fine.

    I have the same problem. The picture looks fine through the view finder but when we look at it through play back it has lines going through it. Using the movie option works fine.

    I'm having the same exact problem with mine but what I don't understand is that it's never been dropped and it started like the 8th month I had it! I couldn't find the box for the warranty and now it's past a year old so it's void anyways!

Ok, my GE A730 7.0 MP was connecting perfectly with my pc, uploaded pics fine. Now, all of a sudden, it cannot find my camera. What's up with that? Help please.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I have a ge a730 digital camera i am trying to

Once you erase or "clean up" your camera files, they are gone, and you can't get them back. They are not like CD disks or computers hard drives. Always copy or move important pictures to your computer before you clean up or format the disk in the camera, or the internal memory. Wish I had better news.

Why are there lines on my picture?

It has a shutter problem. The damage could be some dust particles between the shutter blades or the flex connector broken. Cleaning or otherwise replacement of lens unit will be the solution. It will be the camera technician's job.

Distorted Viewfinder Only In PIcture Mode

Yes, You are correct, it does not seem to be problem with the CCD. Insted it seems to be with shutter control or apparture control mechanism of the camera. Normaly there is one single cable carring signal to the shutter blade mechanism and the diaphram control. If this cable is damaged it shows the same symptoms as you have described in your mail. Get in touch with an expert camera repairer.
