Fault when taking pictures

I have a samsung i70 digital camera. It seems to take pictures with fuzzy horizontal lines. I have been told that this is a fault but im ot sure what to do! My girlfriend gave me the camera for christmas but she bought it off e-bay. The seller did not say that there was a fault and will not supple any return address. I was hoping i can still use the 2 year warrenty for repair? thanks for any help.

Re: fault when taking pictures

If you go to this link you should be able to check to see when and if the camera was registered and see if there is a warranty available.  also the majority of companies will replace and/or fix the problem for free or a minor expense even outside the warranty period if you send it to them.  i have done this with a couple of different cameras and had them fixed and replaced with no problems.  good luck.

My camera seems to short out and there are horizontal lines in the pictures.

get new batteries, if recharging your current batteries does not work (to stop it shorting out).

reduce your shutter exposure, by changing to Manual Mode (M), selecting +/-, and then the left button (flash) around the Menu OK button. Mine works fine at 1s shutter speed, but was showing horizontal lines before that ...
