    When viewing previously taken pictures, can see only last one taken. Also, there is a bracket win 'IN' on the screen [IN]. I cannot find this in the manual.

SAMSUNG S1070 - When I take pictures, white lines appear on them. They don't appear on the screen when I am not taking a picture, and they do appear when I transfer them to my computer. I have tried...


How do outdoor pictures look when taken with the camera? If overexposed, first check that your camera is in automatic mode, and not some other manual exposure mode of the camera. Next, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

The pictures have horizontal lines through them. The veiw screen is fine. When you review or save them to the computer they show up whiter and with lines. Thanks ahead for any help.


If this doesn't apear on the print pictures taken directly from the SD card. It has something to do with the settings for the picture transferre on your computer.
Try and reset/adjust the settings within the transferre programe. I cannot tell you the eact steps for that since it will depend on the programe you're using. But it can usually be done right before transferring pics to the computer.

If helpful pls. recommend/rate me and or give me a review. TXS

Distorted/damaged pictures


Please check the image size (pixels x pixels) setting or the resolution (MP). Seems like the camera is shooting in low resolution. Have you used this memory card on a mobile phone or another camera? Format the memory card and try again.

White lines appearing on display after picture is taken


I have the same problem, and upon looking into my problem, i recall reading that Sony had used crappy glue in which they attached the CCD to the inner guts of the camera, and when that deteriorates, which doesn't take very long, then your pictures will have lines through them.

I think i remember reading that Sony said they will replace all cameras within 2 years of their manufacture. Call Sony's troubleshooting and support and they may replace it for you.

Hope i helped solve your problem.

Green lines


Due to vertical section failure horizontal line apprears. You did not mention about picture. Green horizontal line means with picture or without picture. With picture means there is some leakage. Without picture only singe horizontal line means vertical section totally not working. Particularly green horizontal line means maybe leads to jungle ic failure. Please mention your simptom clearly what you get and what you will not get both video and audio. It will be helpful to answer. Based on your question this is my small information.
