    My camera is having the same problem! The first time it did this, the lines went away after turning it off then on a few times. This time however, it looks like the lines are here are stay. Any suggestions?

    My camera is having the same problem! i don't think I have ever dropped it or done anything else to harm it. The first time the lines appeared, they vanished after turning it on and off a few times. But, three days later, they were back! If you could give me any advice, it would be AMAZING!

    I have the same problem. i purchased camera in Dec 2007.
    Wot i observed is that, while taking a pic in ext light / day light with flash on, there are white lines appearing in the pic. but if the same pic is clicked in dark, then there are no lines appearing on the screen, pic is perfectly alright. Total no of white lines increase with the intensity of ext light. lesser the ext light, fewer is the no of lines on the screen.
    Can someone suggest the cost of changing the ccd & where can i get it repaired?
    Also, how is the resetting in the camera be done?

It also can be the lens or mainboard. I have replaced ccd with lines in the pics with a good ccd from another camera,with same result. I replaced the lens with the ccd in question and camera worked fine

It is a bad ccd it need to be replaced some time you can get lucky by resetting the camera in the setup menu.When you take a picture the image is transmitted throught the ccd and translates the image to the cameras5.gif memory5.gif. It can be fixed. Or you can upgraded. Some places might offer a trade in value on your camera even if it is broke. end of Quote: i hade the same problem this guy knows the way of the lcd's

With my Sony Cybershot DSC S700 the pictures come through very light with lines going through the picture. Can't figure out how to get rid of the lines

Probably a bad sensor in the camera. Most likely, you aren't going to be able to correct this issue yourself. You should probalby call Sony.

I have a sony cyber shot DSC-S700 camera, I can take photos but when I want to download them on my pc there is no photos there to view but I still can view them on the camera itself

Pictures are saved into folders on the camera - 101, 102, 103, etc. When accessing the camera from the computer, be sure you are looking in the folder on the camera where the pictures are.
