Hello, 3 greens lines appeared on the control screen of my D200 after a year of good service. This is only on control screen and those are not on the pictures. Do you know how to fix it. I am running the V2 firmware.

I think this person means the "control panel".
I agree with JoelB. I would just live with it till it gets worse to the point you can't stand it or it dies. Much of the information is displayed in the viewfinder or you can check your setting on the monitor (you could also reset the camera to the default settings) if you are unable to tell what your settings are from the control panel.
If you are in a position where you cannot risk it not providing information at a critical moment, then get Nikon to fix it now! They have a good, professional repair facility. I would not let anyone else handle it. Send it directly to Nikon's repair facility in NY. I had my D100 repaired and firmware updated by them. Also, use the Nikonian's forum, rather than this....for help.

A little more detail would be helpful in diagnosing your problem. Are the lines vertical or horizontal? Do they run the length or width of the screen or just a portion?
If by "control screen" you refer to the LCD monitor on the back, then it sounds as if it may be failing and needs replacement. Alternatively you can just live with it unless it gets worse (or you're under warranty).

I have had a Samsung s630 for a couple of years now and it has worked great. All of a sudden the pictures on the screen are looking all washed out with a green tint and appears to have lines through it. ...

If teh photos on the pc still look good the screen is damaged or at least to flatcable from the screen to the camerabody.

If the foto;s on the laptop and the screen look alike then you might try to clean the chip inside the camera. Thats a delicate job and you might let the delaer do it for you.

cost about 50 bucks

Pls let me know if it worked

I have a kodak easyshare cd82 blue camera it is 6 months old it was working fine until a couple of weeks again i got it out the case turned it on and the screen was white with green cracked like lines on...

All devices including digital cameras are protected by a 1 year warranty. The green cracked line indicates a hardware problem, and since the camera is on its 6th month, it is still covered by warranty. You should take it to a Kodak authorized service center (not to the store you purchased the camera) to avail the warranty.You just need to bring the purchase receipt.

My connon powershot S500 has a dark haze or blur on have the the view screen and it is green

It appears that the image sensor (CCD) has stopped functioning. There is no fix for the part, only repair, and replacement of the part. If you perform an internet search, type in "bad CCD purple images", you should get several sites with the information in detail. Here's a link to some info also:

Big Problem

There is a no fix for a user- this is a general failure. As it is a now 3 years old I doubt the manufacturer will offer much in the way of help - but you could try - why not? But at the end of the line - time to treat yourself to a new camera.

Fuji m603/screen is green with lines at top

This is a sign of age. A loose connector perhaps on the screen. If it still taking good pictures then live with it. You could try a repair shop- but the likely cost will be well on the way to its replacements price I would think.
