Those white lines should not be there and it indicates that something is wrong with the electronics of the camera when shooting video.
Take out the memory chip and play it back video on a computer. If it plays back fine on computer then the playback camera circuits are fubar. If also bad on computer then the anomaly is in the record section of camera.
Repairing those cameras since they are small and the parts are proprietary is an expensive proposition that you would only entertain if the camera was initially a very expensive one. Repairs on less expensive units are simply not cost effective.
There is two ways to view your "taking picture" with the LCD and with the viewfinder, you can shut the LCD off to save battery power and use the viewfinder and that is what I think has happened. a touch of the DISP button and it will switch from the LCD to the viewfinder. here is a diagram
With you saying the LCD is working for functions but not for taking pictures this is what I suspect is the problem.
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 camera is a wonderful Kodak product and takes beautiful 8.5 Megapixel photographs. When you save the pictures to an SD card, you must at some point remove them digitally from the card. Either by linking it to the USB cable and going from there to your PC, OR by removing the SD card from the camera and inserting it into an SD card slot in your computer, printer, or card reader. Occasionally the card readers such as the ones in your PC, printer, or card reader devices do not connect properly and will only transfer part of the data, resulting in pink ugly lined photographs. This problem can be fixed by using the USB cable instead of the built in card readers in your other devices.
If you're having like a bright picture with venetian blinds, you could try the steps below:
POWER RESET: - Turn off camera - Remove batteries for a minute - Return batteries - Turn on camera
MASTER RESET - Turn on camera - Press MENU button - Scroll to the right until you see SETUP - Scroll down and look for RESET - Press right button so you could see YES or NO - Select YES - Press MENU button - Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed
* If it still does not work, call the Manufacturer so they could tell you how to send camera for repair.
I also have the same problem! I absolutely love this camera but suddenly out of the blue I have stripy lines on the screen that look like you are looking through a venetian blind. I have contacted Fuji but they say it will cost £99 to repair or have offered £50 discount on any other camera. I just want my F460 working ok. Please, please can anyone help us?
Like all point and shoot cameras, PhotoPC's viewfinder is not 100 percent accurate and will slightly magnify the subject. The actual picture will always appear to have been taken further away than what the user views through the viewfinder.
