Red, white, horizontal and vertical lines showing up in some of my prints
I noticed that in some of my photos, there are either vertical or horizontal red lines, accross the photo. I have a Nikon D80 with attached lense. This has been hapening since I bought the camera a year ago. I called Nikon Technical Support today and I was told I may have to send the product back to them. (I have to pay the shipping) which I am sure will be very expensive, and I can't afford to be without a camera. If anyone knows what the problem may be and if it is an easy problem to fix, please, let me know.

Horizontal may not be due to the CCD sensor. It can be due to the lens
itself. I swap lens from a non-working camera to replace the one with
horizontal lines. I found out that I was able to get the camera to work
to take great pictures.
If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.
Are the vertical lines on the images when you view them on screen, or only after you print them on a laser printer of some kind. If the lines are on screen, your issue is in the device sensor. If the lines are on printed images, try aligning your print heads (use your printer utilities whenever you replace an ink cartridge), or take the images to a kiosk (Kodak and others have those at verious retail outlets). Good luck! DigiChick
It is the shutter (or at least it was for me) I found a simple test here: http://www.mydc.com.tw/repair/knowledge_en/casio-exilim-ex-s600-overexposure-t17.html I repaired it myself, but it took me a whole afternoon and lots of patience. The hard part is taking the camera apart, once I got to the shutter I just activated it manually so to dislodge any pieces that might have gotten jammed, then placed it back together again and it worked! :). It's really hard to take apart, it's like a puzzle sometimes, to find which screws are keeping it together. I also had a bit of hard time when it came to put the zoom back together again. But I guess it beats throwing the camera away. I'm still puzzled on how the CCD works so that an overexposure would make horizontal overexposed lines, but everything points to that. Fixed shutter, lines be gone.
The scren is just displaying the input from the CCD (Digital Sensor that actually takes the
picture).. If The pictures were fine, but the screen was funky if you could live with it then there wouldn't be a problem.
Since it's on both the screen AND on your photos it points to there
being a fault with the CCD
Given the age of the camera, the cost of a repair I'm afraid it's time for a new camera. there's nothing you can do to fix this yourself.
