    When i take pictures i can see horizontal lines in the screen and all the colours seems to be whiter. There is no problems with the screen when i look at it or when im making videos, only when i take pictures.

    Just got the same problem too.. was searching the web and came to this site.. seem like have to send in for repair already?

  • Jon11 May 19, 2008

    My Pentax Optio M10 has these lines now as well on every picture I take. I was shaking the camera a bit prior to taking a picture and the lines have been there ever since, reducing the quality of subsequent photos. It sounds like this is a fairly common problem, but I see no solutions on this site. I guess I'll keep searching.

Horizontal lines across photo images - video is ok


Hi there:
The only time I have seen horizontal lines in the pictures, it was a prelude to the CCD sensor failing. Sounds like a CCD sensor problem.If the CCD sensor is causing the problem, it will get worse soon. Usually the next thing to happen is that the colors will shift toward pink.

I suggest you phone Panasonic support and tell them the problem and that you suspect the CCD.Ask for a repair quote for a CCD replacement.If the product is under warranty.


In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

Horizontal lines on the screen after the picture is taken


Remove the Battery from the Camera then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the Battery pack and turn on the Camera and reset it to the original factory settings by selecting the "Initialize" option under Setup1.

If the issue persists then service will be required.

Horizontal LINES


If you are getting fine horizontal lines thet means the picture is over exposing. most probably the apparture or the shutter blade mechanism is not working fine. needs repairs.
