If in US or Canada, call 1-800-OK-CANON and tell them that you wish to have your camera evaluated for possible FREE repair under their "CCD Advisory". They should also offer free shipping of the camera.

Hallo i have problem with my Lumix DMC LX2 , the photo are with some line and are most overxpo. But when you see torugh the monitor focus and view are well. I think is the sensor ccd but i don't know...

I think it will be better to have your camera checked up with a technical support as even if you can open the spare will be hard to find , if the CCD is damaged. If the camera is kept off power for several days and the picture comes back to normal, then check on the electronic board for any leakages- faulty capacitors.
If not save this trouble to get estimate and confirm.

Will not take pictures has lines going thrugh the screen

There is a recall on these cameras for a faulty image sensor used on several models. Canon will fix it for free whether its still under warranty or not. See the Canon website for more info. I called the Tech Support line and they told me to send it back to them and they would repair it for free and pay the postage both ways as well, and I have had mine since 2003!!

I got a vertical line on my lcd screen

lines on an lcd screen means the screen itself is going bad, if the monitor is under warranty then get it replaced, otherwise get another one. Also to verify this, try another known working monitor on the computer and if the lines go away then you know for sure the monitor is bad, if the lines stay on both monitors then you know that the video card is bad.

Red, white, horizontal and vertical lines showing up in some of my prints

Send it in for a quote. It should cost the equivalent of $10 USD, more or less, wherever you are. No expert, however talented, can bring a broken sensor back to original shape.

Most likely no. You are probably going to have to send it in for repair or return it to the store.

Lines in every pictre ,

Many compact digitals (of all brands) use a Sony sensor and Sony had a bad batch go through and the sensor's contacts are failing.  If you are getting images corrupted with lines, bad/weird colour or severe noisy hash, you may well have a dud sensor.  Check the canon web site for a list of effected cameras and/or contact Canon service.
Canon is replacing effected sensors free of charge regardless of warranty status.

Blurred monitor

There's a Canon service advisory regarding possible malfunction of the CCD image sensor in your A75. Call their technical support line at 800-828-4040 (USA only) and a technician will determine if this could be your problem. If they suspect that your camera qualifies under the service advisory, they'll provide a prepaid UPS shipping label so you can send the camera in for evaluation / repair.
