    I suffer the same problem. All object appearing in vertical lines, no focus. Old pictures on the memory stick look fine.Hence no problem with the display. Tried all menu settings, no solution. It seems the cause is electronicial. Look at the picture.

    Any other idea?

    My pictures look similarto the one posted out here, I cannot see the image in the display section, it has red hues all over it, and while blindly taking the pic, the images are blury with yellow and green boundary on them. Previous taken pics look Ok in the display window. This just happened to me in a snap, the two pics I took just a few secs ahead are just fine, then all of a sudden the display on the screen is all messed up.

That certainly looks like the problem with the sensor. You should call your Sony Repair Centre and they will ask for your serial number. If it falls in the affected range, Sony should repair your camera free of charge.

I dropped my Kodak Easyshare M530

you would have to take the camera apart and probably replace the the screen or reattach the cables for a better connection.

Somewhere in the menu there should be a setting that restores factory defaults. Scroll thru the menu items and look for default settings, I believe these are in the same menu that has your formatting options. I hope you have the manual so you can look thru and see what needs to be done. You might also take time to just scroll thru the menu's and see what options are available and maybe you can tell what has been changed or what the options for each menu item are so you can decide wheter you want that selection or make a change there. If you know af a good camera shop or retailer they may be able to help you with this , most places are willing to help if it means getting a new customer in their doors!

Distorted/damaged pictures

Please check the image size (pixels x pixels) setting or the resolution (MP). Seems like the camera is shooting in low resolution. Have you used this memory card on a mobile phone or another camera? Format the memory card and try again.

Screen has lines

Most likely youve damage the lcd screen either by dropping it even though you didnt, but that would be the only cause this problem, line on a lcd screen are usually cause by a broken power current thru screen or a cracked lcd screen maybe it was defective in the first time. I dont know, but line are usually means no power or no information going thru screen.

need to be replaced.

Intalling camera software.

Greetings Shayy,

Generally screen resolution refers to your computers resolution which is controlled via the control panel of your computer. I would try fiddling with other screen resolutions to see if this helps. This will cause items on your computer to either be larger or smaller than you are used to, but you might find you like it better.

You would go to control panel>display>settings, to adjust this.

I hope this helps.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

I have lines on the image when I look thru the eye piece

which camera is it, is the eye piece a lcd screen or optical?

if the pictures come out ok on the PC it sounds like a faulty screen, If the camera is still under warranty it should be covered if not unless its an expensive camera its probably best to live with it as a repair would be quite pricey

if the pictures have lines on when displayed on the PC its a main board or CCD fault, both expensive.

Lines through Photos

I had a similar problem with a Casio and they directed me thru some exercises and the one that worked was removing the battery and holding down the "on" or maybe it was the "shutter" button for one FULL minute. Worked fine after reinserting the battery and taking some pictures.
