The viewfinder is failing, or it may be a bad flexiboard, or ribbon assy. The proof is that the pictures look okay, but the viewing is not proper.

If you want it serviced, you will have to send the camera to the Sony authorized service rep. They will be able to change the necessary parts and re-adjust as required.

What is the problem of my camera when you review the picture there is a horizontal line forming in the lcd screen,


I'm afraid when the line is visible on the computer to, when you view the pictures, your camera sensor is defect. Probably not wort the money to repair that. When the pictures, viewed on the computer look ok, the display of your camera is defect. Try to live with that one. A new camera could be cheaper than cost for a repair.

Photosmart M537 Camera, when I take pictures they show up as a ghost like picture in the view screen, with horizontal lines, but if I take the picture inside it comes out but not real clear.


Try adjusting the Contrast on the on screen menu because it sounds like either the exposire is set too high or if your pictures come out OK when you play them on a computer the contrast is too high.

Hope this helps

Can I get it repaired somewhere?


The lines are not your screen, you must get it repaired or get a new one. Just to make sure, Zoom into a picture and see if the lines stay where they are, if not then get it fixed

Are the green lines on the camera while viewing the picture or is it in the pictures once you have saved them on the computer.
