Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F88 screen problem

When I turn on the camera, the screen is mostly black with some unintelligible stripes of color here and there. I take a picture, and the image looks smudged, as if I have applied some photoshop effects to it - like wind, or I am not sure exactly what the effects are called. Does anyone have any idea what has happened and how I can fix it?

    I bought two sony cyber-shots for my twin daughters. The cameras are under warrenty and less than 8 months old. Ithought great and mailed them to sony (which happens to be precision camera repair). I was told that the camera was abused and would not be covered under warrenty! Try to call sony to explain that the camera was not abused and its a dead end!

    My daughters took very good care of this camera I thin it is poor design my daugther did use the touch screen a lot to manipulate the pictures but she always used the touch device on the camera strap. Let me know if you have this problem and lets start a class actio law suit! E mail 1 ray.steve@mchsi.com.
