So is this something we are going to have to deal with -- to me Olympus was always the top of the line in cameras. My Olympus 330 infinity zoom is still working after 20 years. This thing that I have now the FE-210 -- barely lasted 6 months before it started falling apart. I am very disappointed in this product. It was money wasted, and I think I will have to advise my friends and colleagues not to purchase any of the newly minted Olympus cameras in the future. I expect higher standards with higher technology -- but did not get it. Wish I could get my money back on this lemon of a camera.

Hi there: Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.
A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.
When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter. 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.
