Question about HP Photosmart M425 Digital Camera
Hello - It's unfortunate, but yes, in that whatever the repair cost is it will be more than the worth of the camera which is currently selling (used) on Ebay for between $25-35. That is assuming the camera is no longer under any warranty.
I'm not in the advice business but I'd like you to know that you can purchase an 8-10 mega-pixel (yours is five mega-pixels) digital camera of equal quality with more features than the HP for between $60-100. Unless you're really in love with that particular camera I would give that some serious consideration.
Thanks for using Fix Ya - Hope this was helpful to you.

This is a common problem with these camera's. This is either faulty screen or a problem with CCD sensor.In both situations,repair is never recommended as buying a new camera would be cost effective as compared to getting this camera repaired. Try to look at previously saved video's or images, if you still see horizontal lines, it would confirm faulty screen unless if the saved video's or images are fine, and this happens only when you try to click a picture, this would confirm faulty CCD sensor.
I wish i could have a better solution.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
