After keeping my s7000 in its bag for awhile I decided to pop some freshly recharged batteries into it and get a few shots of the stormfront moving in.
I noticed that ALL my shots were coming out white. Messing with whitebalance and exposure/shutter settings I tried again but I was getting the same result no mater what I did.
I tried video mode and that worked fine. So it seems that the ccd is not fully damaged. Buht any other mose results on an all white image with a strip of black.
Help me, Please.

1)teh batteries are not the right typ use or alkaline or only NIMH 2) if shooting a cold area, keep the batteries warm by placing them in a inner pocket, until you ready to use them 3) battery terminal are diry, wipe them very well, with cloth and ethylic alcohol to 70% 4)the batteries have not been used for over a year. God bless you
what is your question? Do you charge batteries before the camera dies? Yes, you can if you are using Ni-MH batteries. these are the only rechargeable batteries recommended for this camera. I would not leave them on the charger full time just when they need it and to freshen them up if they have been sitting awhile. The old rule use to be that you should run your batteries down once in a while, this is not true anymore. Batteries have changed since than. With a camera like you have I would recommend you keep a spare set or two of alkalines with you. this gives you a nice backup for when those batteries run down on you. If your camera is very good on batteries and you only take a few pictures now and than alkalines may work better for you. I use to have a Canon A70 that used the same batteries. It would at least 300 pictures off a set of batteries. For me rechargeable batteries were a waste, depends on the camera and your usage.
Hi. From past experience I would say that these symptoms suggest the early stages of CCD failure. It usually starts with lines etc as you describe and progresses into wavy, blurry pictures or partial pictures and eventually the ccd just goes black. If it is CCD failure, the camera will usually still work when viewing pics that are already on the card.
Chargeable batteries usually last for a year or two. Alkaline batteries should only be expected to last for around a dozen shots (as such, NEVER rely on alkaline batteries). Recommend buying another set of NiMH rechargeables. Make sure you get 2500 mah or better power rating (look on the package).
Is it rechargable batteries (orignal for the camera), or are you using standard batteries? (AA/RC6 kind of batteries)
If you use AA batteries (or similar) make sure you use alkaline batteries of a good brand. Cheap batteries ofteh don't have the power to run digital cameras. Especially using the LCD screen drains the batteries.
If you have a new rechargable battery and it last only a short time see if using it and recharging it a few times helps the bettery "getting into it". If not, your camera may need repairs.
I've been having problems with the batteries and the camera refusing to start even with fresh batteries. I bought loads of new rechargable batteries and have finally found some that work. Duracell rechargables. Theyr'e brilliant and keep their charge for ages despite continuous use of the camera! Last summer I managed to take 975 photos before the batteries finally decided to give up!
