    A friend of mine dropped my camera and it sounds exactly like your problem, little lines and looks fuzzy!! Did you manage to get your fixed? I thought I would probably have to buy a new camera, knowing my luck. I have found that if you tap the camera before you take a photo it seems to work properly, not too clever I know.

    Hi, I had this problem when my friend dropped my camera, I took it to a shop and it was gonna cost about £85 to fix it, its the shutter... not really worth it for me so I had to buy a new one.

Mine did the same thing and after reading the best answer i decided to drop the camera again and try to unstick the shutter so i just turned my camera on and dropped it about 4 ft on to the floor and it worked just fine also if you look at the lens on the camera you can tell if the shutter is stuck because it should be a circle shape.  This really did work for me even though it sounds crazy

What you describe is the symptom of a stuck shutter. The shutter is inside the lens and must close in order for the image sensor to properly record the image. Yours is stuck open, and that is why you see the lines across your images. When a stuck shutter results from an impact it usually requires full disassembly and manual re-setting of the delicate shutter blades. This problem would require professional repair. Unfortunately damage from an impact is not covered by your factory warranty. You can find good repair services on the internet who can service your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

I accidently dropped my HP G71-340US notebook laptop approximately 2 feet hitting the hardwood floor. It was closed and hit the front corner. It sill works fine except all pictures have a grainy, swirling...

you have probably damaged the screen itself, try using it connected to an external monitor, if you have a good picture then your screen needs replacing

Wont turn on

It seems as though you broke the camera through the accidental dropping on the floor. I can imagine that your parents may be upset, as it seems you and they are are responsible for the damage. You just need to ask the owner what they would like you to do to make things right. Digital cameras are not expensive these days, and you should be able to get a replacement for less than $150 or so. You should get them another Sony, and pick one with a megapixel rating that is at least as high as the one you broke.

If you are lucky, they may say that it was old anyway, and that they were going to buy another soon. (And not ask you to replace it.)

Good luck!

Yes, you can use the Bruce hardwood floor cleaner. I've used it many times to clean up after jobs. It brings a nice shine to the floor and is designed for either a hardwood or laminate floor. Hope this helps.
