Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera
When I take a photo (doesnt matter if I am nusing flash or not) the photo is all white washed and there are fine lines along the entire picture. Does any one have any suggestions for what may be the issue?

Take that camera in anyway. I still beleive you have a CCD problem.
There is a difference in the way the CCD shifts out data when in movie mode and that might be why you still have a good picture.
I personally replace acouple CCD`s on the DSC-F717. And yes Sony paid us on behalve of the customer.
Be nice to the front-end staff when taking it in. It might prove a very good investment.

Because of your help I was able to findout that Sony is aware of the CCD problem and is reparing the problem for free. Thanks so much for the help.
My camera was bought in May 04 and just now in September it started having the "whitewashed" and lines all throughout problem on my LCD screen. I first thought I had accidentally messed up the exposure or white balance settings. After trying everything, I realized nothing was going to work. Then I took out battery for a while and it would work like normal after inserting the battery back in?! Then about a day or so later, the problems reappeared. Taking out and reinserting the battery worked for about a month, now nothing helps. I saw the sony website and it said that it has a problem with the CCD setting and it will fix free of charge. But, then it takes you through steps to see if you qualify for this defect recall and it was only saying that the LCD problem is in the MOVIE mode, not the still picture mode, so I don't think I qualify because oddly enough, my LCD screen is fine in movie mode? Not sure what to do?
I have the same problem...I'm just going to send it in to Sony to fix, as it seems like a mfg error, since nothing has happened to my camera to make it do this!
