When I turn my camera on and look through the view finder, I see nothing but black with white lines moving horizontally. It looks almost like an old television when you were trying to tune in a channel. :o)

Re: black and white lines in view finder
Screen or main board failure.
If it is still under warranty you may have a chance
bit if over a year or so old - not worth considering for repair- though you could try.

Does it work at all with out the view finder? If it does work completely then you can use the camera without the view finder. Point and shoot and the more you use it the better you get at it. Good Luck
You should go into the menu, camera settings and set the evf to on. EVF stands for electronic view finder. This can be set to be on when the lcd is open or closed. CAreful, if the evf is set to on and you point the viewfinder towards the sun, it will burn white marks into the viewfinder and ruin it.
If the view finder shows the same white display. You probably have display circuit problem in the camera. Faulty CCD chip usually shows Black screen so it probably board problem or a connector problem. If you see an image through view finder then you may have defective connection from board to LCD assy. Either way it need to be looked at by a trained technician. Good luck.
