This started shortly after beginning a video shoot. The screen just flashes or it becomes a series of rolling lines.
If you take a picture anyway - you get a photo of the flashing/rolling light.
Battery change didn't help.
I tried gently tapping on various parts of the camera (as described in another topic on this board) most especially the battery compartment.
Neither of these have helped or changed the condition.
Much Thanks, moonmaiden

You do have Video or else the picture of your screen would not appear. I suggest you look at the INPUT, for example the lines into the TV, HDMI cords etc. If you have an extra TV or even a computer monitor, wire it up and see if these devices provide an active video stream. In short, the problem has to be external or with the input section of the TV.
The green picture tube has an internal short. Happened a lot with that model. The tubes are no longer availible. But a reputable company called Video Display will rebuild the tube completely. But the tube must be pulled and shipped to them. Most repair shops would charge around $400 to $500 for the complete job.
is there check engine sign on ?
if so go to the right hand side of the dash and pull a lil blue plug from a dummy green socket only has two wires use a lil wire to complete circuit the check engine sigh will begin to flash a code one short flash is 1 and one long flash is 10 example long long long short short short is 33 if there is more than one code a new series of numbers will begin and start all over automatically most likely its you idle air control valve dealer only part dont buy used 99%of time there burned out good luck
From your description it sounds like a bad picture tube. The lines are called retrace lines. There is a small chance that a component on the small board that connects to the neck of the tube may be bad. Without model number information it is very difficult so say further. Some picture tubes can be re-jeuvenated with the appropriate machine ( at a TV repar shop)
If you feel adventurous and are careful you might try GENTLY tapping the neck of the tube and see if picture improves/goes out. If the tapping does change the picture it is definitely the tube
When I turn on my computer the monitor takes a long time to warm up and colors change and vertical lines flash across the screen from right to left before the screen becomes normal again. Now the power light even goes out upon turning on my computer and I have to unplug the video cord and plug it back in to start the screen back up which even takes longer.
