I have a couple of dark horizontal bands on my TV screen; almost as if the camera lens has not been cleaned.
This banding is not well defined as in straight lines, but is irregular. It is ovbiously most noticeable on a light background.
Thanks in anticipation.
Hi, when I last posted I found that luckily I was covered by my insurance/warranty (good 5 yr cover from House of Fraser!) so we had an engineer come and check the tv. Within seconds of seeing the tv he diagnosed the screen as duff and said it would have to be replaced. Even more luckily, the insurance paid out for the full value of the tv to the value when we purchased it so after retiring the 'screen of inconsistency' we quickly went about finding another and we finally bought a 32" Panasonic Viera. Again from the House of Fraser and again with a good old 5 year cover!! It would seem with LCDs, reliability is not yet there so the correct cover is the key to a happy life!! Good luck.

pixel thin are almost always the lcd panel. you could try opening the tv an reseating (un hook and rehook) the cables that go to the screen. there is a board at the top of the back of lcd panel that drives the video. it has connections in and out that i would reseat. if this doesn't resolve, that board could be bad but unlikely. most likely needs a new panel, sorry for the news. :(
It's quite likely a manufacturer error which Nikon will fix for free. Go to http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html I just got mine back - took about five weeks because they were out of stock on the CCD (Charge Coupled Device) that they had to replace. Don't give up on the camera. It's worth having it repaired since all it will cost you is to send it to them. Have had the camera four years and it's been to Europe and the Caribbean with us.
I have had a similar problem. Pictureres look like they are taken through a Venetial blind with white horizontal bands though I did get one with dark banding. It appears to have something to do with light levels. I took a few pics in a dark area with no flash and now it is working again...until it quits working again. Perhaps it is something to do with light level calibration? Whatever it is the problem is internal. If you are still under warranty, I highly recommend taking your camera in for repairs/replacement. Ours started acting up just after the warranty expired so no love for us.
