Immediately after I've taken a shot everything seems to be fine but on playback the picture is faded with geometric lines over it.Also sometimes the screen is completely blank when I try to take a shot.The problem is not there all the the time which makes it more annoying.Advise please.

I'm afraid your camera is affected by the well known Sony CCD sensor problem - a large number of CCD chips manufactured by Sony between 2002 and 2004 were prone to early failure, due to some problem in the manufacturing process. Sony offered free repair of the affected products (which seem to include your camera), but this offer seems to have ended in 2007. You could of course still call Sony's customer service and ask if the offer has been prolonged.
Please check the image size (pixels x pixels) setting or the resolution (MP). Seems like the camera is shooting in low resolution. Have you used this memory card on a mobile phone or another camera? Format the memory card and try again.
Intermittent horizontal deflection
Resoldered the pins of horizontal deflection transformer
Picture is horizontally narrowed and deformed
Capacitor C2913 (390nF, 250V) on the deflector PCB had lost capacity
Geometric distortion, Pillow, and picture enlarged horizontaly
The problem was a short from GND to pin 11 inside IC301 (TDA8350Q).
This pin is the output of amplifier for geometric correction signal.
Thi is a very very common problem and as a matter of fact there is a factory recall out on this model.. Go here http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html and read and searcg h down to sony and the first model listed is yours.. Good Luck
Yes, You are correct, it does not seem to be problem with the CCD. Insted it seems to be with shutter control or apparture control mechanism of the camera. Normaly there is one single cable carring signal to the shutter blade mechanism and the diaphram control. If this cable is damaged it shows the same symptoms as you have described in your mail. Get in touch with an expert camera repairer.
