Z740 Digital Camera Dark Pictures w/ lines

I dropped my camera last week and now when i take pictures, they show up dark and with lines all across them. They look find through the view finder before I take them, then as soon as I snap the shot, it shows lines across the picture. It also shows up with lines when i transfer them to my computer.

    I have the Kodak Z740 and have the same problem, I thought the strap was secure and when I put the camera around my neck it came off and hit the floor. Everything seems fine when I look at the LCD screen before I take the picture but when I take the picture and review it, it comes out either darker or lighter than it should with lines through it. I thought once I put them on my computer it would be solved, but that's not the case. What do we do?

My pictures are to dark

if you are doing flash photography you will have to limit the shots to a distance of 10-15 feet to get nicely lit pics. also try setting the exposure compensation to +2 to brighten up the pic. Also are you shooting on manual ???

Dark lines in background of picture its a sony cybershot dsc-s750

I think your camera chip is dying soon. Try taking a photo on a blank sheet of paper, black and white, see if there are lines. If there is, it shows that the camera chip is defective...
