This camera is about 2 years old and some of the images now appear lighter on one side of the picture than the other. There is a division right down the middle of the picture and it is light on one side and dark on the other This does not happen with all pictures taken ... only about 20% of them.
I am not sure if I chose the correct model.. none of those listed are on my camera but it is a still and movie digital camera

This may be due to a faulty Timing Control board (TCON board). I had a similar problem with my Samsung LCD TV picture being split vertically down the middle. The image on both halves appeared fuzzy and in reverse (mirror) including the menus. I replaced the TCON board and the problem was resolved.
Thast's a bit odd, Elise. A couple of things to check: 1. Is the lock switch in the fully UP position? It is a little slide switch on the side opposite the cut-off corner. Slide it right down then back up again . 2. Does the card have old images, music or other data stored on it? It will hold up to 400 5mb images but it does, like all memory cards, have finite capacity. 3. Have you tried formatting the card in camera?
Your CCD chip in the camera is defective. There is a lot of information on the web regarding this phenomenon. Here's a link to much of that info, http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1128958202.html Note that the info is getting a little outdated now, as this problem has been identified and rectified. It only appeared in cameras that are now about six years old.
Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.
You did not say what sensitivity setting you had the camera set at- the higher the sensitivity the lighter the picture.
Actually- all the image information is there so all that needs to be done is to edit the image lighter in a graphics editing program[You did say whether or not you import images to a computer]
Come back back with more info on what you do with the images.
To transfer pictures:
1. Remove the memory card from the camera.
2. Insert the memory card into the floppy disk adapter.
Make sure that you insert the memory card into the adapter with the gold side of the memory card facing you and to the right and the silver side of the adapter facing away from you.
3. Insert the floppy disk adapter into the diskette drive on your computer.
4. Double-click the PhotoMAX shortcut on your desktop to open the software.
5. Click Get Photo.
6. Click Album or FlashPath.
7. Click Downlod from FlashPath. The images appear as thumbnails on the album manager window.
8. Double-click the image that you want to edit. The image appears in the image tray.
9. Remove the FlashPath Floppy Disk Adapter from the diskette drive when you are done.
