Camera has been great--not abused or dropped--during a football game, started getting horizontal lines through my lens (was using LCD at the time); appears to "scramble" or distort anything I point the camera at. Never had this happen before. Problem was intermittent for a week or two; now seems to be permanent problem. It sees the subject but distorts it greatly. Have tried new batteries, re-formatted cards, etc. Problem is more likely in the lens I believe but have no idea what is wrong. Any ideas on what is wrong and how to correct it? Thanks Vick
Hello there I was having that same problem with my S7000 before my CCD sensor stopped working, the horizontal lines i had were black and blue. Hope you dont have the same problem as me.
I had the same problem. What cured it for me was going into setup mode and changing almost all the funtions. Like changing adapter to yes, frame No. to renew, and ccd- raw to on.
Then moving throught the the auto, sp, Movie funtions, and repeating the move to setup and changing the adapter to yes, frame No. to renew, and ccd- raw to on, until my camera started focusing on it own.
I had given up it and was going to send it for repairs but it works fine now.
