    My finepix z1 was working fine, I've stored it with its battery inside and after a couple of weeks (maybe a few months) the battery went dead and after recharging battery everything look fine until I tried to take some pictures. Now the pictures have horizontal lines on it, and to things are very strange: 1) it still make perfect movies (in 640 and 320 as well) and 2) no matter the resolution (.3M, 2M, 3M or 5M) the horizontal lines appear in the same place (actually in .3M - 640x480 - the lines are not so strong).

    I just bought a used Z1, same horizontal lines, not noticeable at 0.3mp, otherwise quite severe. Maybe a common fault on this model?

    I have exactly the same problem with horizontal lines in my pictures...they are still there when photos are put onto the computer...strangely, the movie function still works fine - no lines there! Help!

    I have the same problem! Movie function works fine, but horizontal lines through all the pictures. Not as severe in the .3 mode, just like everyone else! What is going on?

    My Fuji Z1 started giving only pictures with horozontal lines after 10 months of OK use. Nil solutions except I won't buy anymore Fuji items until they can fix the problem. Movie mode works OK.

    Was hoping to find a solution here but seems like I'm in a long queue for that. My finepix f470 was doing great and now just horizontal lines on stills but movie working just fine. Doesn't seem to be any 'at home' solution unless I've missed something?

    I started having the exact same problems with horizontal lines. The movie mode is fine, but all photos have distinct lines in each image. I've owned the camera since 2007 and thist only began to happen about 6 months ago.

  • Caro76 Feb 05, 2009

    Same problem. Happened sometime in 2007. Been wondering for a while now how we can get this "fixed." Video mode works just fine, pics show horizontal lines. Real bummer as we were initially very pleased with this camera.

You're describing the process known as "cropping". While this is possible on a handful of cameras, you would have to check your manual to see if yours has this capability in the camera. You could use any photo editing program to crop out unwanted material in a photo.

The clue is with the video.
The video function does not use the shutter. Lines on photo's or over exposure is due to the shutter not closing completely over the lens when you take a picture.
It will require cleaning which means opening up your camera and accessing the lens unit

Does these pictures have the lines when you transfer them to a computer? If so,, than it is likely a capacitor needs to be changed out which is causing the interference. If it does not show up when you transfer them, than it may just be the review program on the camera.

Hi, Sounds like a memory problem. You can try using the built-in menu utility function of formatting the memory (be it internal or external memory). Of course this will also delete all current files/photos in it. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
