There's nothing wrong with your camcorder. This sometimes occurs when there is a lot of contrast between the background and the subject or object you're shooting. Try shooting from a different angle or adjusting the lighting conditions.

The pictures are over-exposed. if shooting manual, use a smaller aperture and/or a higher shutter speed. If in one of the automatic modes, then reduce ISO value to 100 or 200. Also check your white balance setting.
The manual on page 122 says:
Vertical streaks appear when you are shooting a very bright subject.
Cause / Solution : The smear phenomenon is occurring. This phenomenon is not a malfunction.
So when you are photographing in bad light, and some where in the frame is a bright light, from that light, white vertical strips can occur.
But you mention Horizontal lines. If this happens in normal light, outside, or in every light condition, something else must be wrong.
I wonder if bringing a 10 year old camera to a repair store or Sony service centre is worth doing.
The vertical line can be caused by a very bright object in the image like a lamp or a silver surface reflecting the flash. The spots are caused by the flash being SO close to the lens. Any object that can reflect the flash reflects it right back at the camera. This is an image problem with most point and shoot digitals. Watch for reflective surfaces and stand at an angle to them. Turn on more lights in the room before using flash. Stand at a slight angle to the image or person you are photographing - don't shoot straight on. (I kneel down and shoot up - makes a good shot too.) If you are shooting toward the sun, shield the lens from direct sunlight with your hand (Keep your hand out of the picture!)
If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality
variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure
cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid,
because the camera shutter fault.
