Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera
I was going to purchase a F717 from a guy online, but he emailed me after I asked him to check the battery power. He said: "When I was testing the batteries and I turn on the camera with the cap on...the lcd display starts drawing lines. It looks like if the hologram blocked by the cap and the camera does not have any info and starts doing this. If I start the camera normaly it will have no problem." Anyone heard of a problem like this with the F717. This camera is basically new and has only been used 5 times over the past year. I'm wondering if a wire or something came loose inside and if it can be fixed. Thank you for your help.

Yep, sounds like a bad connection on the display's internal cable. Need to check and see if the Electronic View Finder also shows the lines. If it does, then it may be a sensor problem, instead. If not, then the display has a bad connection or has gone bad itself. In either case, it's not a trivial issue.
