Answers :

If the camera does not take new picture, and shows colored lines and distorted images in purplish or weird colors. And if the images taken are same as the weird ones on display, then you have a faulty ccd sensor.

The CCD sensor captures the light and convert in electric signal.
Often when it is faulty the camera does not detect the fault and keeps working.

Lens faults are less common because the camera detects the fault.

If the CCD sensor is good , then you have a problem with the logic board, where signal from CCD is processed sometimes one of the ribbon connector is lose or broken.

If the problem is not fixed swapping batteries and resetting, then the camera must be taken apart and tested by a technician.

My Fuji FinePix S5000 has given me years of excelent service. While on break I stored the camera for 2-3 months. When I pulled it out I noticed I had inadvertantly stored it in the "playback" mode.

Everything else is normal, I am able to view previous pictures saved on the xD card and it shows promptings on the monitor

Horizontal lines/overexposure My GE A730 has been an excellent camera, but recently has an increasing problem with pictures showing horizontal lines, and now overexposure.
