White horizontal streaks

\015 4 year old camera. Occasionally getting white horizontal streaks on viewfinder screen and picture.\015

Answers :

This sounds like some kind of lens flair. Make sure there are no bright light sources at about 45 degrees to the lens and it should correct this problem.
