If the light intensity is high, the pictures appears to be almost white and horizontal lines can be seen.. does it something to do with its lenses??? if light is low, it is clearer but still horizontal lines are present.. please answer me if what is wrong with my cam..

I have purple horizontal lines across my screen when i try to take a picture. When i snap the picture that is all i get. The memory card seems to be fine in that all the pix stored on it look fine when i check on the camera. What could be wrong? The only thing of note is that i had the memory card alone in my cold car for a few days . I tried putting a new memory card in the camera and that didn't change anything either with the purple horizontal lines.

I have just bought a Panasonic SD700 camcorder. It is fantastic. But I am a novice and all I want to do is to transfer the files to my laptop and watch them. Media Player wouldn't play them so I downloaded Codecs which has partially solved the problem. Downloaded VLC Media Player which again has partially solved the problem. I can now see the home video clips but there is a significant amount of horizontal line distortion (best way I can describe it) when the camera or the subject moves.

My S700 will display video clips perfectly on the built-in screen but they download through the cable now in B&W only, and the "vertical hold" is off (the bottom of the picture appears at the top of the TV screen, with a thick dividing line). Could this problem be adjusted out or would I need a whole new circuit board? The camera has never been dropped, etc.
