Screen border On my Fuji S700, pictures used to fill the entire screen when i took and reviewed them. Now, my screen has black border lines on the top and bottom of the screen. When I upload pictures, they are wider from left to right, and thinner top to bottom. When I get them printed, the sides get cut off. How do I get the border thing off?

Broken screen I have had the Olympus FE 190 since May 2007. At the moment, the screen is broken. It appears to have some physical damage, but since I bought a protective case, I can't think of how it would happen. when the camera is off, you can see a large darker spot on the screen. when turned on, the top half of the screen is white, with the large black spot running through. there also seems to be a lighter thin line in the spot. the bottom half of the screen is fine and ready to take a

Screen damage? no problems in two years until today after shooting several "best shot" in monochrome, then returning to regular shooting position in color. no drops ever and only gentle usage.

I own a Canon GL2 Video Camcorder. While in the Camera Position, it appears on the view screen two horizontal white lines, one on top (1/4" from the top) and the other on the bottom of the screen about 1/4" from the bottom. Even though it does not affect the end result. It makes it very difficult to film as the lines don't allow me to center (align properly) the subject I want to film. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

My Cannon Power shot SX120 is less than a year old, I havent dropped or otherwise abused it. One moment the camera was fine, the next moment it has really bad horizontal lines in the pictures. The closer you zoom the worse the lines are. The lines cover the entire picture from top to bottom. I have tried replacing the batteries with fresh ones, even tried a different memory card..nothing seems to help.
Have you tried to reset to original settings in the setup window. I would try that maybe..If that doesn't work then its probably an issue with your sensor unit which is apart of your lens. ... Canon PowerShot SX120 IS Digital Camera

I've recently noticed a wide dark horizontal line approx 1/4 of the way down from the top of my screen display. The camera is kept in my home office, has not been dropped, gotten wet or exposed to extreme temps or humidity. The still photos come out fine but the videos I take have the line going through them.
