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

Horizontal lines in my photos. Nothing on lense: the photo looks fine on the LCD until I look at the history. When I put them on the computer to view-the lines are still there. I have a bran new Kodak Z series easy share camera (2 weeks) has not been dropped or water damaged: all of a sudden the lines appeared (with in one photo- and maybe one minute between the two) I must have set something wrong but the web site had nothing> I took the battery out (didn't work either). A long, but unusefull

Please can you advise me? The fault appeared without apparent reason, and is that when you take a photo, thin horizontal black lines appear, and when you transfer to the PC the lines are still there. The lines only appear after you have taken the picture - whilst you are viewing the subject through the viewfinder everything seems just fine. Many thanks for anything light you can throw on this, otherwise very happy with the camera. Tony

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. I played with it this evening and notice that the line moves down to about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom of the screen when I press the shutter in picture mode and stays there while

I believe I got salt water spray on my camera this past summer and now it is having various problems that come and go. Foremost is most pictures are washed out of color and there is horizontal lines in the pictures. Sometimes shutter doesn't open or close. Flash won't pop up. Running slow. Is this worth repairing or should I buy a new camera?

Salt water is corrosive over time and the damage is ongoing. Unless this is a very expensive camera, it probably isn't worth repairing. ... Digital Cameras

Everything seems to be working but the shutter release button. It does nothing, even depressing the button halfway for metering shows nothing. no indicators in viewfinder info line. I assumed it was a third party Battery problem, as there was a Impact battery being used primarily at the time. However replacing the Battery with a pentax battery didn't change anything. Camera not dropped, or damaged in any way, its a sudden problem i cannot seem to troubleshoot.

Remove the lens and fire off a few shots. Re-attach the lens and try again. That sometimes works. ... Pentax K10D Body Only Digital Camera

HI, the camera was hanging on back of a chair with the strap and slip off to the Tile floor. The camera takes pictures but, lines come across the screen as soon as the picture is taken. My wife has down loaded the camera and relayed that all the pictures taken after the drop either have the lines or just didn't take at all. The drop to the floor was probably 18" to 24"

Lens inoperative? When camera is turned on, there is no image on the screen, just flashing horizontal lines. It will take a picture and the flash goes off, but the result is a picture of the flashing horizontal lines. Any fix for this? Is the camera repairable? Would we send it back to Canon for repair? What would be the approximate cost? Thank you.
