I have a Carl Zeiss Optical 3x Sony Cybershot. When I flip it open to turn it on, the image is either moving with horizontal lines, or blurred vertically (image looks like it's melting). The photo images come out as they appear on the camera screen. Sometimes the image will appear clear and normal on the camera screen when I flip it open. The camera hasn't been in intense heat or cold.

My Canon PowerShot S400 shows a blurred image on my screen, one that looks like streaks of light. As I pan the camera the streaks move, too. Sometimes, but not consistently, when I take a photo there are streaks on the resultant image, often greenish blue. Here's something else: When I turn the camera on, the lens opens with a series of small clicks, such as might happen if the lenses have been damaged in some way.

It is definitely a CCD issue. First of all how long have you owned the camera? I am guessing it is out of warranty so in most cases it is the best option to purchase a replacement as you will be able to get one twice as good for about as much as the ... Digital Cameras

My Canon S3 IS compact has a viewfinder problem. Upon switching on it always shows the "settings" icons around the viewfinder but the image is not there. I have to turn the camera on and off about 6 to 10 times. The viewfinder image starts to appear dim and blurred. Finally it starts to work OK. It is 2years old and taken about 1000 images.

Hello there, My Samsung ES55 recently stopped working completely (not turning on) for no apparent reason. I had been taking lots of photos, 153 to be exact, and then it just didn't work. It was still under warranty and when I got it back from the camera shop, they told me it had been dropped - which it hadn't - and whilst it was now working, they would guaruntee it any more. Now the camera works but the images are often blurred. I think it might be an auto-focus problem. When I try and tak

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Image 'melts' into streaky vertical lines when camera is turned on. This problem started occuring immediately after I found my kids deliberately turning the camera off while jamming the lens cover open, so they could get the 'turn camera off and then on again' error message (yes, I know - they've been banned from touching it again). I confiscated the camera, turned it off and it sat unused for about 3 days. When it was next turned on, the image on the LCD screen was

Blurry images I purchased about a year ago a new Panasonic DMC-TZ4. And up until this point, I was in love with this camera. However, just recently, sometimes when I turn the camera on, the screen is showing images to be out of focus and blurry. All the settings are correct. Some times it stays like this for hours. Other times, I can turn the camera off and then back on and the blurriness goes away. Twice the camera has frozen and I had to take the battery out. And some times when I turn the cam

I was in the middle of shooting a wedding, when suddenly my camera said that it was 'busy' - it was taking a while to go back to normal, so I decided to shut the camera off and just turn it back on again (I didn't mind loosing the last image). When I turned the camera back on... all of the sudden the shutter kept going off extremely fast (without me pressing the shutter button). I turned the camera back off, but the shutter kept going off. I freaked out and too the battery out to make it stop.
