When turned on, my Olympus 700 Stylus digital camera shows a thin green vertical line on the right side of the viewfinder--7/16 of an inch to the left of the right edge of the viewing area. Part of this line from the bottom up appears on the images downloaded into my computer. However, when the intensity of the light is increased, the visibility of the line in the viewfinder and downloaded image is decreased. What is the problem and can it be corrected?

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off.
