Distorted image The image I see through the viewer is distorted(vertical lines). Also if I take a picture that comes up the same, all vertical lines? The picture looks good in the viewfinder but the actual picture is distorted---many horizontal lines thru the picture and the exposure is very very light. I have tried cleaning the lens with an "air duster: but has not helped. Any suggestions?

Horizontal lines OK, we fixed the black screen and black pictures, but I'm still getting a strong pattern of horizontal lines in my pics.

Is this fixable? Or is my camera dying? ~Ange
