When I turn my camera on I only see a dark blue and black image with white lines running through it--could I have damaged something or have I messed up my settings? I can look at previous pictures taken, they look fine, I just can't figure out why I can't see anything through the view finder or LCD monitor in order to take new pics. i have been reading through the manual, tried new batteries (regular AA)--any suggestions?

I have a Cuddeback C-1000 trail camera. Mostly all the pics taken at night are black. About every 8-10 pics will take. The rest are black. Apparently the flash is not going off every time. Even in the black pics you can see a faint image. This camera has taken over 15,000 life time images. Cuddeback will want to upgrade my camera for a newer one. I do not want to do this as I have read the reviews of newer cameras and realize their first two models are the best. I think we have had this

My Olympus SP-560UZ USED TO take good pics, and when I look at older pics taken on the rear LCD screen, THEY look fine. However, when I look at real time images on LCD screen and/or take new pics, everything appears "smeared". When I look at new photos taken on LCD screen, or even transferred to computer, it's even WORSE...just one blurry mass of swirling colours.

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

There are lots of white lines on my photos. It doesn't seem to matter what the setting is, flash or not, and I've replaced the batteries which are new.
