From my experience (seen dozens of them like yours), the CCD (image sensor) has gone bad. There's lots on the 'net about this unfortunate phenomenon. In short, earlier CCD's were not sealed against moisture very well. Over time some seepage occurs (doesn't take much) causing streaking (usually purple & green) and blurred images. It may occur early in the camera's life, if used in humid conditions, or it may take a year or two or three in normal conditions.

I have just purchased a Bushnell Trophy Cam Model 119450. It will take one photo of a moving subject, then only records at the time interval rate ie every 2 minutes or whatever interval is selected. The result is that I end up with hundreds of images taken every 2 minutes (or whatever time interval is selected) but with no images of the animals I am attempting to photograph. I am using the cam in a remote location in India and I am very disappointed with the performance of this camera. Please he

No pictures I have a new Pentax Optio S10 with a Transcend 2GB sd card, which was correctly installed and formatted. I took several pictures which played back fine on the LCD screen.

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well. But when I go back and review the image on the camera, or off the memory card via my computer the image is distorted.

I have Image Expert 1.8.5 that was supplied with my Toshiba camera (that I no longer use). Recently the program offered to compress my files (or at least that's what I thought I was being offered).

When I tried to back up these files to a flash drive, I kept getting the message: "Cannot create or replace Image Expert Images. Cannot find the specified file.
