I have had my camera for not even a year and it recently started having this problem. Whenever I take a picture, the object will look fine in the display, but when I take the picture it gets horizontal lines across the picture. It is much worse if there is any natural light coming into the picture. I have tried adjusting the flash, the white balance, but the pictures are still coming out this way.

Horizontal lines I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80.  When I look at the screen to take a picture, everything looks fine.  Video setting works fine too.  But, when I take a picture, there are horizontal lines all the way across the whole screen on every picture on every setting except the video as I already stated.  Please let me know what this means.  Thanks for your help.

Is there a way to tell what your shutter speed is? I can't figure it out .. It is said that shutter is best at 1/125 for motion pictures - so how will I know if thats what my sh

I just received my Nikon D3100 in the mail today, and I was so excited. When I opened the lens cap on the camera body to put the lens on a small, clear-ish rectangle fell out. It was surrounded by a thin cooper colored frame that is easily removable. It looked like a little magnifying glass so I am kind of nervous. It seems to shoot pictures fine, but some times it tells me the shot is to dark even though I am in full light. It also took black pictures the first few times and if I point it di

I have purple horizontal lines across my screen when i try to take a picture. When i snap the picture that is all i get. The memory card seems to be fine in that all the pix stored on it look fine when i check on the camera. What could be wrong?
