Having problems with your Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera ?

Pink discoloration and vertical lines in light areas

\015 When taking pictures outside, sometimes suddenly there appear artifacts in a number of pictures in a row. The light or white areas (eg clouded sky) appear bright pink/lilac and there are vertical lines where the intensity and color varies going from left to right. Sometimes 10-20 pictures in a sequence have this problem. Dark /midtone areas of the picture seem OK. At the next occasion all is as normal. Camera a few months old, never been dropped.\015

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.
