Having problems with your Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera ?

Photos are not clear and has lines

\015 I have an Olympus Fe-340. In one occassion, I've been taking photos...everything was perfect until all of a sudden, the next photos had fine horizontal lines and appeared either darker or so much brighter. \015\012\015\012I thought that it was just the LCD monitor that has a problem so I just continued on taking photos. But when I transferred it to the PC, all those photos are really dull +with lines.\015\012\015\012I experimented some shots again of different objects and noticed that the photos I took in a very close distance (1-ft and less) appear clear...but beyond that distance ...everything has lines and so yellowish. If for instance, I take a very close shot of an object with a far background...that object appear clear but the rest of the objects have lines.\015\012\015\012With the settings using the scenes "Smile" and "Candle"---photos are clear too. But with the rest of the scene settings...everything was just too bad.\015
