Having problems with your Panasonic Digital Cameras ?

Hoizontal and vertical lines on screen---color distorted


Answers :

This is common to see when the capacitor in the circuitry get weak. If you did not try fresh batteries as of yet, do so. It may solve your problem. If not repairs are needed to the board installing a new capacitor.. Sometimes the cost to repair outweighs the cost of a new camera
Hi.

The distorted and blurred picture and often in false colors is probably caused by a defective CCD sensor. The CCD sensor is the light sensitive chip that captures the picture. This is located inside the camera body, right behind the lens.

CCD sensor is a common failure. Here an article: Widespread CCD problems in consumer imaging product. Panasonic released a bulletin on the problem and was covering repair on models from several years. Here the forum, Panasonic removed the notice from Web. Conatact them to find out if you are entitled to repair.

Note: If the lines are well defined color bands that are not blurred and do not move, then problem may be connector to LCD, LCD display or board. CCD sensor is a more common failure.

Kodak V803 I think this is due to the camera being dropped: The camera switches on but all that appears on the viewscreen is a white light accompanied by black patches of distortion. The distortion suggests that the camera has suffered an impact as it has the appearance of a smashed window - with lines of distortion running across the screen. The view screen itself - is in tact - no evidence of impact - cracks or dents. I cannot get rid of this screen distortion no matter what button I press. Wh
