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.

Sometimes this occurs after trying to take the first picture, but most of the time there cannot even be a first picture.
