Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera ?

My Sony Cybershot has started to take bad pictures

\015 My Sony Cybershot has started to take pictures that are either very washed out or with distinct lines in the background. I know it's not the screen only because pictures prior to the date look fine. Additionally, the bad pictures actually download that way onto the computer. It's not the batteries either; fresh set. What's the problem???\015

Hi, I own a Sony Cybershot camera, and it has been giving a few problems as of this week. The lens keep re-adjusting in and out when I turn the camera on to take pictures. It however responds just fine when in picture-view mode. There is a screen prompt that says 'Access' when the camera is turned on, as well as the message 'turn off camera and start again'. I do not think that the camera had fallen at any time, and it is just under a year old. Thanks a lot for your response, Sarah.
