Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera ?

Recently,when I turn the camera on to take pictures outside, I see vertical lines on the object I'm about to take a picture of. If I go ahead and take the picture, the lines are printed on the pictures. Hope you can help, as it's been a great camera. Rob

Called Sony. Went through 2 people in Customer Service or Repair to solve the problem. The 2nd one said I'd have to send it in to have the problem diagnosed for $139.00, plus any needed parts and labor. I decided to buy a new camera with more pixels for $30.00 more.
