Horizontal lines OK, we fixed the black screen and black pictures, but I'm still getting a strong pattern of horizontal lines in my pics. Pictures shot with manual setting adjustments are better than those on automatic, and the lines don't show too much with a strong flash (but if the flash is too strong then the image is washed out). Is this fixable? Or is my camera dying? ~Ange

I've got an A-75 digital (Canon) When pushing down on the shutter button, the orange light is on next to the viewing window. It will not take a photograph and the flash does not work. I looked through the manual and it said something about the flash charge. When I attempt to take a photo the image has green squares throughout the viewing screen as if they are focusing screens.

Hi.my daughter's Panasonic DMC-FZ7 has gone dark through the view-finder, and all the photos and videos that she tries to shoot are likewise totally black. While photographing yesterday, she paused to gently clean the lens. All photos since then have been black.
