I first experienced a problem with my Canon S2Is camera when it was only taking pictures of blank images. I found a "fix" recommendation which seems to have gotten rid of the black image problem. However, now when I take pictures the images seem to have horizonal lines through them if I don't use the flash. Also, if I am taking a picture outside or in a lot of light, the image ends up being extremely light. Have any suggestions?

Think you need to do the fix more. Believe your shutter was previously stuck in the closed position. Now it sounds like it is stuck in the open position. Again keep trying the fix to loosen it up. Just to confirm, the "fix" you're talking about i ... Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

Vertical Lines I just got my new camera (Canon Powershot A1100IS), and took some pictures in a strong light. The sharp images came out no problem.

I was taking pictures outside using a tripod mounting and had my Fujifilm FinePix S5000 on in photography mode - Auto mode.

"overexposure" The problem arose after I visited a botanical garden and went from cold outside weather to high temperature and humidity conditions. The next day I found that the image through the viewfinder and lens appeared vastly overexposed, nearly all white. If I focused on an object, the exposure would return to normal, but the picture taken was shot through all over with fine white lines, making it indecipherable. The exposure through the lens and viewfinder has now returned to normal, but

Verticle Lines When I turn on my camera, all I can see in my view-finder is many lines, almost like a multi-colored bar code. Sometimes this occurs after trying to take the first picture, but most of the time there cannot even be a first picture. When I attempt to snap a picture with the lines in the view finder and then 'recall' that picture, it is only the lines.
