Not sure what could cause the white lines. Are you sure you did put the camera in automatic mode? if it is in any other position, it could be you force it to overexpose. In the manual are several causes, why the camera can have trouble focusing. too little contrast in the subject, is only one of the reasons.
Please check the manual for the settings of the camera.

When you say the battery has been stored for two years, I hope you removed it from the camera before storing it. Otherwise, the terminals may have corroded and damaged more than the battery. If nothing is corroded have the battery checked. Sitting unused for that length of time may have shortened the battery's lifetime considerably.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Hi there:
A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.




Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Select Backup from the Setup menu to copy pictures from the internal memory to a memory card. This is a copy, not a move, leaving internal memory untouched. It also does not affect any favorites.

Unfortuneately when water enters the camera this is usually a one way ticket, I recommend you remove the memory card to save your pictures, the liquid has already started eating into the ic pins eventually sending the camera into cascade failure that can take days, weeks, and months before the full extent is known. I recommend you consider replacing the camera.

If all functions are working, there is a problem with the screen or the ribbon wire connected to the system control board may be loose. Replacement screen may be required.

The display being black can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the display is not seen, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.

However if the older images are seen well then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD- charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is damaged. Remove the battery and keep the camera aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
