Thanks Bob,
The image sensor is failing in the camera. The chips starts to fail and it does not record the image correctly.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the camera so it can be replaced (this is a hardware fault). It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and fif you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
