Default camera problems

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this but I guess it will be ok.

So... recently my camera has been acting weird and it takes pictures with lines that is very annoying. I have some sample pics here however taking a movie seems to be fine. The camera model is Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 and i've used it for 12 months now. (sorry if the picture does not work, I have these pictures off my own server which is not 24/7)

3264 x 2448
3264 x 2448
1600 x 1200
640 x 480
test movie clip (seems ok to me)

so... it seems that it does not matter if i take at high resolution or low resolution... and on the camera screen it looks perfect before i press the shutter button but when it shows the preview image it has lines on it.

Graphics card: Inno3D Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS @ 640/940 (core/memory)
MB: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 v3.3 F12
RAM: 2 Kingston HyperX DDR2 800MHz (4GB total)
CPU: Core 2 Duo E6320 @variable rates (will fix my fan problem soon and overclock high again)
HSF: Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme & Antec Tricool 120mm fan
PSU: Delta Serverpower 550W
HD: Seagate 400GB ST340032AS & Excelstor 80GB (both SATA)
Case: don't know what case it is but it is very crappy
Optical Drive: Lite-on 16X DVD+&- RW DL (died) using a CD-ROM drive until I get a new blu ray burner or whatever i can get

**been afk from tech-forums for a while so this is the updates specs**

Default Re: camera problems

It seems there are many issues with this camera. One guy seems to be having problems with lines on the display as well, although he doesn't have a solutions either.

Problems with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 Digital Camera
Screen problem: - FixYa

My first thought was to update the firmware on the camera, but unfortunately there are none available for download on their website.

DMC-FS5/DMC-FS3 | PRODUCTS | LUMIX | Digital Camera | Panasonic Global

I recommend you take it back to the store, if the camera is still covered by warranty.

Cheeseburgers everyone
