    My S7000 has recently developed a serious problem. Some, if not all the pictures I take in a sitting are a green and purple blur. Each picture has a varying degree of green and purple blur; everything from just some green shadows to a picture of nothing but purple and green swirls. And sometimes I can still get a perfectly normal picture. There seems to be no consistency to this problem, in that the normal pictures might be produced on the first pictures I take, or after several bad ones have been taken. I have tried switching between medias with no change. The problem happens in sunlight or indoor light, or while using the flash. On Christmas day I was trying to take pictures with the flash and could not get any good pictures. I turned off the flash and then got nothing but good pictures. However, the next time I used it without the flash it would not take a good picture. Very unpredictable. Any ideas on what the problem might be? Thanks

    I'm not sure exactly what that means. This is a long shot, but have you tried using a different memory card?

    Unfortunately it sounds like a sensor problem to me. Your camera may be at the end of its life.

    Yes I have. The camera has two types of media in it and I have switched back and forth with no change. Also, I was pretty sure it was not the media because you can see the green and purple shadows in the viewfinder before you even take the picture.

    The other obvious thing to try is to replace the battery. If you don't have a 2nd battery on hand, this may be an expensive experiment. As Andy said, sounds like an electronic failure.

    It takes AA batteries, so yes I have replaced them as well. I had suspected it was the sensor, but needed confirmation from someone before I trash it. Thanks

    A camera repair shop would likely give you a free assessment.
