Just bought a cannon eos 70d and every picture I take has black lines through it....?

Is this a settings issue or is there something wrong w the camera....? Any help appreciated. Ta

Welcome, Rachel. Can you post one or two examples of pictures with black lines through them? That might help us figure out what's wrong.

One quick thing to try - format your memory card inside the camera and see if that helps. Yellow wrench menu #1, last item, and press SET. WARNING! This will erase all pictures on your card, so if there are important pictures on there, copy them to your computer first.

Also try another, preferably known good, card.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.

Hi Rachel,

 

I saw your post on another forum, with image samples.

 

To me that looks like a faulty camera.

 

At most I'd reinstall (or update) the firmware.... that's something you can do yourself and costs nothing... just download the firmware from the Canon USA website and intall it following the instructions carefully.  

 

If that doesn't help, I'd ask about exchanging the camera, if possible. Or send it to Canon Service Dept. to be checked.
