pentax optio M40 lines across display scree

Hi, My digital pentax Optio M40 suddenly has lines across the display screen and comes out on the pictures on the computer- what is wrong with it and is it worth fixing ?? Have turned of/on and removed and replaced the battery. Thanks

Most likely a scratched element or bad sensor itself if it appears on both screen and images. IMO, this may not be worth fixing considering the value of the camera.

It could be a bad connection to the ccd. Canon and sony had a bunch of cameras that used a sony ccd that did this. They were recalled for it.
