green streaks in pictures

This shows up in about three or four of the dozen pictures I took this monring. Does anyone have a clue what causes this? Why is it on some but not all?

Your sensor might be busted- could be time for a new camera!

Try another SD card before writing off the camera.

If it is a bad sensor any repair would not be worth the cost. The *istDS is a very old camera, any upgrade will offer a huge improvement, a used K-x is dirt cheap right now and it is a great camera.

Yes, everything that will fit an *istDS will fit a K-x or any other Pentax DSLR body.
