horizontal lines in Q image with adapter lens?

hey guys.

very new to DSLR.

i have bought pentax q and an adapter so i can fit my canon efs 18-55m on pentax q.

as you can see one is taken without any lens from my pentax q and the one with said "youberry" is the one with my canon lens.
how come there are horizontal lines across my pics?

is this because perhaps i use bad adapter and canon lens on my pentax q?

cheers guys

That...doesn't look normal at all. Looks like a sensor flaw, but a thousand times worse than any flaw I've ever seen. Did you perhaps place your camera into a paint shaker?

Essentially - I'd contact the seller of the camera, and request a refund. That's a horrendous flaw.

well as you can see 2nd pics are done with no lens on the body.
1st one is canon efs 18-55m
is this can be happen due to using different company's lens with (made in china adapter?)

It's interference between the sweeping read of the sensor and flicker from the artificial lighting. Our eyes get tricked that the lighting is constant but in reality it's just pulsating. Nothing wrong with the camera as this is how an electronic shutter works under some artificial lighting, and the only thing you can do is try different shutter speeds or change the lighting.

You can shoot without a lens but it will just be some odd purplish mess.

Try it outside and you'll see if there's a problem.

I quite like the first shot. It looks like you're spying through someone's blinds.
