K-x strong colored stripes covering the image


I'm new here and seeking advice, I am getting colorful blotches / stripes covering up part of or the whole frame with horizontal direction rendering the image useless.
It happens every now and then, not very often but enough to worry me.
I am suspecting the memory card, not sure if this could be sensor issue, any other ideas ?

Thanks in advance

Need to see an example. Could very well be the card.

I am having the same problem, but the images are neon-green (see above thread). Have you found out anything else? When the images turn green, the memory card indicator lamp also turns red. So maybe it is a card issue? I am going to call customer service tomorrow.

With regards to both of these threads, we are useless to diagnose the possible issues unless we see examples of the images with EXIF data intact. Until you can post example images, everything is conjecture at best.
