I have a DX7590 thats developed banding and over-exposure similar to the
cameras that have the Sony CCD problem. Is it worth fixing out of warrantee?

My opinion is that consumer-level cameras are not worth fixing. And all I have are consumer-level.

You've tried a different SD card and resetting the camera?

Hmmm, theres no exif data attached to the pic, is it possible to tell us or send another with the exif data intact? This is the first I've heard of this problem with these cameras. Really curious about the settings used for it

I just got the camera second hand, thinking it might be an easy fix.
So far I've tried a new SD card, reformatted the card, reformatted the
internal memory and updated the firmware without any luck.

I went to Kodak's website and filled out a repair form and it gave an
estimate of $150 for a repair. I may just send it to them and see what

Here's another pic done with "save as" instead of "save
for web" in Photoshop. I've only cut the width down to 400, no other
processing was done.

One more clue:

Pictures shown on the LCD immediately after being taken,
when the SD card logo on the upper right of the display is
flashing, have more lines than after the post processing is

Pictures taken in low light and/or flash come out beautiful,
those taken in sunlight even at f8 and 1/1000s come out
washed out with the lines.

I've tried 2 different SD cards with the same result.
