Default Fault with my FZ38?

Took a few photos of my phone for a forum, and there seems to be a problem somewhere, i think maybe the camera. Its like the picture is split then badly put back together.

If it just the phone LCD when this happens then dont worry about it. Best guess is that the LCD update strobe rate is spooking the cameras electronics (eg, stabilization, focus metering systems).

Looks pretty unusual to me - but is it just the phone that this happened with? Or has it happened with any other pictures? Did the picture look OK on the camera when you took it? It could also be that the mobile phone signal is affecting the electronics directly at that range.

The thing i notice is that it isn't only the phones lcd so imo that rules out the refresh rate
