Rolling lines on LCD on Nikon Z7

1 month 3 weeks ago #737414 by KENT MELTON
I'm using a buddies Z7 for this weekend as I might buy it.  The LCD just started showing lines rolling from top to bottom on it.  Any thoughts on what this might be?  I have turned it on and off and it's still there.  It wasn't on there when I first got the camera from him.  

Scratching my head, thanks for help!

Sounds like an interference issue. Change your location and see if it resolves itself

G'day Kent

It is also known as an occurrence with LCD screens when an overload occurs ... often a super-white patch (ie- street light at night with black surrounding it) or something similar. Whatever happens on the LCD screen does not occur on the sensor or photo

If it happens all the time - then it is a problem .... if it's a once in a blue-moon occurrence, then you will have to decide what you will accept

What sort of interference would do this? Electrical?  But then I thought newer cameras were dialed in to not be affected from these sort of things?

That's just a guess on my part as I know some electronics say to keep them away from other sources of electronic signals. I had a VoIP cell phone that was like this, telling me to keep it away from other sources like computers, et al.

What could interfere with a camera?  I thought the only thing was X-rays, and that was more on the film camera stand point?

If something operates on an electronic signal, a source, if strong enough, can interfere with that signal no matter what it is. Camera, radio, TV, drone or equipment on a jet airliner.

Another note. X-rays doesn't bother film cameras, only the film.
