Why is the image on the LCD screen distorted?

When I turn my camera on and start filming, the LCD screen is showing strange distortions and lines in the picture. I have tried recharging the batteryand resetting the camera to no avail.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Question: Does the screen display the menu options in front of what looks like distorted lines? Or is everything distorted on the screen?
