Solved.... but image sent for info..... viewed on the computer, direct USB connection to camera.... When mouse pointer is in the image the dark band appears top and bottom......... move the mouse to the edge and the image returns to normal.

Clearly the camera is fine, some how the mouse causes the banding and may lead others to see it as a fault.
Thanks for the replies, but as you can see it is not anything to do with picture size/format settings.

The banding you are seeing is actually caused by Windows Media Player. It tries to give the picture a soft border when the controls are visible with a mouse hover (this is so the controls are displayed more clearly).
If you use something like VLC player or just double click on the image to make it full screen the black banding disappears.
