Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P100 Digital Camera ?

Lines across the LCD screen

\015 When I turn my camera on I just get lines across the LCD screen. Even if I turn the LCD screen off it only takes a picture of lines. I can view old pictures but that is it. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Two things can cause lines across the LCD either horizontal or vertically. The first (and most likely) is a small crack in the display wafer. LCD stands for Liquid Cristal Display. They are very fragile and can be easily damaged if dropped. I broke one in my pants pocket.

\015\012The second would be if a pin on the ribbon cable (to the LDC wafer) was not making good contact. If you disassemble the camera it is possible to clean the contacts using contact cleaner (or alcohol). Only attempt this is you are willing to replace the camera if you don’t put it back together properly.

DSC-W70 The camera seems to work as it should however when I take a picture, the resulting image on the LCD screen is distorted. By this I mean that lines appear horizontally across the screen. The only time that it works well is when I take it out of normal mode and set it to Multi Burst. However with Multi Burst, the flash does not work.
