Sony Cybershot DSC-S500 bad photo resolution problem

\015 My camera Sony Cybershot DSC-S500 suddently started to take bad quality pics. The resolution is bad, for example, when I take a picture, the picture is too white, if you zoom in the photo, you can see that there's horizontal lines all over the picture (a horizontal line,same color, no variations in color) and after that line there is a normal pixel line, with pixel's color variations. This is repeated from top to botom of the picture(lets say, "blank horizontal pixel line", "color pixel line with variation in color"...and so on...). This started repently, I was taking pictures with no problems at all, and suddently in that same day this started to happen! Any help is apreciated! Thanks in advance. Pedro\015

Answers :

It happens to me too. My Sony DSC -S500 is very old also bad resolution happens . It is 7 years now. and replacing it would be hard for me.
Electronic shutter in lens mechanism got bad and you need to replace complete lens assembly of DSC-S500 camera.
\015\012Of course new lens assembly would cost more then camera worth so best option is to buy new camera.

I have a Sony Cybershot dsc-s950. It will not transfer any of the photos I take now to the computer. The card is not full and when I take the battery out to reset it that still does not solve the problem. The photos are displayed in the camera but they will not transfer. The USB cable looks ok and the port is not damaged as far as I can tell. Any suggestions?

My camera (Sony DSC-T100) is about 3 years old. It has worked perfectly in that time but recently, outdoor photos show a lot pink where it does not belong (sky, side walks, etc.). Indoor pictures still look great, with or without flash. Sounded similar to some of the bad CCD discussions I have seen, but my camera seems to have been built after that problem was supposedly fixed by Sony. I tried calling the number (866-703-7669) I have seen in several postings, but it does not seems to work.

Sony DSC-W100 I own a sony dsc w100 and it has been taking great photos. Unfortunatly I switched it on today and it no longer seems to be a ble to focus. I have cleaned the lens and the little circular piece of glass (think this bit measures distance for focus) but my photos are still blurred. The camera seems to permenantly have a little icon saying 'saf' in the bottom left corner of the screen. I wonder if this icon is the key to the problem and what it means? Is it a safe mode and if so how d

I have a problem with my sony cyber-shot dsc T-3. Everything is all right except that there is probably a problem with the lense as the image (on the screen when I want to take a photo or film) is not right (it is pink, dark with lines on it). It is not a problem with the screen, because I can look at my photos / videos which were done before this problem happened. I think it is because I tried to use the camera in a hospital (I had a baby last week) when I was in a surgery room. Maybe too magne

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change anything. This is one of four digicams I own (also a Nikon D90, SONY DSC F717, and a Canon) and I like the W150 for some purposes because it is compact and has a viewfinder, not just a screen.
