Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera ?

The screen is wavy and the photos come out wavy - there is nothing more to say except when I took it to my Sony dealer he told me that it was a problem with 8 cyber-shot models and there had been a recall by Sony in the past. Can I send my camera back to them? If so, what address please?


Answers :

Sony produced a huge number of 5MP sensors with a design fault which often caused premature failure. These sensors were fitted to many camera brands. The fault which you have described is one of those typical to a failed sensor.

There was a "soft recall" whereby customers who complained were offered a free repair; those who didn't complain or who simply got misinformed by dealers missed out.

Unfortunately, you've now missed your chance: Sony stopped offering the repairs a few months ago as all affected cameras were now past their design lifespan anyway. Your camera is about six years old now and was only designed to last five years, in common with almost all digital cameras.

Digicams offer many advantages over film, but the added complexity means that they simply cannot last as long as some film cameras.

Sadly, your camera is now scrap as it's uneconomical to pay for a professional repair and replacing the sensor is definitely not a DIY task.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I hope that you have still found my posting to be of some use. All I ask in return is that you return the favour by rating my answer.

I am in France on vacation from USA and am really bummed as My Sony Cybershot DSC-W370 will not close. The display says "Turn the Power off and on again". I've done this several times with no results. I am staying at a remote villa with no phone service. Can you help me via email? I have had many Sony cameras in the past and have preferred this to my Canon since it is so hard to carry. As I recall previous similar problem was resolved by a reset hole I pushed a pin into but I see no reset

My Sony Cybershot DSC-T70 won't turn on.? I have a Sony Cybershot camera model DSC-T70. It is a little over a year old. The camera takes a Rechargeable lithium ion battery (D type NP-BD1).

RE: The CCD has failed - this WAS covered by a recall, but has now lapsed and repair is chargable. I took my camera in to a Sony store a couple of years ago and showed them this problem and was not advised that there was a recall. I was told that it would cost a couple of hundred dollars to fix it, so I decided not to. Now I am told that the recall has expired. I feel cheated out of a mandatory repair job.


I just spoke with a Sony representative who confirmed that the recall has expired. He said it would cost me $172.00 to get my camera "up and running". ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera
