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

My photos now seem to have a lot of vertical lines when downloaded. It's like peaks for each strength of colour distorting the picture.


Answers :

The ccd imaging sensor has failed. The only solution is a new sensor, but it costs far more than the camera is now worth and is absolutely not a DIY fitting job.

The Sony 5MP sensor in your model is now infamous for this fault and was fitted to many other makes and models. The problem was so bad that there was a "soft recall" in place whereby owners who complained were offered free repairs. Unfortunately you've now missed the boat as the scheme ended last September for all but a very few models and even those will stop this month. The scheme ended simply because all affected models had passed their minimum design lifespan; your camera dates back to 2004 and had a five year design life expectancy. Any ccd failure after that is therefore no longer regarded as being premature.

Although there was a manufacturing fault with the Sony 5MP sensor causing widespread premature failure, it's the nature of all similar devices even to this day that some will fail early. The faults with your sensor are now well understood and improvements have been made, but it's still a fact that very few digital cameras last more than five or six years before suffering a major fault. Even today, top of the line Nikon SLR's only have a two year manufacturer's warranty and most other manufacturers only offer a single year.

It's worth bearing in mind when deciding how much to spend when you replace your camera; if more camera buyers behaved in this way it would force the manufacturers to seriously address the poor reliability which plague these products. Vehicle manufacturers learnt their lesson a while back and as a result it's now possible to buy a new car for less than the cost of a flagship professional digital camera: it's vastly more complex than any camera but can still come with a seven year comprehensive manufacturer warranty as standard.

Image distortion I am having trouble when I download pictures onto my computer. The images look fine on LCD but once downloaded have either distorted color (streaks of green or other colors) or they have lines running through which make the images not aligned correctly. Each time I download pictures from the camera a greater quantity of pictures seem to be distorted and corrupted.

Hi Merry XMas! I have a problem with my camera lately and it seems like a software problem not sure.

Pink tinge When I shoot a picture in bright sunlight, the picture always has a pink tinge to it.

Hi there. A friend decided my computer is too slow so deleted some programs. It seems that the program for my PC to "see" the Panasonic DMC-FZ5 has gone.

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).
