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

All my captured images are white. The LCD shows a nice image, also the video works


Answers :

Most likely the shutter is jammed open - the shutter is not used for video or preview, which is why they work OK. Camera will need to be serviced, either shutter repaired, or more likely replaced. May be marginal, as the shutter is part of the lens unit complete! Look out for one with a damaged LCD on Ebay and make one good camera from the two if you are good with a screwdriver !
How weird is this, my T1 has just developed the exact same fault after over 7yrs hard use, cant really complain its been all over the world and in some pretty harsh places.
\015\012Just seems a shame that its died.

\015\012Takes video fine, previews stuff fine, but when you go to take a pic it just takes a really over exposed picture it seems regardless of light levels ????

Black LCD When I took pictures yesterday, each picture looked like it had a white fuzzy covering over it. Now when I turn the camera on the lcd stays black. But when I switch the button from camera to video it works. I also can get the previously taken pictures to show up. I have charged and changed a couple of pairs of batteries.

Blank LCD Hi! I have a Sony Cyber-shot digital camera, DSC-S40 model. I've been using it for two years now. Some months ago I couldn't get a picture from the LCD. It just went white. I can't see a thing. When I shoot the flash goes on and I can also hear the sound that it's capturing some image, but the LCD is still white. It can easily switch ON and OFF. I've even recharged and changed the batteries. It's festive season and I need to capture some memories with my Sony camera. I have misplaced m

Blank lcd I just got a new canon 600D. After playing with it for a while, i turned it off. Then after 5-10 mins i turned it on once again, and opened the lcd screen, but it shows blank(or say black). I can see that the lcd backlit is workeing, but nothing (no content) is displayed. Can this be an issue of low battery ? pressing the shutter button full also not capturing the picture. Flash works though, and optical view finder too, but it does not capture the photo.

Hi, I have a Canon T2i Rebel. When i put the camera in "M" (totally manual), the image doesnt appear in the LCD screen. Everything else works fine in the monitor, but it is as if the lens where covered with the cap. But it´s not, and acutally all the other modes work fine. Only in the manual mode the image doesnt show, and the pictures also appear completely black. The menu shows sometimes something as if the exposure were less than -2, but even though i change the values for everything hig

Nikon Coolpix L18 camera LCD screen only shows jumpy lines of images. Took a test picture and viewed through a card reader to find that it is recording images, so the problem is just in the screen.

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well. But when I go back and review the image on the camera, or off the memory card via my computer the image is distorted. The best way I can describe it is as if the image appears that I took a photo off something on the tv, with a series of horizontal lines running across the image. The video capture seems to work fine though. Can you offer any sug

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off.

White out Every photo I take seems to white out, as if it is letting in to much light. But it is more than this, as it is possible to see white streaking on the image as well. I have also tried taking photos in various manual settings, resulting in the same problem. It seems to be a little better in doors. However when I use video mode the image is normal. This problem first occured on holiday in Singapore - when I took it into a shop out there they said it was probably the heat. But the problem
