Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera ?

My screen colors are corrupted such that blues are green, reds are electric blue, yellows are lavender-pink. Pictures taken since this happened are OK when transferred to PMB/other picture program. Do not remember any trauma to camera, but it had misbehaved a few times before by staying white for some time or showing flashing lines across image.

Hi,

This\015\012 is a common problem on this set. This is either due to faulty CCD \015\012sensor or faulty LCD screen. Look at the previous recorded images or \015\012videos. If you see the same white lines in previous saved images or \015\012video's , it would be suggestive of LCD screen unless it is a faulty CCD\015\012 sensor.

If that is LCD panel, it is not worth repair.If that is \015\012CCD sensor, then you could call up Sony to check whether CCD sensor\015\012 of your model is under recall or not.

Read an old article :-

If it is not under recall, try to get some good replacement or repair at low cost unless invest in new camera.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My Panasonic DMC-TZ3 lens cover gets stuck and won't open completely. It has been getting worse. If I CAREFULLY assist it, it will fully open. I don't remember any trauma, such as dropping the camera. I've had it almost a year and a half and the problem started about 6 months ago. I am going on a big trip in a week and need a reliable camera. Thanks! Bradley

I know this has a simple solution, but this is my first digital and I am a litlle "slow". When I review my pictures on the camera, certain areas of the pictures flash 'black.' Sometimes the black patches are across a face and other times it is around other objects. I do not remember it doing this when I first started using it.

This is generally considered a bad thing, and the camera is warning you. It's only a warning, since the camera d ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Blurry images I purchased about a year ago a new Panasonic DMC-TZ4. And up until this point, I was in love with this camera. However, just recently, sometimes when I turn the camera on, the screen is showing images to be out of focus and blurry. All the settings are correct. Some times it stays like this for hours. Other times, I can turn the camera off and then back on and the blurriness goes away. Twice the camera has frozen and I had to take the battery out. And some times when I turn the cam

During download of photos to my PC, the camera switches itself off and the download stops. This has never happened before. I have had the camera for 18 months and downloaded many photos from it.

After cleaning the extended lens barrel each time it extended, I found it would open further each time. It nows extends fully, but still retracts immediately thereafter. At the time the screen shows the green Optio screen for a split second and then shows an out of focus shot of whatever the camera is pointing at, bef
