Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

My sony cybershot camera got wet. After capturing the screen displays fine horizontal lines over the picture. Does it need repair?


Answers :

Hi,

Sounds like it is not terminal, perhaps some damp has got in where it shouldn't be. I would place the camera in a warm environment (say an airing cupboard) for a few days and see if this clears the problem. I'm assuming that the pictures taken are ok once downloaded, and it is only the LCD screen on the camera that is a problem.

... please don't put the camera in an oven!! A warm place with low humidity is best.

: ))

Cheers,
Ripface.

No image on LCD screen, only irregular lines of varied coloring. When picture is snapped, it is of these lines--no image. Help. Details: I turned the camera to shooting mode but it does not display the image of what I want to shoot, but just a series of horizontal lines. If I take the shot, it shows the lines which were displayed on the LCD screen. If switched to playback mode, previously shot images show up fine. I checked the batteries; they were fine.

Olympus X-42 Camera - the screen has gone white (with a few thin green/purple vertical lines). When I switch on the camera the screen is white, there is no picture or menu displayed. I have checked by plugging it into the tv, and it takes pictures and goes into menus fine - it just doesn't display anything on camera screen. I have only had the camera for a week, and have not stored it anywhere humid. Is there anything I can do to fix, or do I just have to take it to get repaired?

I have had my camera for not even a year and it recently started having this problem. Whenever I take a picture, the object will look fine in the display, but when I take the picture it gets horizontal lines across the picture.

I believe I got salt water spray on my camera this past summer and now it is having various problems that come and go. Foremost is most pictures are washed out of color and there is horizontal lines in the pictures. Sometimes shutter doesn't open or close. Flash won't pop up. Running slow. Is this worth repairing or should I buy a new camera?

Lens inoperative? When camera is turned on, there is no image on the screen, just flashing horizontal lines.

What would be the approximate cost? Thank you.

I have purple horizontal lines across my screen when i try to take a picture. When i snap the picture that is all i get. The memory card seems to be fine in that all the pix stored on it look fine when i check on the camera. What could be wrong? The only thing of note is that i had the memory card alone in my cold car for a few days . I tried putting a new memory card in the camera and that didn't change anything either with the purple horizontal lines.

There are lots of white lines on my photos. It doesn't seem to matter what the setting is, flash or not, and I've replaced the batteries which are new.
