DSC W1 dead pixel

Taking some pictures out the airplane window, i'm now noticing a dead pixel on my dsc w1. It isn't the LCD, its a black spot thats visibile when there is a light background. If I remember correctly, some of these cameras have pixel remapping. Does the w1 have this? Any other good ideas? Any help appreciated. thanks

If it has the remapping option, it doesn't say so in the manual. from what I understand, every camera comes already with "dead pixels" and its already remapped so that you won't easily notice it. with time, more pixels drop off and you need to remap it again. Now the thing is, the remapping just makes the dead pixel an average of its surounding pixels, and there are photo editing programs that do the same thing, have the remapping option. so basicaly what i'm saying is that if you're out of warranty dont be in a rush to get it fixed. cheers

I found an online manual for your camera. Page 84 talks about the USB Mode Normal with the 4 dots underneath. It also show a troubleshooting area for this and it is on page 96. Hopefully this will get your camera working right again. Here is the link to the pdf manual.

Viewing is fine, taking pictures is not

This sounds like what started happening with my camera a few weeks ago. I found that turning the LCD screen off during picture-taking allows me to take pictures. I then have to go into review mode to look at the pictures I took using the LCD screen. Definitely not a great fix. I'm trying to locate a firmware upgrade that may solve it.

DSC-W1 Focus Problems

Try taking some flash pictures (in fairly good light) in Manual Mode @ 1/500sec to rule that out though. Use "Center" or "Spot" autofocus. If you don't have a tripod, then use the self timer for these tests. If camera shake can be ruled out, and the camera has focusing problems even in bright light, then that unit is trashed. Sorry to hear that the Sony service center couldn't fix it right the first time. Demand a replacement.

Dark spots in Sony W1

I think they are from condensation on the lens, or something like that. I've had them with my W1 too at times, but mostly when there is moisture in the air and I'm taking pictures of the sky.
