Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera
I am aware of the class action re: certain SOny CCD sensors but I do not belive that it is what I am experiencing. My F717 began acting strangely a few months ago. I noticed that occasionally when I would switch from the first program mode to playback, the camera would remain in the program (picture taking) mode. By re-switching, it would then go in to playback mode. Now, over the past few weeks the viewfinder and viewscreen is distorted in all modes EXCEPT movie mode. The viewfinder is faulty in two ways. One, it looks like wide bands of distorted color on a black field and taking a pic at this point records the same distorted color bars, OR, the viewfinder appears to be working ok until focus lock engages, then the viewfinder shows and overexposed image. At this point if I take the picture, the resulting image lacks contrast and is riddled with fine, evenly spaced, white horizontal lines. At first the problem would only occur duiring the first few minutes of power up but now it seems permanent
Yes, You are correct, it does not seem to be problem with the CCD. Insted it seems to be with shutter control or apparture control mechanism of the camera. Normaly there is one single cable carring signal to the shutter blade mechanism and the diaphram control. If this cable is damaged it shows the same symptoms as you have described in your mail. Get in touch with an expert camera repairer.
