Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera
My camera intermittantly takes faded pictures with horizontal lines. The image on the LCD is fine until I press the focus button. SONY says this is not the CCD issue. What else could it be?
I think it is the apparture problem. I you open a wide apparture at bright lightsyou get the same defective image. our cam needs repairing of iris control.

Sony at first refused to hear my complaint. They said it was not a CCD problem because the problem was intermittant. Fortunatly the camera was still under warranty, and the technician for the warranty concern confirmed that it was a CCD failure and that they would send it back to Sony for me. I contacted Sony with this informatiion and as soon as they heard "technician" they immediatly issued a repair voucher form and number. I sent a letter with the camera explaining my problems in detail, a CD with the faulty images, and a web link describing the problem. The recall was honored. The camera was repaired free and returned in two weeks. It has not had a problem since.

I have the same problem with my DSC-F717. It started on Christmas eve. I contacted Sony and at first the said it was the CCD and a free repair, but I knew it didn't meet the criteria. The bottom line was that it was gong to cost $211.00 flat fee to repair it. Pleas let me know if you have any luck. PWilder76@aol.com
