LCD Screen "out of sync" Sony Cybershot DSC-P92

After 2 years of use my Sony Cybershot DSC-P92 it jsut failed the LCD Screen by showing constant horizontal lines going from down to up part of the screen as well as vertical line from right to left part of the screen. Image seems like a those old B&W TV's that has the Horizontal and Vertical control in the backplane of the TV that you turn to one or other side and you can see the lineas crossing the screen "out of sync". The issue goes more than the screen it self, because everytime that you shoot a picture the image it is composed within the same lines but in a Still Frame (no movement). Any idea?

    Yes... Let me clarify:

    1) I did take pictures and on the LCD Screen, projecting on TV (using A/V RCA Cable) as well as in the computer the image seems bad

    2) All "words and letters" of all the camera menus, picture, setup, movie etc works perfectly... I mean all the texts are perfectly "freeze" and "readable" over the "unfreeze lens/screen image"

    3) I did RESET the camera, change Bateries, etc

    I hope this can clarify more the problem

I had the same problem with my DSC-P92. I took it to my local stockists and they wanted 200 GBP to repair it. I looked on Sony website and they are repairing free of charge a number of cameras with faulty CCD's. I sent mine to Sony who repaired it free of charge. You have until October 2007 to claim for this though.

    I am pretty sure that the CCD unit of your Camera has a problem. Please do not worry, but contact the nearest Sony Service. If the CCD is the problem Sony will repair it free of charge. This procedure is called Sony recall.

    To be 100% certain please send me the picture to my email arpadk@eunet.yu

I have Sony Cybershot DSC T200 camera. It can take perfect pictures, but I can't see anything in LCD screen as it has colored vertical lines all over the screen. What can be the issue ?

If your pictures taken with the camera are seen when downloaded to the PC, the it is sure that the LCD is faulty or damaged.
The presence of vertical lines show that the processor driver to the LCD has failed. You have confirm cost of the new LCD before it can be decided.

Take the battery out and hold the power button down for 30 seconds.  This will reset the camera.  Put the battery back in and see of camera works properly.  If not, it could be the CCD sensor and Sony may repair it for free.  Call Sony at 800-222-7669.  Might as well give it a shot...a cybershot.
