Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
I just got my camera a week ago, but since this morning the display has been so very dark i can't see anything but outlines, and it's all purple. the pictures turn out dark and purple too. the lcd screen still works fine, i can view all of the old pictures and videos i took just fine.
Hello tonyj111, If your old pictures look fine on the display, then the problem is related to the ccd sensor itself. The purple color is displayed because of a problem in the signal transmision from the ccd sensor to the camera's main processor. This is done using 3 channels one for each primary color (RGB red green blue). If the connector to the sensor is broken, or got out of place (loose) because some mechanic shock or symilar, the data processing woun't come out right. It is purple because your camera's processor mess up blue and red signals therefore resulting same purple instead of blue or red colours. In order to fix this you will need to either send the camera to a service center to have those connections checked (if your camera is still in warranty you will want to do this) or ask me for further instructions if you wish to try to dissasemble the camera yourself. In either way the problem is fixable and in most probabilities a cheap fix will work. Good luck
