Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Upper part of pictures is black

My F717 workt proparly, untill some days ago when the camera started recording some strange deformed blue lines on the pictures ... and after that about 1/5th of the recording turned black (the upper part of the picture) the picture right under the black part shows also some deformities and there a small coloured line ranging from red to blue between the black and the picture. when you use the camera in photo - mode you can't really see on the display something special, but if you look closely you can see a small difference in the image upper part and the normal working part ... it's only if you take the picture (press the shutter) that the black turns in. i also noticed that when i zoom in the black upper part gets smaller ... when i completely zoom in (with digital zoom) the black has disappeared and you can only see some slight deforming in the upper part of the picture ... please help me if you know a solution to this problem because i really would like taking pictures with it again ... it's such a great camera best regards simon

This seems to be a CCD problem or associated circuits. Sony Support Team should know about this - may mean a camera callback or swap from Sony.

Are you saying the lcd screen works but the pictures are just distorted or the screen doesn't work at all, even when you try to go into the menu. I think your "friend" is to blame here...your problems have nothing to do with changed settings.

I have a sony DSC-F717, and when i take pictues, the white colors on the image come out pink and other types the picture has like a green shadow over the picture.


Symptoms shows its start-up of CCD Imager problem in DSC-F717 and in few days, CCD Imager will not give picture data to camera circuit. CCD Imager is part which converts image in electronic signal and that signal / data goes to camera circuit for further process.
Sony will repair CCD Imager problem in DSC-F717 free of cost. Check Sony CCD Imager Support for details.

Couldn't see them, but if they were black, or distorted, or strange colors, read on. If your pictures looked strange, it's probably due to a defective CCD imager. If so, Sony should fix this for you for free under their recall advisory, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.

Distorted Viewfinder Only In PIcture Mode


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.
