Your lens is off by a gear or two, you need to have the lens repaired. see my solution for the W55 if you can DIY.

My pictures are suddenly coming out in a pink or blue color


Hi,

If you see this color distortion on your pictures as well as on your screen then sounds like your lens sensor is going bad and you will need a replacement CCD. Talk to your sony rep to see if
its still under warranty.

My dsc-t70 had diet coke spilt on it. pictures are bright+white.


I'm afraid so.
I understand that you cleaned the lens (externally accessible elements)?
In theory fixing this might be a matter of stripping the camera and cleaning it up (preferably with isopropyl alcohol), but this is fairly fiddly and it's easy to make things worse.
In any case, liquid spillage onto any camera might cause unpredictable effects. I noticed that coke spill is often not as bad as water as coke doesn't corrode the tracks on logic boards as rapidly and instead turns into "sticky goo". However, due to its stickiness it often causes various mechanical issues. Light distortion could be caused by the shutter stuck on open. Well, in any case, unless you are happy to tinker with your camera and completely strip and clean it, I can only suggest ebaying it for parts. Even broken t70s still fetch good prices.
Good luck,
Raf

Sony a100 distortion dots - Im getting several


If these are single pixels on the LCD screen, they are normal. From pg. 8 of the user's guide:

"The LCD monitor is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD monitor. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the images in any way. "

This may also be helpful.

"images may trail across the LCD monitor in a cold location. This is not a malfunction. When turning on the camera in a cold location, the LCD monitor may become temporarily dark. "

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.
