Re: dsc 717

Sounds like CCD sensor not working properly ( playback is always fine with images captured properly and sometimes the video will work fine too but 'noisy'image in normal capture mode ) and is a very common problem with this model. You are fortunate though because Sony replaces the faulty sensor free of charge, so phone them and inquire.

DSC-S600 preview pix fine, but on computer they are blue

On digital cameras this is normally because the white balance is set incorrectly, go into the menu and select auto white balance this should correct it unless there is a faulty with the camera.

Cyber Shot DSC-T1, Possible CCD Problem

When ccd imager is defective, picture result on still image and video get bad in either cases.
Your camera problem is some thing different and hardware failure is possible like data processing IC but in any case, digital processing board has to be replaced and I'm sure its price would be above and over the camera worth.
You can give try by removing and plugging back the flexible wire board ( ribbon) of lens and ccd imager attached to circuit board. Be careful when handling as flexible wire board can be damaged easily.
Thank you.

Reset in the menu ... RESET ALL or something like that will return the setting back to factory.

Hello, posted by clowrie When I take a photo (doesnt matter if I am nusing flash or not) the photo is all white washed and there are fine lines along the entire picture. Does any one have any suggestions for what may be the issue? Comment by clowrie, Because of your help I was able to findout that Sony is aware of the CCD problem and is reparing the problem for free. Thanks so much for the help.

Grainy Pictures

With the iso set on auto mode it will change depending on the light and anything above iso 200 is very bad on this camera i know have the 717 and it does a lot better but if you can set the iso yourself and take it off auto allways use 100 or 200 for low grain.
