Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera
This camera has not been used very much. Now when trying to take a picture on the viewfinder you see horizontal stripes. You can view pictures already on memory. Wolf's Camera says the repair is $289. I am seeing references on-line to a recall that expired Oct. 2. Is there a contact person or phone number at Sony to see if they will cover this? How were owners supposed to be notified? This was was purchased by a school system.
Try removing the battery and using a known good one. It may take several tries. I got this from Sony tec support liv on line. Good luck it worked for me.
