Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

Open Question

It takes pictures, but screen shows up white with a black smudge

I'm able to take picture, but the screen will not show anything. It shows up as being white with a black smudge and purple around the edges of the smudge. Does this mean I have a water problem or something? Please help.

The camera will still work fine. The screen is only for framing your pictures and reviewing them. It will be hard to take pictures that way. Just get a new camera. It will be cheaper than repairing the screen.

This is a problem with shutter not fast enough opening to take a picture indoor shows the horizontal lines. In sun light it is too slow and over expose the picture. Not worth the trouble to fix, buy another camera?

?Smudge on lens maybe? Shows up in pictures.


Hi!
Does the smudge changes / mooves as you zoom the lens? If so, the smudge is most likely on the focus lens, if not, there's something on the CCD. In both cases the lens will have to be taken apart and cleaned by a professional. I suggest you contact a local repair shop and see how much they ask for it.

Black smudge line on every digital picture.


It sounds as if you have some sort of foreign object somewhere in the optical path. Check the lens for any obvious signs of dirt, but failing that, it will need to go to a camera specialist for a proper clean. I would not recommend taking it apart and trying it yourself!
