Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera

3 Answers

My sony camera seems to have a defect

When I take pictures, the only time they look remotely natural colored is in direct day light. Otherwise, they turn out very pink/red tinted. The flash may be the problem? Also, sometimes there are vertical lines on some photos I think it's on a certain setting.

Did this person sell me a broken camera?

It a CCD problem , well its damaged in this case .This is the symptoms of it . The ccd's are generally expensive to buy and install by sony so you should return it or buy a nikkon or cannon camera those give good results.

Looks like it- this is a CCD problem.
Check out the Sony support website for further advice/info.
Sometimes particular models are subject to a recall because of a known fault- that would be fun if you get a new camera -on the cheap.

Anything falling out of the inside of your camera is not a good sign, since it is new, I would have it exchanged as soon as possible for being defective.

Pink and Black in natural light

It sounds like the light sensor on the camera is malfunctioning. Try cleaning the sensor. If the senor doesn't work at all it will not be able to tell when the camera is operationg in bright light. Kind of like having your eyes dialated and walking outside on a sunny day.

I have an LCD TV. All of a sudden the picture colour has gone wierd. The best way to describe it is that it is similar to either a colour negative or one of those scientific 'false colour' images. This...

TFTs can produce a wide array of colors, but it takes an enormous number of transistors to make up a display, and a problem with any one of them creates a defective pixel on the screen. Typically this shows up as a bright spot on a dark background, caused by a damaged TFT failing to turn off a pixel. Most active matrix displays contain a few bad pixels, but a few bad pixels are not going to have much of an impact on the overall picture.
The properties of liquid crystal material can create problems with viewing angle effects, causing the image to darken, disappear, or reverse the dark and light tones when the viewer is not directly in front of the display (kind of like looking at the negative of a photo). The light bulbs make LCDs heavier than the plasma TVs (though they are still lightweights compared to CRT televisions.
Benefits of LCD TVs include a picture that can't burn in and doesn't deteriorate over time. Because of their flat-panel nature, placement options are plentiful, optimizing the cool factor over standard TVs

Red vertical lines/no picture

Hi there. Contact sony service centre directly and ask them about replacing the ccd. I have a vx2100 which did exactly the same thing. Sony admits that there was a problem with the ccd's used in these cameras and replaced them for free, maybe the same for your camera. good luck

Shoots blank (dark) pictures after switching on.

This is a known design defect in the cameras and Sony is repairing them, even if your warranty is expired.

see this for Konica Minolta's official statement:

Focusing problem

Your camera model was included in the general recall issued last year for the CCD factory defect. Here's a link to the announcement, you can also see a screenshot there for comparison - If for some reason sony tells you that it's not the same problem with your camera - it could still be a CCD defect, or the camera's main PCB. Try not to take a no for an answer and get it fixed through sony. Good luck

Pictures reddish or orange

Although normal room lights (tungsten lights) appear white to our eyes, their light is actually much "warmer" than daylight, giving a reddish or orange color to pictures. This happens with digital and film cameras. To prevent or lessen this reddish or orange color: If your digital camera has a selectable White Balance mode (check your camera's User's Guide) and you are not using the camera or external flash, set the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" light. If your pictures are reddish even when you use the camera flash or external flash, the room lighting is overpowering the flash. Try setting the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" and continue to use the flash. If your camera does not have a selectable White Balance mode, use the camera flash or external flash when taking pictures in lighting that makes your pictures turn out reddish or orange. If you can, turn down or turn off one of the room lights (without making the room too dark), or move your subject so that it is not being hit directly by the room lights. If you can, when taking pictures in the daytime, try opening any drapes that might be covering windows. Letting in natural daylight improves the color quality of the lighting.
