Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-U10 Digital Camera

Cyber-shot U on its deathbed

I have a Cyber-Shot U, probably one of the first to come out 3-4 years ago. As of late the photos are all purplish in color, blurred, etc. and I was wondering if there's any chance to save the old guy. Or should I just shoot it in the head and put it out of misery? Any chance that the problem could be in the memory card? I have any extra someplace. Thanks for the advice in advance.

Very good chance to save the old guy, and for free to boot (I'll take it if you dont want it :-)! This definitely sounds like a defective CCD imager. If so, Sony will fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

From your description the seal in the lens housing has broken down, I would have it assessed by a professional to see if it can be salvaged.

Horizontal lines in the photo, followed by purple hazing and finally black...the CMOS sensor is defective (recalled many years ago) and finally gave out. Your little camera is done, sorry.

Sony cyber-shot dsc-w50

Sounds like you have two problems, both which mean bad news. The clicking could be a broken gear in the lens unit or off track lens.
The colors may be caused from a bad ccd or sensor internally.

Warning signal just before I shot pic


It means there is not enough light and you will probably end up with a blurry photo if you don't use the flash.

Good luck
