Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Some images 'cool' some 'warm'

Hi

I have a SONY DSC-V1 and have the same problem as the other posting. He and I are saying that in the viewer and on our computers after taking shots, some or most images are 'warm' or rather orange whereas the very next shot, same lighting, same distance, same subject the image turns out normal or 'cool' without all the orange.

I managed to mess with the NA and EV Settings (NA 1" & +1.3 EV) to get about half the images ti turn out with normal color but still get half the shots very orange or extra red tones turning white to orange, blues to lavendar etc etc.

Any suggestions for settings?

    I found some lighting setting that took away the massive fluxuations. It was in the white balance settings (auto was fluxuating too much) so testing it out, found 3 settings by going into the menu/white balance on back of camera. Must be indoor lighting settings or something but consistent pictures are mine once again.

    Thanks for speedy help, I appreciate it :)

Hi there,

That issue is related to "white balance". Sounds like the camera is not measuring white balance correctly in order to determine the best setting for each shot, and is flipping between correct and incorrect settings, even in the same conditions!

I could go into detail here, but really it is much easier and perhaps better explained with images on many websites. Here is one example:

As for a solution, well obviously the camera is not working as it should, but you could also try setting white balance manually if your camera allows it. The above site tutorial will give you an idea of how to do that and what setting to use.

My Sony Cybershot DSC V1 viewfinder screen very briefly shows the taken image and this then quickly fades to a foggy whiteout which sometimes shows the ghost of the image taken. The same image shows when...


It is possible that the image sensor which is the CCD- charge coupled device is faulty and will need a replacement. However it is important that the OE part is required and so is best to take consensus with Sony spares and service.

Battries run out of power,while camera is turned of.


The batteries on the DSC-V1 will be around five years old now so that's to be expected. You need to replace faulty batteries with genuine and new Sony InfoLithium NP-FC11. Many cheaper "compatibles" exist, but at best they don't last as long and will not give any battery charge indication (they lack the InfoLithium chip) and at worst they can damage the camera.

Unfortunately, genuine batteries are so expensive that you might decide it's time to upgrade, but as the DSC-V1 is such an excellent camera it's not a straightforward decision. Newer = more megapixels, but also = noisier images. 5MP is easily more than enough for prints up to A4 size even allowing for a bit of image cropping.

Hi, when viewing my ldc screen to take a photo its dark, cloudy and fuzzy. I can't view anything.


I have a good news for you. Probably the CCD imager is bad, it could be FREE repaired by SONY service center! Look for your local SONY serv.center.

Next step for the rebirthing of my DSC-V1 ??


Hi Pat,

There is a reset button which is recessed on the underside of the camera, next to the battery cover. You'll need something like an unbent paperclip to press the bottom and it resets the camera back to factory presets. This reset includes setting the the file numbering system back to zero so if it works you'll need to go into the menu and manually set your file and folder numbering to something which won't clash with earlier photos.

The only trouble is that the camera needs to be powered up for the reset to work, so you'll need to plug the charging lead into the camera to power it up.

If this fails, then your camera has sadly become a parts donor.

DSC-V1's in excellent condition regularly appear on auction websites but take care: many will have a CCD just waiting to fail so either ask if it's been replaced by Sony (making sure the seller can supply proof) or get a DSC-V3 which is very similar but does not have the risk of a faulty 5MP CCD. The DSC-V1 is still a better camera though as it handles better and has less image noise.
