Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

12 Answers

Black screen The camara was working fine a couple days ago, but now when i turn the camara on, the lcd screen is black. I can't see anything, hence I can't take pictures. Also, when i take a picture (although screen is black and i can;t actually see what i'm shooting), the picture review shows my past photos in perfect color except for my "test shot". Any suggestions? Thanx.

    I've got the same black screen of death. Menu Items show up.

    BOUGHT THE CAMERA SEVERAL YEARS BACK. I used in the Philippines for two months and the pictures were all fine. When I came back to the USA, the screen went blank after a few weeks. The menu is still there and I can also preview shots in the Philippines. When I take new pictures with the black screen, nothing is recorded although the camera seems to function.
    Now I'm back in the Philippines.

I have just chatted with a somebody from Sony support, who directed me to this site:
https://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/specialrma.do

There you can place your order for a free repair in the US. The offer is available so far until March 30, 2009. You are only responsible for the shipping (15 usd).

Good luck!

Thank you, thank you guys - all who posted about the free repair on the TSC-1 camera. And for the ready phone number. It was a breeze and Sony agreed to have mine shipped in for repair. Looks like the CCD issue as well.

This is so helpful! I live in Spain, the camera is there but I am still in the US... so I will just need to find the customer service contact number in Spain and will inquire for this. I was already losing hope about my camera.... I really hope there's also a local service area in Spain.

Anyhow, I called the US customer service and they did verify to me that this is a known issue that is covered by Sony's free service outside warranty.

I can't the Support announcement on the Sony site... can someone please post the link?
Thanks.

Sony has repaired my cybershot. Was a CCD fault. To "Guest" who posted on Apr 6, 2008. The point is that the repair of this fault is offered to all owners "Out of Warranty"or not, as this is a known fault. It is on the sony website under support / announcements in writing. Look it up print it out and tell them to fix your camera just like they have for everyone else around the world. AD (New Zealand)

High, John again. I just got off of the phone with the folks at Sony. They said that it was an image sensor problem and are sending me an address label to send the camera in for repair. (at no charge).
Their number is (888) 476-6972. The call took several minutes, so get comfy and be patient.

I found on the sony website under support / announcements (for sony dsc-t1 and some other models). There is a known fault with a component that causes this "black screen". Sony have offered an out of warranty, free repair through local service centres. As yet I have not contacted my local centre as it's Sunday (closed). But am hoping this is still applicable. Hope this is helpfull to all concerned.

Cannot see what im shooting and on lcd screen,no picture jus black. It shows numbers timer everything else except picture. In play mode everything works fine.


I have 2 xelim camaras. One of which has a piece of some type of cover partially obstructing the view. This camara still displays the time and menus and older pictures. If I take pix now the picture is obscured. The other camara has no picture on the display but when I take a picture it turns out just fine. That camara will need disassembled and a connector hooked back up

Most screens on digital camaras are for aiming the camara and output (displaying the picture) therefore any problems with the screen do not translate to a picture.

Samsungs850 no pic in view finder


This is new. I see that according to the illustration, there is no Optical Viewfinder- thus you need the the screen to compose the images - Is this correct? As this camera is new to you carefully read up the instruction manual - especially the set up routine. If after a day or so you are still in trouble - take it back to the store for replacement. Do not interfere with the camera.
