    DSC-T1 intermittent problem with grainy screen when shooting picture. VERY pronounced horizontal flicker, especially on top half of screen. Pictures often are fuzzy (perhaps due to distraction right before pressing the shutter and resulting camera movement?) This grainy screen and flicker problem will be consistent for awhile and then seemingly go away, only to begin again. Camera is 3+ years old and problem began 3 months ago.

Just in case this applies to you or anyone else. I found that there is a common issue with some Sony cybershot cameras. Either the picture image is messed up, or the image is totally black.

I had my camera (DSC-T1) for close to 4 years and only recently did it start behaving badly. I used it a lot and am surprised it only now had this problem suddenly while we were on vacation taking some pics. It worked one second, and suddenly the next time I went to take a shot it had a problem. My camera turned on, but the image was black, and I was happy to find that Sony is willing to fix it for free - ACCORDING TO THEIR WEBSITE, SONY'S DEADLINE FOR REPAIRS IS SEPT 2008: see http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/sony-konica-minolta-cameras.html and Sony's website re: recall repair http://esupport.sony.com/perl/news-item.pl?news_id=161&mdl=DSCT1

Dear Davo Pottso

This has even happen to my camera, i suggest u to ignore this effect. It has been said that in sony cameras a type of Iodine glue is ussed inside which reacts and causes these sort of problems on heating of the camera. My best advice is to keep the camera cool and avoid over heating by continous shots.
