    My LCD goes white when I take a picture, didnt drop it or anything

  • lance_shaw Jan 18, 2008

    Takes photo and it appears transparent (or white) on the LCD. Downloaded it to my PC and the image is the same, but if you take video, this appears fine. Have upgraded to Firmware V2 with still the same results. Sony want £114.00 to fix it.

I have a Canon PowerShot TX1 and this started to happen 2009/June now it has completely failed 2009/July. I had this camera less than a year and paid $412.00 USD for it. I am so not happy. I am trying to see if I can get it replaced. I will keep you posted.

I've got the same problem. Unfortunately I'm in the UK and the Sony site mentioned here is for N/S America only.

I'll phone Sony UK I think! Thanks for everyone's help!

    Thank you for your support and patronage of Sony products.

    It has come to our attention that a limited number of products, manufactured before March 2004, and incorporating a certain type of image sensor device (CCD), may exhibit the following:

    • When the product is used in camera mode, the LCD panel and/or electronic viewfinder exhibits either a distorted image or no image at all.

    We have determined that this only occurs in a limited number of devices, but may be accelerated if they are exposed to hot and humid environments.

    Until September 30, 2008, Sony will repair, free of charge, affected products exhibiting the above-mentioned symptom where it is caused by the image sensor device. Sony will also cover the cost of shipping and handling from and to addresses within the United States and US Territories for service to correct this issue.
    claim form for reimbursement; all claims must be postmarked by September 30, 2008.

    All the terms of your Sony Limited Warranty continue to apply.

    Follow the steps below to determine if your product may be affected by this issue and require service

I have exactly the same problem. It has to be fixable as when you switch to speed burst mode the first photo is white and the other 3 or 4 are perfect

Sony cybershot dsc-11

The ccd sensor in the t1 is faulty. i've had mine for over 5 years, about 2 years ago, i took a trip to san fran. hoping to snap wonderful pics with my camera. When i arrived i snapped a few pics only to realize later, that all the camera had captured was a white screen. i did some internet searching and found a page, much like this one explaining that the ccd is faulty. i called sony and explained my issue, and they informed me that the ccd is indeed faulty, and that they had a free repair service for it. my camera was fixed for free, and currently is as good as new. the bad news in all of this is that, the free repair service was canceled no more than a few weeks after my incident..... good luck.
