    What does "CCD" mean? The camera is only a year and a half old - they might not have parts for it?

  • patatoaks Nov 19, 2009

    It works occasionally, but mostly it doesn't. Does that still mean it's the "CCD inside"? I find it distressing that this relatively expensive camera didn't last much longer than a disposable, and that it's a "frequent" occurrence.

    Thank you. Can you recommend a good, easy, sturdy longlasting camer for me?

    Thank you for your time. The answer is disappointing, but I'm sure it is correct.

Hi,
This is problem with the CCD inside the unit itself. If the camera is under warranty you can have it serviced and this would be covered. If it isn't under warranty I would consider replacing the camera. As this can be a fairly expensive repair if parts are still available. This is a fairly common occurrence. If you have any other questions please let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

    You can get this camera brand new for 85$ online. This is why I am recommending you just research and purchase a new camera. The camera is out of warranty. So even if you do pay for repairs. Anything could break again at anytime. It is much more worth it to invest your money more wisely. I will be more then happy to assist you further, but pleas reconsider and accept/rate my solution appropriately. the CCD is the imaging unit that actually creates the picture to put it simply its the brain of the camera. This is quite common and unfortunate. but camera technology moves very fast and you can get a comparable/better camera for relatively cheap.
    Thank you,

    Well unfortunately we live in a consumer society. Also technology moves very fast and in a lot of cases quality isn't what it use to be. Also this camera isn't an expensive enough of a camera to validate spending money on repair. You can get a camera that is almost twice as good for around 90$. This is why i always recommend doing a lot of make and model search anytime before making a technology purchase.
    Thank you,
    Lee

    fujifilm and panasonic are rated highest among consumers. Really you will want to look at specific models that meet your needs and then research the model online for possible failures it is prone to.
    Thanks again and please reconsider your rating of my solution.

    Yes I definitely understand your frustration. You may want to consider selling the camera for parts on ebay or craigslist to recoup some of your costs. There are still a lot of good parts on the camera that someone else might find viable. Every little bit helps as they say. Also better for the environment rather then just throwing it away. Someone might re-use some of the parts. There are several for parts already on ebay. If you have any other questions let me know. I am glad you at least have a definitive answer.
    Thank you,
