Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P5 Digital Camera
My camera shows shaky purple horizontal lines on the LCD screen before a photo is taken.
After I take a photo, a lot of red horizontal lines show up.
I've called Sony and this issue is not ongoing for other customers.
Sony will NOT repair free of charge the affected product where it is caused by the image sensor as I recently read on another posting about the CCD failures of this camera.
What seems to be the actual problem and how can I fix it without having to send it to Sony for flat rate of $195?? I could just buy a new camera for that price, huh..
It is the CCD and it is a defect, no fix that is economically feasible unless you get a parts cam of Ebay and make one good one. Too bad Sony will not fess up to this model as they have with some other "newer" models like the F717 as it has really put a cloud over the post consumer digital camera market.
