Sony F828 taking weird lined shots


I have had a F828 for 4 years now. It has worked GREAT. Yesterday as I was doing product photography [on a tripod] the picture that I take comes out too light with horizontal lines all across it is missing a section of fie or something...What can I do and where can I take it for repair, beside Sony corp....?

    I have the same problem and I noticed that it only happens when the zoom is greater than 2.8X (about 90mm). When it happens, I don't hear the shutter click, so I know the picture will come out lined/over exposed. It sounds like the shutter gets stuck when the zoom is greater than 2.8X. Any idea of how to unstick the shutter? For wide angle to 2.8X, it works fine!

    I have the same problem. There are horizontal lines at all zoom settings and the images are washed out. Camera's meter readings are too high (it is using 1/2000 at f8 for sunny areas in P and auto mode). Surprisingly, videos are recorded OK.

Sounds like the chip has gone! I would take it to a repair shop and get a quote before fixing it. Could be that it would make more sense to replace the camera rather than replace the expensive CCD chip in it, especially if it's done a lot of work as the shutter, or aperture could fail in the near future! sorry!

How can i take black & White photos with my camera? Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828

The DSC-F828 doesn't have a black&white mode. However, just about any photo editing program will have the ability to convert color photos to black&white. Doing so on a computer will give you much better control over things like brightness and contrast than you would get if you just let the camera do it.
