    Well, I just checked a completed auction on eBay that listed that camera as 'just repaired' Here is a quote of their description in that auction:



    I am selling my Minolta Dimage A1. It had a problem with its CCD. I sent it to Sony's repair center, and I
    got it back repaired last week. So currently it is under warranty starting from when Sony sent it back (Jan 28).

    The item number is: 200199070761

    You might wish to contact Sony it would seem...

Blurred LCD screen = Blurred taken picture


Still I think your CCD or CMOS sensor is damaged. The viewfinder, is just a set of lenses, where you can see through. It has no connection with the sensor. These type of camera's also use the sensor to focus. The sensor needs things with some contrast, where it should focus. But when the sensor is not working correct, the camera can't focus, or take a sharp picture. On your screen you just see what the sensor can record. Nothing more, nothing less.
I don't think it is worth repairing the camera, because this will cost more than you pay for a new camera, with better specs.
Sorry I can't help you with this.

No display in viewfinder and LCD


i think you are able too see the video in play back mode. so there is no problem in your LCD.
i think the CCD has got damaged in your CAM. that is why you are not able to view anything in shooting mode.
because CCD is the layer which converts the light falling on it to a electrical signal and shows us as a complete image.

The viewfinder is blank and working only with review option. Since the viewfinder is blank the photo and video is also blank. Is it a firmware software problem.


Its a camera CCD Problem. If the View finder & LCD both showing black then its 100% CCD problem. Let me know Lcd also black? Also make sure lens is not covered by any thing.

Camera won't focus


I think you're camera has had it. You could try the Toshiba web site follow links for support and downloads to see if there's a firmware upgrade which may solve the issue.

I've checked the specifications and I wouldn't spend anything on repairing it. I'm afraid its just not worth the outlay. You could probably get a good camera with a higher specification second hand for less than an hours repair bill.

S1IS canon camera


Hi,

Apparently the vendor-supplied CCD image sensor used in this Canon digital camera may cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all.

To determine if the CCD (image sensor) is working properly, follow these steps:

1. Insert a memory card with known good images on it into the camera.

2. Power the camera on to the Playback mode.

3. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel, and observe
the LCD.

a. If the images are displayed properly, please proceed to step
four.

b. If the images are not displayed, or a "NO IMAGES" message
appears, please ensure that the memory card contains known good images.

c. If the card contains known good images, and the issue persists
with a second memory card, the camera will require service.

4. Switch the camera to the Camera mode. You may use any shooting mode
(i.e. Auto, Manual).

5. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel.

6. Point the camera at a well-lit scene and observe the LCD and/or
viewfinder. If the scene the camera is pointed at appears on the LCD
and/or viewfinder, the CCD is operating properly. If the LCD and/or
viewfinder remain black, the camera requires service.

Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will
repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned
malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair.



Regards.

Nothing in viewfinder or on screen


Same thing happened to me. Seems to be 'common' although Sony says they have no recall on the CCD. Look around the forum and you will find others with the same problem.

Is it possible to use the lcd in stead of the viewfinder


No, since the camera is a DSLR, there is no way for the CCD sensor to have an image until you take a picture. The shutter covers the sensor until you actually take the shot.

LCD kaput - anyone know of a panasonic recall?


The panasonic camcorder does not use the Sony CCD element. If the small viewfinder is showing the camera video, there's nothing wrong with the CCD imager. We have had numerous problems with the switch that controls the activation of the large LCD and the backlight inverter that powers it. When you open the LCD the small viewfinder should power down to conserve battery power. The large LCD should then illuminate, if not, shine a flashlight at the surface of the LCD and notice if the video is present, if so, the backlight or LCD harness is defective.
