My DSC-T7 is reading an error message of E61:10 and is blurred at all times, though the flash is working. Do you think has to do with the CCD sensor as well? I live abroad ... ideas for getting it fixed? Can this be a do it yourself project? What do you think this will cost? Thanks!

Re: re: CCD Sensor
Base on my experience with Sony CCD's, if it was the CCD, you would have NO picture. Odds are that the problem is the auto-focus circuit or the focus motor/gear. Either way it's highly unlikely that a shop could fix it, let alone trying it yourself. It's usually easier to just replace the Lens Block, but unfortunately, that usually runs around $150....for the PART.

In DSCT1 Camera, the E:61:10 error message indicates a Self diagnostic message. This message can be clearly identified by the help of a Sony Authorized service technician. Each of these codes indicates the symptoms and resolutions of the Camera. The E error code indicates the internal hardware malfunction with the Camera. This issue is not related to the CCD Image Sensor replacement. Try the steps given below to check if the issue can be resolved.
·Turn off the camera.
?·Remove the battery pack.
?·Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
?·Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
?·Reinsert the battery pack.
?·Turn on the camera.
Also, try resetting the Camera back to factory default by pressing the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object. The RESET button is located at the lower right side of the control buttons.
Please make sure that the Camera is turned ON before you reset it.
Hey lmcconnell, Error code E:61:00 means the camera has encountered a malfunction, and you should try initializing the camera back to the factory settings. Instructions on how to do this are on page 51 of your user manual, and I have included a link to a PDF download of your manual if you no longer have it. If this doesn't work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps! http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DSCT7 Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead.

This is ether focusing motor itself or CCD sensor is starting to malfunction. In either case it should go to a repair outfit. If I am right and it is a CCD sensor you can have it repaired ( sensor module replaced see enclosed pic ) FREE OF CHARGE BY SONY.
Not everyone is happy with this camera, though most are.
It could be that your camera has developed a fault with the sensor, and I would suggest that you hurry and use the warranty if it's not over yet.
One thing that users of this camera agree on, is that the flash is poor. It's range is very limitied, and the camera just isn't built for indoor/night shooting. If you have the subject within the flash range, which I would guess should be around 2 meters, then it should be ok, otherwise it's not known to give good results.
If it gives poor results in full daylight, and the settings are default, then I would guess your camera developed a sensor problem.
Try this test:
Mount the camera on a tripod or set it on a secure base and use the self timer to trip the shutter. Doing this will totally eliminate any possibility of camera shake causing blurriness.
If the picture is still blurred then there might be a problem with the AF but if it isn't blurred then the problem is either camera shake OR subject movement (or both).
I don't own a T7,but I have the P150 and S40. All these small Sony digicams have something in common;Sony uses 1/40 as the default flash shutter speed in low light conditions,while other makers use 1/60.You are more likely to get a blurry picture compared to other digicams you have previously used,unless you hold the camera steady (two hands).
The other thing about these cameras is their lack of weight, coming in at a mere 134 g/4.7 oz. Light weight means you must hold the camera steady (two hands) or risk camera movement when you press the shutter. Again, the tendency with a small,light weight camera is to hold it with one hand while you take a picture,this leads to blurry pictures.
The review for this camera is positive; a "Dave's Pick." - Just remember the flash range is only 5ft / 1.6m.
