The coulor is is like stripes

You haven't stated a make or model so it's impossible to give you a specific answer, but what you have described is typical of a failed ccd imaging unit.

The confirmation is that if you can display pictures taken before the fault occurred just fine then it's definitely the ccd. If all pictures are affected then it's the LCD display or the display driver circuitry.

Assuming it's the ccd then fixing it requires a new ccd unit to be fitted: depending upon the age, make and model of your camera this may be a free warranty repair, a free repair under a product recall scheme, or an expensive and uneconomic repair which effectively consigns your camera to the scrapheap. As you didn't mention the make and model it's impossible to state which option applies to your camera, but in every case it's definitely a professional repair only.

Please take a moment to rate my answer or if you have further questions regarding my reply post a follow-up comment instead and I will respond when I'm next online (I'm in London, England, so may also be in a different time zone to you).

We have a Minolta Dimage A1 the CCD is broken and we want to get it replaced, a website said that we could do it for free but that was in 2005 and now we dont know what to do.

It's a faulty 5MP Sony CCD and there was a massive problem with them failing due to a manufacturing defect. Sony issued a "soft recall" on their own cameras whereby customers complaining of the fault outside of the warranty were being told to return the camera to Sony for a free repair. I sent two back last year which I'd bought in 2004 and they still repaired them free (it would have been cheaper for them to send me newer, later models in exchange!)

Minolta (later Konica Minolta) had a similar arrangement but have now been taken over by Sony, they are honouring some claims for Konica Minolta branded products, but not for Minolta products. I understand that this is both for practical purposes as the additional spare parts needed when the sensor is replaced are not readily available and also because the Minolta products affected have all now reached the end of their original design lifespan.

In short, you've left it too late and should have pursued the problem at the time it occurred.

Good, used A1's typically sell for £40-£50 in the UK but unless they've had a replacement sensor fitted under warranty are a big risk. Don't accept the seller's assurance that the sensor has been replaced unless they can show the sales docket. A2's have the 8MP sensor which did not have the same problem and have a far better viewfinder go for around £80-£100. Prices are somewhat lower in North America so repairs are clearly not cost effective.

Finxpix s5000 display has black/purple/pink lines

There was a recall (free repair) for the Finepix S5000 from Fuji.
It affected the ccd-sensor of many cameras.
It does depend on the serial number of your camera.
Email them and give them your camera details.
You might get it repaired.
They do not sell any ! spares .

Try them

Fuji s20 pro failed ccd, where can i get a replacement ccd from? how much would it cost regards steve

A little research shows me that Fuji has undergone an extensive repair recall for several Fuji models because of failed CCDs. My S20 Pro just lost it's ccd as well. For some reason it looks like the S20 was not covered in the free repair offer by Fuji. Has anyone else had a CCD problem with their S20

LCD screen went dead

The problem is a bad CCD inside the camera. I have 3 bad ones in my classroom. Sony was providing free service for some of their other models but failed to provide service (recall) on these models. I think it is important to contact Sony at 1-866-703-7669 and ask them why they are not providing support for this model since it has to do with a bad chip inside the camera. Sony should stand behind their consumer products and keep in mind that some people who use the consumer brands also use or recommend the professional brands to organizations like WEVA and others. If they do not support the consumer line products, will they support the more expensive industrial or professional products? Let's go Sony...fix these problems...there are too many of these cameras which have gone bad to say that it is not a CCD problem.

Light sensor?

The CCD is failing - contact customer support - a repair is not likely, but this component has been subject to a recall in the past - there there is a chance of a free replacement -perhaps maybe
