    My Sony DSC F828 is doing crazy stuff. I see other postings with similar problems. It sometimes goes to a rainbow effect with stripes and hyper colors and some times, often now, I get a white out. No photo. Sometimes also horizontal lines across the photos..

    well, it is better to know that the camera needs to be repaired professionally, but I am hesitant to put more money into this product that seems less than satisfactory.

    Well you should have given me this information, I see know you asking for another expert

    The issue here is with the /Ccd imager or /shuter speeds out of alignment

    This will need to go into the shop and be repaired its not something you can open or flip a switch,

    I know its hard thing to accept a failure and move on and get it fixed, Nothing much can be done over email and others will tell you the same thing.

    simple put here we are always here to help, For the amount you paid for service here at fixya to tell you the problem or root cause my solution should be acceptable,

    please do click the accept button, or reply to me

Smoke and water from tailpipe

That white color is a tell tale sign of a bad head gasket, when the head gasket goes your coolant mixes with your oil and the burns off causing the white smoke. I hate to give bad news but it's not cheap or easy to replace.

Hope this helps

Negative looking white screen picture

this tv has many problems in the scan converter/hyper bd. the wavy picture is very common the problem with the white not so much. However, I have seen them cause many odd looking video distortions and I suspect this is where your problem is. The part is usually kind of high, 250 + Labor i'd guess. If you get it somebody good they can probably repair the bd rather than replace it and save you some money. Either way i'd plan on 300-400
