My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7

Hi and thanks for your help! After a year of being blown away by my wonderful little camera, I suddely have a real problem. Approx. 1/4 of the pictures I shoot (out doors) are corrupted files. Upon transferring them to the computer, either the frame just shows a gray rectangular frame that is broken diagonally, or it will give me my picture but what a mess. There will be anywhere from one to three different lines across (horizontally) and each will have a different exposure. Also sometimes the object(s) will be displaced from one exposure level to the next. Also there may be another line but Vertical! Have I set something wrong? Or is my camera broken/in need of repair?

    I've been having the same problem on and off for almost 9 months now. The camera went back to Sony's authorized repair service twice already and nothing was resolved. It's gotten to the point where we just stopped taking pictures, which is a real shame. When we take pictures about 50% of them have the problem.

    My camera just arrived and it has the same problem what you described... íim very very disappointed, I only bought it 'cos I'll travel somewhere. Do you have any idea how can this be fixed? Could it be just adjustment or too much light or something?

My flash went out on my (DSC H7) Sony Cyber Shot camera I need a replacement

If the built in flash is not working it might just not be worth repairing. Sony products when they are working are great but when they go down they can be a bear to fix and the cost is usually prohibitive when you combine the labor along with the price of the part.

Taking those cameras apart is real nasty business, with lots of real tiny screws and ..............U can either get a new camera or replace it with a used, working one on ebay - that is what I did.
