Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P51 Digital Camera

2 Answers

DSC P51 Trying to decide whether my camera is suffering from the defective CCD imager problem. I currently have a black image at all times, as if the shutter is closed. I removed the MS and reset the camera which didn't affect anything. On the Sony site it says to take a movie clip with sound then replay it. When I did that, it didn't replay the image and I heard no sound either. Does hearing no sound still constitute a prob with the CCD imager?

There is a seperate microphone to do that. Usually when the CCD imager is bad it cause a white screen to appear or the colors are distorted in the view finder.

I would take it into a camera shop and see what they say unless the battery hasn't been replaced recently.
