Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Sony DSC-F88 5.1MP camera... When you switch it on to any of the program modes - image dispalyed on LCD and photographed is distorted. Image is skewed with the edges of the image flaring with three colours to the edge. A kind of focus shift..low resolution image - sort of semi solarised picture. Any previous picture taken displays normal on the LCD... I have tried other memory sticks.. no change..

Distorted Viewfinder Only In PIcture Mode


Yes, You are correct, it does not seem to be problem with the CCD. Insted it seems to be with shutter control or apparture control mechanism of the camera. Normaly there is one single cable carring signal to the shutter blade mechanism and the diaphram control. If this cable is damaged it shows the same symptoms as you have described in your mail. Get in touch with an expert camera repairer.
