Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details: Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.



The Malfunction:
Among the CCDs used in the affected products listed above, it has been confirmed that, especially under high-temperature/high-humidity environments, the internal wiring may come undone in some places.

If this defect occurs, the signal is not output from the CCD correctly when in shooting mode, which results in symptoms like the following in captured images. These symptoms can be confirmed on the LCD monitor. The same symptoms may also occur in recorded images.
* images do not appear
* images appear distorted




Additionally, cpould read this article about recall and solve for free (not allways): Cameras-With-Defective-CCDs-Can-Be-Fixed-For-Free

Hope this helps.

Photograph of a pink sunrise came out grey


Shooting, with a lens pointing to the sun is always risky for the camera. It could damage the sensor. But with a ND filter, perhaps this could. Then when you are shooting in automatic and just jpg, the camera will try to set the white balance, so the sun comes out bright white. It was the brightest spot in the frame. If you shot RAW you could be better off, because the camera did not change anything to the white balance in rte RAW picture. At least you would be able to restore the colour in a photo editor program like Lightroom or Photoshop RAW.
In extreem light conditions, never use the camera in auto. Only when the camera offers scene mode for that condition, you could use that.

Stripes horizontal


The manual on page 122 says:
Vertical streaks appear when you are shooting a very bright subject. Cause / Solution : The smear phenomenon is occurring. This phenomenon is not a malfunction.
So when you are photographing in bad light, and some where in the frame is a bright light, from that light, white vertical strips can occur.
But you mention Horizontal lines. If this happens in normal light, outside, or in every light condition, something else must be wrong.
I wonder if bringing a 10 year old camera to a repair store or Sony service centre is worth doing.

Large, bright orange light streak in pictures


It does sound like a light leak, but hopefully all that has happened is that the foam seals surrounding the film compartment have perished and need replacing. With luck, this is unlikely to be expensive - check with your local camera shop or second hand camera dealer.
