Flickering LCD screen on Sony digital camera DSC-T1

Hi,

I have seen your responses on this website, which look very useful and I wondered if you could help me?

I have a Sony cybershot digital camera model no DSC-T1. It is nearly 5 years old. The LCD screen flickers and has a distorted image and does not take pictures properly at all (they are nearly as blurred as the screen).

I want to claim for the camera on my travel insurance, but the cover excludes mechanical or electrical breakdown and wear and tear.

Is this just because of the age of the camera (wear and tear) or does it constitute breakdown? I have dropped the camera a fair few times and its been in hot and cold conditions, so I am wondering if that is what has done it.

Many thanks for your help

    Hi,

    Even I have a 4 year old Sony cybershot digital camera (model no DSC-T1) and the LCD screen of my camera flickers too. Though I don't see or get any image. I just get a distorted black screen with some lights here and there. I will appreciate if I can be given some suggestions as to what should I do with it.

    Thanks,

    Anita

This sounds like a description of one symptom of a failure with a ccd imager chip that I just received from Welcomejee. Reading the document at the below link describes a black screen, a test you can use to see if that's the problem, and if so, you can mail the camera to Sony for a free repair. Here is Welcomejee's response:
