Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V1 Digital Camera
I switch on camera and while viewing on LCD, image flickers and jumps, gets horizontal lines across and changes colour (pinkish, or greenish/black parts)
I hope you will be pleased to hear that you'r eprobably eligilble for a free repair from sony. This is a known problem that many companies had with the CCD sensors inside the digicams, they finaly accepted resposibility one by one(sony being the last I think, 2 years after they stopped using the faulty CCD). Get yours fixed through here(the american site): http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/news-item.pl?mdl=DSCV1&news_id=118 or if they don't ship to europe, you can try the uk site- http://www.sony.co.uk/view/ShowArticle.action?section=en_GB_Support&articlesection=1&article=1128075116465&site=odw_en_GB or try one of the other countries listed here, and search for "important notice", or the equivalent in the local language on the box to the left: http://www.sony-europe.com/staticcontent/hub/hubpage_odw_en_EU_support.html?referer=http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/Support/ Good luck

If you can’t get the manufacturer to fix it or send you the parts you may want to try and fix it yourself. I found a guy in South Carolina who sells good used parts and will give you some suggestions on how to do it yourself. I bought a LCD from him for $39.00, fixed it myself and it works great. I think his email is [email protected]
