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 have the exact same problem. the image is jumpy and lines across plus the picture comes out that way, terrible! could it be the LCD? if so, I plan to fix it myself as it costs way too much to send to a repair shop. please give me some solutions to this problem as it would be much appreciated. thank you.

    I have the same problem. Does anyone know if SONY is still replacing these CCDs? If I try to fix this myself, anyone know how involved it is? Any service manual links?

    I have the same blurred, distorted image when I turn on my camera. Even when rarely, the image will appear normal on the LCD, when viewed on the print or computer, there is usually a blurred blue outline around lighter colors, particularly white. Has anyone found a solution or is Sony still honoring the repair?

    I think I also have the same problem. My LCD shows the image but when I capture, either I'll get a picture with a lot of jumpy/flickering white lines or I get a totally black photo or a very white exposed picture.

    Movie recording still looks fine. If it is the CCD problem, then movie recording should be bad as well, no?

    How to get Sony to warrant this when I have sent it in before to fix some watermark on my photo problem, which they claimed they had already changed the CCD. It is recorded in their database.

    Guess I'll have to retire my DSC-V1 :-(

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): or if they don't ship to europe, you can try the uk site- 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: 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]

This maybe two problems, the pink color hue in the picture and lines from lens shutter problems. Your LCD is still good. You have to replace motherboard and lens.

LCD screen 'flicker'

Try setting the video output option to NTSC (if it's on PAL). I know this sounds funny, but I have heard some rumblings about this option somehow creating a LCD flicker. If it doesn't work, I apologize in advance for wasting your time! My camera is on NTSC and I haven't seen any flicker on the file numbers on the LCD.
