I bought my camera over a year ago, so the warrenty has gone. But before i take it to be repaired i wondered if there was anything i could do to fix it.
I turned it on last week, and the screen was red with streaks down it, and when u hold it up to the light, it changes colour. I can view old images on my memory card perfectly, and the settings screens are visible, i just cant seem to take a picture.

Re: NO IMAGES CAN BE SEEN THROUGH LENS????
I hope you still have this camera. This sounds like a defective Sony CCD issue. If so, Sony will fix your Minolta camera for free (with free shipping) regardless of warranty. You need to do this before March 31, 2008 so get going! See this link: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/news-item.pl?template_id=1&news_id=131#
The Dimage models that Sony is accepting for the recall repair are:
Dimage 7HI, 7I, A1, Xi, F300, XT, X20, S414.

Sounds like the focus motor came loose - you need to take it apart and repair the gear that drives the lens assembly for focusing. The noise you're hearing is the motor trying to focus but since the lens cannot focus it continues to run and signals an error.
I do not know how many times I've seen this question, and knowing that
I asked this question so many times in the previous years, I know the
The thing is the lens are gone, nothing can really cure it unless you
spend up to hundreds repairing it. If you still have the warranty, you
can send it up to the manufacturers, but other than that, it's either a
new camera or spending more getting it repaired.
I bought two nikon cameras, my first one got a bit of sand in it, I
only took it out once at the beach, and what do you know it says lens
error the next day. GONE. my SECOND one fell from about 2 feet-3 feet
also, the lens were pushed in and it made an EH EH EH sound, as for all
lens errors do. It was GONE.
My advice is to save up for a new camera , and get a SONY or CANON, or one w/out lense.
Either the lens is out of alignment, or the CCD or worse has gone defective. Either way it sounds like it may be worth it to just purchase a new camera. You do always have the option of repair as well. Thanks, Lee
No, even if you could find a lens for free this is not an easy camera to replace the lens on. Even a qualified tech would take up to an hour to replace. Understand that today's cameras low cost makes replacing the camera a better option than repairing a camera who's value used is less than the repair cost.
