Pictures look blownout and have lines all along the photo.

When I take a photo (doesnt matter if I am nusing flash or not) the photo is all white washed and there are fine lines along the entire picture. Does any one have any suggestions for what may be the issue?

    Because of your help I was able to findout that Sony is aware of the CCD problem and is reparing the problem for free. Thanks so much for the help.

    My camera was bought in May 04 and just now in September it started having the "whitewashed" and lines all throughout problem on my LCD screen. I first thought I had accidentally messed up the exposure or white balance settings. After trying everything, I realized nothing was going to work. Then I took out battery for a while and it would work like normal after inserting the battery back in?! Then about a day or so later, the problems reappeared. Taking out and reinserting the battery worked for about a month, now nothing helps. I saw the sony website and it said that it has a problem with the CCD setting and it will fix free of charge. But, then it takes you through steps to see if you qualify for this defect recall and it was only saying that the LCD problem is in the MOVIE mode, not the still picture mode, so I don't think I qualify because oddly enough, my LCD screen is fine in movie mode? Not sure what to do?

    I have the same problem...I'm just going to send it in to Sony to fix, as it seems like a mfg error, since nothing has happened to my camera to make it do this!

Take that camera in anyway. I still beleive you have a CCD problem.

There is a difference in the way the CCD shifts out data when in movie mode and that might be why you still have a good picture.

I personally replace acouple CCD`s on the DSC-F717. And yes Sony paid us on behalve of the customer.

Be nice to the front-end staff when taking it in. It might prove a very good investment.

Good luck.

When I scan a photo, my Brookstone IConvert photo scanner has white lines all over the pictures.

The reason it has white lines is because the glass is dirty in the inside. If it has one speck of anything inside the scanner it turns into a line because it stays in that one place as the picture slides over it. So that line is actually a dot that is covering the picture throughout the scan. The solutions don't work. I don't suggest taking yours apart. I took mine apart and cleaned the glass. The pictures scanned fine and then the lines show up again. The real solution is to get your money back if you can. It will do this over and over. It's a design flaw in the scanner. The picture is actually squeezed as it it scanned. As pictures are squeezed against the glass... residue builds no matter how clean your pictures are.

White cloudy spots on my images - a recent problem

If these are like "bubble" spots and they appear in different places on each photo, I'm guessing you're shooting flash pictures indoors. The spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash. This happens on small point-and -shoots because the flash is almost in the same plane as the lens.

There are lots of white lines on my photos. It doesn't seem to matter what the setting is, flash or not, and I've replaced the batteries which are new. The lines go accross each picture like a venitian...

Then unfortunately this is a problem with the image sensor on the camera. It would cost more to fix than to just purchase a new one. If you do go for a new one please recycle the old one at a location that takes e-waste. Sorry for the bad news.
Take Care,

Vibration alert - blurry pictures

sigswr50,

The vibration alert flashes when the lighting conditions are poor and the flash is turned off. You can still take pictures in this mode and if teh camera is well stable, the pictures will be sharp. In low light conditions like indoors, turn on the flash or set the camera to Auto mode.

sigswr50 and xenolette
You need to let the autofocus time to focus. Press and HOLD the shutter button HALF WAY and wait for the white rectangle on the LCD display to turn green. Then press the button all the way down to take the picture.

Pictures are dark, even when flash is being used

Press the FN button under the toggle on right side of LCD screen. You will see white balance on left. Toggle down to the "flash" symbol".  Should work a treat now. If not using flash go to FN again and raise ISO.(Don"t forget to go to Auto white balance again!!)
