You will need to describe what you see on the LCD in more detail in order for me to tell you what the problem is. There are two different issues that can cause things like what you are seeing. 1: Cracked LCD. You will see lines which resemble cracked glass. You will see bright vivid colors with specks of black or stark white all over. The image problems may be only in one portion of the screen. The LCD is made of glass, so if you look closely and see patterns that look like broken glass - this is your issue. Replace the LCD. 2: Bad LCD connection. You will see distorted colors, the screen may blank out and flicker when you shake the camera or press on the housing near the screen. If neither of these describe what you are seeing, post back and give more details and I will respond further. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Sony dsc f717 digital camera. Pictures are coming out as one big blur. Even my LCD and traditional viewer show one big blur when I look through them. I have worked with the focus, but to no avail. Camera...

Sounds like the CCD is damaged. Sony was fixing this problem free of charge but has since discontinued the free repair. If your camera was exposed to excessive heat, such as in a car during the summer, the CCD could be damaged from an iodine vapor within the camera itself.

Here's a website that has a few photos showing some distorted images from a bad CCD.

http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

The Sony websites that listed information regarding the free repair are no longer available.

I know this doesn't help your situation but if you can obtain a new CCD from Sony parts or similar, there's a YouTube video showing someone replacing one in under 10 minutes.

DSC-W70 Picture is yellow and blurred

Hi dbyinva

I have not yet heard of yellow pictures on the DSC-W70 and I know this camera very well.

It might be that you have a white-balance impurity problem causing the yellow glow?

Try to reset the software back to factory settings:

1. Put the camera selection knob to the `green` camera.
Now press the `menu` button.
Use the right arrow to move all the way to the little toolbox picture.
Once in the setup menu, use the arrow pointing down to move to the little toolbox with a `1`
Now press the right arrow again and then the right arrow when you have highlighted `Initialize`
Now press the `middle` button on the arrow control keys.
Camera wants to know are you sure - select OK again.
You will now have to input the date and time again.

Check to see if the photos come out correctly now.

If not.... it might be a faulty CCD unit and you will have to contact Sony for service information

Good luck

Sony Cybershot DSC-W70

Hey kimmc279,
According to the manufacturer the file error message should mean the camera experienced an error while trying to read the file. One thing you could try is formatting your memory stick in camera, and of course upload any images you have on it to your computer first. If that didn't work I would try initializing the camera back to factory settings, which can be done in the setup menu. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
