Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P51 Digital Camera
I had the same problem with mine. It appeared the CCD was faulty. Sony quoted big bucks to fix it so I bought a new camera. Curious about the old camera, I took it apart to see what was inside. To make a long story short, there i a ribbon cable that connects the CCD to the rest of the camera. The problem is that this cable stopped making a good connection. Wiggling it around restored the connection and the camera works just fine.
