This camera is about 2 years old and some of the images now appear lighter on one side of the picture than the other. There is a division right down the middle of the picture and it is light on one side and dark on the other This does not happen with all pictures taken ... only about 20% of them.
I am not sure if I chose the correct model.. none of those listed are on my camera but it is a still and movie digital camera

You can buy a new LCD and flex cable for $78 at the place Sanyo recomended to me. It takes a week for them to order it and a week to ship out. Call 1-800-421-5080 and give them part # 6450930331.
Mine has the same problem. I took it apart and by pressing on the flex cable my picture was restored. As soon as I let go the screen would go. Trying to decide between replacing the part or the camera.
it is a CCD failure try to contact Sanyo they might change it free of charge as other companys are also doing it is a manufacturing fault in CCD units see the link try it email them i am sure they will do it free of charge

My Sanyo Xacti VPC 60 has problem in battery. After taking 2 -4 pics the camera is OFF.
Right from the day of purchase we are facing this problem since last 1 Year.
3 Years warranty is of no use & Sanyo service is horrible i.e still for the last one month its lying with them with no solution.
Purchased from Shreeji Enterprise - R Mall - Mulund
I have intermittent problems of this type too. Occasionally I get a blank screen in the display mode.
Does the red light on the back of your camera flash while the screen is dark? Mine does.
It is beginning to bug me a lot. It may be because I got my camera wet in the past (and hence I have broken my camera), but I doubt that would result in a partial failure.
I think that the Xacti HD1/HD2 has issues a bit like a blue screen of death on an old Windows computer when faced with storage problems.
I.e. it works but crashes sometimes when it cannot store to its storage medium.
These things work for me
1) Turning the power on and off via the button underneath the screen.
2) Removing and re-inserting the SD card. 3) Turning the power on and off by removing the battery.
4) Using a different (and faster?) SD card. I am still using my HD2, but I am finding that I must attempt solutions 1-3 about once a day.
It could be because the card I have been using recently is not fast enough. The HD2 accepts both SD and SDHC cards. My SDHC card (which is newer) seems to result in fewer problems, either because the SDHC format is more suited to the Xacti HD2 or becaues the SDHC card I have is faster that then SD card I have. I suspect problems with the speed of the card. I am using cheap SD cards.
