Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Shots taken outside have vertical lines running through the pictures.

Pictures taken outside have what appears as a screen of vertical lines running through them. This does not happen with shots taken inside. Reset the camera and it still happens. Any suggestions?

I have Sony Cybershot DSC T200 camera. It can take perfect pictures, but I can't see anything in LCD screen as it has colored vertical lines all over the screen. What can be the issue ?

If your pictures taken with the camera are seen when downloaded to the PC, the it is sure that the LCD is faulty or damaged.
The presence of vertical lines show that the processor driver to the LCD has failed. You have confirm cost of the new LCD before it can be decided.

Dsc-s730 camera . The subject appears very dim/purple when I take a shot. Picture appears same on lcd or pc. My lcd/ribbon cable must be faulty .? I can view old pictures on lcd screen perfectly .

a CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.

Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details: Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.

Hope this helps to solve it (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Vertical color lines on display screen

Hi!
If the lines appear while looking at the menu, then it's a broken LCD. If the lines appear only while taking pictures - faulty CCD. Contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at [email protected] and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.

Pink discoloration and vertical lines in light areas

Possibly a form of flare caused by including the light source in the image.
