Great Older Camera

bhadcandy, Amazon
18 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this camera to replace a very nice Sony camera that was inadvertently lost. Although it's an older model (came out in 2002), it is a great little point and shoot with many great features.

Black Screen Recalled (finally)

David T. Chiu, Amazon
25 December 2005
  • Summary: Sony has finally recalled this and other models for the black LCD screen problem. Other models being recalled include those listed here: [...] To issue the recall work order, call Sony 1-866-703-7669. I had just gone through the process, and it was rather painless. Hope this helps!

Yet another black screen victim...

Martin Paulo, Amazon
5 July 2005
  • Summary: My camera has also died. Yes, a black screen within the two year time frame... I shall be avoiding Sony products from now on! As an aside, if vendors are going to make "disposable" products (in this case it is cheaper to buy a new camera than repair this one), then I will only be paying "disposable"...

LCD black after 18 months

Rob1, Amazon
20 May 2005
  • Summary: My camera's LCD went black after 18 months like many others and I called Sony and of course they wanted to charge me $100+ to repair it. Because I am missing out on special moments witth my children as a result of the camera, I purchased a different brand with more MPs.

LCD Black Screen

Michael Perry, Amazon
31 January 2005
  • Summary: Mine died after 16 months of use, I was thinking about buying one of their $4,000 dollar TV's. If they don't fix this $250 camera I'm not spending any more money with them. I "formerly" thought of them as a high end electronics manufacturer. Addendum: I spoke with Sony on line.

A great camera for what you get

Satsuki "electronics geek", Amazon
29 November 2004
  • Summary: First off, I'd like to say that I've had this little camera for three years now. I'm now doing the research to buy a new one with higher MP, but this one is still going strong. If you're the type of person who just wants a point-and-shoot digital camera, this one will be pretty good for you.

Melissa, Amazon

Problems within 2 yrs if purchase

KaitlynsMommy "Heather", Amazon
4 November 2004
  • Summary: This was a great camera, for a while. Of course as soon as the warranty expired, it had problems. The first thing that happened (and also happened exactly to a cousin of mine with exact camera) was that you could no longer run USB cord directly from camera to computer.

Another black LCD screen problem

Karen Lee, Amazon
23 October 2004
  • Summary: I have owned this camera for 2 years (paid $280) and was well pleased with it until about 10 days ago. Then the LCD screen went black and pictures were black. After reading several reviews today from camera owners with the same black screen problem, I gave my camera a couple of whacks to the left...

I see I'm not alone...

mary_1979 "Mary", Amazon
21 October 2004
  • Summary: I got this camera a little less than two years ago, and generally, it's served me pretty well. However, about a year ago, I too began experiencing the seemingly notorious "black screen" problem.
