I purchased my A1 new several years ago and it has been great until now. Outside pictures in bright sunlight turn light or white objects or background pink. Have I taken too many sunrise pics?

Can you post a sample shot that exhibits the problem?

That looks like a bad sensor. Here's a notice about the issue:

http://www.konicaminoltasupport.com/...tice_en.0.html

Sony is handling repair for them now (they'll have you send it to an authorized repair center).

http://esupport.sony.com/perl/news-i...mp;region_id=1

So far, they've been repairing them at no charge (even out of warranty) if it's the CCD.

Over a period of time, moisture can get into them and causes issues, and it's a more prevalent problem in areas of high humidity. It effected a number of cameras from KM, Sony, Nikon, Canon and others that used some of the Sony sensors with this design flaw (and most camera manufacturers using them issued repair notices that they'd be fixed free of charge for a certain time frame). It's my understanding that Sony had to eat the cost of fixing all of them.

Enter the camera information on this page:
