According to a translation posted at Imaging-Resouce, Sony Japan has added eight more cameras on the list (see the next topic in this forum) of those that may experience a CCD fault:
  • Cyber-shot DSC-F88 [/*]
  • Cyber-shot DSC-M1 [/*]
  • Cyber-shot DSC-T1 [/*]
  • Cyber-shot DSC-T11 [/*]
  • Cyber-shot DSC-T3 [/*]
  • Cyber-shot DSC-T33 [/*]
  • Cyber-shot DSC-U40 [/*]
  • Cyber-shot DSC-U50
[/*]
The Japanese advisory states that these newly added models will be eligible for free service regardless of warranty status should any malfunction be caused by the CCD sensor, in the same way as detailed in the original service advisory.

Hi,

Love the forums, lots of good info. I bought a DSC-W1 in 2004, and recently began experiencing the problems mentioned in the press release (the LCD acting up, LCD freezing up, and at times, not being able to take pictures at all). I'm concerned because the W1 is not listed as one of the cameras affected, even though my problems seem quite similar to those described in the press release. In addition, from what I understand, one of the recalled cameras, the DSC-T1, has the exact same LCD than the W1; they also have a similar (same?) Super HAD CCD.

The press release doesn't mention how consumers are suppose to get the cameras repaired. I guess I'llcall Sony customer service on Monday. Do you think that they'll be willing to repair my W1 even though it's not on the recall list?

Thanks much!

Thanks

They are different, well the pixel count anyway.
