Sony has released details of a digital camera defect that affects some of its Cyber-shot models’ liquid crystal displays. These problematic products, the exact number of which has not been announced, are thought to be in use in this region, as well as the rest of the world. The problem in question relates to the image sensor and can lead to an affected camera’s LCD display not being able to display images correctly, or at all, Sony’s Middle East spokesperson told Windows yesterday. The issue applies to products sold between September 2003 and January 2005, specifically Sony’s DSC-F88, DSC-M1, DSC-T1, DSC-T11, DSC-T3, DSC-T33, DSC-U40 and DSC-U50 Cyber-shot models. The electronics giant has offered to repair for free any cameras affected by the flaw, however Sony’s spokesman was keen to point out that this does not constitute an official product recall. Middle East customers experiencing display problems with their Cyber-shots are advised to call Sony’s support line on +9714 285 1485. This issue follows the worldwide recall of millions of Sony-made rechargeable batteries earlier this year, which were found to be at risk of overheating and catching fire. This recall affected a multitude of laptop manufacturers including Apple and Dell.
