Eight models of Sony’s Cyber-shot digital cameras will be recalled due to problems with the image screen caused by a glitch in the image sensor, which can cause the pictures to be displayed incorrectly. The recall affects models sold between September 2003 and January 2005, but Sony would not comment on how many cameras it applied to.
The models affected are the DSC-F88, DSC-M1, DSC-T1, DSC-T11, DSC-T3, DSC-T33, DSC-U40, and DSC-U50. A Sony spokesman said that the firm will repair all cameras that show signs of the fault.
The news comes in the wake of the firm’s global recall of around ten million rechargeable batteries following reports that they could over heat and catch fire, the repercussions of which were felt by every major laptop vendor in the world. Sony also declared problems with 20 other models of digital camera last October, offering to repair them for free as well.
