Cyber-shot camera defects

Sony has announced the discovery of a defect in several models of its Cyber-shot line of cameras. Sold between September 2003 and January 2005, the affected models include the DSC-F88, DSC-M1, DSC-T1, DSC-T11, DSC-T3, DSC-T33, DSC-U40 and DSC-U50. The problem involves sensitivity to heat and humidity, which can cause the cameras to stop displaying LCD images, or to cease taking photos entirely. Sony is offering free repairs to anyone suffering from the defect. Reuters notes though that while over one million cameras were produced in the specified time period, Sony only anticipates a rough number of 4,000 needing to be fixed. Neither will this affect its earnings, the company says.
