I took it to Camera House, and the guy checked it, looked at the lens, looked at the LCD display, they were all okay, and the prognosis was the sensor or processor has died.
What? Just like that? (click of finger) I was just devastated, I loved that camera! Now if that is what happens, say these technical things only last about 3 years on average, like car parts etc. Then that is a bit annoying. So my conclusion is, never take just one camera on a holiday destination, just in case it carks it, just like that.
fools talk because they have to say something.
I am however, going to get a 2nd opinion of the prognosis, just to make sure, before I decide what to do with it, and all it's possesions that belong with it, extra batteries and chargers and usb leads, and it's own original box too!
I once only ever had a problem with a digi cam, my first one, the Kodak DX6440, where in the first year, something happened to the lcd screen and could not read anything, it seemed to be bleeding underneath the lcd screen, so it was sent away and fixed up for me.
Oh and recently, I have had another digi cam problem, the very latest newest one I bought last month, (the Sony HX9V) I had to send it back, because it would not do the HD video, so had to pay for the postage back to Hong Kong (long story there)....but I recently just got another replacement camera back, and it works fine, thank goodness.
I now have this little joke with myself, if I have to choose out of many boxes of electronic items, to buy, I bet I pick the 'lemon' of the bunch

Danet… just throw the bleeding thing out… its just another piece of electronic junk…
Like motorcycles (so I have learnt) you need to ride as many as you can while you can… when I bought my first RIII motorcycle I thought that it would be the last bike I ever bought…
But since then I’ve had a Goldwing, another RIII, a GSX14 and when I get rid of that one we’ll be getting a Spyder … the mrs has also had a Virago, Vstar and Bonniville (which I’ve ridden all of them) they are all different and have all been a great experience… oh… I’ve also test ridded over the last couple of years.. the scrambler, speed triple and the hayabusa…
it's not rocket surgery...
Yeah, yeah.....I said yeahDanet… just throw the bleeding thing out… its just another piece of electronic junk…
