First there were the problems with Sony-made lithium-ion notebook batteries and now Sony announced a major recall of digital cameras.
In this case the problem aren't exploding batteries but a defect in the LCD display. Sony says the problem is caused by a glitch with the image sensor, which may mean the screen doesn't display images correctly.
The recall applies to models sold worldwide between September 2003 and January 2005. The electronics giant will repair for free only cameras that show signs of the problems, according to Sony spokesman Chisato Kitsukawa.
The Sony DSC-F88, DSC-M1, DSC-T1, DSC-T11, DSC-T3, DSC-T33, DSC-U40 and DSC-U50 digital camera models are affected.
