Sony Cyber-shots Recalled

Sony Woes

On a Thanksgiving weekend, Sony announced a thankless bit of news: it is recalling not just one but eight models of its popular Cyber-shot digital cameras that were sold from September 2003 to January 2005. The LCDs in these cameras may be faulty and the cameras may not even be able to take pictures at all.

The cameras affected by the recall are: DSC-F88, DSC-M1, DSC-T1, DSC-T11, DSC-T3, DSC-T33, DSC-U40 and DSC-U50.

The recall is the latest in a series of blows to Sony, reflecting an apparently poor quality control in the company’s production line. Millions of cameras from almost all camera makers used defective Sony-made sensors last year, and a few months ago, the exploding batteries fiasco.
